Bitcoin (BTC) appears to be in yet another free fall, with no indication when or where it will stop, and investors are wondering if the coin is going to breach its recently identified bottom once again.

Bitcoin behavior in 2018

Bitcoin has had an eventful 2018, with countless ups and downs in the last 12 months. As many are aware of at this point, the BTC started this year with an all-time high, when it reached $20,000 per coin. The situation quickly took a turn for the worse, and in mid-January 2018, the market crashed. As a result, BTC started losing value, and over the following months, it lost over 30%.

The free fall stopped at around $6,300, which is where the coin managed to stabilize for several months. At this point, it often had small surges which provided investors with hope that the coin has reached a bottom. Many believed that it will stop dropping and that it can only go up from this price. Then, in November 2018, the market crashed yet again, and BTC breached its bottom.

It continued its downward spiral until it reached $3,200, which experts identified as the new bottom. Once again, investors were hoping that this will be the end of Bitcoin’s value loss and that the market will switch from bearish to bullish. That also seemingly happened on December 17th, and for an entire week, Bitcoin was growing once again, until the surge increased its value by around $1,000.

As many predicted, this was still not the end, and the coin is now rapidly losing value for the third time this year. At the time of writing, the BTC value is at $3,661.49, after experiencing a drop of 3.5% in the last 24 hours.

What will happen next?

It is unclear where the coin will go from here, and while investors are hoping that its bottom might still lie at around $3,200, some analysts are leaving open the possibility that this bottom is not the real one, and that BTC will soon breach it.

It appears that Bitcoin’s downward spiral once again affected the entire market, and almost all cryptos within the top 100 are currently trading in the red. The situation is pretty much the same when it comes to the ten largest coins by market cap, with only Tether (USDT) experiencing slight gains. Bitcoin’s market cap ($63.88 billion) currently still dominates the crypto space, with the coin owning more than half of the total market cap ($120.5 billion).

Since the second market crash occurred, the crypto community searched for Bitcoin price predictions in their attempts to understand what is going on, and what might be the best course of action. Some analysts proposed that Bitcoin’s value has yet to reach its real bottom and that it is likely that the coin will drop below $3,000.

In the meanwhile, it appears that bears have returned to the market for one last time in 2018. With only a few days of this year remaining, this will likely be the last drop that Bitcoin is experiencing. The community is expecting that 2019 will be the year when the situation will turn around, with crypto thriving in prosperous conditions once again. While this is not impossible, many experts believe it is unlikely that it will occur on January 1st.

It will take a lot of change for the market to break free from the bearish grip, and large projects such as the Bakkt exchange launch might start this process. Of course, no one can predict the future, and analysts can only rely on behavioral patterns through which Bitcoin has gone through so far. Even so, there is a lot of potential in 2019, and it is entirely possible that the new era of crypto prosperity might start at some point.

Bitcoin is soaring high in the cryptomarket once again, and experts are expecting a return of the bullish trend of 2017. The current Bitcoin price is $7,615 as of 23 May 6:56 AM UTC. This significant jump comes just six months after the Bitcoin price plummeted to a low of $3150 in December 2018. Since then, Bitcoin has experienced steady growth and gain in the market. However, in the last 30 days, the Bitcoin price peaked to $8,320.82, its highest price ever. This phenomenal jump occurred in a span of only 10 days breaking the Bitcoin record so far of significant gains made in short time frames. This positive growth has led to experts forecasting the Bitcoin price to hit the $20,000 mark by the end of this year.

Since entering the market almost 11 years ago, Bitcoin is still at the top of the global cryptocurrencies list. The current circulating supply of Bitcoin is at unbelievable 17,708,875 BTC. The market trend of the Bitcoin price has remained positive even when the currency did not maintain an uptrend. Cryptocurrency researchers believe that Bitcoin has the potential to grow up to a high of USD 50,000 within the next two years.

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…

For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…
