For more details, read the matter original, but in summary form, Eugene demonstrated that the eve (with the rumors); the day; and a few days after an invasion was confirmed, they were – five out of five times – great moments to buy financial assets. In the article we also brought the performance of the bitcoin in the last 3 major crisis news in human history that had a strong impact on the market and, in all of them, Eugene’s pattern was repeated: With Bitcoin showing a strong fall the day before and a few days after the news, but recovering quickly with positive results from the thirtieth day (one month). The pattern appears to have repeated itself once again, with pretty impressive numbers on the price performance of Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market as a whole. Since the closing of the daily candle on February 24th (the day of the invasion), BTC has already accumulated appreciation of +18.63% price against the dollar. In relation to the low of the day, the high was more than 29%. As represented in the graphic below.

Both Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have been strengthening their fundamentals during this time of crisis so sad and serious for human history.
