Bitcoin (BTC) Top Very Likely To Be Already In, NVT Signals Downside Ahead

Bitcoin (BTC) Top Very Likely To Be Already In, NVT Signals Downside Ahead

Bitcoin (BTC) is very likely to have already topped out around $13,941. This rally is a lot similar to those that we have seen in the past that leads to the formation of a double top that triggers a downtrend. BTC/USD has been on a parabolic run for the past few months without any significant correction. It is not a question of if the price is going to begin a downtrend but when it will begin the downtrend. Some retail traders might disagree in light of the bullish euphoria and actually think that this could go on forever but history tells us otherwise. Every financial asset follows cycles and Bitcoin (BTC) is no stranger to such cycles. The current Tether (USDT) pumped rally has made a lot of traders overly optimistic and made them believe that this is the beginning of a bull market, but a thorough analysis shows us that we are not even half way through the bear market just yet.

The price is still following the 2014 part of the last cycle which means that we are far from seeing the price bottom just yet. Before even looking at the technicals or the fundamentals, if we take a look at what industry leaders and influencers on Crypto Twitter are saying, they are all on the same page. If BTC/USD were to rocket towards $20,000 from here all of them would be right and all of them would be cashing out. If that were to happen, how would the casinos stay in business? Some of the popular accounts on Twitter are even sharing posts about a large number of Tether (USDT) being printed every now and then as if it is a good thing. As traders, there is nothing wrong with trading Bitcoin (BTC) or a useless altcoin as long as the risk/reward is worth it. However, at this point the risk/reward is just not worth it.

The SEC is preparing to go after crypto tax evaders. They are also seeking cooperation of tech giants in this regard. Meanwhile, the NYAG has submitted evidence of Tether and Bitfinex conducting business in New York. In other words, the market is not short of catalysts that could tank the price in a matter of minutes. There is a reason why most investors are in Bitcoin (BTC) and not altcoins at the moment. They want to be able to sell soon as they see fear coming.

Some big players may see it coming; others that believe the price could shoot past $20,000 might be left holding the bags when the price eventually declines to find a bottom between $1,800 and $1,200. NVT Indicator on the weekly chart for XBT/USD is flashing a sell signal again and it is only a matter of time before we see the price decline to $7,682 and subsequently a lot lower in the weeks and months ahead. It is important to note though that altcoins are likely to experience the most pain when

SoftBank CEO believes bitcoin will be useful in the future but “not any time soon“

SoftBank CEO believes bitcoin will be useful in the future but “not any time soon“

Quick take

1 minute read

  • Crypto adoption is on the rise recently since the leading cryptocurrency of bitcoin has been doing the rounds when it comes to bullish momentum. 
  • But not everyone yet understands fully what bitcoin is or how it works. 

Crypto adoption is on the rise recently since the leading cryptocurrency of bitcoin has been doing the rounds when it comes to bullish momentum. But not everyone yet understands fully what bitcoin is or how it works. 

There are numerous videos and articles out there that explain it but some people will leave those articles and videos more confused than when they started!

This is a sentiment that is being shown in numerous institutional investors such as Masayoshi Son, who is the billionaire technology entrepreneur and the Chief Executive Officer of SoftBank, a conglomerate institution based in Japan. He has said that he doesn’t “understand“ bitcoin as it rises significantly in its value.

Son has said that bitcoin investment is seemingly pulling his attention away from his actual own business according to a report from business insider last week on the 19th of November.

He added that he would spend five minutes every day watching the price of bitcoin go up and down highlighting that he was told by a friend to invest 1% of his personal assets into the coin. Quick maths shows that this is around $200 million.

When discussing the future of digital currency, the CEO said that digital currencies will be useful in the future and are great for development but it will take time and they won’t go anywhere any time soon.

“I think digital currency will be useful [...] But I don't know what digital currency, what structure, and so on.”

As it grows, how much ground will XRP cover next year?

As it grows, how much ground will XRP cover next year?

Quick take

1 minute read

  • Is 2021 XRP’s year?
  • How adoption will result in the success of the token.

Timothy Peterson, the well-known advocate for bitcoin and manager of global macro, believes that the San Francisco-based XRP token will have its best year in 2021 since 2017. 

As previously reported earlier this week, Peterson has recently said:

“I know it doesn’t look like much but this is $XRP lowest price forward. I think people will be surprised at $Ripple’s performance in 2021. It will probably have its best year since 2017 and maybe outperform #Bitcoin.”

As many people will already be aware, the success for ripple and its token will all depend on adoption by financial institutions. They have developed numerous new products such as rippleX in order to help facilitate a seamless transaction on the decentralised ecosystem for the network. But for the tokens targeted market, only 2% of financial institutions are actually willing to use it.

The Chief Technical Officer of Ripple, David Schwartz has previously said that there are numerous obstacles that prevent adoption for the token some of which include problems with regulation. That being said, well-known traders and investors at Galaxy trading have said that the asset is proven to be resilient.

“Although it is perhaps one of the most disliked projects, it has more than once shown its aggressive nature at a time when no one is expecting it.”

They see that the coin is capable of sparking by 10 times its current price as they say:

“We believe that this moment is very close and since catching the exact bottom is something very unpredictable, our advice to all who want to invest is to start buying at these “golden” levels of support where 10X can become a reality.”
