This year has definitely not been a good time for crypto. In fact, during the first two quarters of 2018, we saw how the whole market alongside its king, Bitcoin (BTC), struggled with clear-cut dips that launched the prices of several coins to worrying heights. In this sense, both enthusiasts, and investors were waiting for a moment where things started to change, one of the generalized trends of the market.

And to say the least, we all felt calmed when the situation began to improve a few days ago as it all seemed like the market was giving an upturn, which, of course, was reason enough for all of us to celebrate that the market was proving one more time to be resilient. However, the sad part of the story is that it was just a momentaneous thrill, one that, as of now, is shaking the whole community.

The market capitalization crashed down to a value of 192 billion dollars, one of the lowest values the market has had during its existence.

Nonetheless, we all need to recall something similar occurred back in 2015 when the market broke to pieces by decreasing an 80 percent of the market cap and reached a value of 170 billion, a situation that someway gives us a relief considering the fact that back then the sector managed to survive… but what can we really expect to happen this time? Let’s see an introspective of what is happening with the market right now!

Public opinions on the crypto market

It’s true, we have recovered from losses of this kind before, and is also true that the market simply tends to be a volatile environment. But are we really gonna recover again this time?

Well, one of the crucial factors we need to keep in mind is the utility of the virtual coin we are holding. As long as the currency we own has a purpose and an individual utility, we can count for sure that the coin will surge one more time as people will continue to buy the coin to use it.

This is something we can be sure of with cryptos such as Bitcoin (BTC), which actually has proven to be one of the most used coins for shopping purposes.

On the other hand, the landscape is entirely different for altcoins. It is likely that some of the altcoins existing will manage to create a strategy to survive, but the sure thing is that we can only be secure that Bitcoin will make it.

With relation to this, Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum and Bitcoin Magazine, has stated recently that the crypto strategy needs to change to see a different response from the community.

According to him, we are not in a place where we cannot have a growth of 1000 times the current prices anymore. He said, that Instead of creating hype, the industry should actually focus on building coins with real purposes.

The declarations of Vitalik result intriguing considering the fact that Ethereum (ETH) went down by 34% percent in the last three to four days, and that ICOs being the first utility of the Ethereum network, it seems like people are not investing in ICOs anymore as this is not profitable in the long run. To say the least, it can be considered a risky thing to invest in Ethereum as of now.

Regarding the topic, many users on Twitter have given interesting opinions on the situation. @Apompliano tweeted a message saying that despite the drop in the prices of the market people continue believing it will recover very soon. But this is actually not true; we need to accept and “truly believe crypto is over” to see a recovery.

On the other hand, another Twitter user published a message that worths paying attention to. The message read:

Conclusion

The utility can be guaranteed in coins like Bitcoin, people from all around the world can actually buy Bitcoin and then use it freely as they want, so we definitely can be sure that the coin will continue to grow and it will recover soon.

On the other hand, the story is a completely different one for altcoins… It’s not a matter of the market to be over; it’s just a matter of the number of offers that actually has not a purpose. As I see it, the fourth quarter may be the time the market (Bitcoin first, apparently) takes off again. So stay tuned.

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…
