Market update March 1st 2018. Have we reached the bottom yet? Porsche explores Blockchain.

in #bitcoin4 years ago

Finally, the month we've all been waiting for. Incredibly low volumes, positive news and a technical chart that looks like it should moon any time now.


After being through constant FUD the past months, and Bitcoin and other cryptos defending their prices pretty well, we are by all measures ready for another huge bull run. The start of March is when it should or at least could happen. I usually hate short term predictions like this, but this time it just looks so very possibly that I'm stressing it. I've been right in all my predictions for Cryptos so far, and until I'm starting to get things wrong - I trust my own judgement. But please, this is not financial advice. Just a advice..ooon the Internet. (The Crypto-Lark reference there. One of my favorite dudes on cryptos btw)

Steem volume is incredibly low

See how it diseappears? It's down to $14 million USD. Just a few weeks ago it was trading at 30-40 million, and before that as high as 150 million. This is not just Steem, but across the board.

If we look at the general long term trend the last year, we can see that market has gone up on high volume, and it has fallen lately on lower volume. To me, it looks like it's almost impossible that we could go much lower.
But who knows. It could be over and out - like it seems many people tend to believe. It's so strange to see this irrational behavior by so many. People seem to lose faith in cryptos so fast. A little resistance, and people give up and "go back to their dayjob" Have some patience. What is the fundamental difference between now and December? None. In fact, the fundamentals are much better. IMO this is a case of prices not catching up with reality yet, and not the opposite way.

Coinbase har resolved issue with BTC buys and sells

One reason perhaps why money has been coming in slow into cryptos lately could have been Coinbase issue with intermittent availability for BTC buys and sells. It was partially down for more than 7 hours yesterday.

BTC is still market as "degraded performance" on Coinbase.

I hope this is the bottom for us and we see some recovery in March but who knows where we even stand

Btc dominance back at 40%.
You are right everything seems to be setting up for a bull season. Tone vays has his traders waiting to push over a trend line sitting @ 11k about. And it seems other traders are all waiting.
Let hope for the best! Good article. Enjoyed it.

Not entirely sure if we have hit the bottom already, but I can't be too worried about this short term dips. The overall picture shows lots of positivity, with highly reputable companies exploring and using the blockchain. Suggests it's only a matter of time before we reach the mass adoption stage, which will naturally boost us to the moon.

Nice post by the way, easy to comprehend & very informative!
