Bitcoin, Litecoin Could Become Global Reserve Currencies In The Midst Of Geopolitical Tensions

Bitcoin optimist Brian Kelly speaks up about the future of cryptocurrencies

In the latest interview with Brian Kelly during the Crypto Finance Conference in Switzerland, Kelly discussed about the future prospects of Bitcoin and the financial crisis.

Kelly's main concern in 2019 is the dip in Bitcoin prices. That could mean prices falling below $3000, and $1500 could also be very likely. However he sees this drop as the end of a short-term trend citing the reasons:

"I think we're coming to an end. Here's the thing, the sellers that we've seen recently are almost forced sellers. Some CEOs had to raise cash because they say they “can't hold it in crypto all the time.” These are signs of the end," he said.

Due to rising geopolitical tensions in some parts of the world, Kelly thinks that it could be likely "Bitcoin, Litecoin and some of those [coins]" to become global reserves currencies.

"We're starting to see some global macro players use Bitcoin as an alternative to their gold position or as a way to hedge against fiat currency fluctuations and volatility," Kelly proposed.

It could definitely be used a hedge however volatility could hinder stronger mainstream involvement with cryptocurrencies at the moment. In many occasions we have heard of strong returns from early investors and wished we were part of it.

Going against the trend and strong public opinions is challenging for any investor. However when the 'homework' is done substantially well, one should be confident to take the risks for greater returns.

That was exactly what should not have happened during Dec 2017's peak:

"I can remember in November and December — and even frankly in January, a year ago — I was getting phone calls daily like “How can I get into your fund?” “I need to get into that... That was happening at the peak. At the bottom, the phone does not ring. It's the exact opposite," Kelly commented.

When someone yells at you, 'BUY', 'SELL' or 'HODL', we should be reminded of our investment targets and base decisions upon research rather than sentiments of the crowd.

Kelly is also very clear that he may only be right about his predictions "60 percent of the time".

If today is the first time you are reading about trading, Kelly is probably the one sharing his Investments 101.



It is just a question of times and the best is to come!

Dear @tysler

I'm not sure who Brian Kelly but he does sound like he is an optimist. The only problem is that in case of "Midst Of Geopolitical Tensions" we should not only focus on economy but mostly on politics.

And politics towards crypto can be very different from our expectations.

My voting power is down to 50% so I won't be able to upvote your post this time. Sorry bout it.


Hi @crpyto.piotr, thanks for dropping by! We are hoping that economies facing greater instability than Bitcoin's volatility could adopt BTC as a reserve. This could create national conglomerates which in turn stabilizes BTC's prices.

Dear @tysler

I'm quite sure that I already asked you before (hope not more than once) to support my little initiative so this request may not be anything new :)

Sorry for 2 comments in the row. But ...
I really could use YOUR HELP :) Nothing serious really. But I still hope you can spare few minutes of your time :)

Can you open this post and write a comment: "I nominate @crypto.piotr and @help.venezuela?

We've a chance to win 20k delegation (for 1 year) and I hope I can count on your support.

If this link is taking to long to open, then try other one:

I would appreciate :)

@tysler interesting article. I think this could be a real possibility. Not too sure about LTC but certainly for BTC...

I hear that Dash is being used a lot in Venezuela and other South American countries facing financial collapse. It is fast and cheap to move. Possibly even better than Bitcoin at the moment apparently when it comes to a use case.

Hi @julianhorack, yes that is what I have previously heard about Dash as well. Dash has fast transaction speeds that is good for daily use. Looking into a store of global reserves, BTC and LTC would be better in terms of long-term storage

Good to know, indeed BTC and LTC are the main gold and silver of crypto as they say. ETH is also a contender but XRP is to be avoided.

#DigiByte #DGB is a UTXO blockchain born in 2014 as a non-ICO with the focus in cyber-security. Truly decentralized with five mining algorithms that’s impossible for majority control. It’s way faster than bitcoin and litcoin without the use of lightnigh network. Although it xan be implemented but unnecessary. The reasons why DigiByte is the superior UTXO blockchain. DYOR
