The Future of Bitcoin: Why BTC Might Be Heading for the Moon

After a disastrous 2018, the current year seems to be a much kinder one towards crypto prices. Bitcoin (BTC) is once again a hot topic, and thousands of new accounts are joining its networks. Not to mention that the coin has managed to grow quite a lot in the past several months. However, there are many out there, in the crypto industry, who believe that this is only the beginning — an early stage of a massive boost that has yet to come and launch Bitcoin’s price to the moon.

These are the people known as Bitcoin bulls, and they have many reasons to believe that BTC is only getting started.

Why is Bitcoin more valuable than it might seem

One of the reasons why BTC might reach a far bigger price than the one it currently sees is the fact that it had done it before. There is hardly a need to remind anyone that the coin had a price of $20,000 per unit less than a year and a half ago. While the surge was sudden, hype-driven and the following correction caused the entire year-long crypto winter, it displayed some of Bitcoin’s potential. And, if the coin managed to do it once — it can certainly do it again.

Next, it is important to note that Bitcoin is still the leading currency in pretty much every aspect. It has the largest market cap, as well as the highest price. It has a limited total supply, which is rather low, thus guaranteeing that the coin must have a high value, provided that it turns out to be useful. And, as luck would have it, Bitcoin has countless use cases, only a handful of which are currently being applied.

Of course, the coin does have its fair share of problems as well. Bad reputation due to its use on the dark web several years ago still follows it. However, Bitcoin is a tool — one that anyone can use. The fact that it was used by criminals, and potentially, terrorists, should not be viewed as a damning factor. It was not made to be used by these people, but it is universally available, just like any other form of money.

Bitcoin is also still struggling with scalability, although this issue is well on its way of getting fixed with the Lightning Network project. All that will remain after that is mass adoption, and this is a gradual process that will speed up tremendously after the crypto sector receives proper regulations.

This is a coin brimming with potential, and one of its major uses in the future might be the replacement of gold. Unlike gold, we know exactly how much Bitcoin there can ever be. It can be just as universal, much more valuable, but also easier to manage and distribute. It is more effective, more practical, and more available. It is also extremely modern, the next step in the financial evolution of the entire world.

Conclusion

Moving towards digital money is a big step; there is no denying it. It is the biggest step since replacing material assets with paper money, and even that is a corporeal currency, with which we were able to familiarize ourselves with more ease. BTC, and cryptocurrencies in general, are more complicated as a concept, but a much better way of managing funds once you understand how they work and what they truly are.

Because of this, Bitcoin literally remains digital gold — only one whose true value and potential have yet to be discovered.

BTC Surged Again as A Safe Haven Asset During Global Tensions

  • India – China Border Conflict

After weeks of squabbling and brawling along their long-disputed border, hundreds of Indian and Chinese soldiers engaged in a deadly clash Monday in a river valley that’s part of the region of Ladakh last week. Troops had massed on both sides of the border in recent months in the northern India region of Ladakh and the southwestern Chinese region of Aksai Chin, causing global concerns of a potential escalation between the two.

  • North and South Korea Clash

Last Tuesday, North Korea destroyed the liaison office it jointly operates with South Korea in the city of Kaesong, just north of the demilitarized zone that separates the two countries. 

North Korea also said it would send troops to now-shuttered joint cooperation sites on its territory, reinstall guard posts and resume military drills at front-line areas in a violation of separate 2018 deals with South Korea. Jeong said South Korea will take “immediate, swift and corresponding” steps to any North Korean provocation.

The tensions grown in Asia and the potential “second wave” of coronavirus in the United States may add more difficulties to the global economic recovery. Thus, Bitcoin, as a safe haven asset, attracts more investors to…

Cryptocurrency Fraud is Evolving; Bitcoin ATMs Mitigate Risk

Cryptocurrency Fraud is Evolving
READ LATER - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS PDF

In one of the more overlooked aspects of the crypto ecosystem, it appears that the bulk of illicit activities are shifting from hacks and thefts to cryptocurrency fraud and scams.

CipherTrace, the crypto-surveillance, and analysis firm released a report at the end of Q4 2019 that revealed hacks and thefts had decreased by 66 percent in 2019 while fraud and misappropriation of funds surged by 533 percent. And beneath the COVID-19 hysteria of 2020, hacks in the crypto sector have been eerily isolated. 

Outside of a few exploited flaws in P2P exchanges and DeFi flash loan vulnerabilities, the headline-grabbing hacks of exchanges for hundreds of millions of dollars have been absent so far this year. Is the industry due for another massive hack, or are stringent KYC/AML processes, regulatory crackdowns, better security practices, and blockchain surveillance working? 

KYC/AML Improvements Are Reducing the Appeal of Crypto Exchange Laundering 

2020 is far removed from the no-KYC wild west days of the early-mid 2010s where anonymous altcoin casinos preponderated and the Dark Underbelly of Cryptocurrency Markets thrived. 

Today, bitcoin and the crypto ecosystem is becoming institutionalized with a surfeit of derivatives (e.g., options, futures, perp swaps, etc.) available on…
