Bitcoin Will Flourish Using The Fact That Jim Cramer Is Almost Always Wrong

Back in early December, Jim Cramer, the host of CNBC’s Mad Money, had predicted that Bitcoin (BTC) was going to be annihilated for it was similar to ‘Monopoly Money’. He had also called Bitcoin suspicious for no one knew who Satoshi Nakamoto was. This was before the King of Crypto experienced its highest value of $20,000 a few days after his comments. His comments bashing BTC resulted in the digital asset doing wonderful gains in the market.

A few days later after BTC peaked at $20,000, Mr. Cramer once again predicted that Bitcoin would not replace Gold. He was quoted as saying the following:

“The jaw-dropping run in Bitcoin has been very exciting. But gold is not being supplanted by Bitcoin as the go-to alternative to actual currency.”

His comments were also wrong given the fact that during the ongoing crypto-market decline, many crypto-traders have found a safe haven with BTC. This then has led to the dominance of Bitcoin increasing from levels of 36% seen in May, to current levels of 53%.

He Was Wrong Before the Wallstreet crash of 2008

Going back further in time before the financial crisis of 2008, Jim Cramer had been quoted as saying that Bear Stearns was fine on his show – Mad Money. He is quoted as saying the following back in 2008:

“No! No! No! Bear Stearns is fine. Do not take your money out. Bear Stearns is not in trouble. If anything, they’re more likely to be taken over. Don’t move your money from Bear. That’s just being silly. Don’t be silly.”

Jim Cramer’s Most Recent Comments

Just yesterday, the 14th of August, Jim Cramer predicted that the Bitcoin will continue dropping in value because the tide had turned against BTC. He also stated that its price will level out around $800 – $1,000. Cramer made these statements on CNBC’s ‘Squawk on the Street’ where he said:

“This thing has really become like an outlaw currency…I think the tide has turned against it. I’m not saying its time has passed but there is a notion that the sun seems to be setting…Maybe we get back to a level…of $800 or a thousand”

Using the laws of probability, Cramer has on more occasions been wrong about Bitcoin than right. Therefore, his most recent comments can be used to predict that we are indeed headed for better times in the market. Perhaps even surpassing last year’s high of $20,000 per BTC.

Evidence of a potential market recovery can be seen with the increment of volume in the markets. The current total crypto market capitalization has gone back to levels above $200 Billion and looks set to regain levels of $250 Billion that were seen before the SEC announcement to postpone ruling on the Bitcoin ETF.

Bitcoin about to drop to 4k, how will the market recover?

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.”
