Federal Reserve Bank of St.Louis explains the three likely possibilities of the future of bitcoin. an indefinite increase, zero or somewhere in between.

A blog published by the Federal Reserve Bank of St.Louis explains the three likely possibilities of the future of bitcoin. These are

  • indefinite increase in value,
  • zero

or

  • somewhere in between

According to the bank, they believe that bitcoin will be somewhere in between. According to the writers, the major element that is bringing down the price of bitcoin is the increasing supply of altcoins or bitcoin alternatives. The bitcoin market is quite volatile and the demand for bitcoin is the only reason for the price increase and decrease and not the fixed supply. If there were no alternatives to bitcoin or if there were no altcoins then probably all the money currently in the cryptocurrency market would have been invested in bitcoin solely.

According to the economists are the Federal Reserve, if a restaurant sells meals for $10 that is equal to one Hamilton bill ($10) or two Lincoln bills ($5+$5). If the supply of Lincoln bills is increased, that would not change the current scenario of the ratio of 2:1 between the two bills.

 

What’s the real value of bitcoin?

The price of bitcoin and other altcoins is still undiscoverable. According to some analysts, bitcoin price increased massively due to the hype created in 2017 which also increased the price of other bitcoin alternatives or altcoins while others believe that it was just a coincidence. The use case of bitcoin is one of the prominent reasons for the mass adoption and the price increase. Institutional investors are still in their early phases of investing in bitcoin and altcoins. The increase in the institutional interest will thrive the price of bitcoin in the future. With the adoption rising with things like the BAKKT exchange, NASDAQ bitcoin futures and bitcoin ETFs being launched, this would eventually increase the demand for bitcoin and in due course of time, the price of bitcoin is likely to experience a bullish momentum.

The Initial Public Offering application of Bitmain is set to expire today i.e. 26th March 2019, which explains that the company is no longer going public.

The Initial Public Offering application of Bitmain is set to expire today i.e. 26th March 2019, which explains that the company is no longer going public. However, this does not mean that the company might never go public as they claim that they will work on the application of Initial Public Offering at the right time.

 

Bitmain IPO: Not happening anymore

The rumors were all around the cryptocurrency space that Bitmain is going to go public by holding an initial public offering on the Hong Kong stock exchange soon. But it seems that the dreams have just been broken as the mining giant is no longer holding an IPO as reported by the South China Morning Post. The large monetary losses that the company has been facing and the firing of employees might be the reason for making a U-turn.

 

IPO Plans:

The initial public offering was announced by Bitmain last year. Jihan Wu, one of the youngest billionaires in the world and the CEO of Bitmain had earlier stated that they were open to list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange or an overseas exchange. Soon after this, Bitmain has acquired 16-floor official premises in the Silicon Valley from where the rumors started to spread that the company is going to launch an Initial Public Offering in the United States. During this period, Bitmain was leading the bitcoin mining industry by controlling more than 80% of the market. It was being predicted that the value of the company would rise to $40 billion after the Initial Public Offering is held.

 

The rumors started to cool down as reports were out stating that the company was facing financial losses due to the falling prices and the market capitalization of cryptocurrencies. In just Q3 last year, Bitmain had lost over $500 million which is a piece of terrible news for a brand that is going to launch an Initial Public Offering soon. It got worse for the company when the head Jihan Wu left the company for starting his own project.
