Cryptocurrency holders around the world breathed a huge sigh of relief after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell declared that the U.S  has no plans to ban cryptocurrencies.

Powell’s comments came during the Treasury’s Department Pandemic response hearing in which he stated that Bitcoin along with other cryptocurrencies will not be banned.

The chairman’s comments comes weeks after China issued a ban on cryptocurrency.

China’s ban on crypto made Bitcoin take a slight dip but now that the U.S. has clearly announced they will not be following China’s lead, Bitcoin saw a 9% spike.

On Thursday afternoon during the Oversight of the Treasury Department’s and Federal Reserve’s Pandemic Response hearing Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell confirmed that the U.S. has no plans to ban Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

During the hearing, House Representative Ted Budd (R-N.C) questioned Chairman Powell about the state of inflation in the United States. Powell deflected the inflation questions, claiming the inflation in this country is due to the oft-repeated supply chain crises caused by the Government’s pandemic response.

Effectively the chairman said that the Fed’s hands are tied when it comes to inflation and that relief will come. Powell suggested inflation should go down in “the first half of next year.”
