Bitcoin (BTC) Will Pass $6,200: Prominent Crypto CEO

Published

on

In the latest cryptocurrency news we have Vinny Lingham who is the chief executive of the blockchain startup Civic and a prominent investor. As of recently, Lingham issued a multi-part thread on the matter and broke down on why he believes that the ongoing Bitcoin Rally might not be sustainable.

What’s also interesting is the fact that Lingham pins his thought process to a single fact – altcoins – or what the blockchain entrepreur labeled as “various crypto assets” which have yet to decouple from the price action of Bitcoin.

According to Lingham’s remarks, if Bitcoin rallies or collapses, so will altcoins. Even though these moves are often on different magnitures, the overall trends are similar.

“This makes no sense. How can we have a situation where the market price of one asset dictates the value ascribed to other unrelated assets ,irrespective of whether or not anything changes in their own separate networks,” Lingham elaborated.

He also concluded that if Bitcoin is to enter a sustainable bull run which is backed by industry developments rather than a hype cycle, other assets will also need todecouple from BTC.

And while Lingham looks hesitant when admitting that bears are done with their bloodshed, the industry insider claimed that Bitcoin moving above $6,200 will put the asset into a “bull run” territory.

Simply put, $6,000 may be a crucial target for Bitcoin because it is also a margin where BTC held for more than two or three months in the middle of last year, making analysts think that it was the bottom and the penultimate level of support.

Right now, the predictions vary from analyst to analyst and until BTC convincingly surpasses $6,000 it would be irrational to determine if the market is in a “bull” or a “bear” state.

Hong Kong Demonstrations Strengthen Bitcoin’s Safe-Haven Status

hong kong demonstrations
Hong Kong demonstrations and the major global uncertainty have only made bitcoin’s status as a safe-haven much stronger than it was before according to the Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire after he spoke in an interview which we are reading more about in the latest cryptocurrency news below. Allaire pointed out during the interview that the investors are very much attracted by the non-sovereign digital assets and mainly Bitcoin since the safe-haven status of the coin is now more important than ever. Only last week, Bitcoin broke below the $10,000 price point and then again on Friday. The coin hit the weekly low on August 15th and reached up to $9,685 but it bounced back quickly and is currently trading at $10,712. Allaire explained that the recent decline in the market could be driven by holders who decided to take profit and he even stated:
‘’Last week was a significant risk off week for equities. There were a lot of holders of digital assets whose portfolios were taking a hit and if they had gains, Bitcoin is up over 100%, almost 200% over the past 9 months, it was a place to take some gains.’’
The correction, however, does not affect bitcoin’s appeal as a method of preserving value. Bitcoin’s price has previously been pushed by multiple economic and geopolitical factors including the Hong Kong demonstrations and the China-US trade war. The heads of the G7 countries will soon meet in France and will talk about bitcoin and the entire crypto space according to Allaire. It is unlikely that there will be a crypto-related policy as he pointed out:
‘’I don’t know that we’re going to see specific policy but certainly we’re going to hear some perspective out of there.’’
As it turns out, most of the investor’s don’t recommend investing in bitcoin or even consider it as a safe haven asset but gold, for example, might not be the best investment choice despite the uncertainty in the global markets. The portfolio manager of Valley Forge Capital Management stated in an interview as well as we read in the altcoin news previously:
‘’They [Bitcoin and gold] are collectibles. You are actually not buying any protection, you’re simply speculating. To me, it’s no different than any other speculative activity in your life.’’

Ghana’s Government Wipes Out Billions-Bitcoin Is The Solution

Published

ghana's government
Ghana’s government is yet another example how governments and banks are in full control of the people’s money and bitcoin could be the solution for the problem and we are reading more about it today in the coming altcoin news today. Bitcoin as a decentralized asset would be immune from the monetary madness since according to the reports a huge cleanup of Ghana’s banking system has left hundreds of people where their savings have gone. Ghana’s government crackdown has reduced the number of lenders by a third and resulted in closing down more than 23 savings and loans companies and it has also triggered a run of fund managers which caused a huge selling spree and liquidation of the holdings. About $1.6 billion has been wiped out and most of the assets that the private fund managers supervise for the retail and institutional investors. Ghana’s financial regulator increased the pressure on more than 20 fund managers that they suspected they violated the rules. The SEC has blocked the asset managers from receiving investments because they could be used to pay the existing investors. The run on holdings has left more than 70,000 people seeking answers as to where their savings have gone. The senior finance lecturer Lord Mensah at the University of Ghana commented:
‘’It’s cutting across all the finance houses and when it happens like that the government needs to step in to build confidence again. There’s nothing we can do apart from making sure that we create that necessary environment to regain investors’ confidence again.’’
Ghana’s government bailed out on the investors and the central bank targeted the savings companies that serviced them and many are already blaming that the government is at fault for not having adequate provisions to prevent such problems from happening. The financial crime and governance and regulatory expert Kwadwa Kusi Frimpong wrote:
‘’The issue Ghana faces is more about having adequate system and controls in place to ensure that there is no room for such things to happen.’’
As noted in the latest cryptocurrency news, financial management should not be conducted through middlemen and bitcoin because the savings of hundreds of people could be wiped out in a matter of moments.

Overnight Pump Leads Bitcoin To Gains: Will They Sustain?

Published

By

Overnight Pump
The strong recovery for Bitcoin has been crucial lately, especially when it comes to BTC strengthening its position and lowering its volatility lately. After posting strong recoveries from the recent lows of $9,500, it seems like Bitcoin (BTC) is further extending its upwards momentum and now nears the next key price hurdle that could determine in which direction it will trend in the near term. An overnight pump has suggested that a new green wave is here - but will it sustain? At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up by less than 1%. The overnight pump added 2% to the current price of BTC but also took some in the past hour. Bitcoin is now at $10,736 with a $192 billion market cap. As such, the most dominant cryptocurrency is now nearing the next key price hurdle which could determine in which direction it will continue to trade in the near term. Many best cryptocurrency news sites spoke about the overnight pump and the recovery that followed BTC's drop to the $9,500 level - after being rejected that $12,000. From all of this, we can conclude that the $11,000 and $12,000 levels are very important and difficult for the dominant cryptocurrency to regain. We saw that bulls were not ready to allow bears to push the cryptocurrency into a new macro downtrend. As it stands, Bitcoin has a next key hurdle at $11,000. A decisive movement above this price level will likely lead it to climb significantly higher and the next level of resistance is put at $12,000 - an insurmountable level of resistance for Bitcoin over the past few weeks. The overnight pump also made analysts in the Bitcoin and altcoin news to take notes. One of them is the Cryptomist, a popular Twitter analyst who said:
“$BTC: Feel this move may be short lived. Rising wedge on multiple time frames including 3hr RSI.”
https://twitter.com/TheCryptomist/status/1163386603538173953 DonAlt also voiced his opinion in the latest cryptocurrency news and spoke about the overnight pump. As he said, he believes the current price region marks a "do or die" level for BTC which could set the tone for which direction it trends in the coming days and weeks.
“$BTC update: Somehow a mixture of well-respected level and chop. The daily and the 4h are at resistance. If those break I’d expect another leg up. It’s a bit of a do or die situation. I very much doubt any supports are going to hold another test,” he explained while referring to the charts below.

Crypto Custodian BitGo Hires Xapo Vice President As New CRO

Published

crypto custodian bitgo
The digital asset trust and security company named BitGo has recently appointed the wallet provider Xapo's former senior vice president as its new chief revenue officer (CRO). The crypto custodian BitGo made the new hire recently, naming the former Xapo official Pete Najarian as its new CRO. The finance media outlet Finance Magnates reported the news on August 19 - which later spread to many best cryptocurrency news sites. According to the reports, Najarian will not serve as BitGo's CRO and will report to the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, Mike Belshe. When commenting on the appointment, the CEO Belshe said:
“Pete has a deep understanding of capital markets and an exceptional breadth of experience in financial services. This makes him a perfect partner for institutional investors who are entering the cryptocurrency market. We’re building the financial infrastructure of the future and Pete’s experience in both traditional financial markets and cryptocurrency will be critical.”
The crypto custodian BitGo is one of the more stable companies out there - and Najarian's knowledge and skill set will definitely help the company. According to his LinkedIn profile, we can see that Pete Najarian has previously served as the global head of emerging markets sales at the Royal Bank of Scotland and has also been head of institutional client coverage - APAC at the financial services firm UBS (as well as other positions). Before this, the latest cryptocurrency news also showed that the crypto custodian BitGo has been expanding its presence to Japan this month - and is planning to substantially grow its Japan-based team. The expansion follows hiring a sales director for the Tokyo office of the firm. In May this year, the crypto custodian BitGo appointed a veteran Wall Street trader named Nick Carmi as its head of financial services - a hire which ostensibly intends to forge stronger connections between digital assets as well as the traditional financial sphere. Meanwhile, the latest Bitcoin and coming altcoin news show that there is a mix of greens and reds in the market, with the reds being more dominant as the crypto market suffered from another dump this Tuesday.
