06.08.2018: Why you do not need to wait for new records bitcoin in 2018? 5 reasons

2018 – not the best for bitcoin. Sluggish market demand and fluctuations in investors led to decrease of the asset price. Captainvalor Tuur Demeester sure that in 2018 there is nothing to wait for new records cryptocurrency.

Some investors and advisers, including Lee, believe that $5700 is the bottom of bitcoin, and now the asset is simply obliged to grow rapidly! Economist Turr Demeester hold opposite positions; for instance, there a clear side and a downward trend, and reversal is not expected.

The analyst said that the rapid rally, when bitcoin rose to $20 000 actually started in August of 2015 (when the asset was worth less than $200). The market needs time to review such a record.

Demeester called 5 reasons for limited growth of bitcoin:

  • Miners. Growing hash rate on the background of reducing the cost of the asset makes the mining process costly and unprofitable. Those who could not upgrade their hardware and find the cheapest electricity tariffs, retired. Bitcoin mining is concentrated in the hands of large mining farms that will soon be able to manipulate its course.
  • The decline in trading volume. Bitcoin still interested, but not so intense as before. Unlike last winter and spring, the trading volume decreased by 30%.
  • The lack of interest. American Institute of Gallup in the last quarter conducted a survey. It turned out that less than 0.5% of investors from the USA ready in the near future to invest in bitcoin. Google Analytics also confirm the decrease of people’s interest in cryptocurrency.
  • Bias of institutional investors. Funds not willing to invest large amounts, as dissatisfied with the conditions of storage and security of cryptocurrency.
  • The lack of ETF bitcoin. The economist believes that exchange traded funds (ETF) for bitcoin this year did not appear. When this happens, the assets will be available for retail investors. After the launch of ETF growth is to be expected the first cryptocurrency, because when there was a gold ETF, the price of precious metals increased by 350%!

    26.06.2018: Why fall cryptocurrency? – 5 reasons

    Last year the digital asset has grown by leaps and bounds. During the year the capitalization of the cryptocurrency rose from $17.7 billion to $613 billion, a growth of 3300%! In 2018, the virtual currency fell to a minimum, and there are 5 reasons.

    5 reasons for the fall of cryptocurrency:

  • Technologies are not yet popular. The most important technology in the cryptocurrency is the blockchain, a decentralized block chain, which is responsible for processing, conducting monetary transactions and saving data. Blockchain technology can be implemented in the field of transportation, medicine, Finance, logistics, but experts do not hurry. While businesses and organizations are not willing to use unproven technology that has not demonstrated the ability to scale. News of intentions go out every day, but real examples yet.
  • Cryptocurrencies have no purpose. There is no catalyst, or the need for investors to switch to digital currency. That is Fiat money and traditional translations in the foreseeable future will dominate. Take the bitcoin. Most often it is bought in exchange for other digital assets and quick profits, but not in order to use in real life. Without the expressed usefulness of the cryptocurrencies are unlikely to be popular.
  • A hacker attack. Breaking the Bank is unlikely to collapse the price of gold or currencies with cryptocurrencies it is not so simple. According to the analysis of Carbon Black just for 5 months was stolen cryptocurrency worth more than $1 billion. This is followed by important consequences: firstly, it is an indication that the blockchain and cryptocurrency is not as protected as the developers say, secondly, without additional precautions it is impossible to obtain the trust of retail investors and financiers on wall street.
  • The interdependence of cryptocurrency. Regardless of how many crypto currency is your portfolio most of the assets follows the movement of bitcoin. No traditional fundamental indicators that investors can use to assess asset. Long-term course of cryptocurrency to predict, no one can.
  • The disinterest of institutional investors. Most investors on wall street are sitting on the fence. They are not eager to invest in decentralized assets, because of the high risk of theft or fraud. Companies that have already reached the cryptocurrency market, actively manipulate the course and contribute to its further decline. Thus, in particular, occurred after the introduction of futures on bitcoin.
