Everyone can agree on the fact that Bitcoin today is not what it used to be. Ten months ago, when 2018 was only a few days young, the leading cryptocurrency started losing its value, thus beginning a 2018 bear market. Since then, Bitcoin’s value continued to gradually drop from its all-time high of $20,000 per coin to today’s $6,600

Of course, this was not the lowest that BTC has reached this year, and at one point, it even dropped below $5,800. However, most analysts and crypto experts agree that the current price of $6,637.39 per coin can be considered Bitcoin’s bottom.

Still, a lot of investors and analysts remain optimistic, with some of them claiming that Bitcoin is about to experience a huge price surge. The most notable one among them is crypto traders Ran Neuner, who firmly believes that BTC is about to explode, according to his recent tweet.

Is Bitcoin about to go on a bull run?

Neuner’s confidence in Bitcoin has grown significantly as the date of US SEC’s Bitcoin ETF decision is approaching. This is a decision that has been postponed several times so far, and it can easily be considered an event that has been anticipated throughout 2018.

Convinced that the decision will be a positive one, Neuner draws a parallel with Bitcoin today and Bitcoin from a year ago. Back then, a bull run that has brought the entire crypto market to new heights started just before CBOE launched Bitcoin futures after it was allowed to do so by US CFTC. The CME received the same decision on December 17, which was the final push for Bitcoin to hit its historic $20,000 per coin.

Now, a similar event is expected, as Neuner believes that the SEC will say yes to Bitcoin ETF applications. Furthermore, he believes that BTC ETF is a “way bigger deal” than the futures contract, which is why BTC might reach entirely new heights.

The future depends on the US SEC’s decision

Apart from allowing Bitcoin to reach an even higher value than last year, BTC ETF also has a potential to push the coin toward an even broader recognition. According to some experts, this may even mean allow Bitcoin to officially join Wall Street.

The fact that Bitcoin ETF decision is a long-anticipated one needs no confirmation. The SEC is currently tasked with reviewing, and possibly approving, as much as nine applications, submitted by three applicants. Because endorsing BTC ETF is such a huge deal, the SEC clearly wanted to take its time with deciding what to do. This is additionally supported by the fact that the decision-making was postponed several times, with the latest deadline being November 5.

Of course, many remain a skeptic of the decision, not believing that it will be a positive one. These individuals are quick to point out that the SEC rejected numerous BTC ETF applications already, with the most notable one being submitted by the Winklevoss twins. Their requests were rejected several times, first in March 2017, and then in July 2018.

Even so, Neuner remains optimistic about it this time, and so do numerous other investors, experts, and analysts. A favorable decision would make a big difference for Bitcoin today, and it might even spark the real mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies.

2018 was not a good year for any cryptocurrency in terms of price, and especially not for Bitcoin. While there are many coins that lost a lot higher percentage of their price, no other coin lost as much in terms of value alone. After the market crashed in January 2018, Bitcoin lost over 80% of its value over time. While some coins lost more, over 90%, Bitcoin’s loss resulted in nearly $17,000 per coin.

However, while the last year was the worst in crypto history, a lot of investors, analysts, experts, and even crypto enthusiasts still held on to hope that bright times will return. This belief inspired numerous predictions, and while some were unrealistic, there is a number of others that were still in the realm of possibility.

Well, 2019 arrived, and while the start of the year still felt a tight bearish grip over the market, things appear to be taking a positive turn. So much so, in fact, that some of the positive predictions are starting to come true. Here are a few of them which can be observed right now.

Bitcoin’s price will grow again

After the market crashed in early 2018, many were still confident in the Bitcoin’s price, not even bothering to question whether or not the coin’s drop will stop at a decent price and start growing once more. However,…

When Might Bitcoin See Another Rally?

It appears that the time has come and that the crypto market is finally ready to shake off the bears, and start a new rally that will restore the coins’ prices. Bitcoin investors are particularly impatient right now, as the coin shows clear signs that it wants to grow, although one big resistance stands in its way.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is struggling with overcoming the price of $4,000, constantly approaching it only to be brought back down. It did manage to break the resistance a few times now, although a correction followed nearly immediately, preventing the coin from breaking free, and confusing the investors who are wondering whether to buy, sell, or HODL.

Judging from its performance in the past, Bitcoin has the potential to reach at least $20,000, possibly more. Every time the coin hit the all-time high in the past, it was brought back down, only to rise even further during the next rally. If this happens again, its price may exceed $20,000, maybe even during 2019.

However, if we take a look at what is currently going on, some might say that this is unlikely, and for several reasons. One of them is the fact that the interest in Bitcoin has dropped, mainly because trading it is not making as much money as it used to. In addition, the investors’ attention…

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?
