Pigs on a rampage, Bitcoin drops $2,000

Bitcoin prices plunged by more than 15%, approaching the $17,000 level.

6 features to look out for in a Cryptocurrency, Cryptocurrency: Discern investors’ goldmine 

It appears that the bulls driving Bitcoin upward lately have momentarily gone out of steam. Bitcoin prices plunged by more than 15%, approaching the $17,000 level, after reaching as high as $19,580, owing to heavy losses as large investors cash in on some of their Bitcoin holdings.

  • The crypto lost $2,000 in a matter of few hours, falling around $17,000 before it sprang up back to the $17,900 price level.
  • Taking into consideration that most bitcoin wallets are in profit, unsurprisingly, some investors are already cashing out some of their gains amid the end of a turbulent 2020.
  • That said, its recent price action shows its tilting towards an overbought position.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin price was $17,890.84 with a 24-hour trading volume of $33,259,413,581.

The Head of the blockchain intelligence platform further anticipated the likelihood for Bitcoin to go through a period of correction, as more investors deposit their BTC on Coinbase.

Too many BTC whales on Coinbase. I’m still long-term bullish, but we might face some corrections or sideways until whales become inactive on spot exchanges.”

Should you buy it?

Although it’s more likely that some Bitcoin whales increase their purchases when prices drop to these levels, Nairametrics, envisages cautious buying, as the volatility in this fast-changing market, could lead to a significant loss of capital.

However, if things get really terrible, Nairametrics believes this could be another chance to buy bitcoin below $15,000.

Ethereum is a global, open-source platform for decentralized applications. In other words, the vision is to create a world computer that anyone can build applications with, in a decentralized manner, while all states and data are distributed and publicly accessible.

The native currency that flows within the Ethereum economy is called Ether (ETH), which is typically used to pay for transaction fees and also the base currency of the network.

On Ethereum, all transactions and smart contract executions require a small fee to be paid, which is called Gas. In technical terms, Gas refers to the unit of measure on the amount of computational effort required to execute an operation or a smart contract.

What they are saying

ETH sellers should be cautious of a reversal, on the bias that the world’s biggest crypto hedge fund, Grayscale, revealed huge buying interests prevailing at the Ethereum market.

On its Twitter feed, it said: “It’s become clear there’s a strong demand for Ethereum investment products. In our 3Q20 investment report, we saw the largest investment into Grayscale Ethereum Trust ever, with over $202 million in quarterly inflows.”

ripple cryptocurrency, XRP

Rich Ripple players seem to be upping their game in Q4, 2020, as regards moving XRP – the third most valuable crypto by market value, as lately seen by Nairametrics.

Large investors have increased the pace at which such huge transfers are made, as seen via Whale Alert, with over $50 million worth of XRP in more than 5 transactions transferred within the last 12 hours — hinting that there might be more than meets the eyes.

The two most recent transactions include,

  • 20,000,000 XRP (12,591,740 USD) transferred from Unknown wallet to Bitstamp
  • 10,000,000 XRP (6,814,748 USD) transferred from Uphold to unknown wallet

That said, many crypto experts anticipate the movement of such cryptos are coming from major stakeholders of Ripple, on the bias some of these wallets contain a significant amount of XRP.

XRP price has jumped by more than 100% since last week, leaving behind the top two cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum in price gain.

What you should know

  • Ripple (XRP) plays dual roles, as a payment platform and a currency. The platform is an open-source platform that is created to allow quick and cheap transactions.
  • Unlike its crypto rival, Bitcoin, which was never intended to be a simple payment system, Ripple has gained the attention of major global banks, such as Standard Chartered and Barclays for international transactions worldwide.

What they are saying

Economic Historian, Barry Eichengreen, recently explained that cryptos should not just be considered for speculative reasons, as leading crypto assets have shown characteristics of being tangible assets.

Barry went on to explain why cryptos have become the new digital gold, “Gold doesn’t really have any intrinsic value. People [believe] it will hold its value because other people value it. There is, from that point-of-view, a parallel with cryptocurrencies. People pay actual U.S. dollars for it, because they think other people will value it and pay actual U.S. dollars for it.”
