Bitcoin halving is exactly 365 days away BTC to 55000?

Bitcoin halving is exactly 365 days away, BTC to $55,000?

Bitcoin halving is exactly 365 days away, BTC to $55,000?

Hardware wallet manufacturer, Trezor, took to Twitter to point out that in exactly 365 days we will experience the much-anticipated third Bitcoin halving in history.

Twitter has been buzzing, and it is all about Bitcoin’s third halving, which according to hardware wallet manufacturer Trezor, will take place in exactly 365 days.

In case you are wondering, this means that the number of Bitcoin issued per each block, mined every ten minutes, will fall from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC. In other words, this reduction of 50% will cut the block reward given to miners in half and further slow the production of Bitcoin’s finite supply.

Approximately by May 2020, as it is an estimate based on current hash power, the number of BTC issued per day will be reduced from 1,800 to 900 and as these halving events always had a positive impact on the price of Bitcoin in the past, many analysts are now convinced that the increased scarcity will once again spark yet another parabolic rally.

One such leading crypto analyst, known in the industry as Plan B, took to Twitter at the end of March, to share his latest prediction model that indicates Bitcoin will hit $55,000 due to Bitcoin's coming halving in 2020.

The crypto researcher, shared his analyzes which shows the potential impact of Bitcoin’s coming halving.

According to the crypto trader, people ask him all the time where the money would come from.

'People ask me where all the money needed for $1trn bitcoin market value would come from? My answer: silver, gold, countries with negative interest rate (Europe, Japan, US soon), countries with predatory governments (Venezuela, China, Iran, Turkey etc), billionaires and millionaires hedging against quantitative easing (QE), and institutional investors discovering the best performing asset of last 10 yrs.'

Although a spectacular prediction, the crypto trader added that time will be the judge on his prediction, and that 'we will probably know one or two years after the halving, in 2020 or 2021'.

Just today Chepicap reported that Brian Kelly explained on CNBC's Fast Money, why he feels the price of Bitcoin is on the rise, and made an overall bullish case, where he points out how institutional investors are coming into the space, retail applications are beginning to be rolled out and that we are about a year away from the next halving event.

Bitcoin Price Prediction – Good Crypto Market Entry Time for Investors to Buy BTC with USD?

Bitcoin Price Prediction -  Good Crypto Market Entry Time for Investors to Buy BTC with USD?

Bitcoin Price Prediction – Good Crypto Market Entry Time for Investors to Buy BTC with USD?

The cryptocurrency market started on week 21 of the year 2019 with a sharp correction in its prices, as many had expected, after high peaks of the year in all the protagonists of the ecosystem. At the time of writing a large red tide is dyed on the green sea that prevailed in the main crypts of the top 10 of the market.

The market has returned to levels of $ 240 billion and Bitcoin has lost control when it went down to 56.9%, after being at 60% a couple of days ago.

At the time of writing its spot price for trading in the BTC/USD pair it is $ 7,937.83 USD, with a contraction of -2.16% in the last 24 hours. Its volume has fallen from levels close to 23 trillion dollars, almost 50% less than what was moving a couple of days ago. Earlier today it was down around $7,749 after testing $8,250 over the weekend again.

A strong sale of assets in BitMex for almost $200 million and the possible delay in the decision of VanEck ETFs, have led to a retreat of nervous investors, while the big ‘whales' wait in the rear with massive orders of the purchase at lower prices of the cryptocurrency.

BitMex's XBT / USDT pair continues to dominate the scene with 16.24% contribution to the cryptocurrency market with its BTC derivative products and is the main indicator of the price, well above BW.com and Coinall, which follow it very closely away with 2.57% and 2.23% respectively.

In the short term, BTC price presents an interesting scenario for this current week. His upward trajectory projects us a sharp change in his current level to close levels @ $7100 to then resurface in a bullish race back to the @ $8000.

In short, we would be talking about a winning position for those who manage to enter on time, up to 15% profit.

The support is maintained in the moving average of prices for 100 days, which if broken could ensure compliance with the respective wave.

MACD has made a bearish cross, with red bars in the negative direction gaining position, indicating the path that BTC will follow in the coming days.

The Momentum indicator, on the other hand, has entered the descent zone but maintains a soft, almost horizontal slope that indicates that the fall of a prolonged bear market is not yet feasible in the cryptocurrency.
In the medium term, the cryptocurrency is totally bullish. His parable projected even though it was broken this weekend, it seems that we are in the presence of a new similar and bullish projection. The price levels are projected between support below the 7k line and a maximum resistance close to 10k. A difference of almost 30 percent is enough for a crypto asset for everything it represents.

The 30-day EMA indicator is medium-term support, which is still far from being beaten.

RSI for its part has not left the purchase zone and maintains a bullish position in the area to the rear to return to overbought levels when the bulls take control of the market again.

Aroon Uptrend has begun to descend but without force, and its counterpart still shows no signs of recovery, so the bullish moment still lasts in the medium term for the main cryptocurrency.

In general BTC and the crypto market are giving signals to those who did not have a clear picture of when to take positions in the main crypto markets. Decisions such as the ETF underway to be approved or rejected by VanEck, which expires this Tuesday, May 21, may mean the start of a bullish or bearish rally for BTC in the coming weeks.

Bitcoin price analysis: – BTC is back below 8000 amid mounting selling pressure

Bitcoin price analysis: - BTC is back below $8,000 amid mounting selling pressure

Bitcoin price analysis: – BTC is back below $8,000 amid mounting selling pressure

  • The resistance at $8,300 has stopped the recovery.

  • The short-term sellers pushed Bitcoin back below critical $8,000.

BTC/USD is hovering below $8,000 after an initial attempt to settle above $8,300 during early Asian hours. The first digital coin as lost over 3% of its value since the beginning of the day, though it is still in the green zone on a day-on-day basis. At this stage, the recovery from the recent lows has stalled, but the coin is still moving within the long-term bullish trend with 4.5% of gains on a day-on-day basis.

Bitcoin's technical picture

On the intraday charts, Bitcoin's recovery is capped by the psychological $8,300. This resistance area is strengthened with the upper boundary of 4-hour Bollinger Band (currently at $8,276) and the intraday high of $8,304. Once it is cleared, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on the previous week high of $8,384 followed by the upper boundary of the daily Bollinger Band at $8,770.

On the downside, the local support is seen at $7,800 handle with the intraday low marginally above this level. A sustainable move lower will trigger more sell-off with the next aim at $7,650 with SMA50 4-hour on approach and a confluence of SMA100 and SMA200 (1-hour) right below this handle.

Do you Believe in Market Hive

Do you believe in Markethive, if so now is the time to take action. The price of bitcoin is high at the moment, which means you can agree to loan Markethive money for less bitcoin than ever (ILP).

Markethive ILP’s are nominated in $, so if you have just a small amount of Bitcoin 0.12571 you can sign up for $1,000 ILP. You can also use BCH, ETH,XMR or ZEC.

Remember you loan is secured with a corresponding amount of or own coin MVH, so in fact your investment is changing bitcoin for another cryptocurrency. Additionally, as Markethive starts to earn money as it grows you will start receiving a regular income from profits.

I have already used 50% of my bitcoin holding to set up an ILP, because I believe the future of the company is bright and I have nothing to lose.

Impressive Resilient Bitcoin Price Moves Higher as Crypto Stars Align

Impressive! Resilient Bitcoin Price Moves Higher as Crypto Stars Align

The bitcoin price stumbled toward the end of the week but it looks like the bulls have gotten it together. BTC is now moving higher by nearly 7% to approximately $7,800 at last check on CoinMarketCap. The price had fallen as low as approximately $7,000 on Friday, and some traders have been calling for the bottom to fall out. It seems as though that won’t happen, at least not today.

Even though the sudden reversal came suddenly and seemingly disrupted some weekend plans, nobody on Crypto Twitter was complaining.

BOE OFFICIAL SUGGESTS BITCOIN COULD REPLACE CASH

There is a thread making the rounds on Reddit about a UK central banker coming to terms with the rise of bitcoin. According to the Reddit thread, Bank of England Chief Economist Andrew G. Haldane spoke to college students on May 17 and the topic of bitcoin came up. He was refreshingly open-minded. The Reddit member explained:
 

“One person asked what he thought of cryptocurrency and his response surprised me. He said it could replace cash; he even joked about us likely having bitcoin in our wallets. He said he didn’t think it’d replace cash tomorrow, but he was quite open to the idea 20 or 30 years down the line. He was also quite familiar with cryptocurrencies and joked that there were now thousands of them.”
 

It’s no secret that digital payments are usurping cash. But for the BOE official to recognize bitcoin as the digital currency that will eventually replace cash – even if it’s in two or three decades – is a strong display of confidence in the peer-to-peer currency. Even the cryptocurrency ecosystem knows that it is a marathon and not a sprint, so Haldane’s forecast probably resonated with many people. Some industry leaders such as BitMEX’s Arthur Hayes has previously suggested that bitcoin could replace cash a lot faster than that. But the fact that a central banker and the CEO of a bitcoin exchange are in the conversation is certainly a bullish sign for bitcoin.

Bitcoin BTC Price Near Inflection Point – Fresh Increase Likely

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Near Inflection Point -  Fresh Increase Likely

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Near Inflection Point – Fresh Increase Likely

 

  • Bitcoin price declined heavily yesterday and traded close to the $6,650 support against the US Dollar.

  • The price traded as low as $6,645 and it is currently recovering towards the $7,400 level.

  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $7,400 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).

  • The pair needs to clear the $7,400 and $7,512 resistance levels to start a strong upward move.

Bitcoin price seems to be forming a new support base above $7,000 against the US Dollar. BTC is likely forming a decent bottom and it could climb higher above $7,400 and $7,500.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a significant downside correction in bitcoin price below the $8,000 and $7,500 supports against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair declined heavily and even broke the $7,000 support and 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a spike towards the $6,650 support area, where buyers emerged. A swing low was formed at $6,645 and the price recently started an upside correction. It traded above the $7,000 and $7,050 resistance levels. Besides, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,050 swing high to $6,645 low.

At the moment, the price is trading above $7,200, but it is facing a strong resistance near $7,400. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $7,400 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Moreover, the price is struggling near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,050 swing high to $6,645 low. If there is a proper break above the trend line and $7,420, the price could trade further higher.

An important hurdle is near the $7,512 level and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,050 swing high to $6,645 low. A successful follow through above $7,512 is likely to set the pace for more gains in the near term. The next key resistances are near the $7,720 and $7,800 levels. On the downside, an initial support is near the $7,200 level. If there are further declines, the price could retest the $7,000 support.

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is currently trading with a positive bias above the $7,000 support. Therefore, there are high chances of a fresh increase above the $7,400 and $7,500 levels. Only a close below $7,000 could increase bearish pressure in the near term.

 

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is back in the bullish zone, with a positive bias.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is moving higher and is currently above the 50 level.

Major Support Levels – $7,200 followed by $7,000.

Major Resistance Levels – $7,400, $7,512 and $7,720.

Bitcoin Price Rally Targets Between 12K and 22K Based on BitMEX History

Bitcoin Price Rally Targets Between $12K and $22K Based on BitMEX History

Bitcoin Price Rally Targets Between $12K and $22K Based on BitMEX History

The 2019 Bitcoin disbelief rally has recaptured some of the public frenzy and media attention experienced at the height of the last bull run, despite the next bull run barely beginning. The powerfully bullish momentum has crypto investors and analysts reviewing price charts hoping to figure out where the rally might end.

One particular swing trader believes that by analyzing historic price action on BitMEX, the targets for the parabolic Bitcoin rally can be predicted. The two “take profit” targets the trader has come up with, are $12K and $22K.

BitMEX Price Action Helps Trader Identify Take Profit Targets on Bitcoin Rally

Throughout the bear market, BitMEX became a clear market leader as one of the few cryptocurrency exchanges offering short-selling and leverage, allowing crypto investors to profit from the falling prices of cryptocurrencies across the board.

Because so much price action occurred at the Seychelles-based trading platform, traders and analysts often look to BitMEX price charts to get an accurate read on the market’s next movements.

According to former CME Group trading-competition winner Eric Choe, the take profit targets for Bitcoin price during the current rally, is between $12,600 and $15,100. The two prices would put Bitcoin price between the 0.5 and 0.618 Fibonacci extension. The second take profit level, the self-proclaimed swing trader says, is at $22,600 – a price that would set a new all-time high for the leading cryptocurrency by market cap.

With a bull market all but confirmed, most crypto traders have switched into “buy the dip” mode. Choe says that the ideal zone to buy dips is between $5,200 and $6,300 where there is a significant volume confluence located.

But Will Bitcoin Even Dip With This Much FOMO in Crypto Markets?

This much FOMO has not been witnessed in the crypto market since the height of the crypto hype bubble in late 2017. The recent spike in Bitcoin has reignited interest across the board, from retail investors to institutions looking to gain their first exposure to the emerging asset class.

Such buying pressure has not allowed Bitcoin to fall more than 8% since the early April rally first began. Bitcoin was also able to stay strong in the face of last month’s accusations from the New York AG’s office made against Bitfinex, and a hack of Binance – among the crypto exchanges with the most trading volume.

It’s FOMO that creates the sharp parabolic climbs that Bitcoin has become accustomed to. It’s also FOMO that has helped the digital currency reach its all-time high in the past. Should Bitcoin break above

Bitcoin Bulls Unleashed as Crypto Begins Trading on Good News

Bitcoin Bulls Unleashed as Crypto Begins Trading on Good News

Bitcoin Bulls Unleashed as Crypto Begins Trading on Good News

Another day, another new high for the bitcoin price. Bitcoin is currently trading at nearly $8,300, which according to CoinMarketCap data is a new 2019 high for the biggest cryptocurrency. On Coinbase, the BTC price already attained $8,300 though it has pulled back slightly. While it’s not the first time that the bitcoin price has surpassed this level historically, the market has stronger fundamentals fueling the gains this time around.

The excitement in the crypto community is palpable. Gemini Co-Founder Tyler Winklevoss noted that “breaking 8k this time feels a lot different than the last time.”

t

Trader and analyst Luke Martin noted that bitcoin reaching new highs “never gets old.”

FINALLY! BITCOIN PRICE IS TRADING ON GOOD NEWS

One of the frustrating themes of 2018 was that the BTC price ignored signs that the industry was becoming stronger as developers kept “buidling.” 2019 is a completely different story. Now that bitcoin is barreling toward $10,000, Fundstrat’s Tom Lee suggested that it is more likely to capture the attention of traditional investors outside of the crypto space. He told CNBC:

“That’s really important because bringing in that new interest into managed crypto can really push bitcoin to its all-time high.”

NO SHORTAGE OF CATALYSTS

There are plenty of reasons for the bitcoin bulls to be out in full force. As Fundstrat’s Lee told CNBC, the BTC price has been rising steadily since November 2018. But in recent weeks, the gains have become “more parabolic” in nature. The stars have aligned for the bitcoin price for several reasons, not the least of which involves geopolitical tensions unfolding between the U.S. and China. Not only have these conditions made bitcoin look better than ever to investors because of its uncorrelated nature to stocks, but bitcoin has become the “safe haven” investment, according to Morgan Creek Digital Co-Founder Anthony Pompliano. He tweeted:

“JPMorgan is telling people that the trade war between the U.S. and China could boost safe-haven currencies. Bitcoin is the best safe haven currency in the world. Nervous about global chaos? Buy the strongest non-sovereign currency.”

There’s no shortage of catalysts, really. Regulated BTC futures exchange Bakkt has provided greater clarity on its imminent launch, which will likely unlock institutional capital from the sidelines. And crypto exchange Gemini has thrust bitcoin into the spotlight by making it possible for thousands of merchants to accept the cryptocurrency as a form of payment. While investors may be grappling with sell in May and going away in the stock market, bitcoin it seems is just getting started.

Bitcoin is Hitting 10000 Before the Week Ends Plus Four Possible Reasons For Recent BTC Price Surge

Bitcoin is Hitting $10,000 Before the Week Ends Plus Four Possible Reasons For Recent BTC Price Surge

Bitcoin is Hitting $10,000 Before the Week Ends Plus Four Possible Reasons For Recent BTC Price Surge

The price of Bitcoin has been a hot topic lately, rising from under $4,000 to over $8,000 in a matter 5 weeks and has already posted its best monthly value gains since its epic November 2017 run. Let's take a look at why a recent twitter poll puts BTC/USD exchange rate value at $10,000 within 4 days and go over four plausible reasons as to why Bitcoin is finally shaking free of its 17 month bear market slumber and hibernation.

  • Bull Season 99% – Crypto analyst

  • Only a 23% to 38% retracement expected – Crypto trader

  • “Pay me in Bitcoin” – Russell Okung, American football offensive tackle (OT) for the Los Angeles Chargers

  • Last 24-hours further making a bullish case for Bitcoin

Bitcoin is not showing any sign of stopping. It keeps on climbing and the price of BTC has now reached $8,142 level with 24-hours gains of over 12 percent.

Given the speed at which BTC/USD is surging, before we hit the weekend, the flagship cryptocurrency is going to smash through $10,000. However, it’s not just the ongoing trajectory, bitcoin has a number of factors that would take it to the 14-months high level.

Recently, economist and crypto trader, Alex Kruger conducted a poll on Twitter about when we are hitting $10,000? Well, it’s a tie!

Out of the total 2,216 votes cast, the majority of the votes that is by 31%, BTC is reaching $10k in 4 days. Meanwhile, 31% also don't see BTC going for $10k before September. A huge percentage of people, 27% also believe it is coming in 4 weeks.

Bull Season 99%

Crypto analyst Willy Woo, took to Twitter to share that it is the bull season. Talking about the 200-day moving average, Woo says in Bitcoin’s entire 10-year trade history, whenever BTC has crossed above this line for any “sizeable time” for instance eight weeks, it has signaled the bull season.

“Even a super conservative trend line support puts us above the 200 DMA. Bull season is now 99%,”

says Woo.

As for the 1 percent, Woo says they are now awaiting the on-chain volume to climb as it is proxy to longer-term investor activity. Once it does, it will be 100% confirmation of a bull run. This confirmation will come after the price pulls back from the current exponential climb as investors BTFD.

As for this retracement, 23% to 38% is expected which is the spot to buy the dip and after that, straight to the moon.

Meanwhile, all eyes are on the top of Bitcoin from where this retracement will start. However, it is hard to say where exactly Bitcoin will stop as it has been on a tear for the entire May so far.

It seems like that we would get to see $10,000, given the way the news of Bitcoin mainstream adoption, institutions going crazy with trading Bitcoin as evident from record CME BTC futures volume and breaking the resistance of $8k have started this week.

4 Possible Reasons for Bitcoin’s Weekend Price Increase

Bitcoin reached over $8,000 over the weekend and there may be five factors that have influenced this price boost.

The first is front running institutions. For instance, Fidelity announced that it will offering Bitcoin trading in a few weeks’ time. Fidelity manages around $2.4 trillion in assets, thus its proposal to begin bitcoin trading could provide a significant amount of exposure.

The second is coordinated buying by whales. This could be apparent by looking at trading volume and price action.

The third is stock to flow value of the next halving. PlanB’s tweeted and continued, “Although this is not my S2F model but a Time model, this chart seems to suggest that we will see red within a couple of months … which is much earlier than I expect (ATH after May 2020 halving) …”

The fourth possible reason is an epic short squeeze. Bitcoin’s increase in volume through a resistance to reach approximately $7,500 is an example of a short squeeze.

And finally, it is also possible that these reasons did not contribute at all. But at least according to the recent crypto twitter community survey, Bitcoin's price will see $10,000 USD within the next 4 days .. as hopeful as some might be for this to be reality, the last time the price of BTC was at $10,000 was March 6, 2018, a mere 434 days ago. #TimeWillTell

Bitcoin’s price is $8,012.40 BTC/USD exchange rate today. The real-time BTC market cap of $141.83 Billion currently ranks #1 with a chart dominance at 58.12%, daily trading volume of $9.96 Billion and live coin value change of BTC 0.50% in the last 24 hours.

Bitcoin tops 8000 as it hits highest since July 2018

Bitcoin tops $8,000 as it hits highest since July 2018

There is no real fundamental explanation as to why bitcoin, the original cryptocurrency, hit a 10-month high on Monday.

Bitcoin surged to more than $8,000 late on Monday, its highest level since July last year, as the cryptocurrency's rally gained further momentum.

There is no real fundamental explanation as to why bitcoin, the original cryptocurrency, hit a 10-month high on Monday.

But there is an ongoing blockchain and cryptocurrency conference in New York called Consensus, with big investors and influential market players gathered to network and discuss the current state of the industry. Bitcoin had also rallied during previous Consensus conferences.

Bitcoin was last up nearly 17 percent at $8,131 on the Bitstamp exchange, the largest daily percentage jump since early April. It hit a high of $8,167.50, a roughly 10-month peak.

Some analysts pointed out that bitcoin's rally coincided with the escalating trade war between the United States and China, which eroded overall market risk sentiment. But it is too soon to declare bitcoin as a safe-haven asset, they said.

David Thomas, of London-based cryptocurrency broker GlobalBlock, said the breaching of a key $6,000 support level last week fuelled interest among investors.

In addition, Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said the bullish "golden cross" is already in play on the daily charts. This occurs when the 50-day simple moving average has crossed above the 200-day moving average.

Other market participants said perceptions of bitcoin's resilience in the wake of last week's $40 million theft from the major Binance exchange was supporting sentiment. Cryptocurrency markets have previously fallen after high-profile security breaches.

Bitcoin has almost doubled in price this year, underscoring its volatility after a bruising 2018. Last year it lost some three-quarters of its value amid tighter regulation across the world.

But so far on the year, bitcoin has been up a sparking 119 percent.
