According to Decrypt, after the news about the procurement of 1.5 billion dollar of bitcoin by Tesla was published. Several large companies also announced their interest in buying and accepting bitcoins in the news. The price of the largest cryptocurrency reached a new historical record. But in the last few days, the price of Bitcoin has fluctuated in the range of $ 48,000. Bitcoin price stability has allowed the Altcoins the opportunity to move upwards.
Someone who has put money into cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin for more than a few months will be having knowledge that the efficiency of the Altcoin market is closely related to the proficiency of Bitcoin.

Has the Chinese New Year holiday affected currency prices?
Chinese New Year and its 16-day holiday, which started on February 12, usually lower the price of digital currencies as Chinese investors sell some of their coins at this time of year. However, analysts believe that a large share of the market now belongs to Western institutional investors, and therefore, the Chinese New Year will not have much of an impact on the price of bitcoins and coins.
A division of multinational Morgan Stanley, one of the world’s largest financial companies, is considering investing in Bitcoin, Bloomberg reported.
According to CoinDesk, Morgan Stanley’s investment division is called “Counterpoint Global” which invests in future long-term projects. The company has more than $ 150 billion in assets under its management.
Bloomberg noted in its report that the team needs the permission of companies and lawmakers to invest in Bitcoin. This investment is not the first move of Morgan Stanley to Bitcoin. The company currently owns about 11% of Microstrategy. Microstrategy has invested a large portion of its assets in Bitcoin. Recent reports show that most investors are holding bitcoin instead of spending it. This action raises the price of bitcoin.
