Which factors affect Bitcoin value?

What is the Costa Rican Colon (CRC)?
Costa Rican Colon (CRC) is the official currency in circulation in Costa Rica which was introduced in 1896. It is named after Christopher Columbus, which in Spanish is Cristobal Colon. Although the Costa Rican Colon exists for more than one hundred years, the first currency in Costa Rica was the peso. An interesting fact about the CRC is that until 2006 its exchange rate regime was characterised as “crawling peg” where its value was tied to the US dollar. So, instead of having a fixed value against the USD, the CRC value was adjusted on a monthly basis.
Which factors affect CRC value?
The CRC has significantly decreased in value many times – it weakened by a couple of percentages against the US dollar resulting in devaluation. Keeping this in mind may help provide profitable trades with the BTC/CRC.
Economic, political or social factors can also affect CRC value. For instance, a national strike which took place in Costa Rica boosted the inflation rate, which combined with other factors resulted in a CRC devaluation.
The balance of trade between Costa Rica and the US also has an impact on the rate, which in turn affects the BTC to CRC exchange rate. Furthermore, Costa Rica is perceived to be among the most developed countries in Central America, which shows certain stability. However, an increase in public debt, negative economic events and changes in interest rates have a significant impact on the value of its domestic currency.
When trading BTC to CRC, you may want to keep track of the developments in the tourism and agricultural sector in Costa Rica as these sectors are among the most important in the economy.
