Bitcoin (BTC): Another Big Bull Run is Coming

Published

on

Bitcoin

There is no denying that the last few months since December 2017 have been a bumpy ride for the King of Crypto: Bitcoin (BTC). Mid-December found BTC reaching for the sky at levels of $20,000. A little over six months later, on June 29th, the same BTC was valued at $5,800. This was a significant drop in value of 71%. Some have called it a massive correction, while others have speculated manipulation due to Bitcoin futures contracts.

Whatever the reason, there are a few reasons to be Bullish once again about BTC.

To begin with, Coinbase has just showcased its new service by the name of Coinbase Custody. This new service is geared towards institutional investors and high net individuals who want a secure place to store their digital assets. Coinbase will provide cold storage for such institutions and individuals at a fee that will cover additional benefits such as insurance. This means that the billions, if not trillions of dollars from Wallstreet, is headed towards the crypto markets and Coinbase providing a secure avenue for that.

A second reason to be bullish about Bitcoin is the ongoing regulatory progress with regards to the King of Crypto. The American SEC has already declared it is not a security. Therefore, this paves the way for institutional investors to buy it in the regular crypto markets. The country of Malta has also passed 3 bills to regulate crypto and their exchanges in the country. This is why Binance is planning on opening a crypto exchange there. Other countries that have shown an interest in regulation are Japan, Australia, South Korea, Philippines, Indonesia as well as Kazakhstan.

Once the question of regulation has been solved, it is all systems go for a bull run in the crypto markets as we head into the second half of 2018.

A third reason why we are headed for another BTC bull run is the fact that the CBOE Global Markets, have filed for a new Bitcoin ETF license application with the SEC. Even though the SEC has declared that they will not be regulating BTC directly, ETFs are marketable securities that track an index, commodity, bonds or a basket of assets. This means that ETFs can track the price of a crypto index with BTC in it.

Finally, the country of Australia has recently partnered with IBM in a bid to catapult the country into the front row of blockchain and technology advancement in the world. IBM has already partnered with Stellar (XLM) making the case for crypto and blockchain adoption stronger. This means that the government of Australia will slowly but surely become more crypto friendly with time. As a result, BTC will prosper.

In conclusion, the decline of BTC and the crypto markets seem to have been abated by the recent signs of progress exhibited by regulatory clarity; Coinbase Custody services; the ETF application by the CBOE; and the Australian government partnering with IBM. This means that the future is bright for not only BTC but the entire crypto markets.

Wisebitcoin Launches Professional-Grade Crypto Exchange

Published

on

Infrastructure is developing rapidly in the cryptocurrency industry, but the recent launch of the Wisebitcoin cryptocurrency exchange is nonetheless significant in terms of the immediate value it provides to cryptocurrency users. That’s because the exchange has had a beta version available since 2018 while continuing further developments in stealth mode, and already serves over 1.2 million end users with $6+ billion in 24 hour trading volume at the time of its official launch.

In addition to the large user base and deep liquidity, Wisebitcoin also stands out by offering up to 100x leverage to margin traders, with the ability to open a long or short position in their futures market. In the current bullish environment, leverage is a key way that experienced traders increase their exposure and try to profit from volatility.

For example, if a user opened a long position on ETH on January 2nd at a price of $750, they could have greatly multiplied their profits with even a small amount of leverage such as 5x as ETH reached over $1,100 within 48 hours. A simple unleveraged position would have netted $350 in profit, but a 5x position would have netted $1,750 and a 100x leveraged position would have netted an incredible $35,000 in profits from an initial investment of just $750. 

Beyond leverage, Wisebitcoin additionally offers a simple and…
