Stimulus update: If you bought Bitcoin with stimulus check, you could have more than $11K in profit by now
People who used their first $1,200 stimulus check to purchase Bitcoin could have cashed out for as much as $11,000, as of this week. Newsweek reported in mid-April 2020, the average price of Bitcoin was around $6,000-$7,000 but it’s skyrocketed in recent months. With the price of Bitcoin fluctuating, investing the second and third rounds of stimulus checks would have netted less profit.
