While the news may seem bearish for the crypto market, the fact that one of the biggest politicians is noticing Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market could actually be a step in the right direction. One of the other key reasons for noticing the cryptocurrency markets and commenting on them can also be attributed to the Facebook Libra project, which Trump has also had a lot to say. 
The fact that both Facebook's Libra as well as Bitcoin are being talked about by the Worlds biggest politicians could mean that they have finally realized the ability that decentralized blockchain ecosystems have. 
Trump concluded that the U.S Dollar is the only one real currency in the USA, saying "It is by far the most dominant currency anywhere in the World, and it will always stay that way."
Of course Trump was met with a huge response by the crypto community on social media. The fact that 10 years later, 'magical internet money' is now being talked about by the biggest politicians and organizations in the World is proof alone how far the industry has come. 


Money is a medium of exchange for goods or services within an economy

Therefore is Money

Some money is fiat, meaning it has no intrinsic value. That is, paper or metal used to create it is not worth much in terms of its value as a raw material.

That is USD
