Market Update Report August.21

Despite the green flashes here and there, the Halt market continues to absorb blows and bleeds investors’ money. The mother of all the alternative coins, Ethereum, which already reached a peak that kissed $1,500, fell to a dollar value of $280. Arthur Hayes, one of the founders of BitMEX, predicted another drop aiming his prediction at under $100. Another currency that raised its head during the hype was Ripple, who has also been hit hard and from a record of almost $4, its dropped and now trades around 30 cents. Uncertainty in the market of alternative coins brings with it fear and doubt that distances new investors and even smuggles the old ones who do not see the floor in sight. After sharp corrections that have reached 90% in some cases, think twice before entering another FOMO round.

Nevertheless, Bitcoin had a relatively calm week where we saw a return to the support areas. The sharp declines of the alternative coins against the dollar are also true as to Bitcoin, which maintains its relative value. This strengthens its position in the cryptocurrency landscape and gives us another reminder as to who controls the market. However, here as well one must remember that volatility is an inseparable part and that homework must be done before choosing to invest in Bitcoin. At the time of writing, the size of the Crypto market is $211 Billion, and Bitcoin’s dominance is 52.6% over the Altcoins

In conclusion, it can be said that the hype fell and the excitement of the new investors was replaced by the taste of bitter loss. However, despite the bear market, the number of companies in the sector continues to grow. Their gates are open to all who are concerned, injecting innovation and creativity into the old and mangy financial world. We therefore expect that the last word has not yet been uttered and that the gates of the Old World will finally burst before Bitcoin and the developing economy. Evidence of this can be seen in the statements made by senior executives in the financial world who are already undergoing the process of the decentralized mindshift that Bitcoin brings with it. Thus beginning regulatory moves that are looking for ways to implement Bitcoin. As part of the power struggle between these two worlds, the market carries its eyes and waits for the approval of Bitcoin’s ETFs. Even if rejected again by the SEC, it will eventually be approved. This will allow exposure to new types of investors. Whether we like the developments in Bitcoin not with rate will rising or falling, the bull has already left the cage and it is unstoppable.
