CNBC’s Ran Neuner sums up the reasons why Bitcoin is “about to explode”

In a recent flurry of confident tweets, CBNC’s Cryptotrader Ran Neuner has summarised why investors should be “accumulating” cryptocurrencies as soon as possible.

In a tweet from last week, CNBC’s Cryptotrader Ran Neuner summarised the more positive news that the cryptocurrency industry had seen.

He followed the summary with an optimistic claim that investors should be accumulating cryptocurrency before the prices spike.

Included in his tweet was the report that Ivy League University Yale had invested in a multi-million dollar cryptocurrency fund. The news is remarkable as the financial strategies are headed up by David Swensen, a notable groundbreaker in institutional investment. Neuner also made note of the Winklevoss twins’ cryptocurrency trade exchange Gemini gaining insurance coverage. When the news broke, the Cryptotrader remarked at the time that it was “huge news”.

Also included in Neuner’s optimistic tweet is the news that retail brokerage firm TD Ameritrade started backing a cryptocurrency exchange in a “strategic investment“. Finally, Neuner added that the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had filed for a rule change for the Bitcoin Exchange-Traded fund decisions (ETF).

With these factors, Neuner has expressed that it is “too obvious” that the cryptocurrency markets are going to swell and he advocates to buy into cryptocurrencies sooner rather than later.

Other cryptocurrency figures have expressed similar optimism, such as Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong, who thinks that the markets are going to see exponential growth.

DOES BITCOIN PRICE NEED TO FALL TO $5000 BEFORE BEAR MARKET IS OVER?

Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange (BitMEX) CEO Arthur Hayes says the Bitcoin price must still drop to $5000 before ending its 2018 bear market.



 

HAYES: ‘I’D LIKE TO SEE US TEST $5000’

In comments which echo other prominent trading figures — such as Tone Vays — Hayes told CNBC yesterday that, despite prices rallying this week, sentiment will fizzle out and Bitcoin will continue falling lower.  “I don’t actually think we’ve seen the worst; I think this is a very strong rally on good volume and we definitely could see $8000 or $9000 and maybe just short of $10,000,” he forecast, continuing:

…I would like to see us test $5000 to really see if we’ve put a bottom in.

Bitcoin generated considerable excitement both inside and beyond the cryptocurrency industry on June 16 when prices gained around 12 percent in one hour — seemingly without prior motive.

While initially skeptical, many commentators have since begun to eye the uptick as the start of a stronger period of growth after months of decline.

SPECTER OF $10K REMAINS

Hayes, however, remains unconvinced about its longevity. “We’ve been here before earlier in the spring; we rallied from about $5800 to the high $9000 level but didn’t quite crack $10,000 – I think similar action will happen this time,” he continued.

Sharing his uncertainty, Vays had previously predicted that BTC/USD must dip below the significant $5000 barrier in order to prime sentiment for beating 2017’s all-time highs.

Beyond the short term, however, the sense of optimism remains broadly unfazed.

Hayes reiterated his faith that prices could top $50,000 by the end of the year after sufficient downside. “I think everybody is taking a little chill time and coe Q3 and Q4 will come back and the party will start again,” he commented about the rest of the year.

While Bitcoin remains around 12 percent up on the start of the week, altcoins meanwhile have yet to catch up, sustaining conspicuous losses in both BTC and USD terms.
