This One Chart Will Change The Way You Look At The Recent Bitcoin Crash

The cryptocurrency space has taken a beating over the last few weeks. Bitcoin (BTC) is down 65% on highs. Ethereum (ETH) is down just shy of 50% across pretty much the same period. If you factor in the pre-South Korean removal prices from CoinMarketCap, Ripple (XRP) is trading at a more than 80% discount to its early January highs.

But here’s the thing: this is a severe correction, sure, but it’s far from the bubble bursting that many are calling.

What’s important to recognize is that those people that have lost money (the only people that have lost money) are those that entered the markets over the last eight weeks or so. Everyone else in the markets have made money.

In other words, it’s only the newer entrants that are sitting on net losses.

Interestingly, it’s the same people that have been hyping this market and that now are claiming its crashing and burning.

CNBC, Bloomberg, etc., were at the forefront of those outlets pushing people to jump into the markets and buy bitcoin, or Ripple, or whatever, as prices ran up in December. And now, it’s these outlets that are fielding so called experts claiming crypto has had its time.

So how does anyone holding bitcoin or other coins deal with the current crash?

Well, take a look at the chart below.

Look familiar? Probably not – it’s the first real collapse we ever saw in the bitcoin price and it happened back in April 2013.

At the time, the price ran up to $260 and then collapsed to a little over $40 within a few days.

But here’s the interesting thing. This period (the end of the third quarter, 2013) coincided with the first time bitcoin started to attract any sort of mainstream media attention. The attention pushed price up as a wave of speculative new money entered the market.

The wave of extra attention pushed the price up and up until it hit an inflection point, the price started to fall and all of the media outlets that caused the run by touting bitcoin to new buyers changed their opinion, called for the death of bitcoin and created a crash.

So, we’ll ask again – sound familiar?

The only difference this time around is that we’re talking about tens of thousands of dollars as opposed to hundreds of dollars in valuation.

The key thing to recognize here is that whatever anyone says, this is far from unprecedented in the bitcoin space and – indeed – it’s something that we’ve seen happen almost to the note, on a number of occasions in the past.

Last time around (so, going back to April 2013), markets took around 7 months to recover. Exactly how long the recovery is going to take this time around is anyone’s guess – it could be longer, because we’re talking about higher per-coin pricing, or it could be shorter based on the dramatically increased daily volume and external interest in the space that exists right now as compares to April 2013 – but that things will recovery is far from a guess.

There are only two sensible things to do at current prices, then.

First, delete Blockfolio (or at least stop checking it every few hours) and ride out the dip. Let the panic sellers exit at the wrong time, do nothing and wait for the price to turn around.

Second, buy buy buy.

In the hyper-competitive world of online casinos, operators are always looking for ways to stand out from the crowd. The most usual methods include using distinctive branding, offering generous bonuses and making sure that they are on all of the major so-called affiliate sites where players can compare and contrast casinos’ different offerings.

But now a whole new generation of casinos are starting to emerge – ones whose key difference isn’t what and how you play, but more in how you pay.

The rise and rise of the cryptocurrency casino is seen by many as the next logical step in a world that is slowly but surely starting to accept that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, et al. are certainly here to stay.

Of course, it’s the first of these cryptocurrencies that has really grabbed the headlines and led the way with its meteoric performance in 2017 when it seemed like its $20,000 value was just the start of the story. Admittedly, this was short-lived and the value quickly fell back to a more sustainable level but, if it achieved one thing, it was to cement this exciting new kind of currency in the consciousness of the general public.

Why Bitcoin and online casinos are the perfect partners

In many ways, it’s the perfect partnership between Bitcoin and online casinos with multiple benefits for both.

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.
