The crypto-markets are looking a bit scary at the moment of writing this. Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading at $7,000 and down 6.36% in the last 24 hours. BTC was unable to hold levels above $7,500 and dropped like the proverbial rock in a matter of hours.

But do not worry. This had been predicted by a veteran digital analyst, Will Woo, via Twitter when he stated the following:

“Interesting to see most think BTC will moon. I think BTC will flash dump, then moon afterwards, just like with Gold in WFC 2008. Flight to safety: everything else sells off to USD, then used to unwind leveraged positions, then afterwards havens like Gold and BTC have a bull run.”

He also added that the Bitcoin Bull Run will depend on Institutional Investors getting into crypto investing:

“Probably also contingent on how many institutional players are in the BTC market over that period. Normal retail HODLers won’t tend to have large leveraged positions to unwind from, apart from maybe mortgages.”

So what does this all mean? 

As stated by Willy Woo, traders are selling off their BTC to stock up on USD that will be used to place new buy orders at lower levels of BTC. Traders are savvy and they know that the Bitcoin Bull run is coming especially with the recent news of the owner of the New York Stock Exchange (Intercontinental Exchange: ICE), launching a new company that will assist in making Bitcoin and all other digital assets, mainstream investments. ICE has partnered with Microsoft, BCG, and Starbucks to create a new company that will be known as Bakkt.

Bakkt is expected to include federally regulated markets and warehousing along with merchant and consumer applications. Its first use cases will be for trading and conversion of Bitcoin versus fiat currencies, as Bitcoin is today the most liquid digital currency. Bakkt will be fully operational by November.

This means that ICE, Microsoft, Starbucks, and BCG have been secretly working on this project for the last year or so. They know the time is ripe for 100% Bitcoin investing on Wallstreet. Their provision of a regulated exchange and asset warehousing means that the CBOE Bitcoin ETF stands a chance at being accepted by the SEC. Remember the Winklevoss ETF was rejected due to the lack of the two factors: a regulated exchange and asset storage.

In a nutshell, it is only a matter of time before Bitcoin starts running with the bulls. The question is, have you panicked and sold out? Or are you seeing the bigger picture of the events that are unfolding in front of our eyes?

The new announcement by the US SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) states that the decision regarding the potential approval of several applications for a Bitcoin ETF (exchange-traded funds) is once again postponed. This time, the SEC declared that the decision will be made by February 27th, 2019.

The application requesting that VanExk SolidX BTC fund get s listed on Cboe BZx Exchange that was published on July 2nd needs to be given order by the commission within 180 days. Originally, the deadline for doing so was December 29th. However, the SEC decided to extend the period for another 60 days, effectively moving it to February 27th.

The SEC stated that designating a longer period for making a decision was found appropriate, as more time is needed in order to properly consider the rule change.

Cryptocurrencies need a sufficient monitoring mechanism, claims SEC chairman

Recent reports claim that the SEC received over 1,600 comments after requesting the public opinion regarding the ETF applications issue. In the past, the SEC rejected many such applications, some of which were even submitted by SolidX itself. In addition, they also rejected the applications submitted by Gemini, the exchange owned by Winklevoss twins. Brothers were attempting to gain ETF approval ever since 2013, although to no avail.

Other applications were also submitted by Direxion, ProShares, as well as GraniteShares. The SEC rejected them…

There are only a few weeks of 2018 left, and considering how bearish and crypto-unfriendly this year was, a lot of investors will likely be pleased to see it gone. Many believe that 2019 will be the year that will correct BTC prices and bring forth the period of great recovery.

But what does that mean for digital currencies? Which ones are a good investment right now? This is something that we will, hopefully, be able to answer right now. Here are the top 3 coins that everyone should keep an eye on in 2019.

1. Bitcoin (BTC)

Of course, we have to start with Bitcoin, the first and largest cryptocurrency. Bitcoin has lost a lot in 2018, and its losses are unparalleled by any other coin. In fact, in terms of market cap, Bitcoin has lost as much as the rest of the crypto market put together.

Many believe that its rapid growth, which started in late 2017 and has brought it to its all-time high, is responsible. That the bearish 2018 was only a one large price correction of the last year’s price surge. Even if this is true, price corrections, luckily, all end sooner or later, and when this one comes to a close, Bitcoin will likely be ready for a big comeback.

2019 is expected to bring a lot that will serve BTC’s…

In this bear market, everybody’s asking the same questions. Why is Bitcoin falling? When will the market turn around? Is this the end of the crypto boom?

However, before we can answer questions like these, we need to step back and do an honest appraisal of where our industry stands and what is really holding it back. Despite its growing popularity, cryptocurrency still struggles to gain mainstream appeal. While crypto has managed to distance itself from the early days, when it was used to buy illegal goods online, the currency still conjures up negative feelings for a lot of people unfamiliar with the technology — and all too often, for good reasons.

Cryptocurrency is still relatively new, which means that many casual users are still exploring different ways to use crypto in their day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, this lack of knowledge leaves a lot of users vulnerable to scammers seeking to take advantage of their ignorance and inexperience.

We’ve contacted various types of people within the crypto community, surveying newbies, traders, investors, and professionals, asking what the biggest problems in crypto are. We found there to be three major problems holding the industry back:

Scammers

Failed projects

Immature technology
