According to CNBC’s Kellie Ell, Founder and CEO of Pantera Capital, Dan Morehead believes that the current market presents the perfect opportunity to buy Bitcoin. Morehead believes that the price of Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies is very cheap right now and thus, it is the perfect time to “buy now and participate in the rally as it goes.” You can see the full report in CNBC for yourself, here- https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/31/buy-bitcoin-now-while-its-still-cheap-says-cryptocurrency-investor.html
According to Ell, Morehead has said:
“Getting invested now so that in three, four, five months when the institutional, quality-regulated custodians that we’re hearing about come online, they’ll already have their positions. Without even thinking about it, you make an average of 239 percent. That’s the essence of this trade. It rarely ever gets cheap to its long-term average, so, today is a good day to be buying.”
By being at the helm of a large investment firm, we should consider that Morehead is speaking with good authority, however, we should also bear in mind that this article specifically is not investment advice. This is just the opinion of a figurehead, a figurehead who is going to be biased and, who can profit from people buying into cryptocurrency, therefore, Morehead’s comments are hardly controversial.
This however is an opinion that does bear well with the current markets and moreover, is an opinion that is reflected within the minds of many investors. Prices are pretty cheap right now, but, that doesn’t mean that prices aren’t going to get any cheaper, they no doubt will, if not soon, later down the line, we will see this downwards trend take off again. It’s the volatile nature of cryptocurrencies, the nature that makes them both a pleasure, and a hinderance.
Therefore, with this in mind, take Morehead’s comments on the chin, he might be right, but there is also a great deal of risk involved in investment. Make your own decisions, do your own research. We are here to help you do that but even so, wider reading and an open attitude can really set you up, for a prosperous future as a part of our crypto revolution.
