'Bitcoin bubble may end up helping BTC' go north, here's how

Share this article

  • Bitcoin bubbles may aid its long-term adoption, as per an analyst.
  • Maximalists remain optimistic about BTC despite short-term concerns.

Matt Huang, the co-founder of Paradigm ventures, believes that Bitcoin has been going through bubble phases that impact its overall health. According to him, bubbles are created when short-term traders start to buy BTC due to a surge in prices.

However, as demand for BTC during that period reaches its peak, the prices start to decline, and the bubble bursts, hurting the short-term investors.

Making the case for bubbles

Huang is of the opinion that these bubbles may end up aiding Bitcoin in the long term. This is because every time the market witnesses a bubble, the adoption of Bitcoin goes higher, and the cryptocurrency becomes more accepted.

The behavior of large addresses seems to indicate that we may be experiencing a Bitcoin bubble now. In the last few days, whales have dumped over 200 million worth of BTC, and the open interest in Bitcoin has increased.

This shows that high volatility is to be expected ahead for Bitcoin.

Another indicator that suggests Bitcoin may be in trouble in the short term would be the large number of addresses in profit. They have reached an 11-month high of 31,579,467.387.

These factors may affect Bitcoin’s price negatively. But, it should be noted that the king coin’s adoption also increased in the past year. According to data from Glassnode Bitcoin network’s generated fees went up over the past few days.

Too much optimism?

Despite all the negativity surrounding BTC, Balaji Srinivasan, the former CTO of Coinbase,  remains optimistic about Bitcoin’s future. He went as far as to bet $1 million on Bitcoin hitting a million dollars over the next 90 days.

The ex-Coinbase exec believes that the U.S. will undergo hyperinflation soon, leading to a decline of faith in USD and an exponential rise in interest for BTC.

While Balaji’s extremely optimistic prediction about BTC may not come to fruition, it has shifted the sentiment of traders on the market. As a result, long positions taken in favor of BTC have increased over the last few days.
