New Checkpoint @3500$ - 4000$ is next?

in #bitcoin3 years ago


Today bitcoin continued it's bull run to moon hitting 3500+$ on popular exchanges on the net. Ever since the controversial hard fork on August 1st bitcoin has had a major uptrend with only 2 red days so far. Is 4000$ next? In the meantime US stocks are plummeting as the U.S. and North Korea conflict continues.

The bitcoin chart has gathered a lot of momentum over the past week and is looking incredibly strong, despite the fact that Bitcoincash is trading at around 320$. What are your predicitons for next week? Will we see a final push to the 4K mark or will we see a price correction before we continue our move to the moon? Let me know in the comments!

I'm predicting $5000 before end August!!

Very optimistic but not impossible.

Can you explain shifts that will occur due to NewPowBtc and BTC1 forks? Also will adoption of segwit allow for the fbi to unload its 144,000 bitcoins? I'm a crypto newbie

Thanks for your question. If NewPoWBTC were to actually exist August 15 the mining hardware of the professional miners would theoretically become obsolete and cpu/gpu mining at home would become a thing again. This would mean that the mining power would go back to the people theoretically speaking. However since segwit locked in 4 days ago it's almost certain this event will not occur. The hardfork part of segwit2x could potentially create Btc1. That would mean that some miners wouldn't update their software to support a big her block size. How and what exactly might happen is still open for debate since the hardfork is scheduled to be take place sometime around 22-23 of november.

What do you mean by unloading? I'm assuming you mean selling their bitcoin. It doesn't matter theoretically speaking they can unload it at any given time. Segwit is just a software update.

Many thanks, I suspect btc1 will be created and another round of funny bussiness will occur as it had with bitcoin cash.

To me segwit seems a means for quicker sales, aka sell all their holdings while the regular userbase doesn't have access to the exchanges. It happened with the bitcoin cash fork where coinbase and others didn't allow transfers. Bitfinex gave like a .3bch:1btc ratio after the fork too after it was all said and done, robbing from the userbase.
