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 the past two months. With the prices going up due to a recovery, many tend to forget that corrections are still something that never fails to arrive, and the fear of missing out tends to get to even the most cautious of investors.

Of course, the crash that is likely to follow will not be nearly as devastating as the one in 2018, but it is likely to act as its mini-version. The behavior is pretty much the same — BTC sees sudden growth, the volume starts to hesitate, buyers start losing interest, and sellers take over, use the opportunity to make a profit, causing the price to crash along the way.

Even Bitcoin dominance is ready to see a correction, which will likely spark an even larger sellout. Many use the index to try and predict the price’s behavior, and as soon as the coin’s dominance starts to drop, they tend to sell it for LTC and ADA. Then, they buy BTC again when the price is low, and the cycle continues.

The index is currently very close to the overbought territory, and it has topped off at 58%. As a result, it is likely to fall soon, with its first support at 50%. If this support does not stop it, it is more than likely that an ever bigger crash is going to follow. However, as mentioned, this will be a good thing for altcoins. Many of them saw quite a surge the last time BTC index hit this level, which was earlier this year, in March.

ADA’s price against BTC skyrocketed from 0.00001 BTC to 0,00001944 BTC, all within a single month. LTC saw a considerable growth itself, growing from 0.0012 BTC to 0.00189 BTC. The same is true for a lot of other coins.

The rise of altcoins is coming

When Bitcoin started growing seriously back in April, a lot of altcoins suffered as traders and investors went for the BTC. This kept driving the coin’s price to major heights, and this is why we are now about to see a correction. However, with BTC expected to come, many are already buying altcoins they previously dumped.

As a result, the demand and price will surge, and BTC will drop due to an oversale. BTC is currently as high as it is going to get for the moment, while the altcoins are at their lowest, so such a strategy does make sense. Later, when the altcoins reach their respective peaks, and BTC hits bottom, the situation will get reversed once more, and BTC will see demand and hype.

In the end, the best anyone can do now is sell BTC, and buy altcoins, and then return later, once the largest crypto hits bottom. The price will crash whether you participate in a selloff or not. You can at least make a profit instead of losing your investments.

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.

3 Altcoins That Are Outperforming Bitcoin and Will Likely Face Consequences

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…

For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…
