Following a tumultuous Friday evening in the cryptocurrency markets and a similarly shaky weekend, Bitcoin (BTC) managed to bounce back to levels above $6,200 late on Sunday and depending on your time zone. the King of Crypto had seen its value depreciate to new low levels of $5,800 on the same Sunday. BTC is currently trading at $6,183 and has exemplified stability in the last few days.

It is therefore not surprising that Spencer Bogart, a Blockchain Venture Capitalist, is very much bullish about the digital asset and the entire cryptocurrency market in general. In an interview with CNBC, Bogart stated that:

“I’m super bullish on crypto right now…I think the prices are pretty good right now if I was looking into going and buying something like Bitcoin”

He also cautioned against waiting for Bitcoin to bottom out as is the current conversation amongst traders hoping to buy a lower priced BTC:

“Most people that are going to wait for lower prices will end up paying higher prices than they are today. So I think the right move is to not try and time the market and try and average into it.”

Bogart would also postulate that the price of Bitcoin might drop a bit further as follows:

“If we go back to the summer of 2017 when crypto prices were booming, there was about a 100, 200, maybe 300 new crypto hedge funds that were formed…many of these funds are hitting their one-year lock up…They’re saying, ‘hey, I want to redeem out of that fund’…That means forced selling on behalf of all of these new crypto funds that have popped up. I think that could take prices artificially lower.”

To add on Mr. Bogart’s comments, many seasoned Crypto-traders believe the crypto markets are behaving like they are supposed to. After every market rally, there is bound to be a phase of serious market correction that will leave many inexperienced traders and HODLers panicking and force selling. The best course of action is to learn from previous mistakes of probably being caught up with the hype of Bitcoin and crypto that started mid last year. Once traders learn from their mistakes, they can make wiser investment options moving forward with ‘battle wounds’ in the form of losses and lessons.

It’s no secret that the cryptocurrency market (including Bitcoin) has been under a bearish run since last December 17th and it’s been going down steadily over the previous eleven months. But nobody was ready for the way in which the bears hit the market this November 14th.

It was just insane. The market capitalization for crypto went to its lowest point in a very short time. Bitcoin, which is crypto’s canary in a coal mine (so to speak) dropped below the 5k mark. It’s trading at $4,443 as we write this article and is expected to hit the 4k mark if things keep going in the same direction.

Can the trend change? Is there any good news to report? Any reason to be hopeful? The answers are: yes, yes, and yes.

The trend can and will change. We know this because drops as dramatic as the current one have already happened four times over the last ten years. Every time the market has bounced back to reach previously unexpected (allegedly impossible) heights.

About good news to report. There’s plenty. Blockchain projects like Ripple, Cardano, Stellar Lumens, Tron, and some others have reached impressive milestones this year. They are gaining adoption, becoming useful in the real world and securing strategic partnerships.

Also, even in the bearish climate, the crypto infrastructure has kept snowballing so you’ll be hard pressed to find any place in the world in which you…

Bitcoin is currently at the lowest price it’s had in a year and, yet, confidence and interest among the traditional financial industry (which has been very skeptic since it all started) keeps growing at an unprecedented rate. Switzerland, the world’s quintessential banking country, has green-lighted the world’s first exchange-traded product tracking multiple cryptocurrencies.

It will be called Amun Crypto ETP and will go online next week on Zurich’s Six exchange. It’s designed to track five cryptocurrencies and to index their market performance. The five digital assets in question are Bitcoin, XRP, ETH, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin.

Having your tokens managed by Amun will set you back by 2.5%. It’s expected for Bitcoin to be responsible for about half of the trade, with XRP doing a quarter of business and the three remaining coins at smaller percentages.

The Swiss exchange parent company is Amun, a fintech company based in London and founded by Hany Rashwan. Mr. Rashwan assured to the press that the ETP is built to meet all the same standards valid in conventional exchange trade used by investors all over the world. Mr. Rashwan added,

“The Amun ETP will give institutional investors that are restricted to investing only in securities or do not want to set up custody for digital assets exposure to cryptocurrencies. It will also provide access for retail investors that currently have no access to crypto exchanges due to local regulatory impediments.”
