According to a prominent asset management firm, BlackRock Inc. a company that was seriously looking into investing in cryptocurrency, virtual currency prices have improved significantly. All top ten virtual coins apart from Tether, have experienced positive improvements today with Bitcoin Cash leading the pack with a more than ten percent growth.

However, Larry Fink, the CEO of BlackRock Inc, seems to be taking things in a new direction with his reports that he denies any plans by the company to invest in cryptocurrency. Prices are yet to respond to the news, but if previous trends are anything to consider, then the current bull run might not last for long.

Virtual Currency Market in the Green

It seems that all the top ten cryptocurrencies except Tether are performing well recording positive growth statistics since the news emerged that BlackRock Inc. was looking into investing in the crypto market.

In the process, Bitcoin has reportedly gained almost 5% in value, crossing the $6,600 price level. The number one ranked virtual currency has increased by approximately 300 US dollars in a single day recording the highest 24-hour growth in the last one month.

IOTA, Cardano, and EOS have also recorded significant 24-hour growth levels.

Much of the current bull run being experienced is being attributed to rumors that BlackRock was preparing itself to invest in the various virtual currencies. According to unnamed inside sources, BlackRock Inc., the world largest ETF provider is gearing up a team to evaluate virtual currency and blockchain technology investments.

After a few days of stability in the $250 billion level, the cryptocurrency space has started to show robust growth, potentially eyeing a value flight to the $300 billion region thanks to the rally initiated by Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin.

On 16th July, the prices of Ether, Ripple, EOS, Bitcoin Cash, and Bitcoin appreciated by 3 to 8 percent, with EOS taking the number one slot of the digital currency that recorded the most significant gain amongst all the other leading digital currencies.

BTC volume, which usually is a key pointer for short-term growth, rebounded to $4.5 billion while Ether’s volume, the default digital currency for Ethereum, increased to about $2.2 billion.

On the world’s largest virtual currency exchange, Binance, Bitcoin’s volume against Tether’s (USDT), spiked from $130 million to about $170 million within 12 hours, recording a significant growth of about 31%.

The recent price surge Bitcoin gathered in its corrective rally from 6,250 US dollars to 6,550 US dollars could ultimately send Bitcoin to the 6,800 US dollar price level, which if attained, opens the prospect for an upward climb up to 10,000 US dollars.

For Bitcoin to move beyond the 7,000 US dollar price mark, it will require to be supported by a $5 billion bitcoin volume that will, in turn, allow digital assets and small tokens to record significant upward movements.

Over the past three months, Bitcoin has consistently been recording weekly losses with a steady downward trend. If the number one digital coin manages to maintain stability throughout the week over the 6,500 US dollar level, it is possible for Bitcoin to eye a mid-term rally that will take it to $10,000 mark, with even a low at 7,000 US dollar.

3 Altcoins That Are Outperforming Bitcoin and Will Likely Face Consequences

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…

For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…

After more than a year of declining prices, the crypto market is finally seeing a period of serious recovery — one that has already brought digital currencies to heights not seen in over half a year now.

Only days ago, Bitcoin surged past several major resistance levels and managed to exceed its yearly high of over $8,000. Already, many skeptics are predicting the soon end of the bull run, and the possibility of yet another sharp decline. However, there are signs that suggest otherwise — that this bull run is only getting started, and that it will not end anytime soon.

There are four reasons why this is the case, and they are as follows:

1) Bakkt

There is the long-awaited Bitcoin futures exchange, Bakkt, which recently announced that the July test date for Bitcoin futures is soon to be set. Bakkt’s launch was delayed multiple times already, so the announcement came as quite a surprise. However, it appears that it will happen quite soon, after all.

As soon as its arrival becomes a certainty, Bitcoin will likely skyrocket even further, just like gold did when gold ETF appeared in 2013.

2) Bitcoin completely ignored the hacking of Binance

Binance has been the largest crypto exchange by trading volume for a while now, and as such, many expected that, if anything were to happen to it, Bitcoin…
