Bitcoin Prices Won’t Stay Down for Long

Bitcoin Prices fell 3.4% to $8,275.21 on Wednesday as markets continued a broader sell-off in the cryptocurrency sector.

That’s creating a buying opportunity for savvy investors. We’ll show you one major reason why in just a second.

We put together this video. Watch it here below.

The price of Bitcoin fell to its lowest levels since April 19. Meanwhile, Bitcoin Cash and EOS (the fourth and fifth largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, respectively) both fell more than 9%.

BitMEX co-founder and CEO Arthur Hayes projected the price of Bitcoin will surge to $50,000 by the end of 2018 during an interview with CNBC. Hayes dismissed the downturn in Bitcoin’s price during the first quarter, but acknowledged that his firm is making money no matter which way it goes as a margin trading platform.

“If it goes up, if it goes down, if you have Bill Gates calling it a fraud… Short it, I don’t care. If you think it’s going to be $1 million in a few months, great, buy it. I still don’t care. We just match trades,” Hayes said.

Here is a recap of the top five cryptocurrencies by market cap as of 9:00 a.m. EST:

BTC prices might be down for the moment, but that’s not going to last. This is because of a new innovation launching on the Bitcoin network soon is going to be a game changer.

Many people are unaware of this: A systems upgrade on the blockchain expected any day now could potentially skyrocket Bitcoin to new highs not seen. The new innovation is called the Bitcoin Lightning Network.
