Cardano (ADA), NEO, EOS Bull Run To Start August

After a small price increase at the end of July, many crypto price analysts believe that August will be the month when the real bull run will come.

Is a new bull run about to start?

The current crypto market cap is at around $300 billion, which many price experts decided to view as a sign that a new bull run is about to take place. The current situation is similar to that of the early June when the market cap was last seen to hit $300 billion in total. Back then, the market was still extremely bearish.

Now, the situation seems to be changing for the better, and in the last few days, the prices of many cryptocurrencies were on a rise. Since then, the prices once again dropped, but many see this as a small setback and are preparing for the real bull run.

The cash flow increased significantly last week when Bitcoin hit $8200, and many cryptos, including Cardano (ADA), NEO, EOS, and others, have seen several percents large increases. While not that many altcoins have seen big increases, Bitcoin was the one that led the price shift. Even so, the majority of the crypto supporters have seen this as a positive thing, and an indication that the market is ready for a period of recovery.

Despite the fact that there were some significant changes in the prices of several coins, there were also those who experienced some losses. Because of that, there are also some analysts with a pessimistic view of things, claiming that this situation might lead to the disappearance of several altcoins.

Right now, Bitcoin continues to dominate the market with around 46% of the money. However, this percentage fades in comparison with Bitcoin as it was back in 2013 when it dominated with 75-90% of the money in the market. Still, this is a significant rise from the situation as it was earlier this year when BTC’s market dominance went down to barely 30%.

What will happen to altcoins?

If we take a look at the cryptocurrencies’ short history, it is clear that the largest price shifts usually come at the beginning of the year, as well as at its end. For example, the last December has seen Bitcoin hit $20,000, while Cardano exceeded $1.20, and NEO managed to hit $162 per coin.

Then, as soon as January came, the majority of cryptos dropped significantly. In July 2017, however, Bitcoin lost much of its dominance, dropping to only 40%. At the same time, however, a lot of altcoins rose, some even threatening to overtake if the situation were to continue. Now, it would seem that the history is repeating itself for Bitcoin, with its dominance being at 47%. However, the same cannot be said for altcoins, which are dropping even more, instead of rising like they did last year.

This is the situation that has led to a lot of conflicting opinions on what will come next. Some believe that the bull run is about to start within days, while others claim that this might be the end of all altcoins. If true, then this latest price increase was the false sign of hope for many investors, and altcoins might truly be at their end. However, the situation might not be so grim, and a lot of altcoins might survive, even if the majority were to fall.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
