CryptoNews of the Week

– Many members of the crypto community believe that bitcoin has already reached its local bottom. For example, this forecast is supported by an analyst known as MartyParty. In his opinion, this is indicated by the fact that the main cryptocurrency has fallen to levels that barely cover the costs of its mining.

MartyParty believes that the behaviour of bitcoin can be predicted using the Wyckoff method. However, the analyst is confident that it is important to consider the impact of the upcoming US presidential elections. MartyParty overlaid the Wyckoff distribution on the BTC price curve to show the expected trajectory of the cryptocurrency, considering the potential reaction to the election outcome. According to his calculations, the peak of bitcoin's growth may be recorded in June 2025.

Ryan Lee, the Chief Analyst at Bitget Research, also shared a positive forecast in a conversation with BeInCrypto. He noted that on the weekly chart, BTC is near the lower boundary of the Bollinger Bands. Such behaviour of the cryptocurrency, in his observations, indicates that the coin has reached its local bottom.

– However, many in the crypto community predict further declines for bitcoin. For instance, a trader known as AltstreetBet does not rule out the coin falling to $47,000, with the bearish trend continuing until the end of the year. A similar forecast was given by analyst Inmortal. He noted the similarity between BTC's behaviour and its trajectory in 2019. If history repeats itself, bitcoin will be able to grow only at the beginning of 2025.

– The correction of the first cryptocurrency may continue until it reaches $44,000. This opinion was expressed by legendary Wall Street trader and head of Factor LLC, Peter Brandt. The expert questioned whether bitcoin has completed the "double top" pattern on the daily chart. According to his calculations, the upper level of this model is around $72,000, and the lower level is at $43,970.

It is worth recalling that a "Double Top" is a chart pattern that signals a medium- or long-term trend reversal from bullish to bearish. It forms when the price of an asset reaches a peak twice with subsequent pullbacks.

– Popular analyst known as Dave the Wave gave a forecast similar to Peter Brandt's. He warned his 146,700 followers on social media platform X that bitcoin might be reflecting the price movement seen at the beginning of 2017. In this case, according to the logarithmic growth curve (LGC) model, the dip could lead to $44,000, followed by a parabolic surge. (The LGC model aims to predict the lows and highs of BTC's long-term cycle by filtering out short-term volatility).

According to the analyst, downward volatility is an integral part of a bull market. "Bitcoiners have to take the good with the bad... technically we are still in a bull market… And although one can be confident in ultimate victory, there may be a fall along the way."

Dave the Wave emphasizes that a deep corrective movement will benefit bitcoin in the long term. According to his forecast, the dip will allow BTC to rise by 400%, reaching $220,000 by the end of 2025.

– Benjamin Cowen, founder and head of ITC Crypto, also commented on the BTC price drop. In his opinion, digital gold is near a critical level. The movement of the two-week trend strength indicator (RSI) will soon show whether the price will go up (as in 2013 and 2016) or down (as in 2019). "I keep playing these games, trying to figure out what year it is now, but then I tell myself it's 2024, and [bitcoin] must be doing something different than before," the expert emphasized.

– Peter Schiff, a fierce opponent of cryptocurrencies and president of Euro Pacific Capital, pointed to the lack of institutional demand for bitcoin. "Pumpers blame the price drop on sales related to [payments to creditors of the bankrupt crypto exchange] Mt. Gox. This is partly true, but the liquidation also exposes the myth of institutional demand. If it existed, buyers would have jumped at the chance to buy Mt. Gox bitcoins," said the entrepreneur.

– According to a document published on Monday, June 8, the Republican Party of former US President Donald Trump has officially adopted a platform aimed at supporting innovation in the crypto sphere, reflecting Trump's and his fellow party members' interest in digital assets. "Republicans will end the Democrats' illegal and un-American repression in the crypto field and oppose the creation of a Central Bank digital currency," the document states. "We will protect the right to mine and the right of every American to self-custody their bitcoins [and] conduct transactions without government oversight and control."

– Katie Stockton, Managing Partner at Fairlead Strategies, confirmed in an interview on CNBC that the current drop in bitcoin prices is due to the beginning of payments to clients of the Mt. Gox exchange, which went bankrupt ten years after the hack. In her opinion, the long-term upward trend remains, and the BTC price drop is short-term: "In the second half of the year, more volatility is likely to be observed. The upward trend will remain, but more correction phases will occur."

Katie Stockton emphasized that bitcoin should be considered a long-term investment with significant growth potential akin to a call option. However, if the first cryptocurrency's price drops to $40,000, this could threaten the long-term bullish trend.

– Michael Saylor, co-founder and former CEO of MicroStrategy, stated that the decline in the first cryptocurrency's value would not affect the asset's attractiveness among investors. As evidence, he showed a table comparing the price dynamics of various asset classes over several years. Among them were bitcoin, gold, emerging market stocks, emerging market bonds, and treasury bonds. The best results were shown by bitcoin, young company stocks (U.S. Growth index), and the Nasdaq 100 index. From 2011 to 2024, the price of bitcoin increased by 18,881%, while during the same period, the Nasdaq 100 index rose by 931%, and gold by 59%. Earlier, Michael Saylor predicted bitcoin's growth to $10 million, declaring that the first cryptocurrency would offer economic immortality for corporations.

– According to Forbes, citizens of Argentina, a country with the highest level of cryptocurrency adoption in the Western Hemisphere and inflation of about 300%, prefer buying and holding digital assets. Forbes cites the latest study by analytical company SimilarWeb, according to which out of 130 million visitors to the 55 largest global crypto exchanges, approximately 2.5 million were from Argentina.

According to Maximiliano Hinz, head of the Latin American division of the crypto exchange Bitget, "Argentinians do not play lotteries with meme coins and do not try to get rich on the next hot token. Instead, they buy and hold Tether (USDT) stablecoins. This is an abnormal market where many people just buy USDT and do nothing else with it." Newly elected Argentine President Javier Milei stated that the country is moving towards a "regime of competing currencies" where every citizen will choose which assets to use for payments. However, according to Forbes, none of the five largest crypto exchanges represented in Argentina - Binance, eToro, BingX, HTX, and Bitget - have been registered with the National Securities Commission (CNV).
