Is the market selling over yet? While Bitcoin alongside the rest of crypto market has stayed stable, the S&P 500 suffered a 10% correction which translates to be the worst month since 2018 when the stock market crashed terribly. The question asked is whether the almost decade-long finance bull market is at risk.

Perhaps, there’s no immediate trigger directly related to sell-off yet, but possibly the trade war between the US and China as well as the increase in Fed rates might have been behind the market turmoil. The current rout in global stocks might be a way the markets are telling the Federal Reserves that they are on the wrong course.

Some folks have their belief that the stock market crash has a lot to do with the upcoming US midterm elections.

Plus for Bitcoin and cryptocurrency markets in general?

The last time the global stocks crashed, investors had a shift to protect their money by investing in precious metals like gold and silver. But, that was back in 2008 when cryptocurrencies had not busted into the scene.

Almost a decade later, merely we may have a similar scenario in the stock market, and it seems like the crash has no impact on the cryptocurrencies, and hence, no signs of an inverse correlation. It implies that, just like gold and other precious metals, Bitcoin and the crypto market value, in general, depends solely on the supply and demand that’s within the market and is not affected by the global economic performance.

Therefore, it means that most individuals may seek to buy crypto coins-and since Bitcoin is dominating the market, it will significantly benefit. It is, therefore, expected that Bitcoin would do well during this kind of instances. One thing the shifting investors should be aware of is that the price of Bitcoin “always” keeps on fluctuating not like a mere 12% drop (it has become less-volatile in recent times though).

But predicting the price of Bitcoin in the future or the entire crypto market is not easy. And if someone is claiming to know the BTC price in the next ten years, is a liar. Sorry, but it’s the truth. But one thing is for sure, cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology are the future, and it’s predicted that there might be an increase in the crypto market to $20 trillion in the next ten years.

If the stocks fall, we may be in for a good run in the crypto market as there could be a spike in investors turning to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Currently, there is no denying that big profits can be made from buying and selling of Bitcoin, but we can’t deny the fact that losses can also be in the waiting.

As it looks, indeed, as the stock market is falling, only the crypto market seems to be the best option to follow and buying Bitcoin at a time like now would sound to be a wise investment decision.

The cryptocurrency rallied a few days back, but now, it has moved closer to 38.2% Fib level. Investors are enthusiastic that as it remains at this level for some time, and stabilize. The next move in Bitcoin price will take it to the 61.8% Fib level. This is when the hike in the price of the cryptocurrency will occur towards $4,200. However, after the surge in price, the upcoming weeks will see the Bitcoin falling swiftly to $3,000.

The truth is that if this move fails to occur, there may not be an improvement in the value of the digital currency. Also, this movement will enable the “bullish gartly pattern” we saw on the BTC/USD 4H chart to become a reality. Also, we are expecting that the Bitcoin price will decline the same way it has been recovering since early February.

Why this week’s closing price matters

Presently, Bitcoin price is still trading above what the intrinsic value is showing on larger time frames. However, we can see adequate room to accommodate short-term rallies. The price at which Bitcoin closes this week is very critical. It will be a clear indication as to how the digital currency will move in the coming weeks.

If Bitcoin closes at a price above $4,000, we are hopeful that the correction may come from early next week. On the other hand, any…

Stanford Lecturer praises XRP over Bitcoin

The world of cryptocurrencies continues to cause controversies even now, particularly when it comes to matters such as the superiority of one coin over others. According to recent reports, one student from Stanford University has stated that one of Stanford’s guest lecturers — Dr. Susan Athey — bashed the first and largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, while praising XRP.

Does guest lecturer go anti-Bitcoin?

In late February, Stanford’s student called Conner Brown came out publicly with a claim that Athey described Bitcoin’s network and protocol inaccurately, and that she also used the opportunity to make unfounded criticism. Athey, who also sits on Board of Directors at Ripple Labs — XRP’s parent company — supposedly also stated that XRP provides solutions to all issues mentioned in regards to Bitcoin.

According to Brown’s comments on the matter, the lecture in question took place over a month ago, and after attending it, he wrote an open letter to Standford, explaining the incident. In the letter, Brown claims that Athey inaccurately presented Bitcoin’s consensus protocol and overstated several issues, such as the threat of a 51% attack on the coins network, as well as Bitcoin’s mining centralization.

However, the main problem with the lecture, as Brown sees it, is the professor’s claims that XRP presents a solution to these problems.

The claims caused Dr. Athey to respond publicly via Twitter, stating…

The crypto market has started seeing gains in mid-February, with Bitcoin (BTC) following the bullish trend as well. In fact, the largest coin was on its way of seeing the first positive month since July of the last year. Even though its price was struggling to permanently overcome the major resistance at $4,000, the coin kept trying, and as long as its price doesn’t drop below $3,414, this goal can still be achieved

The return of the bearish trend which briefly overtook the market on February 24th caused a lot of damage, although Bitcoin managed to remain above $3,800. Following the crash, BTC started seeing minor gains once again, indicating that the bears have withdrawn for now.

What does the future hold for BTC?

As mentioned, Bitcoin can only complete a positive month if its price remains above $3,500 until the end of February. At the time of writing, the price sits at $3,807 according to TradingView, with an increase of 0.58% in the last 24 hours. As things are right now, it is likely that BTC might succeed in doing this, as its price performed relatively well ever since January 11th, even though it remained between $3,300 and $3,700.
