Comparing Price Performances In 2020

Why compare historical performances? It helps to provide information that may assist in buying or selling decisions. Looking at the picture, the sharp rise in the value of bitcoin in the year in review (2020), has placed the cryptocurrency at the top of performing asset overtaking gold, silver and crude oil. Looking at the past four months, the value of bitcoin has jumped by almost 30% despite a major crash in March that wiped more than $4,000 (£3,200) from its value as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

On the other hand, other investors hub like Gold has only risen by around 13 percent, while silver has fallen by 14 percent and crude oil has dropped by more than 70 percent in value at the same time that bitcoin had its major clash. Few weeks after a major event known as a halving, whereby the number of new bitcoins created will fall by 50 percent bitcoin rise. Within a decade of bitcoin history, it is only the third time halving occurred and so market analysts believe it could push the crypto currency’s price to new all-time highs this year. There has been a significant gain in bitcoin and gold since around mid-March when countries around the world began to introduce lockdown measures in an effort to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Major Partnership
with Bitcoin

JP Morgan, Gemini and Coinbase Partners With Bitcoin(BTC)

The Wall Street Journal reported that JPMorgan had established an official banking relationship with two cryptocurrency exchanges: Gemini and long-time Finovate alum coinbase, JPMorgan is not going all-in on crypto; the agreement calls for the bank to process only the exchange’s fiat-based transactions. Nevertheless, the partnership is a notable milestone in the relationship between big banks and the bitcoin business.

The news is interesting for a variety of reasons. For one, JPMorgan CEO and Jamie Dimon has been a notorious critic of, if not all cryptocurrencies, then at least bitcoin. In 2017, Dimon called bitcoin “a fraud,” adding that bitcoin is “worse than tulip bulbs. It won’t end well. Someone is going to get killed.” He has since moderated his critique, and his bank, like most other major financial institutions, are piloting various initiatives that use bitcoin’s underlying blockchain technology even if not embracing bitcoin itself. That said, last year the bank announced the creation of a JPM Coin that can be used as a digital token to instantly settle transactions. The initiative was the first real-world use of a digital coin by a major bank in the U.S.

The partnership news also comes just after the bitcoin halving, in which the reward for mining BTC transactions is reduced by 50% in order to manage supply. This week’s process is the third in the cryptocurrency’s history; bitcoin was halved first in 2012 and again in 2016. After the most recent halving four years ago, bitcoin saw significant price appreciation, climbing from approximately $650 that July to nearly $20,000 a year and a half later. And while the halving has helped draw renewed attention to cryptocurrencies as alternative stores of value, few anticipate bitcoin making the same kind of post-halving run this time around as it did in 2016.

Conclusion

A few major cryptocurrencies are attracting buyers on dips, which suggests that investor sentiment remains bullish. Only about 3.5 million Bitcoin (BTC) are available for trading, according to new data from blockchain analytics firm Chainalysis. The remaining 11.4 million are held as a long-term investment and 3.7 million are believed to be lost. This suggests that if institutional investors enter the crypto space and invest in the long-term, the tradeable supply of the Top-Ranked Cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap is likely to shrink further and possibly boost the price of BTC.
