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

Published

Bitcoin

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 can’t trade crypto these days. SEC declared Bitcoin and Ethereum to be commodities instead of securities (with a decision on XRP still pending), Thailand legalized crypto trade, the first all-crypto bank is on the works at Malta, Litecoin bought a bank in Germany, and we could keep going. The point is the industry is growing even as the market shrinks.

And about reasons to be hopeful. We believe hopeful is not the right word. We are sure that the trend will reverse. We’re not alone on that. Many experts think that way too.

Tom Lee is a well-known crypto markets analyst at Wall Street. He predicted, earlier this year, that BTC would reach 25k before the year’s end. After the recent developments, he corrected his forecast to 15k, but he didn’t back down in that the market will start growing again.

Another factor to take into account is that institutional interest in digital assets has been growing. Wall Street’s traditional financial institutions have started to design products based on alt-coins to offer their “normal” customers. ICE (the New York Stock Exchange’s parent company) partnered up with Microsoft and Starbuck to create a new crypto exchange that is expected to come only very soon.

In short: Bitcoin and the market may be down, but the industry is growing steadily, and the bulls will come to visit sooner or later. When, I hear you ask? We have no idea, but it’s unavoidable. The market will have to hit rock bottom before it bounces back and we can’t tell you when that will happen either. But it will.

In the meantime, we all get the chance to buy Bitcoin (and altcoins such as TRX, XRP, and ADA to name a few, the ones who have massive potential) cheap.

Bitcoin Casinos

Ever since the creation of the first sport games, people started enjoying the betting process. As the sports grew more popular around the world, so did the betting community and other than the physical betting shops, online sportsbooks have also started to emerge. Around 5 years ago the crypto gambling industry also made strides to join the fun and Bitcoin Casino started pouring its resources into providing proper sportsbook experience for their communities of players. For several years the things were steady and the concept of Bitcoin Betting was growing exponentially. Although recent events have significantly halted the progress of sports and betting, the new alternative started gaining traction in the gambling world, and that alternative was the Esport Betting. 

How did Esport Betting become so popular?

The beginning of 2020 was unprecedented for the history of mankind and all the global business, including the gambling industry. In the month of March, most of the sports stopped because of the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic and betting services witnessed huge losses. That’s where the Bitcoin Casino industry found a viable alternative in the virtual sport segment. Because of that, Esport Betting has become increasingly more popular and the biggest BTC Casinos started providing a huge selection of tournaments in their sportsbook section.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has already brought our world some of the most incredible innovation we have seen, but the best is yet to come. 

Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, blockchain. While often regarded as mere industry buzzwords are actually the fundamentals of something far greater. Things like borderless currency, decentralized business, open-source software, collaborative technology, shared computing. These are just a scant few of the underlying principles that are taking our technology and daily lives into the future. Should these sciences be embraced, it will be a bright future indeed. 

It has become ever more transparent that humans today are living in fear. If nothing else, 2020 has brought the tidal wave of anxiety and distrust that many live in the shadow of, to a terrifying apex. We are all just waiting for the crash. While some flock to literature, or social media, or their favored news outlet, others flock to exchanges. Using platforms like the newbie friendly Bitvavo to place their bets on the future, on what could be, and what already largely is. Bitcoin and the technology that underpins its innermost workings are a preparation for a better tomorrow. An investment in a future that is already changing our lives today. 

The Point Behind the Hype 

In 2008, when Satoshi Nakamoto wrote the bitcoin white paper, few paid attention. It took years to…

AAX Crypto Exchange Announces Massive Growth Numbers in August

AAX Exchange

As the crypto market continues to surge, new traders continue to enter the market on a daily basis.  One of the first questions that new traders have is where should they trade crypto.  While there are countless options for buying and selling digital assets, traders need to exercise extreme caution and perform due diligence to avoid scam exchanges as well as places that have limited or no volume.  While the main platforms such as Coinbase, Binance, and Bittrex will always have significant volume, their fees are known to be on the expensive side.  AAX, a next-generation cryptocurrency exchange with the lowest futures fees in the world, represents a compelling alternative that traders should consider.

Growth Announcement

A few of the most important issues to consider when deciding whether to use an exchange are the number of users and the volume.  On August 7, AAX announced that in a little over two weeks, the exchange doubled its user base bringing the grand total of registered users to over 200,000.  At this rate, AAX may surpass the million mark later this year which would be an incredible achievement and is most certainly due to a variety of factors including extremely low fees and revolutionary technology.

Institutional-Grade Exchange

When AAX decided to build its platform, it set out to meet the demands of both institutional and retail investors.  In order to achieve that goal, the exchange operates at the highest possible…
