$1 Billion in Profits and 3 More Reasons to Ditch Bitcoin (BTC) for Binance Coin (BNB)

Truth be told, Bitcoin (BTC) is the safest cryptocurrency investment option out there. The digital asset has even been crowned King due to the simple fact that the crypto markets usually respond in tandem with the general action of BTC. Evidence of this is the recently delayed Bitcoin ETF announcement by the SEC that has led the market in a sense of turmoil for the last 3 days. BTC has since increased its dominance to over 48%.

But there could be another Crypto King in the horizon who is backed by a crypto exchange that expects $1 Billion in profits for 2018.

The exchange known as Binance was reported to be projecting annual profits for the year of 2018 that is to the tune of $1 Billion. The same exchange has a very stable coin that is used as a base pair on the exchange and to pay for trading fees. This coin is Binance Coin (BNB). This coin was how the exchange funded its ICO last year in July 2017. Therefore, backed by such a profitable exchange ($1 Billion in projected profits), BNB is sure to continue gaining in value for the foreseeable future.

BNB is currently ranked 16th on Coinmarketcap.com and valued at $12.39 at the moment of writing this. The total supply of the coin is 192.44 Million with a circulating supply of 95.512 Million. This then brings us to the second reason why BNB should become an investment option.

During the ICO, 200 Million BNB coins were minted in total. As illustrated in the project’s whitepaper, the exchange would burn some BNB every annual quarter till there were only 100 Million BNB coins remaining in the total supply. This means that the difference of 7.56 Million BNB seen above in the total supply, has been destroyed by the organization in the last year and they intend on continuing to do so. As the amount of BNB reduces in the markets, so shall the value of the coin with time.

A third reason why BNB should be on your radar is that the Binance exchange plans on extending its services by opening offices/exchanges in Uganda and Malta. This means more visibility for the exchange as well as new clients for trading. This will increase the trading volume and the use of BNB on the now global exchanges. The latter will increase its demand and its price.

Finally, and observing the general trend of BNB in the crypto markets, it has continually risen in value over the months due to the aforementioned reasons. Its history is of continual increment in value with time can be seen with the shared chart above. This means that the same trend of increased value will be observed in the future. BNB is, therefore, a better buy and HODL option than Bitcoin (BTC).

3 Cryptocurrencies Most Likely to Follow Bitcoin’s Performance

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…

4 Reasons Why the New Bitcoin Rally Is Unlikely to Stop Now

After more than a year of declining prices, the crypto market is finally seeing a period of serious recovery — one that has already brought digital currencies to heights not seen in over half a year now.

Only days ago, Bitcoin surged past several major resistance levels and managed to exceed its yearly high of over $8,000. Already, many skeptics are predicting the soon end of the bull run, and the possibility of yet another sharp decline. However, there are signs that suggest otherwise — that this bull run is only getting started, and that it will not end anytime soon.

There are four reasons why this is the case, and they are as follows:

1) Bakkt

There is the long-awaited Bitcoin futures exchange, Bakkt, which recently announced that the July test date for Bitcoin futures is soon to be set. Bakkt’s launch was delayed multiple times already, so the announcement came as quite a surprise. However, it appears that it will happen quite soon, after all.

As soon as its arrival becomes a certainty, Bitcoin will likely skyrocket even further, just like gold did when gold ETF appeared in 2013.

2) Bitcoin completely ignored the hacking of Binance

Binance has been the largest crypto exchange by trading volume for a while now, and as such, many expected that, if anything were to happen to it, Bitcoin…

The crypto market’s recovery progresses further, and at a rapid pace, at that. Bitcoin has just surpassed the $8,000 mark, which is the first time its price has been that high since July of last year. In addition, the entire crypto market is making billions within hours.

Bitcoin (BTC) sees another serious surge

In the past 24 hours, the total crypto market cap has gone up by around $24 billion. Meanwhile, BTC price has grown by $1,000 within the same period, as the largest coin traded barely above $7,000 on early Monday. At the time of writing, the coin’s price sits at $8.014.31, with a 14% growth in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, the BTC market cap has gone up to $141.85 billion, and even the coin’s trading volume surged to over $31 billion.

While many are wondering whether this is a return to the massive heights seen back in 2017 or only a temporary surge which will soon see a correction — no signs of an upcoming decline have been noticed as of yet. In fact, new heights were made and then exceeded multiple times in the past week, with a massive 33% gain during that time. And, with Bitcoin’s dominance at 60%, many are expecting that massive altcoin surges are to be expected as well.

The growth of altcoins can already be seen, as Bitcoin
