On Wednesday, after a sell-off of several weeks that saw the assets scrambled to launch and turn non-stop, investors in this market have found a much needed relief. In the space of 12 hours, Bitcoin has risen above $ 3,800, setting a maximum of five days at $ 4,375 on the back of an aggressive inflow of buying pressure. And with this move, which saw the aggregate value of all cryptographic assets rise to $ 140 billion, optimists argue that an upward rush, or at least a recovery, is within the reach of this market.
While Bitcoin broke $ 4,200, an alleged level of resistance, naive investors clamored for the worst of the cryptocurrency industry. Aiming to offer his conjecture on the subject, Michael Bucella, partner of BlockTower Capital, an investment company focused on cryptography, made his appearance in CNBC Fast Money, a segment that has incessantly covered cryptocurrencies in recent weeks.

Bitcoin has a lower leg to go
Noting that Crypto's bear cycle is not as dangerous as it sounds, Bucella, a former executive of the Canadian arm of Goldman Sachs, drew attention to his theory of the interaction between "strong hands" and "weak hands" ", the two dominant brands of cryptocurrency investors. BlockTower's partner noted that while it would be fair to assume that weak hands, better known as speculators, are liquidating their holdings to irreducible ones, this last group is not rushing to rise on the installment.
He explained that Crypto's recent liquidity spell, along with market volatility, can be grasped with hard-handed hesitation for the mass purchase of Bitcoin. Although this statement may seem bearish in and of itself, Bucella added that the "cycle of anguish" of the crypto of almost a year is presumably coming to a climax, echoing the cries of analysts that the fund has almost arrived.

The representative of BlockTower, referring to the historical action of the prices of Bitcoin, has continued to underline that the last part of the cryptocurrency markets is normally the most volatile, but of short duration. And while he was reluctant to predict the level at which Bitcoin will end, Bucella explained that when digital assets at the bottom, either $ 2,000, $ 3,000 or more, viable purchase opportunities will be scarce.
The smartest money is moving to Cripto
Citing investment expert strategies, such as the traditional equity legend Howard Marks, the cryptocurrency advocate noted that while waiting for the last Bitcoin capitulation period to be wise, $ 4,200 / coin remains a special deal from a multi-year point of view. And as such, Bucella said that "the smartest money is [still] to come in. "

Expanding what he meant by "smarter money", Bucella drew attention to the remarkable interests that MIT, Harvard, Stanford and Yale have invested in cryptocurrencies and companies maintain this ecosystem. While the CNBC anchor Mellisa Lee drew attention to the fact that these investments are not directly in encrypted business, the guest of Fast Money noted that these games are still bullish, since the aforementioned assets are directly strengthening the cryptocentric infrastructural initiatives.
Speaking specifically of institutional adoption, the recent industry operator noted that for global macro funds, many of which are driven by traditionalists, investing in Bitcoin can be a risky decision, since the global digital heritage was only through a long-term cycle.
However, while he did not seem comfortable in admitting that the risk-off financial entities are not ready to set out on Bitcoin, his comments on the entry of smart money into the cryptocurrency markets are not a comment that should be ignored. And, as seen from the initiatives of TD Ameritrade, Fidelity and Intercontinental Exchange in cryptographic and blockchain technologies, smart money is probably preparing for the imminent opening of doors.
