March was one of the most bearish months for Bitcoin in 2020 so far, but things are looking good for Bitcoin and the rest of the crypto markets in this new month. In the first week of April, Bitcoin maintained a bullish outlook and with the price still hovering around the $7,000 mark, we can conclude that the bullish outlook is not just April Fools.
Some Bitcoin analysts have stated that $6,500 to $7,000 is a significant area for Bitcoin to cross in order to signal a bullish trend. After ascending from the weekly lows (close to the $6,200), Bitcoin surpassed the $7,000 mark, going as high as $7,300 on Tuesday 2nd of April. At the time of writing this post, Bitcoin was trading at $7,046.
With the stress of the coronavirus pandemic on the global economy and the threat a looming global financial crisis, many are drawn to Bitcoin as a safe haven asset. These uncertain times is the perfect opportunity for Bitcoin and the larger crypto market to prove their role as a store of value.
TPT is the most popular cryptocurrency on Coinmarketcap.
TPT means TokenPocket Tokens, it is the native currency of the TokenPocket platform that gives holders special benefits and a robust set of use cases within the app.
On April 1st, Coinmarketcap pulled an April fool’s stunt by placing TPT above Bitcoin signaling that it was more valuable than Bitcoin and making it the most popular cryptocurrency on that day. However, it wasn’t TokenPocket tokens that Coinmarketcap was referring to as TPT but a fictional cryptocurrency called Toilet Paper Token. This was done to mimic a surge in the price of the valued commodity (toilet paper)due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown and quarantine.
After having a good laugh, we took the opportunity to write a blog post about the real TPT (TokenPocket tokens). You can read it by clicking on this link.

Class action lawsuit against Block.one and other crypto companies
On April 3, Roche Freedman filed eleven class action lawsuits against seven crypto companies (which comprises of exchanges and token issuers) including Binance, BiBox, Bitmex, Kucoin, KayDex, Civic Status, Tron Foundation, Quantstamp, Protocol and Block.one. The lawsuits allege that the token issuers deceitfully created and distributed unlicensed securities to the exchanges.
Block.one responded to this by stating that although they are aware of the lawsuits, they are prepared to respond to any legal issues and that they have not received any claim. In 2019, Block.one reached a $24 million settlement with SEC for unregistered ICO.

Time to Exchange
Some crypto wallets have announced that there is an increase in the demand for Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in the past weeks even as traditional markets were falling.
During this corona-induced lockdown, governments all over the world are bailing out bit organizations and doling out free money to people in order to “stimulate the economy”. The US government has approved a 2 trillion dollar stimulus that would enable US citizens to receive up to $1,200 free money.
What would people be doing with all these free monies? Robert Kiyosaki (author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, a popular business/investment book) had some suggestions.
Robert stated in a tweet last week that the dollar is dying, that people should not save and that they should buy Bitcoin and precious metals instead so that they can be safe.
When governments start printing money excessively, it’s probably a signal that it’s Time to Exchange” your ‘fake money’ for true cryptocurrencies.
