Harumi on Bitcoin Price Trends as $20K Looms Again

Rachel McIntosh of the Finance Magnates interviewed Harumi Urata-Thompson among other cryptocurrency experts on Bitcoin’s potential to break the $20,000 price threshold. In particular the news analysis focused on what’s different in the environment for bitcoin in 2020 from that of 2017.

Key themes on what’s different include:

This Time, Bitcoin’s Price Rally Is More Stable and Seems to Be Driven by Larger Players

Growing Institutional Interest Is Feeding Bitcoin’s Rally

But, as Harumi described it,

“whenever the market had some peak and came down the way Bitcoin did in 2017, it does create a psychological (and physical, as there will be a lot of sell orders that will be placed around that level) top that will take a bit more than a few buys to breakthrough.”

November 4, 2020 – The Block Babes Interview Harumi On Cryptocurrency Lending

The Block Babes Interview Harumi on Cryptocurrency Lending

The Block Babes host a weekly webcast event, “Today in Tech”.  In this episode, Harumi Urata-Thompson was interviewed by the three GenZ blockchain advocates who comprise The Block Babes team. The trio have made it their mission to promote financial education in the area of blockchain technology, decentralized finance and cryptocurrency. Their topic today was about Harumi’s latest endeavors as CFO at Celsius Network.

In the webcast, Harumi talks about:

What is Celsius Network and how does it work?

How does Celsius Network pay interest?

How has Harumi’s career trajectory evolved to get here?

Celsius Network has emerged to become one of the most popular cryptocurrency lending platforms.  Against this backdrop, Harumi provides an inside view of crypto lending business models that are driving some of the biggest trends in cryptocurrency today.

Celsius Network enables interest-bearing cryptocurrency accounts and low-fee lending that utilizes cryptocurrency as collateral.  Companies like these platforms have grown significantly since they allow users to earn a substantial passive income on cryptocurrency digital assets, particularly in comparison to fiat-based savings account interest rates. They often offer higher interest rates on savings accounts and loan rates that are generally lower than traditional alternatives.

The Block Babes video channel on pscp.tv and YouTube were created in efforts to bring awareness about blockchain technology, decentralized finance, and education to the younger generations. They are a self-described group of “GenZ girls that fell in love with blockchain technology and the ability to build and capitalize on it.” The Block Babes believe that financial freedom is so important yet it’s not common knowledge or something you typically learn in schools.
