Right now, Bitcoin is trading at $ 15,572 according to the CryptoTrend tool, Crypto Online.
However, the stock market, despite having been in the green yesterday; today the Dow Jones received a hard blow and fell 66.78 points, which corresponds to a fall of 0.24%. Also, the S&P 500 lost one point earlier today.
The reaction of the markets is as a consequence of the United States elections. Currently Biden has a clear advantage and, although he has not yet reached the necessary 270 referees, the numbers point to his victory.
Consequently, the markets react to Biden’s victory and the possible passage of a bill for the relief of the coronavirus, that is, the Fed will have more work.
The stock market has reacted negatively to the events but the leading crypto continues to point upward.

Just today Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, wrote a Tweet pretty funny where he said: “Bitcoin tells DeFi: Grab my beer.” This as a way of saying that now it is Bitcoin’s turn to show what it is capable of.
