Bitcoin is taking roots in Africa, and here is another sign of it in Gaborone, Botswana Last week was merely up and downs but the week ended on a very good note with Bitcoin burgeoning again and threatening to hit $3000 soon. Bitcoin Core’s transaction malleability fix and scaling solution Segregated Witness (SegWit) was activated on Litecoin last week. Since then, Litecoin price massively increased at an exponential rate, due to rising interest from investors and traders. New reports suggest a “Russian Bitcoin” developed by banking partners will be the country’s only freely exchangeable cryptocurrency. On May 25, cryptocurrency trading volume hit $4.3 bln. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin and NEM drove the cryptocurrency trading volume to new all-time highs. Ethereum Classic (ETC) is yet to profit from Chinese optimism spilling over from Bitcoin and altcoin markets.
