ICO-NEWS-Bitcoin-surpasses-stocks Anthony Pompliano | Founder of Morgan Creek Digital Assets

The founder of Morgan Creek Digital Assets, Anthony Pompliano, told CNN in an interview why he and other entrepreneurs are protecting Bitcoin and remain committed to new technologies even though the market is plummeting.

"We have very deep conviction on a long-term basis. And if you look at the fundamentals, the 24-hour transaction volume on the Bitcoin network is about $4.6 billion as of lately, and the market cap is $74 billion. So that's about a 16-times multiple of transaction volume for market cap. That's very similar to MasterCard which does about $11 billion worth of transactions and is valued at about $180 billion. So from a value perspective, it's right there on par with MasterCard," he said.

ICO-NEWS--until-the-end-of-the-year-Bitcoin-will-rise-to--15000 Tom Lee | Financial analyst

Financial analyst and co-founder of Fundstrat Global Advisors Tom Lee changed his forecast for the price of Bitcoin by the end of this year, cutting the figure almost twice.

Lee believes that predicting future quotes need to build on the cost of mining. Analysts at Fundstrat report that earlier the return on Bitcoin mining on the S9 Antminer device was $ 8,000, but now the figure has dropped to $ 7,000. According to Lee, the first cryptocurrency rate should exceed the payback index 2.2 times, so his forecast is $ 15,000.

The head of the largest Bitcoin derivatives trading platform BitMEX Arthur Hayes expressed the opinion that the "bearish" trend in the cryptocurrency market may last another 18 months.

I started in bitcoin in 2013, when the price went from $250 to $1,300. And then 2014 to 2015 was sort of the nuclear bear market.
