The cryptocurrency space is growing larger and has more impact on our everyday life with each new year. Despite the low prices and market crashes in 2018, the situation on the market seems to be taking a turn for the better, especially after a new surge that started on February 8th. However, as we progress through another year of cryptos’ fight for survival and adoption, the 2020 US Presidential Elections continue to approach.

With that in mind, it might be worth knowing what the current major Presidential candidates think about the crypto space, and Bitcoin (BTC), in particular. Of course, no one can know who will get elected and whether the next US President will be a crypto investor or someone who will have no problems with imposing even stricter regulations that might limit the market’s potentials.

Even so, we can at least see what they had to say about the crypto industry, and form some sort of expectations regarding the future based on that. It should be noted that the list does not include every candidate, only the major ones, and those who decided to take a notable stance towards Bitcoin.

1) Cory Booker

Let’s start with the Democratic candidates, the first of which on our list is Senator Cory Booker. Unfortunately, Sen. Booker did not reveal what his thoughts are on Bitcoin and the crypto industry, even though he sits on the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Communications Technology, Innovation, and the Internet. While there is still a long way to go before the elections, and he might reveal his stance at some point during that time, right now he remains distant from the issue.

2) Tulsi Gabbard

Next, we have Representative Tulsi Gabbard, who has yet to reveal her formal thoughts on the crypto space. However, it is known that she invested in at least two coin — Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC) — during the crypto hype. It has been a while since then, and the crypto space suffered a lot of damage, which may have changed her opinion about cryptos. It is also unknown whether or not she still holds the coins she invested in before, but at some point at least, the representative from Hawaii was definitely interested in digital coins.

3) Elizabeth Warren

Now, when it comes to Senator Elizabeth Warren, we do have an opinion on crypto, although it is not a bullish one. Senator Warren has criticized the crypto space in the past, and she stated that the regulators should do more in terms of overseeing the crypto space. The Senator remains concerned that the unpredictable and volatile assets might end up damaging retailers, and that consumers will get hurt as well. She is also known for being particularly skeptical when it comes to ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings), believing them to be a scam right from the start.

4) Donald Trump

Stepping away from the Democratic candidates, let’s see what the situation is like among the Republicans. The current US President, Donald Trump, has never addressed the crypto issue by providing his own thoughts on the matter. However, several members of his administration (current and former alike) were bullish on the digital currency space. White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, for example, compared Bitcoin to USD back in 2016, praising the coin and claiming that it cannot be manipulated by any government.

Another crypto bull from the Trump Administration is a former White House adviser, Steve Bannon. He even revealed that he actually owns a certain amount of BTC and that he wanted to launch utility tokens. The Trump transition team’s Peter Thiel, who is also a billionaire venture capitalist, stated multiple times that Bitcoin is digital gold, and he even invested in several blockchain projects.

Then, there are White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who had less praise for BTC and more concern, stating that the cryptocurrency is being monitored.

While there are no Republican candidates willing to stand against Donald Trump in the 2020 Presidential Election race, there are some third-party candidates whose views on crypto might be interesting, just like their campaigns.

5) John McAfee

John McAfee has had a colorful life, and his latest interests revolve heavily around Bitcoin and the crypto industry. It is well-known that no other candidate is more bullish on Bitcoin than McAfee, who even claims that Bitcoin will hit the price of $1,000,000 by 2020. McAfee has attempted to run for the US President before as well, and his new campaign has attracted additional attention as he plans to run it from international waters, due to the fact that he is on the run from the IRS.

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…

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…
