This week, we have been rewarded with an additional wave of increases in Bitcoin’s price and altcoins prices. The ongoing downtrend we have seen with the altcoins have stopped since October 24th, the coins have changed their trend and went up by dozens of percents until Bitcoin’s price broke the $6000 price and stabilized the market.
Bitcoin Gold’s fork brought a lot of attention and has set a new all-time high price for Bitcoin. As it seems, the upcoming fork in November (Segwit2X) will not be the last one. It is hard to tell what will be the upcoming forked coin’s value and use.
BitPay announced today that it will support Bitcoin2X, a move which can affect the market in the near future. Will the upcoming fork receive support? Soon we will probably know, but as it seems, the affects of this fork will be different than the previous ones. Will businesses accept the current Bitcoin, or will they shift to using the new one (Segwit2X)?
Bitcoin Gold’s test-net is supposed to be launched tomorrow, the real network is supposed to go live afterwards. Bit-fin-ex exchange and some additional exchanges already offer trading “futures” of Bitcoin Gold, the coin is already traded around the price of $130.
Altcoins had a very positive week, some of the major altcoins were quite stable and found their floor (for the short time), some of them had a nice uptrend and above all – Vertcoin (VTC), whose price rose by 50% during last week. The Altcoins returned to the main arena this week, but it seems that in the past two days the momentum somewhat stopped because of the rise in Bitcoin’s price. The effect is felt in Bitcoin trading versus the USD. The major altcoins didn’t lose their USD value, though they lost their Bitcoin’s value, and as I mentioned before, some went up.
The situation seems very positive all around the crypto market in such a way that the interest and buzz around Blockchain and crypto trading are only growing and people are starting to understand it’s huge potential.
The question is…until when. In a situation like this, when things look really positive, will things continue along these path? Is this the bubble everyone talks about?
We have already mentioned the bubble situation in our previous update reports, since the market has grown to a market value of around 180 billion USD.
