Is Bitcoin Bound for New Highs or Have the Bears Taken Over? Crypto Analyst Benjamin Cowen Updates Outlook

Published

on

Popular crypto analyst Benjamin Cowen says Bitcoin’s future market cycles will be defined by two key trends.

The trader tells his 553,000 YouTube subscribers about a chart that tracks historical BTC market cycles from their respective bottoms. He believes the chart is likely to reveal a lot about future patterns for the largest crypto asset by market cap.

“We looked at this chart years and years ago, and our speculation was two things… First of all, we would expect we’re going to have diminishing returns. Second of all, we would expect we’re going to have lengthening cycles. Now, these two theories are not mutually exclusive, you can have one without the other, and if $64k does end up being the market cycle top, then rather than having lengthening cycles, we just had diminishing returns.

Now I’m still speculating that the cycle will ultimately lengthen and that we will ultimately take out $64k before we get to the next halving and whatnot. I think we’ll be able to put in new all-time highs if not this year, [then] next year, and I do think we’ll continue moving along the way. I don’t think we’re headed for a three-year bear market/accumulation phase. I’m not thinking that we’re heading towards that at this point.”

Bitcoin is trading at $41,714 at time of writing and is down nearly 15% over the past month, according to CoinGecko.

Cowen says that so far, this cycle doesn’t resemble what happened in 2017 given that Bitcoin hasn’t reached a new all-time high since April. Bitcoin surged to record highs in 2017, followed by a market crash in 2018.

“If anything, it looks more like 2013. This has been our argument all along, that it seems like it’s a stretched-out version of 2013.

“We had this lull in the market in 2013. We’re getting that same type of lull now. And then ultimately I hope we go in another leg. Do we have to go to $300k two months from now? Absolutely not. Just because that [steep run up] is exactly what happened in 2013, does not mean it has to happen exactly like that this

How big is median increase in Bitcoin (BTC) price in bullish market phases?

As Bitcoin (BTC) reclaims $62,000 level, Dan Morehead, CEO of the first-ever cryptocurrency-focused VC firm in the U.S., shares the comprehensive statistics of the last six bull runs for Bitcoin.

Bitcoin (BTC) price doubled in 87 days: Bull Run 2021

According to the latest tweet by Mr. Morehead, the Bitcoin (BTC) price witnessed a 2x increase in the first 87 days of the ongoing bullish wave.

Unlike many other experts, Mr. Morehead identifies two separate “bull run” phases in 2020-2021. During the previous one, between March 16, 2020, and April 14, 2021, it took 394 days for Bitcoin (BTC) to increase its price 13x and print a new all-time high.

According to his infographic, the most impressive rally ended with a 106x increase of the orange coin’s price in 2015-2017.

That said, the median Bitcoin (BTC) price bull run lasted for 300 days and increased the “king coin’s price” by 15x.

Will Bitcoin ETF mark the top of the BTC cycle?

At the same time, according to “The Next Price Era” letter issued by Pantera Capital on Oct. 6, 2021, the hotly-anticipated approval of Bitcoin (BTC) ETFs is listed amidst the possible “sell the news” events.

Mr. Morehead noticed that the launch of CME Bitcoin Futures and Coinbase direct listing triggered painful bear markets:

Will someone please remind the day before the bitcoin ETF officially launches?  I might want to take some chips off the table.

As covered by U.Today previously, similar statements were made by CNBC’s Jim Cramer.

The seasoned analyst also revealed his plans to “cash out” 50% of his Ethereum (ETH) bags.

Bitcoin Will Significantly Underperform Altcoin Market As New Crypto Price Era Unfolds: Pantera Capital’s Dan Morehead

Published

on

The founder and chief executive officer of Pantera Capital says that investors can expect altcoins to outperform Bitcoin (BTC) in the long term.

In a recent edition of Pantera’s Blockchain Letter, the head of the digital asset management firm outlines Dan Morehead’s key quotes from the SALT 2021 conference in New York. During the conference, Morehead said that even though his company has greatly profited from BTC, he emphasized that most future crypto gains will come from altcoin investments.ADVERTISEMENT

“My perspective is: Bitcoin has been amazing – Pantera Bitcoin Fund is up 67,000% since inception. However, I think the majority of future gains will be from tokens outside of Bitcoin. I know that sounds heretical to some people here, but that’s my professional opinion.”

Morehead compares the rise of Bitcoin and its competitors to that of the tech industry boom during the late 1990s.

“It’s like saying in 1998 that [the] majority of future tech gains would come from outside Microsoft.

At the time, Microsoft was worth $218 billion, Apple $3.5 billion, Amazon was $2.2 billion. Google and Facebook were zero – they didn’t even exist. In the years since Microsoft did great – it went up 10x. However, 80% of the tech gains in these five stocks came from outside Microsoft.

That’s the view I have here – I think BTC is going to go up a ton – like 10x. It’s a great investment…[but] I think the broader portfolio is going to outperform.”

At time of writing, BTC has a market cap of $1.156 trillion while all altcoins combined have a market cap of $1.327 trillion, according to CoinMarketCap.
