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.

We always hear how Bitcoin is great for the financial industry, how it can remove the middleman and help you save money while you spend money. How it can provide fast transactions at any time to any place, even when you wish to send money to someone on the other side of the world.

While all of that is true, it is important to remember that Bitcoin’s impact does not end there. The coin has already changed countless other industries, but one of the first ones that have accepted it with open arms — and therefore one that was changed the most — is the online gaming industry.

Bitcoin’s impact on online gaming

The first thing to note here is that digital currencies have found their use in online gaming thanks to microtransactions. However, it goes far beyond simply purchasing an in-game item from another player. Bitcoin’s biggest impact, without a doubt, concerns online gambling, sports betting, and similar activities.

Bitcoin brings security and anonymity

Bitcoin casino has become one of the new most popular places for an online gambler to visit, and for numerous reasons. Bitcoin brought increased security — to the financial industry, as well as online games. This is important because security is crucial for anyone who enjoys online gambling. It…

Blockchain has caused quite a stir in recent years. In fact, there’s a school of thought that firmly believes the digital ledger technology will prove to be the 21st Century’s biggest innovation

There are a great many industries braced for the disruptive force of blockchain, and the sweeping benefits it can bring to telecommunications can’t be underestimated. 

A blockchain is a decentralised, distributed, public digital ledger that’s fundamentally used to record transactions online. Every transaction that takes place is recorded across an extensive array of computers in a way that ensures that any individual record within the chain can’t be tampered with or retroactively modified. 

Because of the virtually impregnable security associated with blockchain and the efficiency that comes with a fully decentralised ledger, there’s plenty of potential for the technology within the telco industry in particular – especially given the financial flexibility that comes with cryptocurrency transactions beyond borders. 

Let’s take a deeper look at the important role that both blockchain and its associated cryptocurrencies can play in modernising and securing the telco industry:

Unprecedented security

The arrival of blockchain is causing a stir at Deloitte. The professional services giant has contributed tens of thousands of words on blockchain within its ‘insights’ network, and there are…
