eToro Market Update: Mass Adoption Closer Then Ever

Avatar Guest Author 4 weeks ago

Hi Everyone,

Mass adoption of cryptoassets now seems closer than ever. Yesterday, the crypto community was rocked by this news

The funny thing is, now that we have the option to pay our bills with bitcoin, I’m not so sure that I want to. There will only ever be 21 million BTC in the world, so many hodlers out there will be quite hesitant to part with their holdings over something as trivial as a phone bill.

Still, this, along with the recent announcement from Flexa, that bitcoin payments will soon be available at thousands of retail stores across the States, makes the dream of living only off crypto now quite plausible.

Easier to spend means a greater use case and a greater level of adoption. The tipping point is likely very close now.

Traditional Markets

Just as I’m writing to you, it seems the Pound Sterling is reacting to this

The initial reaction was a surge up, but very soon we saw a reversal as the market tries to price in the likelihood of Johnson as leader, as he is considered by some as the most likely to shoot for a no-deal Brexit. Watch the GBP over the next few hours as it remains volatile.

Across the pond in the United States, there’s some political controversy over this

As we know, Trump’s trade war with China has been having an adverse effect on his base. If he does want to win in 2020, he will need to keep the farmers happy. In this case, keeping the farmers happy is clearly coming at the cost of making many others upset.

Financial markets are still keeping their cool for now but many analysts are now on high alert.

Block.one

As the crypto markets consolidate their gains, some crypto companies are doing the same. Block.one, the maker of EOS, has recently offered its shareholders a very handsome share buyback.

Basically, they want to buy back 10% of the shares in the company from the original investors. In 2017 they managed to sell shares to private investors worth $40 million. Today those shares are worth a total of $2.3 billion.

One of Wall Street’s biggest crypto advocates, Mike Novogratz, has recently cashed in on his Block.one investment, earning his firm a cool $71 million. As Novogratz put it.

Much to the chagrin of the average cryptotrader, anybody holding EOS tokens from the time that they launched their main net last June (purple circle), is currently at a loss.

Bitcoin Consolidation

The ascending triangle formation that we’ve been watching is playing out beautifully at the moment. $8,000 per coin is presenting some excellent resistance. The ultimate psychological resistance remains at the recent highs around $8,350.

In this interview with BlockTV, I’ve laid out two possible bullish scenarios, a conservative one and an aggressive one. Here’s a chart that shows them both.

The bullish ascending triangle bullish is further confirmed by the declining volumes. Messari’s real 10 number is reading less than $1 billion for the first time in a while. Volumes on the CME and on the bitcoin blockchain have also pulled back slightly but remain elevated.

The last thing I have for you today is a short video that I found interesting from the crypto friendly investor Mark Yusko. I just found it fascinating how much his views and portfolio reflect my own. Hope you enjoy!
