By CCN.com: The bitcoin price stumbled toward the end of the week but it looks like the bulls have gotten it together. BTC is now moving higher by nearly 7% to approximately $7,800 at last check on CoinMarketCap. The price had fallen as low as approximately $7,000 on Friday, and some traders have been calling for the bottom to fall out. It seems as though that won’t happen, at least not today.

Even though the reversal came suddenly and seemingly disrupted some weekend plans, nobody on Crypto Twitter was complaining.

Morgan Creek Capital Management CEO Mark Yusko points out that “bitcoin never sleeps,” which certainly paves the way for the rally.

BOE Official Suggests Bitcoin Could Replace Cash

There is a thread making the rounds on Reddit about a UK central banker coming to terms with the rise of bitcoin. According to the Reddit thread, Bank of England Chief Economist Andrew G. Haldane spoke to college students on May 17 and the topic of bitcoin came up. He was refreshingly open-minded. The Reddit member explained:

“One person asked what he thought of cryptocurrency and his response surprised me. He said it could replace cash; he even joked about us likely having bitcoin in our wallets. He said he didn’t think it’d replace cash tomorrow, but he was quite open to the idea 20 or 30 years down the line. He was also quite familiar with cryptocurrencies and joked that there were now thousands of them.”

It’s no secret that digital payments are usurping cash. But for the BOE official to recognize bitcoin as the digital currency that will eventually replace cash – even if it’s in two or three decades – is a strong display of confidence in the peer-to-peer currency. Even the cryptocurrency ecosystem knows that it is a marathon and not a sprint, so Haldane’s forecast probably resonated with many people. BitMEX’s Arthur Hayes previously suggested that bitcoin could replace cash a lot faster than that. But the fact that a central banker and the CEO of a bitcoin exchange are in the same conversation is certainly a bullish sign for bitcoin.

60 Minutes Effect

As CCN.com previously reported, CBS show “60 Minutes” will be airing a segment on bitcoin this weekend. Anderson Cooper has already interviewed Charlie Shrem for the program.
