An epic Bitcoin price rise will dwarf all previous BTC bull runs in May 2020

Last week was just murder for Bitcoin. It dropped significantly twice, and it had already gone down for more than 11 months. So there are two questions in the mind of every crypto enthusiast in the world. First, when is Bitcoin going to start recovering value again? Second, when is Bitcoin going to reach an all-time high again?

We think it unavoidable for Bitcoin to recover, and we also think it inevitable for it to reach unprecedented heights at some point in the future. When? We don’t know to be honest.

But there are cryptocurrency observers who think they do have an answer, even a date. In this article, we will explain their arguments. We can’t assure you they’re right, but information is power, so this is probably an idea everybody should know about.

We’ll start with the answer; then we give you the explanation. The next Bitcoin hyperjump will start on May 2020. It will prompt a huge and prolonged bull run that will culminate on December 2021. By then Bitcoin will be around 100k in price. Fascinating, isn’t it?

Before we give you the rationale behind that answer, we’ll give you the context you’ll need to understand it.

As you surely know, Bitcoin needs to be mined. This means that a bunch of enthusiasts all over the world (well, mainly in China) use a lot of computer power to solve a mathematical problem known as an “SHA-256 collision”.

Since it has no analytical solution, it must be calculated randomly, using a computer, and that takes time. This creates a “chain” of “blocks” (hence, “blockchain”), one at a time, and with every new block, a number of new Bitcoins are created. How many? Good question!

In the beginning, every new block created 50 new bitcoins. But Satoshi (the mythical digital superhero who created Bitcoin) wanted to avoid inflation in the Bitcoin environment, so he designed the protocol to make the total amount of tokens limited and progressively harder to mine.

One of the ways in which this goal is achieved is that, every so often, the number of coins created by every new block is halved. So, for instance, after November 28th, 2012, only 25 coins are produced per new block, and after July 9th, 12.5 coins. Next halving event is on May 2020 (you see where we’re going?).

Historically, each time that a halving has been implemented, the Bitcoin prices go through the roof. It happened in 2012, then in 2016. So, many observers are utterly convinced that the next halving event, in May 2020, will also bring about an epic rise in price that will dwarf any of the previous Bitcoin bull runs.

That’s it. That’s what some aficionados are expecting, and that’s the reason supporting their expectations.

But how reliable is this? It’s really hard to say. While it could indeed be a legitimate phenomenon, the fact is that Bitcoin is too young, there have been only two halvings, and there’s not enough data (or data analysis) to guarantee that every halving is going to jumpstart Bitcoin again.

So while this is an idea every serious observer in the crypto verse should know, it should be taken with a grain of salt because, so far, it’s impossible to say it’s not merely anecdotal. Lots of things happen around Bitcoin besides halvings. Now you know, though. We hope it will become useful information to you.

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…

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…
