The Final Countdown 

Bitcoin is trading lower slightly today, down $136 or 0.5% as of 7:40 EDT. We have seen muted action lately not giving us many hints as to the future direction of the asset other than Friday’s exaggerated low. 

The CPI report for April 2023 was released earlier today showing that overall inflation is slowly calming down however services and food cost remain sticky.

Balaji Srinivasan, the former CTO of Coinbase, has closed a bet ahead of time in which he had predicted Bitcoin's price would reach $1 million per BTC. The bet was settled at a price of $29,562, which is 97% lower than the target price. Instead of losing the bet, Srinivasan has donated a total of $1.5 million to three different entities as a settlement.
