Bull run market prediction shows that the number one cryptocurrency could reach up to $21K this year despite the 2018 bear market that crushed the prices by more than 80 percent. The recent market surge increased the optimism and it seems like the best days for bitcoin are yet to come so let’s find out more in the coming altcoin news below.
The optimism is being driven by many important milestones that happened since the start of this year. First, the bitcoin price reached its best value so far for this year, crossing the $11,000 price point over the weekend. The latest price surge helped the major cryptocurrency to achieve a 15-month price high since the coin hasn’t traded over $11,000 since last spring. Also, the cryptocurrency gained more than 160 percent in Q2 this year which marks the best quarter for digital gold since bitcoin jumped up to 230 percent in Q4 back in 2017. This was when the coin hit the all-time-high of $20,000. With a major market cap of over $195 billion, Bitcoin has received some steam after having entered this year’s second quarter over the $4,000 mark.
The bull run market prediction comes even after 2013’s bitcoin stretch when the cryptocurrency spiked by more than 600 percent. The difference between that year and today is that the current bitcoin run-up comes after many pundits stated that the cryptocurrency would never see a five-digit price point ever again. Now, Bitcoin is only down by 45 percent since the previous $20,000 and over the weekend surge means that the asset is presenting with up to 83 percent on the year and 1,580 percent over the last five years.
The interest following around Bitcoin increase since Google searches for the cryptocurrency is on the rise. This comes as no surprise since the major social media giant Facebook announced their Libra crypto project last week which brought up to serious attention to BTC.
As noted in the latest cryptocurrency news, the cryptoanalyst Trace Mayer thinks that it is possible for Bitcoin’s price to eclipse the previous all-time high before 2019 ends and to reach up to $21K. Of course, the future is unpredictable so there is no certainty but analysts such as Mayer used the data to make their best bets.
Fiat Money Is Used 800 Times More Than Bitcoin To Launder Money
“Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin have been exploited to support billions of dollars of illicit activity like cybercrime, tax evasion, extortion, ransomware, illicit drugs, and human trafficking. Many players have attempted to use cryptocurrencies to fund their malignant behavior. This is indeed a national security issue.”The results of the Messari research show the same thing that Europol already concluded in their report ‘’Why Cash Is Still King?’’ where they talk about fiat money is the number one tool used in crimes. In the reports they also describe how criminals still use fiat money in their operations rather than bitcoin and cryptocurrencies:
“Although not all use of cash is criminal, all criminals use cash at some stage in the money laundering process … While the world is looking with concern at the possible misuse of virtual currencies by criminals, this report may seem somewhat unusual in that it is not highlighting a new phenomenon or an emerging risk…money laundering schemes detected by law enforcement are still largely characterized by traditional techniques, in particular, the use of cash.”As noted in some of the best cryptocurrency sites and reports, bitcoin is still considered as stable rather than fiat money since in the last decade the FED increased the currency supply by more than 12.664% which is more than Bitcoin did.
Big BTC Price Boom Will Bring To Consolidation: Market Experts
“If BTC goes to $100, it is game over. It won’t. It’s already established itself as a store of value. Stop wasting your time with these tweets and go outside and enjoy the summer. BTC is consolidating before its next move higher.’’The crypto technical analyst Josh Rager indicated that from a technical perspective, Bitcoin has still not broken out of the $10,850 resistance level:
“Daily time frame resistance did its job & price closed under after that $400+ wick It’s always good to wait for a retest to make sure a broken resistance holds as support & this is a clear example Neutral at the moment & still in range.’’The big BTC price boom is expected to bring the price above the $11,000 level and it is expected to start a consolidation phase. The traders indicated that the $10,850 resistance level should be breached in order to confirm a bullish trend:
“10.4 met. No violent reaction, no rejection – BTC looking decent. Let’s see reaction at this next resistance. Punch and close above $10,850 and things start looking substantially bullish.’’As it was explained in the analysis in the best cryptocurrency news sites, Bitcoin was not able to reclaim the $10,850 position despite the action which led the cryptocurrency to surpass the $11,000 on July 20. As the price slumped, precious metals such as gold and silver are having the best times of their lives. However, according to Equity Armor Investments executive Brian Stutland, says that crypto assets will appeal to investors if the interest rates fall.

Bakkt BTC Futures Reached “Critical Mass” And Expected To Launch Soon
"We think #Bakkt could be a huge catalyst for institutional participation in the #crypto market. Here are our takeaways from the Bakkt institutional summit yesterday at the NYSE… #bitcoin #BTC #ETH," one of the tweets which went viral on many best cryptocurrency news sites reads.As per analysis from Sam Doctor of Fundstrat, institutions and other entities in attendance were not only bullish on Bakkt but the broader Bitcoin and cryptocurrency market, too. In a recent Fundstrat research note to Twitter, Doctor explained that his first-hand experience of the event slated to be the first US regulated vehicle of its sort that is physically delivered. He pointed out to the Bakkt BTC futures, saying:
“As we have written before, Bakkt tackles many of the barriers to adoption for traditional investors seeking to expand their mandate to include crypto.”He also went on to write that there “appears to be a critical mass of adopters ready to come on board on Day 1 of the Bakkt launch,” noting that the firm's sales team is starting to ramp up discussions with everyone from brokers and market makers. The news comes hot on the heels for Bakkt BTC futures. Earlier this year, the company made a series of hire as their "Careers" page noted. One job listing called for a mobile app developer which sparked a further discussion about Bakkt's plans post-Bitcoin futures. An excerpt from Bakkt.com reads:
“Whether between consumers and merchants or peers, the ability to conduct transactions in digital assets holds promise as a these new global currencies evolve beyond a store of value or speculative assets, and as distributed ledger technology scales. Bakkt is working with leading merchants who recognize the potential of digital assets.”Earlier reports have suggested that Starbucks may be one of the users of Bakkt's eventual payments solution which is most likely to involve Bitcoin. Currently, the Bitcoin and altcoin news show stability on the market after the wide breakout.
