The cryptocurrency market’s situation in 2019 has been a much-talked-about topic in the space with several proponents as well as critics giving their perspectives on the current standings as well as the future. The recent official who gave his viewpoint was Mark Lamb, the Chief Executive Officer of CoinFLEX.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Lamb spoke about the advent of the bear run as well as the runway approach taken by the cryptocurrency market. He stated that the 80 percent correction rate undergone in the market is nothing new as such events are commonplace in the cryptosphere. The CEO added:

“One of the things that caught my eye in the boom phase was the sheer over-exuberance of the market, something that has settled right now. Currently, the space is much more focused on building infrastructure and other support architecture required to propagate the industry.”

According to the CoinFLEX official, the key focus of the company is to physically settle Bitcoin futures contract that reduces manipulation and risk. He stated that the concept is something that is followed by gold, oil, treasury futures and is even followed in cash-settled futures.

Lamb focused on the key point that needs to be catered to the users: they should be sure about the time of expiry of the assets as well as the stipulated amount.



Lamb further said that users should not be a victim of market manipulation and claimed that since Bitcoin Futures are tied to the underlying asset, it is useful for commercial hedging and hedging Over-the-Counter trade. Talking about the advantages of the concept, Lamb said that the transparency and the link between the assets offer a great foundation for legitimate trade. He went on to say:

“The Asian market’s contribution to the cryptocurrency space is huge right now and an overtake does not look to occur anytime soon. The regulatory blockades in the United States have slowed down the progress but there are signs of progress.”

The cryptocurrency proponent also stated that being an offshore company has its perks as it allows organizations to cater to markets around the globe and not just a restricted user base. CoinFLEX’s owners also include Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver as well trading Technologies International Incorporated.

CNBC’s Crypto Trader Ran NeuNer, spoke to Max Keiser, Co-founder of Heisenberg Capital on the sidelines of the Magical Crypto Conference and discussed Bitcoin’s current trends.

Keiser said that he was bullish on Bitcoin in the long term, adding that he would be sticking by his “$100,000” prediction for Bitcoin. He stated,

“I never stopped make price prediction… I said it [Bitcoin] was going to a hundred thousand dollars and it was only a dollar and I said that all publicly… it is still going to a hundred thousand dollars”

He added that the timing of when Bitcoin would reach the mark was not important, but that it would outperform every other asset over the next 15 years. Additionally, he said that timing was only for people who were waiting to buy crypto at a better price and “that is a bad way to approach crypto.”

Keiser displayed his enthusiasm for crypto, commenting that, “Stack Satoshis… Stack SATs… you should be stacking SATs.” Giving his opinion on Bitcoin’s recent rally, Keiser said,



“I think that it goes back to when Federal Reserve issued a statement saying that they’re moving the policy to permanent quantitative easing… which means money printing without end. As you know Bitcoin is hard money, like gold, and it is going to respond well to hyperinflation and hyper-money printing.”

Further, Keiser claimed that Bitcoin bottomed when the Federal Reserve announced this a few weeks ago and that this was due to a couple of reasons. The first being Bitcoin’s upcoming halving which highlights the scarcity of Bitcoin. According to Keiser, the second reason was that the sellers were exhausted. All the above reasons, in totality, contributed to Bitcoin’s price rise, claimed Keiser.

Since Bitcoin has already proven itself as a store of value, Keiser remarked that it would be best to concentrate on Lightning Network, a layer-two scalability solution for Bitcoin and improve it as a medium of exchange.
