Fundstrat Global Advisors CEO and Crypto Bull, Thomas Lee has made a bold prediction for the Ethereum price by the end of next year. In a report by Bloomberg, Mr. Lee is quoted as saying the following:

Ethereum is about to stage a trend reversal and rally strongly. Sentiment is currently overly negative.

Lee further added that when Ether has underperformed other digital assets by two-standard deviations, ETH always reversed those losses. He went on to add that he sees Ethereum price reaching $1,900 by the end of next year.

Other Factors that Could Lead Ethereum price reaching $1,900

Blockchain, the European cryptocurrency wallet provider, launched an Over The Counter (OTC) desk to execute large trades off public exchanges such as Coinbase and Kraken. This move pivots Blockchain in a position to attract more institutional investors into the crypto space. Blockchain joins other OTC providers such as DRW and DV Trading in Chicago.

With Ethereum being the second most popular digital asset in the cryptocurrency markets, the institutional investors are bound to want to purchase it and HODL through the new OTC desk by Blockchain.

Secondly, the firm known as Bakkt is slated for launch this November. The firm has the backing of the New York Stock Exchange, BCG, Microsoft, Starbucks, an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group, Eagle Seven, Galaxy Digital, Horizons Ventures, Alan Howard, Pantera Capital, Protocol Ventures, and Susquehanna International Group, LLP.

Bakkt aims at building solutions for the buying, selling, storing and spending of digital assets, based on already existing time-tested futures markets. The firm made an announcement of their first futures contracts via a tweet that said:

Our first contracts will be physically delivered Bitcoin futures contracts versus fiat currencies, including USD, GBP and EUR. For example, buying one USD/BTC futures contract will result in daily delivery of one Bitcoin into the customer’s account.

This then states the stage for an exciting period in the crypto-markets as the year comes to an end. A Bitcoin rally will translate to Ethereum also making some impressive gains.

Thirdly, the cryptocurrency derivative platform of LedgerX is reported to be preparing to expand its cryptocurrency portfolio to include Ethereum (ETH).  The firm prides itself as being the first federally regulated exchange and clearinghouse to list and clear physically settled Bitcoin swaps and options for the institutional investors that are found on Wall Street.

According to The Block,

The company, however, is waiting for regulators from the Commodities Futures and Trading Commission to get comfortable with the product before making it available to its clients. The source told The Block that approval could come after a regulatory meeting October 5.

Summing it up, Thomas Lee has made a bold price prediction in stating that Ethereum will make it to $1,900 by the end of next year. With the digital asset struggling to rise above $220, the above three factors could be the boost that ETH needs in the markets to reach this price prediction and extinguish any fears of ETH crashing in the markets.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
