After a large increase that the Bitcoin price has seen in the last two weeks, the number one currency may have bottomed, at least according to Mike Novogratz.
Bottomed Bitcoin Price
Bitcoin price may have bottomed, according to the new claims from the popular crypto trader and investor, Mike Novogratz. Novogratz, who is the CEO and Chairman of Galaxy Investment Partners has recently expressed this opinion on Korea Blockchain Week’s show ‘Cryptotrader’.
During the interview, Novogratz stated that he is not completely sure that BTC has bottomed, but he does believe that it might be. However, he still thinks that the new bottom is a perfect place to be in order to make a strong next move. He also mentioned that the crypto adoption is increasing at a pretty decent rate.
He added that there are more and more people at crypto conferences around the world, which means that there are more of them in the crypto world. Even the institutions have started joining in by making the first moves, although they are still extremely cautious.
There are others who now share Novogratz’s opinion, some of which came to this conclusion even earlier. Barry Silbert, a member of Digital Currency Group, has said the same thing earlier this month.
What can we expect next?
Mike Novogratz has given several crypto price predictions, one of the more recent ones being about the total crypto market cap hitting $800 billion by the end of the year. He has now modified this prediction, admitting that it will likely not happen by the end of the year, but that it still might come to pass in the next 12 months. His new prediction has been built on top of the new wave of institutional investments that are reaching the crypto world.
One thing has stayed the same though, and that is Mike’s attitude towards the crypto market, which continues to remain completely positive. He does recognize that there are some changes needed for the crypto world to advance further. According to him, the next big move for the better can be achieved by implementing proper custody solution, which would be supported y reputable authority. Additionally, he believes that the regulatory clarity is another necessity that the crypto world currently lacks.
He added that these two things are what is necessary to attract institutional investors. However, he still firmly believes that it is only a matter of time before the market gets what it needs. The need for these changes is real since the current custodial solutions are not good enough to handle the task.
Instead, the institutions need more reliable solutions in order to start trusting the crypto world. However, even the proper custodial solutions would not mean all that much without reliable and trustworthy names to back them up.

What is blockchain technology?
Blockchain technology was first introduced as a supportive technology for Bitcoin. A blockchain is a simple, unchangeable and un-hackable digital ledger that holds transactions in little blocks attached to a chain. The transaction is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of systems on the blockchain, making it available for everyone on the network to see.
Each block in the chain contains various transactions which are recorded on the participant ledger every time a transaction takes place. The database is decentralised and is managed by multiple participants known as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
Although blockchain technology was birthed from Bitcoin and was widely adopted for the use of cryptocurrencies, the way it works and its security has made…

This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
