Billionaire Mike Novogratz Says Bitcoin At $30,000 Is Unlikely

Bitcoin price has been a topic of debate since the digital asset first made its entry into the mainstream over a decade ago. With its continued growth, a lot of people have come forward to proffer their predictions for the price of the cryptocurrency both in the long and the short term. One of those is billionaire Mike Novogratz. However, despite being usually bullish on the price of bitcoin, Novogratz does not seem to expect much in the short term. Bitcoin Unlikely To Reach $30,000 Currently, the price of bitcoin is bouncing between the $23,000 and $24,000 level. This has seen a lot of speculation as regards what will happen when the digital asset is able to break out of this rut finally. For many, the recent recovery has led them to believe that there will definitely be a run-up back to $30,000, where the price had fallen from. However, not everyone seems to share this bullish short-term sentiment, and Novogratz is one of those.

However, with bitcoin’s current trend, Novogratz does not expect a recovery. Mainly, he does not expect the asset to see $30,000.

Factors Dragging Down Bitcoin There are a number of things that affects the cryptocurrency market and, by extension, the price of bitcoin. Recently, the news of the United States going into a recession has been the catalyst for the recovery trend, but Novogratz believes that the performance of bitcoin continues to be greatly tied to decisions by the government.

With the current situation, any decision from the Fed has an impact on the digital asset due to its close correlation with the macro markets at the moment. But Novogratz believes that the Fed will stop raising rates, which is expected to have a positive impact on financial markets. Despite not believing that the price of Bitcoin cannot touch $30,000 during this run-up, it has not changed the billionaire’s stance on bitcoin. He has previously stated that the price of the digital asset will grow to $500,000. His company also remains committed to its bitcoin strategy, holding a total of 16,402 BTC, making it the public company with the third-largest bitcoin holding in the world.

CEL Rallies To $2 As Bankruptcy Proceedings Continue, But Rally May Just Be Starting

Celsius (CEL) has been rallying in recent times. The native token of the now bankrupt Celsius Network had taken a nosedive when the company had first filed for bankruptcy, but it seems the time is changing with the recent recovery. As Celsius continues with its proceedings, the price of CEL has shot up over the last week, reaching as high as $2. What Is Behind CEL Recovery? The recovery in CEL’s price has obviously come as a surprise to the market. The altcoin had struggled tremendously before finding its footing once more. But the rally that followed has exceeded expectations on all fronts. After struggling below $1 for the better part of last month, the digital asset has now found some much-needed reprieve. Related Reading: What Is FLOW Blockchain And Why Is The Price Up 100% In The Last 24 Hours? CEL’s price soared about 50% in the last 7 days alone, causing it to touch as high as $2 in the early hours of Tuesday. It has since retraced back down to around $1.80, but the bull trend continues to hold and has triggered speculations around what was causing the increase in price. However, the reason behind the CEL run-up is a simple one of supply and demand. Since Celsius had begun bankruptcy proceedings, it has locked up a large amount of crypto on its platform. Now, the majority of that crypto was being held on the exchange to earn CEL rewards, which is how new supply was introduced into the market. Since all of the cryptos are now frozen, CEL inclusive, and there is no new supply being pumped into the market, it has led to a supply squeeze. CEL price at $1.85 | Source: CELUSD on TradingView.com Simply put, there is now more demand for CEL than there is supply. Celsius is not allowed to put new tokens into the market, which means that the only available tokens are the supply currently in the market. Short sellers are also being forced to close their positions, else, they lose a lot of money in the short squeeze, leaving only the long-term traders and CEL bulls to dominate the market.

Bankruptcy proceedings are known to take years, an example is the Mt Gox case, and with most liquid CEL supply being frozen on the platform for years, it is expected that this will be a prolonged short squeeze. However, not a lot of optimistic price predictions are now emerging for the altcoin due to this reason. Price Estimates from Coinmarketcap show that investors expect the digital asset to hit as low as $0.77 in the month of September.

What Is FLOW Blockchain And Why Is The Price Up 100% In The Last 24 Hours?

Anyone looking at the charts will have seen FLOW due to the incredible rally that its price has been on. The digital asset has gone from being in the shadows to be on the radar of crypto investors after growing more than 100% in a single. However, lesser known is the reason behind this rally. In this article, we take a look at FLOW and what has triggered such an increase in price over the past day. Meta News Is The Catalyst On Thursday, news broke that Meta (formerly known as Facebook) was moving forward with its NFT plans. It was implementing an NFT feature for its sister platform Instagram across 100 countries. The platform had been going deep into the metaverse and NFT space, and the announcement did not shock the market. However, the long-time coming news came with a new player that had previously not been named in the plan.

It went against everyone’s predictions that the social media giant would use one of the leading NFT networks to implement this feature. However, it announced that the FLOW Blockchain would be its official partner to host the NFTs on its blockchain. FLOW trading at $2.7 | Source: FLOWUSD on TradingView.com The news of the announcement quickly circulated, and FLOW blockchain gained more recognition as a result. By the time the day was over, its’ price had already risen more than 100% to be trading above $2.50  as investors flocked to capitalize on this newfound fame. FLOW Continues To Rise It has been a day since the Meta news broke, but FLOW has not declined in any way. The digital asset has risen quickly as it garners more support from the crypto community. At the time the news broke on Thursday, FLOW had been trading at around $1.85. At the time of this writing, it is trading as high as $2.74. This registers as a new two-month high for the digital asset. FLOW blockchain was built by Dapper Labs and launched in September 2019. It has a strong community of supporters, as Dapper Labs had been behind the creation of CryptoKitties back in 2017. When it launched the NBA Top Shot, FLOW blockchain had garnered more attention.

However, Instagram’s popularity may yet make it a top contender. FLOW’s rally has pushed it upwards in the market. It is currently the 29th largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $2.8 billion. This puts it ahead of cryptocurrencies such as ApeCoin, Algorand, and Bitcoin Cash.
