I write this as Wednesday; August 15th just comes in. If you haven’t heard about it yet (which we highly doubt) the whole crypto market had an epic crash that saw almost every coin lose a lot of value.

Crypto skeptics and haters had a field day posting ‘I told you‘ in every forum they could, and the mainstream press had its fun as well. After the debacle, Rippe’s XRP, Tron (TRX) and Cardano’s ADA are recovering some ground already, but some of the coins are still trading in the red.

So what shall we say to the prophets of doom that have been trying to spread hysteria and FUD around ever since Bitcoin went live nine years ago? Simple: this is a blessing in disguise.

The cryptocurrency market has been under the influence of a bearish trend since Bitcoin peaked last December 17th. It’s been either slow or going down all year even though so many great blockchain projects have made insane amounts of progress.

Bearish runs are not a bug of any market; they’re a feature. And they’re not tragic (more on that later), they’re merely a stage in a cyclical process that always has alternated between bears and bulls, and that will keep oscillating between both processes as long as free markets exist.

The current crypto bearish run has been long, but before it can finish, it has to bottom out. That’s just the nature of the beast so, in that sense, a drop as till yesterday’s is a sign that we’re getting ever so close to the inflection point in which the new bullish run for cryptos like Bitcoin, Ripple’s XRP, Cardano, and others will start.

What causes a bearish trend

The main reason behind any bullish run in any market is irrationality. It happens when ignorant or impulsive speculators take over the trade from real experts. They go by perception and fear thus creating speculative pressure. Competent investors, on the other hand, can detect value and avoid speculation instead of reacting to irrelevant news or appearances. That’s what’s happening right now.

Is it bad? No, it isn’t. However, It’s not good either. It’s just the way things go. Sooner or later a bullish run will arrive and, after that one, another bearish trend might follow.

How worried should you be as a crypto aficionado or as a HODLer of Ripple’s XRP, Cardano, Bitcoin or any other crypto that has a real vision behind it? Not that much. At this point in the time, the market is suffering as a whole, every asset has been going steadily down for months, and there’s just no point in wasting energy in worrying about it. 

If you are holding Bitcoin, or Litecoin, or whatever digital coin of your choice, it’s been losing value since last December. But every other single currency has gone down as well. If you were holding any given asset that is losing value at a time when most other coins are rising in price, that is the time to worry, and that’s not what’s going on lately.

The thing that matters now is that prices are low and that affords us all the chance to buy at low prices and then sit back and wait until the next bullish run comes around while we plan on buying a yacht.

The current one, in particular, could be the opportunity of a lifetime as many really useful and exciting blockchain projects such as Cardano, TronStellar Lumens are very young yet, they cost cents per token, and will never be so cheap again. Even Ripple which has been around for years is fluctuating in the forty cents mark.

One last thing: it’s a very well established fact in market analysis that new bullish runs arriving after a bearish run take the market to levels higher than those of the previous bullish run. Good news is on the way. It’s a time for rationality, patience, intelligence, discipline and, above all, to buy cheap.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

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.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

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…

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?

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,…
