Hedge fund predicts $115K Bitcoin price and the fall of ‘speculative’ altcoins

Analysts say Bitcoin and Ether’s growing dominance of the crypto market are signals that the current bull market is drastically different than the last one. New data from Pantera Capital, an investment firm and hedge fund, suggests that Bitcoin’s (BTC) current price action is closely following the stock-to-follow model’s trajectory and the firm’s analysts believe BTC will reach $115,212 by Aug. 1.  Bitcoin’s parabolic rally may have placed the price a bit ahead of the model’s projection and this week’s 28% correction sent temporary shivers across the […]

Top 5 cryptocurrencies to watch this week: BTC, LINK, UNI, XTZ, ATOM

Bitcoin’s brief period of consolidation has opened a path for select altcoins to rally higher. Bitcoin (BTC) price has yet to recapture the $40,000 level and traders who were expecting a quick resumption of the uptrend may have been caught off guard by the recent pullback. This could have led to the liquidation of about $500 million worth of cryptocurrency futures positions in the past 24 hours. Over leveraged positions provide the necessary ammunition during the uptrend, but they become a liability when the trend reaches an […]

Strategist: Bitcoin more likely to be successful ‘in the long run’ than Ethereum

Lyn Alden likens Ethereum to the Concorde aircraft: functional, but not “an economically sustainable project.” Lyn Alden’s economic analysis of Ethereum released today compares the smart contract network to the Concorde jet: functional as it has “a ton of smart developers working on it,” but unlikely to become an economically sustainable project in the long run. She ran down some of Ethereum’s main features as evidence of her assertion, calling the use-case of many decentralized apps “circular and speculative.” In addition, she said the network’s nodes are […]

Dollar-Cost Averaging Crypto Profits: Low-Risk Bitcoin Investing Without All the Stress

Bitcoin prices and a number of other digital assets have grown significantly in value during the last decade.

It is not that governments specifically aim to make it illegal. Rather, every proposal that comes out lately seems to enact rules that are impossible for decentralized finance to meet. The United States The most recent example is the notice for proposed rulemaking by the United States Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, which requires banks and […]

Guggenheim CIO: ‘Speculative frenzy’ to die down, but $400k target still on

While some traders have gotten mixed signals, Guggenheim’s Scott Minerd is taking the long view.

Secure Bitcoin self-custody: Balancing safety and ease of use

With Bitcoin’s price clocking $40,000 recently, safe and secure measures for storing the valuable digital asset are once again on the agenda. Bitcoin’s supply is capped at 21 million, but a significant proportion of that total sum is likely lost forever. This situation is due to a variety of reasons such as lost private keys and discarded storage devices containing substantial amounts of Bitcoin (BTC). When Bitcoin owners are not being careless with their wallet passwords, they can sometimes be targeted by hackers looking to steal their […]
