Historic day for crypto: The Merge is here premium
The Ethereum Merge has happened. It’s here. And I believe it’s a landmark, historic moment for the cryptocurrency market as a whole. This major network upgrade sees a move to a new operating model that will utilise 99.9% less energy and reduce supply of the world’s second largest cryptocurrency. As I was quoted by CNBC, International Investment, Financial Mirror and Tech Round, amongst other media, The Merge has been years in the making and this overhaul of the most Read More

Bitcoin to hit new all-time high on boost to institutional investor access premium
I believe Bitcoin will hit a new record high of $70,000 in 2022 as institutional investment increases. This comes at a time when a major U.S.-based asset manager has joined forces with a crypto exchange to boost access to cryptocurrencies amongst institutional investors. As I said to Forbes, Nasdaq, Advisorpedia and Zawya, amongst other media, interest in Bitcoin and crypto from institutional investors has soared over the past few months and is only set to Read More

Ethereum’s rise to the top seems unstoppable premium
Ethereum will keep outperforming Bitcoin this year and ultimately surpass its rival’s value. Yes, I recognise it’s a bold prediction, but looking at the stats, Ethereum is up around 240% in 2021, compared to less than 38% for Bitcoin. In fact, ETH has outperformed all other benchmark assets in the first six months of the year. As I was quoted by City AM and Cointelegraph, amongst other media, there are two principal reasons that are fuelling Ethereum’s performance this Read More

Cryptocurrencies: Are some banks on the wrong side of history? premium
Banks and other financial institutions who are still not recognising major cryptocurrencies as a legitimate asset class are on the wrong side of history. Over the last six months, Bitcoin and other digital currencies have had such an impressive run. So, when the crypto market shed over $1 trillion in a week after hitting record highs, a number of financial institutions have spoken out. A period of consolidation and short-term correction isn’t surprising in Read More

Baby Boomers and Gen X embracing Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies premium
Baby boomers and Generation X are really getting behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. A recent deVere poll of our clients over the age of 55 revealed 70% are already invested in digital currencies or are planning to do so in 2021. Following Bitcoin hitting fresh highs over $58,000 last weekend, and Ethereum racing past $2,000 for the first time, the crypto market has grabbed people’s attention across the globe. And not just the so-called 'digital Read More

2020 Bitcoin halving underlines crypto is mainstream premium
Monday saw the highly anticipated Bitcoin halving event take place, only the third in the history of the event. These halvings happen every four years, and as of Monday’s 2020 halving, the number of new Bitcoins issued every 10 minutes dropped from 12.5 to 6.25. The halving happened on block 630,000. This historic event has shown in two ways how secure Bitcoin’s long-term future is. First, the Bitcoin price has been steadily increasing ahead of the halving event. Almost Read More

Cryptocurrencies should bolster Brexit Britain’s troubled financial services sector premium
As I have been quoted as saying in Coin Telegraph amongst many other publications, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin should play an important role in reforming and reviving the UK’s financial services sector after Brexit. For the first time since the 2016 Brexit referendum, the UK economy has showed signs of contraction, driving speculation of a recession in Britain. In addition, it also follows Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market Read More

Another Bitcoin bull run is on the way premium
Bitcoin may well be on the brink of the next bull run, as the price on Wednesday surpassed the $8,000 barrier against the U.S. dollar following a period of low volatility. Abandoning its characteristic volatility, Bitcoin has been oscillating within a $600 range for over a week. However, this all changed on Wednesday when the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation advanced beyond the key $8,000 resistance level. This could certainly be an indicator that Read More

Investors will make the most of crypto volatility premium
Volatility returns to the crypto market after quite some time, with leading cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and Ethereum, and others, in the red on Monday. Indeed, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation, Bitcoin, has dropped in price by $1,400 in 12 days and gone under the $5,000 threshold for the first time since October last year. Volatility returns to the crypto market after quite some time, with leading cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and Ethereum, and others, in the Read More

Crypto market to rise 5,000% by Bitcoin’s 20th anniversary premium
We can expect to see a significant reduction in Bitcoin’s dominance and influence of the cryptocurrency sector as it enters into its second decade. In addition, I believe the crypto market will, in all likelihood, grow by a minimum of 5,000 per cent in the next 10 years.
