Bitcoin FOMO Will Lead BTC Price To $10k: Tom Lee

Published

on

bitcoin fomo

Last week, many best cryptocurrency news sites reported the situation about Bitcoin flirting with the $9,000 level for the first time in a year. This has led one of the major bulls of the industry, Fundstrat’s Tom Lee, to talk about the Bitcoin FOMO and cite data which suggest that the point of no return is here.

Data from Fundstrat has revealed that when the value of BTC crosses the $10,000 barrier, the Bitcoin FOMO blows the way. Labeled as the ‘Level 10 FOMO’, this represents the equivalent value at which Bitcoin has surged in the past.

For the ones of you who don’t know, FOMO is basically a shortcut for the “fear of missing out” which is one of the reasons more people are entering the crypto market and hence improving the price of Bitcoin.

An interesting graphic about the Bitcoin FOMO was published by the global head of the Financial Times, Adam Samson, who tweeted this on Wednesday and is featured the latest cryptocurrency news today:

Then, the Bitcoin bull Tom Lee made an appearance in order to cool Samson’s willingness – but confirmed the conclusions drawn from the data. As Lee wrote:

“Actually the point of the chart is to say “real Bitcoin FOMO” probably starts when BTC exceeds $10,000, as that is a price level only seen 3% of all days… …Mathematically equivalent to exceeding $BTC $4,500 in 2017. Looking back, that price was a level that indeed triggered FOMO.”

Seeing the Bitcoin charts from 2017, we can see that $10,000 was a clear turning point – and a point at which the Bitcoin FOMO was increasing. However, Lee’s data fails to take some fundamental factors into account such as the launch of the CME Group’s Bitcoin futures which helped the rally big time.

Still, the full-blown Bitcoin FOMO mentioned by Tom Lee could become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Even though not everyone agrees with Lee’s numbers, the FOMO levels are definitely a hot topic on many altcoin news sites right now.

“Exceeding 4500 in 2017 was an ATH. As was anything above 1100 during 2017. Comparing them retroactively with a 3% metric is false equivalency. The real comparison for 4500 in 2017 would be btc @ ~77,000 today,” a user named @John Silvestro tweeted.

Other users have agreed with this skeptical take. One of them was a user called @Dumb Genius who also touched the Bitcoin FOMO topic, writing:

“Why wouldn’t Level 10 FOMO for this cycle be around $80K (4x the top of the previous cycle) similar to $4500 (4x of ~$1100)? Is Level 10 FOMO being front run by a factor of 8x? And if that’s the case, will the bubble top percentage of this cycle then be significantly higher?”

Ethereum Could Climb Above $200 According To Analysts

Published

By

ethereum could climb
The past week, Bitcoin and Ethereum were some of the cryptocurrencies that declined heavily below the $10,000 and $200 levels, respectively. And as Bitcoin is preparing to climb to $11,000, Ethereum could climb above $200 too, analysts predict. The latest cryptocurrency news show that the ETH/USD pair even broke the $190 support line recently, settling well below the 100 simple moving average (4 hours). There was also a push below the $185 support level and the price traded as low as $174. As of recently, it also started an upside correction and managed to recover above the $180 levels. Ethereum could climb above $200, mostly because of the break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level and the major decline from the $217 high to the $174 swing low. There are many resistances backing up this factor. The positioning on the upside is near the $192, $195 and $200 levels - and there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $195 on the 4 hours chart of ETH/USD. The most important resistance, as the coming altcoin news show, is near the $200 and $202 levels which acted as the previous supports. Therefore, any successful break above the $195 resistance plus a follow through above $200 is needed for a fresh increase. The next key resistance, according to analysts, is near the $207 level and the 100 simple moving average of 4 hours. Conversely, if there is no upside break above $195 or $200, the price of ETH could resume its decline. However, analysts think that Ethereum could climb above $195 or $200 easily. The pessimistic side shows that if ETH breaks below $174, we can see a $162 price as well. All of this shows that the Ethereum price is currently consolidating below its key resistances such as the $192, $195 and $200. In order to start a strong recovery and an upward move, the price of ETH must settle above $200 in the next few days. The technical indicators on many best cryptocurrency news sites show the following:
  • 4 hours MACD – The MACD for ETH/USD is currently placed in the bullish zone, with neutral signs.
  • 4 hours RSI – The RSI for ETH/USD is currently near the 40 level, with a few positive signs.
  • Major Support Level – $174
  • Major Resistance Level – $200
The total cryptocurrency market cap right now is at $270 billion - a number that has been here for 2 or 3 days.

What Drives BTC Below $10k This Summer: Analysis

Published

on

By

If you are following our latest cryptocurrency news, you probably know that Bitcoin is in a vulnerable situation - again. While many of you are asking what drives BTC below the $10,000 point numerous times this summer, an analyst decided to list all of the factors influencing the price of Bitcoin. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is recouping some losses as it heads to five digits again. BTC is now at $9,980 but is still down by 6% in the past 24 hours. The fact that the market lost $40 billion this week due to corrections like these is also a frightening one. So, if you are wondering what drives BTC and its constant losses, analysts agree that despite the losses the medium-term prospects of Bitcoin are looking surprisingly bullish. This is what one Goldman Sachs analyst recently noted when commenting the latest Bitcoin and altcoin news. Even more recently, analysts have been calling for BTC to bounce at $10,000. Users wondering what drives BTC below this margin got an answer from one trader - who explained that $9,900 is where the 0.786 Fibonacci retracement and 1..6 times the 350-moving average sits - implying that it is a strong bounce zone for Bitcoin. In a recent impassioned Twitter thread, an analyst named Dovey Wan with roots in China, said that the sell-off is a result of a monumentally large Ponzi scheme - which is what drives BTC to go lower and lower. The Primitive Crypto founding partner revealed that PlusToken, a Chinese seeming pyramid scheme, managed to take away with more than 200,000 BTC and more than 800,000 in Ether (ETH). https://twitter.com/DoveyWan/status/1161686134314848256 The scam apparently saw the individuals (as shared in his tweet above) creating fake wallets with "high yield investment return" which resulted in 10 million investors sending capital to the platform. As featured on many best cryptocurrency news sites, what's strange is that not all of these involved in this scheme have been caught and jailed. Wan said that there remain “some people who hold the keys." In short, this Chinese cryptocurrency insider thinks that the recent sell-offs are caused by PlusToken which is what drives BTC to a four digit bottom. This may also explain why the cryptocurrency has yet to bounce.

Bitcoin Cash Is A ‘Wounded Animal’ Right Now: Analysts

Published

By

Bitcoin Cash
The coming altcoin news show Bitocin Cash (BCH) in the focus. According to analysts, Bitcoin Cash is a wounded animal because of its recent downs, but could still surge and post gains near 150%. In times when there is only one mover and shaker in the world of cryptocurrencies and it is evident which one it is (Bitcoin), Bitcoin Cash is volatile and seen as one of the smaller siblings while the other altcoins remain in deep hibernation. In fact, there are no major updates in the recent altcoin news and BCH is one of the cryptocurrencies with gains in the past 24 hours. Speaking of, Bitcoin Cash is now at $331 with gains of more than 1% on the day. What is interesting is that it started the weekend with a low of $308 and surged over 10% to hit an intraday high of $340 during the Sunday trading session. On Monday, we saw a major pullback which took BCH to around $330 which is still a good position - and one that is outperforming most of the other altcoins. Bitcoin Cash is now at the fourth place once again, reclaiming the spot in terms of its market capitalization which is currently below $6 billion. According to the famous cryptocurrency trader DonAlt who is featured on many best cryptocurrency news sites for scouring the altcoin charts, BCH has big potential right now.
“Looks as if it wants to pull a BTC like run soon. As long as it can close through resistance (0.035) I’ll suspect BCH is going to retest blue (0.075) which would be + 150% from here,” he said on Twitter.
https://twitter.com/CryptoDonAlt/status/1160645331262070790 Nearly all of the altcoin pairs have a potential, however, since the Bitcoin dominance is still so high, Bitcoin Cash is among the altcoins with the most potential, BCH can register gains and on a shorter time frame will apparently test resistance, as a prominent CNBC trader with a handle 'Big Cheds' noted. https://twitter.com/BigCheds/status/1160681244436381696 All in all, Bitcoin Cash is in our latest cryptocurrency news. Even though it is one of those controversial digital assets that often draws a lot of attention, it is also one of the main altcoins which deserves a place in the spotlight.
“BCH is a wounded, volatile animal. A year from now it will struggle to stay above $100. The project was DOA from day-1. 90% of its market cap is the product of manipulation that will be impossible to meaningfully sustain," as described by the RT Anchor Max Keiser.

Messari Report: BTC Could Copy Gold’s Behavior And Drop Dramatically

Published

messari report
Messari report shows that Bitcoin could drop incredibly in short term before it experiences a historic rise to new highs as we read more about it in the coming altcoin news below. According to the messari report, the current discussion over bitcoin’s utility versus gold adds weight on the behavior of the cryptocurrency. Dan McArdle, the co-founder of the analytics company stated that the cryptocurrency could copy how the gold reacts in the coming year. Also, he stated back a few days ago that the BTC/USD pair might repeat what gold did after the 2008 financial crisis:
 “I would not be surprised if BTC performs like gold did 2008-2011.’’
McArdle referenced some of the fresh comments that were made on gold by Raoul Pal who is the serial asset manager who presented a buoyant outlook for both Bitcoin and gold during the Stephan Livra podcast. On the topic of gold’s current return to form in line with the number one cryptocurrency, he stated that the markets are now preparing for the dollar’s own winning streak. He tweeted:
 “Gold is rightly doing its job, sniffing out a BIG problem and is exploding higher, outperforming even the super strong dollar as gold begins to price in an end game of an eventual MASSIVE readjustment of the dollar (in 12 months? 18 months?).’’
As it was reported in the latest cryptocurrency news, the Bitcoin price bull runs since April have started a strong debate once again about the potential long-term and gold-like safe-haven assets. There are now more and more figures that continue to shift into Bitcoin for investors that are looking for a hedge against the inflation that is currently happening. Some of the figures include Circle’s CEO Jeremey Allaire as well as some other consultancy executives this week. For example, Peter Schiff doubled down on his opinion that gold is now better than cryptocurrency. He even took it to Twitter and stated that many customers are not buying Bitcoin because it is a safe-haven asset:
“The Chinese aren’t buying Bitcoin as a safe haven. Speculators are buying, betting that the Chinese will buy it as a safe haven!”
