In a recent tweet a few days ago, Kim Dotcom had advised all of us to start stocking up on gold and cryptocurrency (eg Bitcoin (BTC)) – for the USD was at the cusp of a serious financial crisis. His advice was interpreted as meaning that we should look for alternative means of storing value as the future of the global fiat currencies looks uncertain. His exact words were as follows:

“Trust me. Buy crypto and gold. Your USD will become worthless. With US economic collapse all old money currencies will crash. Times will get tough. But you’ll be fine if you hedge some of your assets in preparation for the crash. The big crash is coming 100%.”

Turkish Financial Crisis

His words can be applied to the current situation in Turkey as its currency – the Lira – continues to be volatile due to increased political tensions in the country. On August 9th, the Lira dropped in value by a whopping 18% as many economists continued to theorize how its currency would get back to being stable and at a level seen before President Erdogan consolidated his power over the past months by amending the constitution. The US has imposed sanctions on the country thus adding to the financial uncertainty.

Referencing the words of Kim Dotcom, and to the Turkish Lira, it is only natural that the Citizens of Turkey have started researching on alternative ways of hedging against a volatile Lira. It is with such a theory that Twitter user @CobraBitcoin tweeted the following about Bitcoin.Org:

“There’s been a MASSIVE 42% increase in visitors to from Istanbul as the Turkish Lira plummets. This is how Bitcoin takes over the world, not through ETF’s and “HODL”, but through replacing fiat currencies as they fall apart!”

Further investigating the claim, we find that in early August, the traffic to Bitcoin.org from Turkey stood at 11,485 visitors per day. On 14th of August, that number stood at 45,044 indicating a 292% increment in traffic from Turkey to Bitcoin.org.

Bitcoin As An Alternative to Fiat

With the increased interest in Bitcoin from the citizens of Turkey, we can see that BTC is an alternative store of value during periods of political turmoil that could lead to the crash of fiat currencies. It is, therefore, safe to also conclude that Bitcoin (BTC) is the Digital Gold of the 21st Century.

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…
