From a bold prediction of Bitcoin to a rebuttal of the creator of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin, to a new way of exchanging XRP and Bitcoin Cash, here are some of the stories that break in the world of Crypto.
Tone Vays, a former Wall Street dealer and vice president of JP Morgan Chase, says he expects a Bitcoin bull run in 2019, although he does not believe the altcoins will join the party.
In a new interview with Cointelegraph, Vays declares 2018 the end of the altcoins.
"I think the biggest event for 2018 should be the falling price not only of Bitcoin but of the entire cryptographic resource space, but for me this is significantly different from what happened in 2014 or in the 15th. that this time, the bubble will not return, I think it will be the big difference.I think that the most critical event is the fact that this was the bubble altcoin.I do not expect the altcoins to come back. "
Vays believes that "the implosion of Bitcoin Cash", which led to the creation of Bitcoin SV, a fork of Bitcoin Cash, "has shown how irrelevant those altcoins are".
"I'm really enjoying this 2018 for the implosion of the altcoin space".
As for Bitcoin, Vays says it's all but dead.
"The 2019 marking will mark the end of the Bitcoin bear market and the start of another Bitcoin bull market – this time, with side chains, downsizing, privacy, and I do not see the hour. . "
Vays, who is a trader of traditional derivatives and Bitcoin consultant, is a well-known supporter of irreducible Bitcoin. He says he believes the next bull run will probably come in the second half of next year.
XRP and Bitcoin Cash
Cryptographic exchange based on San Francisco Kraken says it is adding the trading margin for XRP and Bitcoin Cash, along with a word of warning.
"Note that BCH and XRP are not collateral, which means that it is not possible to open margin positions relative to the value of the BCH or XRP balances, which is why it is necessary to maintain adequate balances of other collateral currencies to maintain marginal positions. Be very careful when exchanging collateral currencies for BCH or XRP when you have open margin positions, as this will reduce your equity and could lead to marginalization of marginal positions. "
