There is no doubt that the crypto industry has been undergoing ups and downs, with many crypto analysts voicing their sentiments criticizing blockchain-based assets such as Ethereum, Bitcoin, and altcoins as mere fads that are going to disappear and fail in a month’s time.

Although critical onlookers continue to bombard the crypto space with misbelief and doubts on a near-daily basis doom predictions, many crypto pundits within the crypto industry remain unfazed regardless of the negative predictions.

According to a famous New York-based financial news website, TheStreet, that spoke to many influential figures within the budding crypto industry; an immense hope is still alive for this emerging sector.

TheStreet Interview with Hermann Finnbjornsson

The financial news website met and spoke with the CEO and founder of Svandis, a highly proclaimed crypto asset analytics company, Mr. Herman Finnbjornsson. According to information derived from the interview which expressed positive belief in the Bitcoin, Herman stated:

“There is less than a 1 percent chance in my mind that Bitcoin will not succeed. I think that there is a lot of reasons why to be bullish on Bitcoin. Banks are getting into Bitcoin.”

The chief executive of Svandis comments brings up an interesting point of view that is worth examining about traditional and fiat currency financial institutions and banks, as many crypto pundits who have decided to have an optimistic outlook, expect the capital allocation and investment from such institutions are going to drive cryptocurrency’s next bull run.

It is anticipated that the next bull run in the crypto space has the potential to propel the value price of blockchain-based digital assets to higher heights the world has never witnessed.

But this point of view is more than mere wishful thinking, many institutions and companies have already begun either showing interest or are already making significant forays into the cryptocurrency space.

Russell Korus Sentiments on Cryptocurrency

According to a similar interview with the financial news website, EZ Exchange’s chief executive officer, Russell Korus, also added his voice in regards to Bitcoin, expressing that there were reasons to believe that Bitcoin is indeed a game changer in the cryptocurrency field. Korus is noted saying:

“There are several reasons why this new asset class has captured people’s imagination since its inception in 2009 – Bitcoin displays some characteristics that positions it to become a very powerful and alluring concept. It allows for direct, p2p transfer of value in completely trustless transactions. It is fully decentralized, autonomous, writes all of its records to a public ledger, and its record-keeping is completely immutable.”

Bitcoin Analysis and Prediction

As at on last Friday morning, many traders and investors in the crypto space woke up to pleasing news of the majority of digital assets had recorded overnight gains, a move that was met with widespread acceptance and optimism of a nearing bull run in the market.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is exchanging at $7,364, marking a 0.96% price increase. From where we stand, Bitcoin is now on the right track after recording its third winning week simultaneously, alluding to the fact that cryptocurrencies led by Bitcoin are not going to fall in price and disappear. Not anytime soon.

For quite some now, Bitcoin has been hanging around the range-bound of $6,800 and $7,100, attributed to the declines of volatility in the crypto space in general.

Ethereum Price Analysis and Prediction

At the time of writing, Ethereum exchanges at around $284, recording -1.05% virtual price change in the last 24-hours. Following its intra-week high of $298, the digital asset has failed to sustain a consistent upward trend, remaining in the range bound of $290.

Most of the coins in the market are recording modest gains hence it is going to be wrong to make long-term conclusions influenced by the current market trends.

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…

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…
