Within the last couple of days, the number one virtual currency, Bitcoin, appreciated from $6,367 US dollars to $7,420, marking an incredible stride after continuous dips. But many might be thinking if the current BTC bull run is going to continue or end even quicker than it started? We have reasons to believe it will carry on, at least for a while. Let’s discover why.

The force behind Bitcoin’s latest price rise

The proclamation caused Bitcoin’s most recent and most substantial price surge in weeks that the most significant asset management company in the world, BlackRock, was looking into ways to invest in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

According to information gathered from Financial News, BlackRock has instigated a working group that has been tasked to focus on ways the company can take advantage of virtual currencies, and whether Bitcoin is a viable investment option, it can look at in future.

Two sources that sought anonymity disclosed to the media that a team has already been assembled from different departments of the business to examine the structure of virtual currency, Bitcoin, and the workings of blockchain technology. Part of their mandate is to monitor BlackRock’s competitors and their dealings with cryptocurrency.

The news that BlackRock Inc. is probing the crypto sector is causing excitement on the virtual currency sphere, which in turn is leading to sharp gains for most of the leading virtual currencies in the market. Bitcoin, ranked number one, is particularly experiencing sharp price appreciations since the late morning session, that saw it break through the 6,500 US dollar barrier for the first time since June.

The Monday morning price surge was followed by an afternoon steady price advancement session that pushed the value of Bitcoin to surpass the 6,700 US dollar mark. The virtual currency finished the day at a high of 6,741 US dollar, up from its previous level of 6,357 US dollar. Bitcoins market cap currently stands at around $127 billion.

Is Bitcoin a Bubble?

In today’s world, even those who have not invested in cryptocurrency are starting to keep tabs on the market’s progress. This is because currencies such as Bitcoin have been recording price increments that have left many Bitcoin holders and investors excited about the possibilities of how much its value might climb.

The cryptocurrency market is now getting interests from complete armatures who believe now is the time to invest in the digital asset following the Bitcoin upward surge. However, some analysts are a skeptic of the progress and wonder when the Bitcoin bubble burst.

On whether Bitcoin is a bubble, it is hard to determine if it is considering Bitcoin is an entire industry, this is according to Derek Thompson, a senior economics editor for The Atlantic. However, Derek believes that Bitcoin’s latest patterns are similar to other famous bubbles such as the dotcom bubble that did burst.

The number one ranked virtual currency is an asset that is on everyone’s mouth and thoughts. Investors are making huge life investment decisions based on the value of Bitcoin; they often make remarkable predictions on the future of the digital coin.

The volatility of virtual currencies meets all the requirements to make the whole crypto market to be a bubble. On when it is going to burst remains a mystery, but as things look at the moment, Bitcoin is having a strong breakout that more likely is going to continue for a good period now (at least).

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…
