Bitcoin is the origin of cryptocurrency. It’s about to have one of its biggest Fall sessions.
Bitcoin has broken the $50,000 ceiling, and continues to gain popularity all around the world. Bitcoin’s price rose after Nigerian inflation didn’t affect its value. This helped citizens find an alternative source to their money. It is becoming more popular in China and Russia to use Bitcoin. With Bitcoin, you can purchase almost everything in Japan. That includes food and clothing as well as electronics, cars, houses and pets. El Salvador will officially recognize Bitcoin as legal tender. This will allow residents to buy it with no risk, since it is not subject to confiscation or seizure from the government. This means that Bitcoin’s bull run is going to end. What will the bear market look like?
1. Bitcoin breaks the $50K barrier
Bitcoin has crossed the $50K threshold thanks to strong bull runs by investors trying to push Bitcoin high ahead of the $600M option expiry next Tuesday. Bitcoin has had some difficulties lately with fluctuations, but the bull run from investors to push it higher for the $600M option expiry next week saw it rise by $4,000.
But what does breaking that ceiling actually mean for BTC long-term? That milestone adds another notch to Bitcoin’s belt. Bitcoin is money with muscle in a market, socio-economic system that wants it dead. Although we expect a bearish trend to occur soon, investors will have an opportunity to buy Bitcoin at lower prices and strengthen the embattled coin.
Bitcoin is proud to reach the $50K milestone. It will also need consumer confidence with the future challenges. Crypto is not easy to accept for most people but it is considered a pariah by the West. But, there is hope if you stand strong and take control over your financial freedom.
2. Bitcoin’s monthly options end
August’s options expiry was a baby, compared with last month’s $1.6B. However, the expiries come at a time of COVID revival and could pose a problem for BTC. Wallstreet elites and their political allies can’t keep traditional markets on Life-support forever, which also impacts Bitcoin. This could lead to one of its worst attacks.
BTC has some bright spots that could help stabilize the currency in times of turmoil in America (discussed further below). We can expect a robust bear run after the expiry and a clean September to allow us another strong expiry like we had in July. However, this depends on other geopolitical conditions.
The expiry of the monthly options isn’t an isolated event. Therefore, the monthly part. But it’s not about the timing. There are many financial convergences that will impact the Fall 2021, but one could have major implications for Bitcoin.
3. The coming bear market
The financial illiterate should be worried about bear markets. But, there are also reasons to be concerned for those who are “in the know”. Winter is upon us, and the financial army that has gone mad will not be kind to traditional markets. What do you think will become of Bitcoin? This could be a time to celebrate or it could be a time to despair. This Fall, I don’t see any middle ground in Bitcoin.
If you want to make more money than just banking, you have to take risks. It’s all risky investing in stocks, commodities, and crypto. Your ship must be steady. Financial waves can cause havoc on the hull. But a skilled shipwright will keep the boat afloat. Even though it is difficult, it’s just anxiety. Like waves, the bulls and bears change. Be strong and educated.
4. El Salvador
In the fall 2021, El Salvador is expected to legalize BTC as legal cryptocurrency. Their economy is in trouble, so Bitcoin may be their saving grace. BTC is available on the El Salvadorian Stock Exchange. Small businesses can use crypto for transactions.
Russa and Bitcoin have a turbulent history. Russia banned Bitcoin’s use in financial transactions and trading as an official currency in 2018. In the fall 2021 , however, the Russian government opened up to Bitcoin and other crypto currencies with plans for mining regulations and tax exemptions on crypto-tocrypto revenue.
Despite volatility in Russia’s relationship, Russia is still a significant Bitcoin marketplace. If relations improve, Russia can be one of Bitcoin’s most trusted allies.
Japan is Bitcoin’s second-largest country, and already has a legal framework. The April 2017 legalization of Bitcoin by the government means that exchanges could legally operate without fear of being reprimanded by the FSA, or Financial Services Agency.
This is good news for Bitcoin. Japan could be the right ally that BTC needs right at this moment: A strong Bitcoin market. Japan is the country that Japan can be a strong ally in Asia. This year the government also legalized Bitcoin payments for BtoC (Business-To-Consumer) and BtoB (Business-To-Business).
The legitimization and acceptance of Bitcoin as a payment method is a major step towards mainstream adoption.
Nigeria’s economy experienced a boom during recent times, but then began to decline at the start In the fall 2021. In February, the government stopped cryptocurrency banks from operating. To restrict crypto’s use, the government also closed exchanges. But it didn’t work. Citizens turned to peer-to–peer transactions to weather the 18% inflation spike.
It is encouraging that BTC is showing the resilience needed to hold off Nigeria’s inflation boom. Bitcoin may face a major test if the government attempts to reduce cryptocurrency. Nigeria is an essential market in Africa and one the most important markets on Earth for Bitcoin.
Bitcoin needs a win such as this but also has to improve its position in other countries (discussed below).
China’s relationship is complicated with Bitcoin. China legalized Bitcoin mining. However, Chinese citizens have been prohibited from trading BTC for the Yuan in China since 2017. Despite its strict regulations regarding cryptocurrency exchanges, China continues to be a significant Bitcoin market. Over 50% of Bitcoin’s haveh rate comes from China.
Bitcoin has proven to be a success in China, despite the ban on Bitcoin. Bitcoin may be able, if it can survive this, to withstand any Chinese government attempts (including another cryptocurrency ban).
China is pushing for the digital Yuan, which is gold-backed. These countries see the future. It takes crypto one step closer toward widespread adoption, even though it may be a hybrid marketplace.
It is up to us as individuals to ensure that Bitcoin survives in harsh regulatory environments. To survive, Bitcoin needs more than good news. It must also have support from the people. You can still trade Bitcoin and keep your BTC in a wallet, but there’s hope for Bitcoin!
Bitcoin will continue to be fine as long you remain strong and committed, even in difficult times. Bitcoin is a rollercoaster and we need to enjoy it because there is no turning back!
Bitcoin’s future is uncertain. Bitcoin might be banned in certain countries but it has been around for a while and is still one of the most popular cryptocurrency on Earth. Bitcoin relies on you for support, whether it’s trading Bitcoin or holding it. Bitcoin will emerge stronger if we can withstand these tough times.
