According to Clovr, the average Bitcoin fan (we should better say investor) is a rich-young-male, living in prominent places. These male folks are rich and are earning more than $75,000 annually, according to the recent survey.

Clovr, a technical blockchain company that has conducted the research done on more than a thousand people residing in America, is poised on making blockchain go mainstream.

So, as the survey shows, the crypto-world is well-dominated by young male folks, and this shouldn’t be surprising (we all have been hearing that the crypto is a male-dominant space). The survey has also shown that millennials are very much into cryptocurrencies than any other type of generation.

According to the survey, it has been revealed that most of these young male folks invest in cryptocurrencies in the hope of getting huge profits, rather than thinking cryptos will be the main medium of exchange.

Furthermore, more than 75% of people are conversant with what cryptocurrencies are, especially Bitcoin; also according to the survey, about 62% are self-reliant that they can explain what cryptocurrencies are to newbies.

About 70% of the people surveyed also voiced out their feeling on cryptocurrencies. They are uncertain on cryptocurrencies, given that the crypto sphere is mainly volatile and unpredictable.

More than 40% of these male folks have said that despite the volatility of cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, the main reason why they have ventured into cryptocurrencies was due to FOMO (Fear-of-Missing-Out). Others who do not invest in cryptocurrencies said the cause was not to lose their hard-earned funds (a good one).

According to the survey, also, the main reason why men control the cryptocurrency world is because men are more willing to take risks than women – no matter what the outcome might be (we do not say that’s 100% true).

To back up that fact, a survey in 2016 stated that women who are into digital trading take lesser risks. Nonetheless, it is important also to note that the number of women into cryptos are now growing by the day and it will increase once the general crypto-system is wholly decentralized and free of online thefts. In accordance with that, the United States has unveiled 3 pro-crypto laws to enhance the growth and adoption of the cryptos.

Tom Emmer, the co-chairman of the Congressional Blockchain Caucus, said,

Law-makers should be accommodating the latest blockchain technologies and offering a clear regulatory body that will make them grow in the U.S. This is an exciting time for blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies

Moving forward, blockchain is increasingly being adopted worldwide today, but most people still have the notion that cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin can’t be able to replace fiat currencies – not yet. For people to begin to recognize the fact that it would, cryptos need to be on everyday apps that people use for their daily activities.

Mike Cribari, the co-founder of Clovr states,

It’s hard for people to understand things like private keys and transfers. People need to be able to use cryptocurrencies more for things like buying their lunch.”

Applications and mediums to help cryptocurrencies be part of our daily lives are being worked on at the moment. With the launch of notable applications such as Bakkt, we should see Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies widely accepted by everyone very soon.

After more than half a year of price drops and losses in value, Bitcoin’s price has finally demonstrated signs of stability. For weeks, Bitcoin managed to remain above the price of $6,550 per coin, which was followed by a small price surge that has allowed the coin to reach $6,600.

Not only that, but Bitcoin’s volume also saw a 12% increase that has taken it from $3.2 billion to $3.6 billion according to CoinMarketCap. While this state of the market did not include all the altcoins, with some of them even experiencing losses, the situation regarding Bitcoin did look promising.

However, the new situation has changed that, as both investors and analysts woke up to the news of crypto prices going down.

Bitcoin volume predictions

Cryptocurrency analysts around the world have been predicting that the recently-balanced situation regarding Bitcoin and many altcoins will not last. While some believed that Bitcoin volume will go up, others have been claiming that it will drop once again, as it has finally happened.

At the moment, Bitcoin has managed to drop below what was recently believed to be its bottom, with a new price being at $6,297. Instead of reaching milestones such as $6,800, and then $7,000 mark as many have hoped, BTC actually dropped by around 6%.

For a while, Bitcoin has been showing signs that it is ready to grow once more. However, the trouble once again lies with the…

Today, the crypto-world woke up in a bloodbath, creating a lot of panic for the investors. Despite the expectations from 2018 Q4, the crypto-market is showing no sign of recovery as only one cryptocurrency in the top 50 is green at the moment.

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple (XRP), are all suffering in the dips and from the weight of the bears. It is important to know that as a result of today’s bearish trend, the market has laid off more than 5 percent of its value (US$13 billion) in the past 24 hours.

In the past 24 hours, Bitcoin has gone down by 4.26%, and it is currently trading at $6,289. So-called BTC competitors have accumulated bigger losses: Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Stellar, and Litecoin. Ethereum is down more than 11 percent, trading at $201.15; Ripple’s XRP in red by more than 13 percent, trading at $0.4047.

Bitcoin Cash price has also crashed more than 11.5 percent, trading at $450.91; EOS is down by 9.91 percent, trading at $5.30; Stellar has plunged by more than 11.8 percent, trading at $0.213; and Litecoin is currently in red by 9.50 percent, trading at $52.28. In short, the whole market in a severe bloodbath, pretty much like the global market.

Bitcoin whales, which is a popular term for BTC’s largest holders, have always been the largest influencers on Bitcoin’s price. In fact, many analysts, experts, and even regular investors have been tracking what the whales are doing. Their actions were taken as an indication of what’s to come, and whenever a whale was about to sell BTC, a drop in price was soon to follow.

This has earned them a reputation of the market’s largest destabilizers, which did not make them especially popular in the crypto community. However, according to new data, it is more than possible that Bitcoin whales are actually working on keeping the market stable, instead of causing more chaos, as everyone was led to believe.

Bitcoin whales are keeping the market in check?

Earlier this year, in August, a new rumor appeared, claiming that a $2 billion whale was disrupting the market’s already fragile stability. Reports of BTC sales as high as 50,000 coins per month have caused a 15% drop in Bitcoin’s own value. Speculation regarding these sales followed, with whispers of shadowy deals dominating the discussion forums.

Bitcoin investors, large and small, felt threatened by these giant holders, with many of them believing that the entire crypto world could collapse on their smallest whim. In order to determine whether these fears were justified or not, an intensive analysis was conducted. The analysis has targeted 32 largest known whales, with attempts to find…
