Crypto Investors Focus on a Fewer Big Players

Investors, who were waiting for the non-stop growth of Bitcoin up to $20K after a jump to 14,000, are probably extremely disappointed now. Those who bought BTC above $10K suffer even more. However, they are not selling their bitcoins now. In this case, we are talking more about profit-taking.
Crypto investors focus on a fewer big players

It is extremely difficult to make an investment decision to buy at the moment of reaching the bottom when the whole market is in the final stage of depression. Those who decided to buy Bitcoin above $3K now have a good reward for their courage. When the most impatient people leave the market, as well as investors who decided to fix losses and Bitcoin will reach the local bottom, which, according to the CEO of Galaxy Digital Mike Novogratz is at $8,500, then the market consolidates around the reached levels for some time, and after the BTC can get a new impulse from buyers.

All of this about the medium-term perspective, while during the last day Bitcoin lost 3% and trades around $9,700. Once again, the MA50 is being tested, passing through 9630. Bitcoin is finding it harder and harder to stay above $10K. Everything is happening within the framework of tech analysis and logic (adjusted for the special nature of the cryptocurrencies), and there was no complete duplication of the 2017 rally.

The altcoin market follows the first cryptocurrency. TOP-10 altcoins lose within 3% during the last 24 hours. In a broader perspective, some altcoins are in a very tight situation. For example, ZCash (ZEC) is now only $25 (or 50%) above this year’s lows (or 92% below highs in early 2018). Other stars of the rally 2017th, while feeling better, are also experiencing an investor’s confidence crisis.

Perhaps it would not be an exaggeration to say that the cryptocurrency market is at the phase of funds consolidating, as is often the case in difficult times. The undisputed beneficiary is Bitcoin, whose market share has almost doubled since February. While the top 10 altcoins struggle to duplicate the dynamics of the BTCUSD, 2nd and 3d tens look more and more on the sideway of the investor’s focus. This is easily explained by the fact that the market of cryptocurrencies is considered as an investment, where leaders receive the main attention and, as a consequence, investors’ money. This also explains the scrupulousness of Bitcoin in following the tech analysis signals and ignoring the news.

Hopes of Facebook’s attempts to launch its cryptocurrency support the optimism of market participants. Even if the final product is worse than the initial high-profile plans, the momentum for the entire sector should not be underestimated.

In addition, Telegram should launch its blockchain by the end of the year. It is possible that the launch of these products will return the interest of serious players who will monitor the potential of the projects, not just the signals of tech analysis.
