A potential trigger of the BTC race
Alex Kryger said that the reason for this massive race might be the fact that Binance is banning US traders and this is definitely playing a role in this rally.
“In the short term, those exiting Binance.com, what asset do they use the most? => BTC. Even if it were not the main cause for the move, it gives larger players a perfect excuse to move the market. Other majors is stage #2, tied to re-balancing demand.”
Upcomimg Binance's issues with US residents = Bullish for $BTC. This was even clearer than with April's Tether "FUD". Speculators are supposed to act on meaningful news, not just theorize about it. https://t.co/7bAfEOiXTW

As we already reported yesterday, Binance platform is gearing up to ban the citizens in the US from trading on the platform, but don’t freak out because there’s a catch. The platform promises much wider crypto trading opportunities later.
There will be a few restrictions on https://t.co/9rMMAmtCxH accompanying this. But some short term pains may be necessary for long term gains. And we always work hard to turn every short term pain into a long term gain. https://t.co/gl1M1cwPYB

Changpeng Zhao posted on Twitter a couple of days ago about this and he warned users about some short-term “pain” that are coming but which will eventually turn out to be “long-term gain.”
