The cryptocurrency Tezos has shown a dramatic bullish trend recently. Considering the performance of the past month, the XTZ/USD pair has gained +$ 0.37, soaring nearly 1.76%, to trade at $ 5.71330. Over a period of six months, the XTZ/USD pair has gained +$ 3.69 or 64.75%, while the pair has reported a dramatic gain of +$ 2.871, or 283.54%, on the yearly time-frame. Currently, the XTZ/USD Live Price chart suggests that TEZOS (XTZ) is trading at $ 5.710. The market cap of Tezos is USD 4,354,487,779, and currently, 248,507,281 in XTZ are circulating. 

Tezos (XTZ) is one of the smartest contract platforms that has a couple of unique features. Kathleen Breitman, the Co-Founder and CEO at Tezos, states it’s strengths is that Tezos is a decentralized, open-source blockchain network that can perform peer-to-peer transactions and serve as a platform for deploying smart contracts. Tezos is also known as tez or tezzie, which has the symbol XTZ. XTZ had a market capitalization of about $1.6 billion so far, which makes it the 18th most precious cryptocurrency in the market. Apart from this, the Tezos has one more unique feature, which is called the Proof of Stake (POS) consensus mechanism. Proof of Stake (POS) enables users to confirm transactions without the troubles of mining, which requires expensive hardware and technical expertise.

Let me explain to you that the Proof of Stake (POS) has been gaining a lot of ground over Proof of Work (POW) recently. Thereby, Tezos is the most successful cryptocurrency to offer staking. The popularity of staking could be considered as one of the leading factors that tend to underpin the Tezos value. That was witnessed after Tezos got significant support in 2019 and 2020 compared to the rest of the market. The price of Tezos surged more than expected between October 2019 and February 2020 and reached record highs.

From the historical point of view, Tezos, proposed by the husband and wife team of Arthur and Kathleen Breitman, raised the equivalent of $232 million in an initial coin offering in 2017. It is worth mentioning that it was Arthur who first introduced the idea for Tezos, all the way back in 2014. That’s why they are the two most important characters on the Tezos team. He started by publishing a white paper that laid out the foundation for the Tezos cryptocurrency. Afterward, his wife Kathleen joined the project and they created Tezos.

Factors Affecting Tezos Price:

Many cryptocurrencies are currently uncontrolled by governments and central banks. If there would be some changes in the coming years, it could have an impact on the value of Tezos.

Supply and demand – One of the key factors that influence the cryptocurrency price is supply and demand. The higher the demand and lower the supply, the higher the price. Conversely, if demand is low and supply is high, the prices of the coin will decrease.

The supply of cryptocurrencies is limited. Moreover, over time it starts to slow down. Therefore, the demand for assets will likely exceed the available amount. The demand for individual cryptocurrencies may vary greatly. This in turn is influenced by a multitude of other, specific factors that distinguish a given virtual coin from others.

 Mining – Cryptocurrencies do not come from anywhere, but Crypto miners extract them by using specialized equipment called excavators. This method becomes more difficult day by day. If the cost of extracting virtual currencies rises, it tends to underpin the prices of the coin.

Rules and regulations – The rules or requirements introduced by national authorities also leave a notable impact on cryptocurrencies. If the rules become quite restrictive, it may leave a bearish impact on cryptocurrencies. Conversely, if they speak kind words of the crypto industry, it will have a bullish impact on cryptocurrencies.

 Power of the media – Media is seen as one of the key tools that can help or harm cryptocurrencies. They are considered a type of spindle that drives moods among investors. Normally, the good news will leave a bullish impact on it, while bad news can cause panic, which leads to a quick fall in cryptocurrencies. 

Financial crises – The cryptocurrency prices also rely on the economic situation in the concerned countries. If the country’s financial system starts to fall, people start to panic and run into other assets.
