  • BrewDog UK’s Martin Dempster: Bitcoin SV provides clarity
    Businesses want to plan out their future with confidence, and to do that they need to reduce as many variables as possible. BrewDog has chosen to support Bitcoin SV (BSV) for that reason, because of the clear, stable development plan that it’s development team has laid out. Martin Dempster, VP of Innovation for BrewDog UK, joined CoinGeek’s Rebecca Liggero to discuss why they’ve chosen to work with BSV. His excitement for the BSV project is overflowing. “I’m really excited just to continue on this journey about how we can explore and accept cryptocurrencies with BrewDog,” he said. The UK brewery was an early adopter of BSV.

  • CME Bitcoin Futures See Record Volumes, Crucial Signal For Rising Institutional Demand
    This week saw the highest ever volume for Bitcoin futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange as volume exceeded 18,000. The big signal is that institutional investors are paying attention as futures contracts get snapped up at an ever-increasing rate. Record BTC Contract Volumes on CME According to stats from the CME there were 18,338 on Wednesday, the highest figure ever recorded. This is equivalent to 91,690 Bitcoins or roughly $365 million at today’s prices. Source: CME Futures contracts enable speculators to bet on the prices rather than purchasing the physical assets themselves so these figures may be a little misleading. What they do indicate however is that there is a lot more interest in crypto futures now than ever before. When new products that offer physically settled contracts hit the market, they will be paying out in BTC which will ...

  • Another New Survey Suggests Millennials Trust Bitcoin Over the Stock Market
    Another fresh survey has concluded that millennials and younger generations are continually gaining interest in Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrencies while there is a growing distrust towards the post-2008 global financial structure.  According to a new eToro survey of 1000 online traders, 43 percent of millennial online traders place more trust in cryptocurrency exchanges than the United States stock market. On the flip side, the vast majority of Gen X respondents feel the opposite. Millennials that trade crypto unsurprisingly have more trust in the nascent asset class than the stock market, but one-third of millennials that don’t trade cryptocurrencies responded that they also trust crypto over the stock market.

  • Bitcoin (BTC) Price Analysis: Quick Bullish Pullback Done?
    Bitcoin is still hovering around the top of its ascending channel on the 1-hour time frame but looks poised for a break higher. Price encountered stronger volatility in the past 24 hours, possibly completing a quick pullback to the nearby area of interest. Price already seems to have bounced off the middle of the channel and the $4,000 major psychological mark. This could put it on track towards testing the top around the $4,150 level and 50% Fibonacci extension next. Stronger bullish momentum could take it up to the 61.8% level at $4,200 or the 78.6% level closer to the $4,300 mark. The full extension is located at $4,392.4. The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA to confirm that the path of least resistance is to the upside. In other words, the uptrend is more likely to gain ...

  • Elon Musk Assures He Only Owns 0.25 Bitcoin (BTC) After Lauding Crypto
    Tesla CEO Musk Only Owns 0.25 Bitcoin (BTC) Last February, near the peak of the previous crypto bull run, Elon Musk took to Twitter to get his spot on the hype train. But his comment wasn’t what many were expecting. The Tesla chief executive and long-time technology guru noted that he “literally owns zero cryptocurrency,” save for 0.25 Bitcoin (BTC) that an unnamed friend sent him “many years ago.” At the time he issued that tweet, BTC was trading for $2,500, meaning that his crypto holdings were effectively nothing compared to his entire net worth. Just one year later, the South African entrepreneur took to Twitter again to divulge a bit more about his personal finances, well in terms of crypto anyway.

From its $20,000 peak in late-2017, the preeminent cryptocurrency has fallen by over 80%, as sell-side pressure rocked the market over recent months. This has led many common Joes and Jills, especially those with ties to mainstream media, to claim that BTC has finally bitten the dust after a decade-long run.

However, according to one crypto analyst, Bitcoin is still in a “ongoing bull market” and that the leading crypto by market cap is in nothing more than a correction, and that investors should accumulate at current prices.

  • Analyst: Buying Next Bitcoin (BTC) Pullback Could Lead to 30% Gains
    Following its recent surge, Bitcoin has now found itself caught under $4,000, despite finding stability in the $3,900 region. Analysts are now claiming that BTC’s trading volume will likely be the best indicator as to if the cryptocurrency has enough buying pressure to propel its price above the important psychological price level of $4,000. Analysts also believe that Bitcoin may need to drop slightly before finding enough buying pressure in order for it to continue its upwards ascent, and that traders who buy this pullback could incur 30% gains in a relatively short period of time. Bitcoin (BTC) Struggles to Push Above $4,000 At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down nearly 1% at its current price of $3,940.
