The Crypto Winter
According to last month’s
SFOX Crypto Volatility Report, which was officially released Thursday, March 7, analysts weigh the condition of the cryptocurrency markets based on three metrics, i.e., the continuous advancement of the industry, the sentiment and the price momentum.
The report showed that a weighty number of assistance from eminent people supported prices and revealed that:
“Some of the ‘hype’ that we mentioned was absent from the month of January appeared to resurface in February amidst pro-crypto statements from tech personalities (e.g.,
Elon Musk and
Jack Dorsey) and crypto pundits ‘calling the bottom’ of Crypto Winter.”
Endorsements from eminent individuals are not new to the crypto industry, and one thing that the investors have understood is that propaganda in the digital currency sector possess a substantial bearing on the price trends though they are always temporary, most particularly the thin and illiquid environment facing the bullish cryptos.
Popular individuals who say positive words on various projects are very constructive for a price change though they don’t naturally do anything else. One needs something strong to base on, not a throwaway comment from celebs.
Bitcoin Transactions Reach Highest Point in Over a Year
The report contains some good news. Transactions on the BTC network increased to their peak level in over 13 months.
“There were also more fundamental reasons to have a positive outlook on the market: transactions on the BTC network were at the highest level since January last year.”
The report also highlighted the outlook of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF), SFOX thinks that you might actually be in the minority since there is enough evidence this headline goes on amassing considerable purchasing appetite in the crypto market.
“Even while some factions within the crypto sector question the significance and utility of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund, the market still seems to be fairly responsive to news about its potential: in the two days surrounding this news, the price of Bitcoin surged more than 7%.”
Therefore, a trader shouldn’t dodge such important information, since the market will prove wrong all those who ignored stuff like this.
