FOMO Alarmingly High, Is Now Too Late To Trade Bitcoin?

FOMO Alarmingly High, Is Now Too Late To Trade Bitcoin?

After months of inactivity, Bitcoin has woken up and stood above $12,000. According to Glassnode, 75% of Bitcoin wallets are in a state of profitability. The FOMO mode, or fear of missing out, could be seen in the market and many people wonder whether they are too late to the party. 

Bitcoin holding above $10,000 is not a common occasion, as it has only been trading above this level for over 27 weeks in history. So the fact that Bitcoin is still standing firm above this level despite the sell-offs in the past two weeks, indicates that this could really be the bull-run we are waiting for. 

However, currently, the Bitcoin fear & greed index is 82, signaling extreme greed sentiment in the market. Major corrections often come when the market reaches extreme greed. So retail traders who FOMO into the market and want to hold some coins should remain cautious. 

Luckily, there are still ways to earn profit with Bitcoin no matter which direction Bitcoin is heading. 

Futures trading - a popular instrument for risk hedge and speculation

Bitcoin futures trading enables traders to long or short Bitcoin, so even when Bitcoin price is decreasing, traders could gain profits from it. 

For instance, if we have 1 BTC and invest it into the spot market, we would only lose money if the price of BTC declines. But if we open a short contract with that 1 BTC when Bitcoin is trading at $12,000 and sell the contract when it declines to $11,000, here is what our profit will be:

Profit = ($12,000 - $11,000) * 1BTC/$11,000 = 0.09 BTC

The more BTC price declines, the more profit we could earn by shorting BTC. This also applies to the scenario where bitcoin continues to surge.

Another key feature of futures trading is leverage. With leverage, we can invest a small amount of money to open a larger position and amplify the profits if bet in the right direction. So even if the market only moves a little, leverage could help us make substantial money. For instance, if we employ 100x leverage in the mentioned trade, our profit will increase 100 fold from 0.09 BTC to 9.09 BTC, and all we need to invest in is 1 BTC. 

Where to trade 100x leverage BTC futures?

As long as there are price fluctuations, traders can earn profit with futures trading. If futures trading is your thing, the next thing you should consider is finding a user-friendly crypto exchange.

The benefits of Ethereum 2.0 will come sooner rather than later according to Vitalik Buterin

The benefits of Ethereum 2.0 will come sooner rather than later according to Vitalik Buterin

Quick take

1 minute read

  • Vitalik Buterin, has recently answered a number of questions from the community as a part of a “ask me anything“ session on Reddit. 
  • The co-founder highlighted many different topics but specifically said that he expects some significant and noticeable network improvements to come for the project sooner rather than later. 

Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of one of the biggest crypto projects in the industry known as Ethereum has recently answered a number of questions from the community as a part of a “ask me anything“ session on Reddit. The co-founder highlighted many different topics but specifically said that he expects some significant and noticeable network improvements to come for the project sooner rather than later. He further said:

“TLDR: merge happens faster, PoS happens faster, you get your juicy 100k TPS faster.”

Over the years, the network for Ethereum has experienced some significant rounds of high congestion. Three years ago in 2017, the popular CryptoKitties game slowed down the network massively but with the decentralised finance space growing rapidly, the network has been seriously clogged up.

As a result of this, it has led to high fees and longer than average confirmation times.

With Ethereum 2.0 very much just around the corner, there is a significant scaling upgrade solution that is supposedly going to speed up the network rapidly. This will increase the number of transactions per second and it will also move the blockchain to a different consensus algorithm known as a proof of stake. Phase 0 for the upgrade is set to occur on the 1st of December in two weeks!

The co-founder further went on to say that “all of these changes are designed to decrease the time until eth2 becomes useful to people.”

  • Ricardo Salinas Pliego is the second wealthiest businessman in Mexico and the 166th richest man in the world. 
  • It was recently announced last week that he has invested 10% of his liquid portfolio into the leading cryptocurrency, bitcoin. 

Ricardo Salinas Pliego is the second wealthiest businessman in Mexico and the 166th richest man in the world. It was recently announced last week that he has invested 10% of his liquid portfolio into the leading cryptocurrency, bitcoin. This came after he shared a video throwing huge amounts of paper money into the garbage. Not only does it show how worthless the government-issued cash is in today’s world but it also shows how important digital assets such as bitcoin could become.

Furthermore, the video indicates the hyperinflation and how bad it got in Venezuela.

Ricardo is worth more than $11 billion at the time of writing and is the only billionaire from Mexico who seems to have benefited from the coronavirus pandemic and the economic crisis that has come as a result.

XRP Price Analysis: XRP Continues Correcting

XRP Price Analysis: XRP Continues Correcting

This analysis brought to you by RoboForex.

On Friday, November 27th, XRP has reached stability but is still correcting and trading at $0.5550.

As we can see in the daily chart, after finishing a quick rising wave, XRP/USD price is correcting to the downside. At the moment, the asset is trading close to 61.8% fibo, a breakout of which will indicate further pullback towards 50.0% fibo. The MACD histogram has broken 0 and is still moving to the upside – it may be another signal in favor of a new rising impulse. The upside target of the completion of the correction will be at 0.6800.

In the H4 chart, the cryptocurrency continues correcting to the downside. Right now, it is testing the support level, a breakout of which will result in further decline towards 50.0% fibo. The Stochastic indicator has formed a “Black cross” inside the “overbought area” and is still falling, which is an additional signal in favor of further decline towards 50.0% fibo. After completing the correction, the asset may test and break 61.8% fibo, and then continue trading upwards. The upside target is similar to the daily chart, 0.6800.

Ripple started its rally on November 20th, together with other cryptocurrencies. There are a lot of explanations of why it happened, from investors’ search for alternatives to fiat instruments to a surge in interest in cryptoassets from institutional players. Indeed, all of this really took place and, of course, expansion of the interest was in favor of cryptocurrencies. The entire market is on the rise but since “trees don’t grow sky-high”, active purchases faded to the correction.

Over this period of time, XRP has managed to update its high reached in May 2018. The asset is still moving like 80% below the highs of January 2018, when it was trading at $3.7, but investors are surely positive about further growth.

At the moment, XRP is back to third place in the list of the strongest and most popular cryptoassets.
