    Hi Fellas! Cryptocurrency Trading is the Forex (Foreign Exchange) of cryptocurrencies. This means, you are able to trade bitcoin and altcoins normally for USD, GBP and EUR. Cryptocurrency Trading is an alternative way to get involved in the Crypto-World. It doesn’t require mining hardware nor investing in bitcoin hyips or bitcoin cloud mining which is said to have a high level of risk involved. Crypto trading is now seen as a good opportunity to make good money. Many coins quadruple their value in less than a week when a good strategy is implemented. I have been trading it for close to 2 years now and I’ve made about 150K due to the fact that I invested wisely and now my wife have also joined the Crypto-World with me.

Tom Lee: Bitcoin Bull Market Coming Soon

Published

on

Tom Lee, the co-founder of Fundstrat Global has predicted that the price of bitcoin will likely experience a bullish run in the next 5 to 6 months.

Tom Lee, the co-founder of Fundstrat Global also known as the bitcoin bull has predicted that the price of bitcoin will likely experience a bullish run in the next 5 to 6 months. Lee predicted this during an interview with the CNBC. According to Lee, the 200 daily moving average is the number to keep in mind. If bitcoin is able to stay above $4000 till August this year, it will cross the 200 daily moving average and thus technically the overall chart would start to look bullish.

During the interview, he also mentioned that the future of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lies on the fact of whether it becomes an asset class and bitcoin is still in the early days of becoming one. Although Tom Lee has been quite bullish about the price of bitcoin, Fundstrat had recently posted a warning that the cryptocurrency market might crash to a new bottom before actually starting a bull run.

 

Tom Lee on JP Morgan Coin:

In the interview, Lee also expressed his concerns regarding the recently launched JP Morgan Coin which is a stablecoin launched by the banking giant JP Morgan Chase. He said that things such as the JP Morgan Coin and Facebook Coin create use cases for cryptocurrencies and according to him, the JPM Coin is surely not a competitor to bitcoin as it is a stablecoin in nature.

Alert: Bitcoin Breaks Record, Highest Hash Rate Since November 2018.

Published

on

The hash rate of bitcoin which is the power that secures the bitcoin network has recorded the highest level yesterday (19th March) since last year November.  The Bitcoin hash rate passed over fifty-two quintillion hash per second in accordance with the data feed on Blockchain.com.

 

Bitcoin Hash Rate:

Bitcoin hash rate is the computation of the performance of bitcoin miners. In simpler terms, as the hash rate goes higher, the bitcoin network becomes more secure. It becomes more difficult to attack the bitcoin network as an attacker would need increased resources in order to attack the network. The increasing hash rate also depicts the increase in the number of bitcoin miners. As the BTC mining difficulty level is quite stable now, more and more miners are joining the bitcoin network. Although, the increasing hash rate would eventually result in an increase in the overall difficulty level.

The bitcoin network security is at its peak since November last year. The highest hash rate ever recorded has been around 62 quintillion hash per second in August last year. Looking at the current chart, it depicts that the hash rate might even cross this level in the coming time.

 

The increased hash rate also builds up confidence in the minds of the miners as it shows the overall security of the bitcoin network and thus predicting a secure future of the investment of the miners. Thus, overall, more and more miners are now joining the bitcoin mining network after a subsequent decrease last year which led to a lot of miners moving out of the mining business. Bitcoin price analysts believe that the hash rate of the network follows the price of bitcoin as it helps them in speculating the future price of BTC.

 

During last year’s bear market, the hash rate also fell drastically which led to a lot of miners shutting down and the mining equipment were being sold at waste prices. Now as the hash rate is rising, miners are again turning on their mining rigs and moving back to business. It is also worth examining that the current hash rate of the network is even more than the recorded hash rate in December 2017 when the price of BTC went up to $20,000.
