The rapid rise of Bitcoin’s value in the second half of 2017 was followed by an even faster fall from grace as the great “crypto winter” began. The dramatic rise and fall of Bitcoin underlines the fascinating, and often controversial, journey that cryptocurrency has taken into the mainstream.
Bitcoin experienced a sustained decline throughout the course of 2018, ending the year at a value comparable to pre-boom levels. Despite this 2019 has marked a surprise comeback for Bitcoin and the host of other cryptocurrencies that survived the crash.
Today Bitcoin is priced at over $7,300 – almost twice as much as half a year ago. With the positive interest, some estimate that a new record-high might be achieved in the upcoming months. One might wonder – why Bitcoin’s value has taken off all of sudden, and how can they avoid being caught out by another sudden crash?
Cryptocurrency enters a new spring
Since the beginning of 2019, cryptocurrencies have seen a flurry of investor activity, as both the number of clients and volume of transactions was steadily rising. Interestingly enough, the ongoing political instability in Turkey and Venezuela has prompted their citizens to look for a safe way of storing their capital. As cryptos provide an easy and secure way of investing, on-chain activity in these countries has surged almost 30%.
On top of this the technology has been embraced by some established names. the JP Morgan coin demonstrates the appetite for big businesses for cryptocurrency, so long as they control the technology at least. The interest of established giants in cryptocurrency has likely gone some way to re-legitimizing the technology in the eyes of investors.
Another factor that could stimulate the recent rise of Bitcoin is the apparent interest of big capital in the crypto market. Nike and Facebook are rumored to have invested sums of up to $1 billion into cryptocurrencies, and the market is quick to respond.
Bitcoin’s 50-day moving average has overtaken the 200-day average. This phenomenon, dubbed “golden cross”, is indicative of a positive momentum on the market. Investors have quickly taken notice and cryptocurrencies are likely to experience exponential growth as a result.
How to stay afloat in the sea of change?
Cryptocurrency markets can change overnight, as anyone caught out in the great crash of 2017 can attest. To succeed in a volatile marketplace it’s important to understand the fortunes of your assets at a glance and quickly react to market shifts before you get bitten.

These smaller tokens can be scattered across different wallets and exchanges and that’s a lot of data you need to digest daily in order to make the most of your portfolio.
