End of last month, Satis Group, an ICO advisory service, and research firm, released a report on the short, medium, and long-term analysis on the price standing and predictions for large-capitalization cryptocurrencies with Bitcoin and Ripple showing impressive results despite Bitcoin’s current unpleasing prices.

The initial coin offering firm published the report with the intentions to examine the current price value of major virtual currencies in the crypto market that include their actual price valuations underlying coin prices.

The published report could not have come at any better time as it contains some market prediction that concern the potential growth of the crypto market in future giving hope to prospective and current investors.

Although at present, according to information provided by CoinMarketCap, the number one ranked cryptocurrency, Bitcoin is exchanging at 6,939 US dollars per coin, marking a price decrease of less 5.77% over the period of last 24-hours. Satis Group analyst predict the price of Bitcoin is going to shoot up to about 96,000 US dollars over the next five years.

It is evident that these new price prediction from Satis Group are not so encouraging in comparison to estimates made by other market researchers and observers who place Bitcoin price valuation in the next five years to be anywhere around the 1 million US dollar level.

Currently, as the market discusses and looks into the findings made by the ICO advisory service and research firm, people are not responding to them positively as Tom Lee, another revered crypto pundit places the price of Bitcoin to be around 91,000 US dollars by Mid-2020.

Regardless of the bashing from investors and traders, the finding by Satis Group still sounds reasonably positive considering the current circumstances that have been bedeviling the crypto market.

Satis Bitcoin’s Bullish Prediction

For some time now, it seems the crypto market has been plagued by stagnation and little positive price movement ever since this year started. But Satis Group has come with hopeful price prediction claiming Bitcoin is going to be one of the virtual currencies that are going to benefit, and realize its potential that the crypto is going to catapult its price to skyrocket to the levels of 96,000 US dollars per coin in the next five years.

Still, on the recent report findings, Satis Group predicts the monetary value of the entire cryptocurrency market would be at $3.6 trillion US dollars by 2023. If this is anything to go by, such a market valuation rise regarding market capitalization would be massive considering the current market cap of the entire crypto market currently standing below 200 billion US dollars.

Satis Group Prediction on Ripple (XRP)

Since the beginning of the year, Ripple (XRP) has managed to maintain a more or less constant price trajectory, and as a result, the digital coin has not been able to fetch attractive price valuation of traction.

At present, Ripple (XRP) is exchanging at around 0.293 US dollars, and when you have a closer look at the digital coin’s price performance since the beginning of the year, you will notice that Ripple’s XRP has been losing its value over time. The cryptocurrency has dropped over 60 percent of its value from the peak.

According to the informatics report by Satis Group, Ripple (XRP) has no utility value attached to it making it a misleadingly marketed digital asset. Many crypto enthusiasts view these sentiments negatively as the digital coin has been gaining mainstream adoption in the financial and banking sector continuously.

Everyone who is familiar with Ripple (XRP) can attest that the digital currency is making highlights with constant news of being adopted by financial companies and banks. It’s just a fact nobody can take away from Ripple.

According to the research, Ripple investors should be on the lookout for a price dip to the zones of 0.01 US dollars away from its current 0.293 US dollar price tag.

Stepping off the rollercoaster: Why I’ve fallen out of love with Bitcoin

The very word Bitcoin has almost become synonymous with that of cryptocurrency. It’s basically just a medium of conducting digital transactions – it’s a virtual currency and one of many. So how has it taken on a definition of its own and asserted itself as a leader in the digital financial ecosystem?

Bitcoin has been crowned king of altcoins, probably because it was one of the earliest and most successful of its kind. The trendsetter has ushered in a wave of cryptocurrencies built on decentralised P2P networks and has inspired a growing number of followers and spinoffs. But is Bitcoin struggling to keep up with the newcomers who have made considerable developments to the stability, security, and usability of the crypto world?

The supporting case for Bitcoin has been a clear one. Its pioneering infrastructure has situated it in a position of dominance in the altcoin realm. Bitcoin has a proven usage case as a store of value. Having existed over 8 years without failure, it has a large lead over most altcoins and has withstood the test of time as younger counterparts join the market. However, it seems to be on a downward slope, or at the very least, not progressing at the speed of the market.

In May this…

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
