A well-known, conservative crypto analyst gave a bullish commentary about the price of Bitcoin. According to a YouTuber, further proliferation of the digital asset will cause a steady rise of BTC to a million dollars. On a YouTube video, InvestAnswers signaled that BTC is approaching diminishing returns. Diminishing return is when an asset gets to a point where increased future investment yields less profit. The crypto analyst said that BTC yields investors five times less profit every new market cycle in comparison to the previous one.

They cited that the value of networks grows as the number of participants increases, according to Metcalfe’s law. If Bitcoin follows the trend of disruptive networks like cellphones and the internet, applying Metcalfe’s law projects a bullish case scenario for bitcoin. In that vein, a modest consideration of BTC’s future price will put it at over a million dollars by the year 2030. The host made it clear that this prediction was strictly based on the scientific possibility that Metcalfe’s law holds for the number one cryptocurrency in the world. It is, however, not subject to wishful thinking. According to the analyst, the bitcoin digital assets’ adoption follows the historical patterns of preceding technologies. Quite like InvestAnswers, there have been several sightings of multiple users across the internet, supporting the future appreciation of bitcoin’s price. Crypto Market Cycles Since speculation says bitcoin is still bullish in the long run, many are looking forward to taking advantage of the next market cycle. The market cycle explains the ebb and flow of a market. Usually, new markets have a slow start. They pick off from a point where people show little or no interest. But as interest in the asset starts to increase, demand rises, and its price starts to inflate as a result. A complete market cycle has four phases: accumulation, markup, distribution, and markdown.

Investors become satisfied with their returns. And then sell off the asset causing tremendous sell pressure. Therefore, the price begins to drop. After one market cycle ends, the next begins shortly. Bitcoin Price Action Bitcoin has roughly ranged between $22,000 and $18,000 for most of the 3rd quarter of this year. Investors are keenly eyeing the condition of the broader market as a go-ahead to pump funds into risky assets like bitcoin. Featured image from Pixabay and chart from TradingView.com

Twitter threads from last week reveal a series of heated arguments between Cardano founder and Ethereum’s co-founder, and Vitalik Buterin. Amid several backlashes caused by lapses in the Ethereum Upgrade, the co-founders argue over the execution of the POS consensus mechanism. A lot has transpired within the past days after the Ethereum upgrade. Also, there are more like the Shanghai upgrade to come. On Saturday, 24 September, Evan Van Ness, a Web3 investor, expressed his opinion regarding the Ethereum merge. Van asserted that the last ten days after the merge are evidence the merge should have happened earlier. Related Reading: ETH Struggles To Break Past $1,300 Resistance – Back To $1K? Buterin seeing Van Ness’s tweet, agreed with him, saying they should have implemented an NXT-like chain based on POS. Charles Hoskinson Claims Ethereum POS Is a Bad Design Hoskinson joined the Buterin-Van Ness conversation, saying there should be a Snow White protocol to ensure faster POS migration. Hoskinson’s opinion didn’t go well with the others, which resulted in an argument between him, Van Ness, and other Ethereum developers. Snow White is a protocol that provides end-to-end proof of security for POS systems. Hoskinson has been an advocate of Snow White for many years. Hoskinson claimed his idea for the Ethereum network’s technical upgrade in 2014 was better than the present upgrade. Van Ness recalled that Hoskinson got removed from Ethereum due to his bad behavior and lack of notable technical contributions. Hoskinson accused Ethereum developers of ignoring Ouroboros in the last five years. Ouroboros is a secure proof-of-stake blockchain and the first peer-review researched based protocol. He also said the present version of the proof-of-stake upgrade is not well-designed. In their argument, Hudson Jameson, Ethereum’s core developer, responded to Hoskinson’s Ouroboros implementation claims. Jameson told Hoskinson that Ethereum developers hated Cardano because of his actions and behaviors. I guess Charles forgot about his Reddit history and how much he shit on Ethereum as he was building Cardano. Additionally, Vitalik did review Ouroboros a while ago. Ethereum devs aren't wanting to look at Cardano because of your attitude and actions as the face of Cardano. https://t.co/QB3QYRKkm5 pic.twitter.com/daX56FfwGv — Hudson Jameson (@hudsonjameson) September 26, 2022 The Ethereum developer also spoke of Hoskinson’s ill-treatment of Ethereum while he created Cardano. He also said Vatalik had reviewed Ouroboros. Charles Hoskinson On Success Of Cardano Hoskinson boasted that Cardano is not dependent on cryptocurrency to succeed and that they’ve grown to billions without mass adoption. Although similar arguments are not new between Hoskinson and the Ethereum developers, it shows how detached from each other the two blockchain’s have become. Both Ethereum network and Cardano are in the middle of intensive upgrades, but Hoskinson is known for his bullish opinions on his previous projects.

Data from Glassnode suggests Bitcoin is currently in the historical bear market to bull market transition period. Bitcoin Correlation Between Price And Supply In Profit Has Recently Been Below 0.75 As per a recent report by Glassnode, the BTC correlation between the price and the supply in profit generally observes multiple drops below 0.75 during transitional periods. The “supply in profit” is an indicator that measures the percentage of the total Bitcoin supply that’s holding some profit right now. The metric works by looking at the on-chain history of each coin to see what price it was last moved at. If this previous selling price is less than the current BTC value for any coin, then that particular coin has some unrealized profits at the moment. Related Reading: Bitcoin aSOPR Profit-Loss Junction Continues To Act As Resistance The correlation between the crypto’s price and its supply in profit tells us whether the two metrics have been moving in the same direction or not. Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in this Bitcoin correlation over the history of the crypto: The value of the metric has been low multiple times in recent days | Source: Glassnode’s Market Pulse Whenever the correlation is positive, it means the price and the supply in profit are both moving in the same direction. On the other hand, negative values imply they are going opposite ways. As you can see in the above graph, Bitcoin has historically had values above 0.9 for a majority of the time during each of the previous price cycles. However, during periods of transition between bull markets and bear markets (as well as vice versa), the indicator usually observes multiple drops below 0.75. According to the report, these deviations occur in the case of bear to bull transitions because at late bear market stages, sellers turn exhausted while the remaining investors become reluctant to move their funds out of frustration, thus decreasing the correlation between price and supply in profit. Related Reading: Number Of Bitcoin Addresses Sending BTC To Exchanges Continues To Drop And during the opposite transitions, the supply in profit generally surges to almost 100% (as the price rises to a new ATH), thus diminishing any correlation with the price. Recently, the indicator has observed multiple plunges below the 0.75 threshold, suggesting that Bitcoin is currently in the historical bear to bull transition zone. BTC Price At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price floats around $19.1k, down 4% in the last seven days. Over the past month, the crypto has lost 10% in value.

While a $10 forecast might seem like a reach to the majority of the community, an analyst is already setting up conditions for a $13 price target.
The currency of the blockchain-powered online payment platform, XRP, has gained almost 60% in the past week. After briefly dipping to $0.34 five days ago, the token climbed back and traded around $0.52 this morning. Crypto influencer Ben Armstrong claims to know the reason behind this continuous climb amid the current general crypto bear market. The multiple-crypto holder shared his two cents about the state of events with his 800k plus followers on Twitter yesterday. Related Reading: Maker DAO Shows Bullish Sentiment After A While, Eyes $800? Influencer Believes Impending Close To Ripple-SEC Case Is Responsible According to Armstrong, multiple factors are causing Ripple’s insane price surge. However, he can confidently trace one primary reason to the ongoing SEC court battle with the sixth strongest crypto. The influencer tweeted that SEC has given up on its 2-year struggle of trying to prove XRP is a security. As of this week, the Ripple community “can be pretty confident the worst-case scenario is a fine,” the tweet reads. The last weekend saw both parties in the ongoing case filing for summary judgment. In other words, Ripple and SEC believe enough evidence has been provided for a verdict outside a court case. They wait for Judge Torres’ decision supporting one side or the other based on already available evidence. A court battle that started way over in 2020 might soon be coming to an end. Ripple And XRP Community Expect A Favorable Verdict Like Ben Armstrong, the Ripple community and Ripple Labs are expectant of a favorable ruling. If that happens, XRP will not be considered a Security but a digital asset, just as Ripple intended. Another crypto influencer predicted that if this happens, it will be the needed boost the bearish crypto market needs. David Gokhshtein tweeted that the crypto market will go parabolic should XRP win this case. He and Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple’s CEO, believe a win for XRP would stamp cryptos stand with regulation. Consequently, it would increase investors’ faith in the ailing asset. Whale Movements On XRP Blockchain Also Partially Responsible For Price Boost Another reason for the surge in XRP seems to be whale movements on the platform. On-chain analytics firm, Sentiment data reveal an increase in whale transactions on the Ripple blockchain. Furthermore, the Whale Alert crypto tracker revealed multiple anonymous transfers of significant amounts of XRP in the past week. Data showed that a 261 million XRP transfer and another 582 million XRP transaction took place. Ripple was involved in both transactions, moving 80,000,000 of the tokens externally. In total, close to a billion tokens exchanged hands in whale transactions last week. Related Reading: Can WAVES Flow Back From Its Low Ebb And Reclaim $4.6? These two factors mentioned above are mainly responsible for the continuous climb of XRP tokens over the last week. One can only wait to see if the XRP community’s optimism is indeed rightly placed and that ripple will indeed win the case. At the time of writing, XRP is currently trading around $0.48 after briefly testing $0.52 earlier today per Coinmarketcap data. Featured image from Pixabay and chart from TradingView.com
