BAKKT coming! Up or Down?steemCreated with Sketch.

BAKKT coming...

Two more days! Two more days for BAKKT to be launched, BAKKT will be the first financial tool that allows investors to deal, trade and invest in "physical Bitcoin", which means that if BAKKT gets a huge demand by big institutions, big investors, big traders, and big players, they will have to buy real Bitcoin from the market, increasing the demand and decreasing the supply on the exchanges... The issue is that this can also be a bad thing.

Were you guys here when the bear market started? I was! I was one of the fools that decided to buy the top.... back then I knew nothing of investing, trading, blockchains, DLTs, cryptography, I knew nothing, John Snow probably knew more than me, but I don't regret it, it's been a fantastic year and a half, having skin in the game is the best way for someone to learn, because stakes are high! Well, regardless of that...

In late 2017, early 2018, the bear market started, for those that weren't around back then one of the things that happened at the All-Time High were CME futures, a tool that is, in some ways, similar to BAKKT, but also different in the most important part... CME futures dealt with cash and not physical bitcoin, while BAKKT will deal with physical Bitcoin, that changes the whole thing since it drives actual demand and scarcity for the asset!

Many Bitcoin enthusiasts blame CME futures for the bear market, I disagree with them, maybe futures helped, but they weren't alone, the bear market was just unavoidable, nothing goes up forever, and with the slow Bitcoin transaction times, high fees, scams, pumps and dumps the market had back then it was just unavoidable. But maybe CME futures helped the whole thing crumble, maybe CME futures killed the phoenix that is the Crypto Market, no one knows, but it sure makes some people scared that the same thing is going to happen with BAKKT.

Well, in my opinion, BAKKT won't change things that much short-term, they've already bought a large number of Bitcoins and we don't have enough FOMO and adoption in the crypto market for BAKKT to change the whole chessboard, what it might do is give us more upside potential long-term.

But this is just my opinion, of course, I have no way of knowing, and no one truly knows, the only thing I know is that Bitcoin never reached a new All-time high before a halving, and, even though past price action doesn't necessarily correlate with future price action, I don't think that's going to change this time around.


I think we will spend Q4 2019 correcting and we will launch ourselves up in Q3 2020 all the way to mid-late 2021 when the next bear market restarts, with the possibility of us having a really, REALLY, prolonged bull market, I'm talking about a bull market spanning multiple halvings, if:

  • The right cryptos make the right moves
  • A good amount of cryptos finally get cashflow
  • We get a good amount of adoption, which might occur if FOMO not only in investors but also in governments, companies and developers arises.
  • The ECB and the Feds keep printing more money, which is almost certain it's going to happen
  • A recession happens

All-in-all, BAKKT is a good thing, it doesn't matter short-term, Bitcoin and most Cryptos are the first time humanity has something truly scarce, something that no one can dilute, BAKKT will just open the doors for big institutions to play with us, but, sooner or later, the scarcity that Crypto is will make them think twice if they shouldn't be long ALL THE TIME!

I think the most probable thing to happen is a pump and immediately a dump. Ahahah. This market is so rigged that it's impossible to guess these kind of movements.

I don't know what to make of Bakkt, but I think there's a fair chance we get a nice run up at the end of the year. I'm pretty much expecting BTC to hit an all time high within 4 months. After that happens the gloves are off and who knows what will happen.

I believe that financial collapse is coming, and there is a very good chance that it is the worst one the world has ever seen. People will be very desperate, and it's possible that ALL fiat currency becomes even more unstable than Bitcoin and/or precious metals. If that happens the tipping point is here and fiat will die a violent horrible death and billions will suffer. What fun. :/

I think it's still to early for BTC to reach a new ATH, but who knows, Bitcoin does whatever it wants, if I'm mistaken I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

I actually hope that we can halt that financial collapse for a couple more years, a financial collapse atm would halt many of the plans for a third industrial revolution, a revolution towards a greener/hydrogen world a world more environmentally friendly... but well, whatever comes comes.

If we moved fast into a hydrogen/renewable energy based society with a shared, digital and automated economy we could probably not have a financial collapse for many more decades if ever... the question is, how fast can we do it.
