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?

What Caused So Many Investors to Turn to Bitcoin in 2017?

Bitcoin (BTC) has been growing increasingly popular in recent years, especially in the last two. About five weeks ago, the coin celebrated its 10th birthday, however, while it has been an entire decade of its existence, it was basically unknown to anyone who is not a particularly interested in new technologies. This all changed in 2017, when Bitcoin’s price skyrocketed from $1,000 to $20,000, making it the biggest trend of the year.

Suddenly, the entire world heard of its name, and cryptocurrencies finally got their place under the spotlight. Investors continued to arrive at the crypto space, cash was flowing, hundreds of new coins emerged, and more optimistic analysts predicted Bitcoin’s price going even higher, potentially reaching $50,000, $100,000, and more.

However, as we know today, it was not to last. 2018 was barely a few weeks in when the market crashed, the prices started dropping, and investors started selling. The profits were quickly lost for anyone who did not cash out in time, and these days, Bitcoin’s price sits at around $3,812. The crash reminded everyone that cryptocurrencies remain as volatile as ever and that they still pose a risk for investors. But, people already knew this, so why did they invest in the first place?

The cryptocurrency space is growing larger and has more impact on our everyday life with each new year. Despite the low prices and market crashes in 2018, the situation on the market seems to be taking a turn for the better, especially after a new surge that started on February 8th. However, as we progress through another year of cryptos’ fight for survival and adoption, the 2020 US Presidential Elections continue to approach.

With that in mind, it might be worth knowing what the current major Presidential candidates think about the crypto space, and Bitcoin (BTC), in particular. Of course, no one can know who will get elected and whether the next US President will be a crypto investor or someone who will have no problems with imposing even stricter regulations that might limit the market’s potentials.

Even so, we can at least see what they had to say about the crypto industry, and form some sort of expectations regarding the future based on that. It should be noted that the list does not include every candidate, only the major ones, and those who decided to take a notable stance towards Bitcoin.

1) Cory Booker

Let’s start with the Democratic candidates, the first of which on our list is Senator Cory Booker. Unfortunately, Sen. Booker did not reveal what his thoughts are on Bitcoin and the crypto industry,…

Bitcoin (BTC) lost about $100 in value in the last week, and, while reasons behind the drop in crypto prices can often be hidden and unclear — this time, that is not the case. The reason for this drop is believed to be the celebration of the Chinese New Year.

The New Year celebration was over more than a month ago for most of the modern world. However, things are a bit different in China. This is a country which is considered to be one of the oldest ones in the world, with a long and complex history. The country’s traditions are fascinating to many around the world, as so many of them are different from western culture. One of these traditions is the Chinese New Year.

The New Year celebrations in China start on January 28th, which was a week ago. The New Year itself is today, February 5th, although the celebrations and festivities are going to last until February 19th. For the people of China, and all those around the world who follow the country’s tradition, this is the time to relax, take a break, and perhaps travel and visit friends and family. But, what does it have to do with Bitcoin?

China and Bitcoin

Those who are new to the world of cryptocurrencies have likely already heard many stories about China banning Bitcoin trading and…
