3 reasons why Bitcoin will reach $50,000 before the year closes, Anthony Pompliano

Bitcoin BTC

There have been lots of predictions that Bitcoin would reach the $50,000 price mark before 2018 comes to an end. The latest one on the list is from a notable investment manager, Anthony Pampliano – he is quite certain that Bitcoin (BTC) would reach $50,000.

Pampliano is a well-known personality. He is notably the partner and co-founder at Morgan Creek Digital Assets. A firm that takes care of institutional hedge funds and talking about the latest from it, it recently managed to score a strategic partnership with an established VC firm, CityBlock Capital. Pampliano in an interview on Skype with Cheddar stated that the surge will be based on three essential factors: Human psychology, Bitcoin ETF speculations, and the entry of institutional money.

Pampliano stated this to Cheddar:

I’ve got a high degree of confidence that at some point in the future, it’s going to hit $50,000. And I’ve got some degree of confidence that it will be by the end of this year.

Anthony also stated that there probably are 30 to 40 percent chances that the price will hit the $50,000 mark before the year closes. Pampliano further twitted this on his Twitter profile:

It is important to note that the pullback in the price of Bitcoin in the last 48 hours or so was as a result of SEC’s disapproval of the Winklevoss BTC ETF application – but at the time of writing, Bitcoin has backed-up a bit and currently trading at $8,141 per coin (went below $8,000 right after the ETF rejection news). Pampliano noted that Bitcoin would be extremely bullish and surge higher.

His number one factor was the human psychology, and Pampliano has stated that his projected price mark was the next mega round number that lots of BTC traders would love and would drive the value to the $50,000 price mark. When Bitcoin’s price broke above the $8000 price mark, it moved above three resistance levels without being overbought.

Pompliano stated,

There’s a lot of speculation on the new ETF decision, [but] I don’t think it’ll get approved in the next 30 days or so. There’s a lot of people excited about that.

SEC’s approval on Bitcoin’s ETF is improbable, and the speculation about future approval is Pompliano’s second factor that would maintain Bitcoin bullish sentiment.

It is important to note ever since this month, the market has brought some bullish sentiments which have matched unexpected happenings such as the China and U.S trade-off.

Pompliano’s third factor or reason is on the institutional money. He said that the institutional money entry can surge Bitcoin’s price to $50,000. Pampliano is familiar with the activities of institutional investors since he is a partner at Morgan Creek Digital Assets. Pompliano states:

You can see institutional money coming into funds and future contracts so you’re starting to see really big volume in some of these products. I think that’s going to drive the asset.”

He also stated that cryptos are pleasing to hedge funds too, and there are looking for the chance to make big gains.

Finally, on Pompliano’s prediction, all we need to do is to keep our fingers crossed and see how the market turns out before the year closes.

The Crucial Role of Cryptocurrencies & Blockchain in Modernising The Telco Industry

Published

Blockchain has caused quite a stir in recent years. In fact, there’s a school of thought that firmly believes the digital ledger technology will prove to be the 21st Century’s biggest innovation

There are a great many industries braced for the disruptive force of blockchain, and the sweeping benefits it can bring to telecommunications can’t be underestimated. 

A blockchain is a decentralised, distributed, public digital ledger that’s fundamentally used to record transactions online. Every transaction that takes place is recorded across an extensive array of computers in a way that ensures that any individual record within the chain can’t be tampered with or retroactively modified. 

Because of the virtually impregnable security associated with blockchain and the efficiency that comes with a fully decentralised ledger, there’s plenty of potential for the technology within the telco industry in particular – especially given the financial flexibility that comes with cryptocurrency transactions beyond borders. 

Let’s take a deeper look at the important role that both blockchain and its associated cryptocurrencies can play in modernising and securing the telco industry:

Unprecedented security

The arrival of blockchain is causing a stir at Deloitte. The professional services giant has contributed tens of thousands of words on blockchain within its ‘insights’ network, and there are few more fascinating than that between the burgeoning digital ledger and…
