Is Bitcoin BTC Price Finally Making a Comeback?



Bitcoin BTC price

New data has shown a sudden and unexpected shift within the crypto market, where the Bitcoin BTC price stopped its free fall and is currently rising once more. The number one currency is experiencing an 8.29% growth at the time of writing, with its current price nearing $4,400.

The new change has confirmed once again just how chaotic Bitcoin can be, and investors are still trying to find a source of this twist. Despite the fact that Bitcoin has had numerous ups and downs in 2018 alone, that it has gone through two serious market crashes, and almost an entire bearish year, it still remains the number one digital currency.

Bitcoin is continuing to dominate the market in terms of value, market cap, rank, age, and several other aspects. In the meantime, investors are asking another important question, which is — how far up can Bitcoin go?

Potential heights of Bitcoin

As stated previously, Bitcoin is the most unstable cryptocurrency around. It started this year with a price of $20,000 and nearing its end, it dropped to $3,700. While many have predicted that BTC will reach its old value of $20,000 or more by the end of the year, this seemed unlikely until today.

Investors and experts alike were now reminded that not a lot is certain when it comes to Bitcoin and that its price can be in free fall, and then shift to an unpredicted surge, all in one day. Considering that the year is nearing its end, and cryptocurrencies’ tendency to rise without any apparent reason in this time of year, it is currently unknown when this surge will stop.

It might be a short-term price correction that follows the selloff and BCH hash war, or it might be a start of a bull run that investors have been hoping for since January. Right now, it is believed that this is the first real price surge since July. Analysts have also stated that constant bouncing shows strong demand for the coin. However, in case it falls once more, the move down will be a very violent one.

However, if the coin manages to hold on to the current trend, there is no way to predict where it may end up. The only thing that is certain in this scenario is that it will step up.

Based on the coin’s history, analysts have set up numerous milestones that its value is expected to hit, whether it goes up or down. The price of $3,700, at which the coin stopped its free fall was one of those milestones. When the price is falling, these prices are expected to soften the fall and try to keep the coin from going any further. When the price is rising, these values are resistances that are to be broken. The latest resistance that BTC managed to break was at $4,150, and the coin exceeded it with ease.

Right now, it is closing the gap between its current price and $4,400, and after that — it is anyone’s guess. However, experts say that considering BTC’s activities in the last two weeks, breaking through these resistances will be a difficult task.

SEC Postpones Bitcoin ETF Decision Once Again



Bitcoin ETF

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…

What to Expect in 2019: BTC, BAT, and Steem




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…

The Three Biggest Problems with Crypto




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:


Failed projects

Immature technology
