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.

What Caused So Many Investors to Turn to Bitcoin in 2017?

Bitcoin (BTC) has been growing increasingly popular in recent years, especially in the last two. About five weeks ago, the coin celebrated its 10th birthday, however, while it has been an entire decade of its existence, it was basically unknown to anyone who is not a particularly interested in new technologies. This all changed in 2017, when Bitcoin’s price skyrocketed from $1,000 to $20,000, making it the biggest trend of the year.

Suddenly, the entire world heard of its name, and cryptocurrencies finally got their place under the spotlight. Investors continued to arrive at the crypto space, cash was flowing, hundreds of new coins emerged, and more optimistic analysts predicted Bitcoin’s price going even higher, potentially reaching $50,000, $100,000, and more.

However, as we know today, it was not to last. 2018 was barely a few weeks in when the market crashed, the prices started dropping, and investors started selling. The profits were quickly lost for anyone who did not cash out in time, and these days, Bitcoin’s price sits at around $3,812. The crash reminded everyone that cryptocurrencies remain as volatile as ever and that they still pose a risk for investors. But, people already knew this, so why did they invest in the first place?

The cryptocurrency space is growing larger and has more impact on our everyday life with each new year. Despite the low prices and market crashes in 2018, the situation on the market seems to be taking a turn for the better, especially after a new surge that started on February 8th. However, as we progress through another year of cryptos’ fight for survival and adoption, the 2020 US Presidential Elections continue to approach.

With that in mind, it might be worth knowing what the current major Presidential candidates think about the crypto space, and Bitcoin (BTC), in particular. Of course, no one can know who will get elected and whether the next US President will be a crypto investor or someone who will have no problems with imposing even stricter regulations that might limit the market’s potentials.

Even so, we can at least see what they had to say about the crypto industry, and form some sort of expectations regarding the future based on that. It should be noted that the list does not include every candidate, only the major ones, and those who decided to take a notable stance towards Bitcoin.

1) Cory Booker

Let’s start with the Democratic candidates, the first of which on our list is Senator Cory Booker. Unfortunately, Sen. Booker did not reveal what his thoughts are on Bitcoin and the crypto industry,…

Bitcoin (BTC) lost about $100 in value in the last week, and, while reasons behind the drop in crypto prices can often be hidden and unclear — this time, that is not the case. The reason for this drop is believed to be the celebration of the Chinese New Year.

The New Year celebration was over more than a month ago for most of the modern world. However, things are a bit different in China. This is a country which is considered to be one of the oldest ones in the world, with a long and complex history. The country’s traditions are fascinating to many around the world, as so many of them are different from western culture. One of these traditions is the Chinese New Year.

The New Year celebrations in China start on January 28th, which was a week ago. The New Year itself is today, February 5th, although the celebrations and festivities are going to last until February 19th. For the people of China, and all those around the world who follow the country’s tradition, this is the time to relax, take a break, and perhaps travel and visit friends and family. But, what does it have to do with Bitcoin?

China and Bitcoin

Those who are new to the world of cryptocurrencies have likely already heard many stories about China banning Bitcoin trading and…
