Cryptocurrencies are a relatively new topic of discussion on this blog.
It’s something I never talked about before this year.
However, in early April, I decided to dig in and learn as much as I can.
Like most, I was first attracted to Bitcoin as a store of value given the mass printing by central banks around the world.
But Bitcoin is a small piece of the digital asset movement.
And although I still have a lot to learn, I believe with every fiber of my being that blockchain, decentralized finance, etc. are the future.
As for the next cryptocurrency bull market, I don’t think we’re far away at all.
In fact, according to the TOTAL cryptocurrency market cap, the breakout is already underway.
The cryptocurrency market as a whole broke its multi-year wedge pattern earlier in June.
That former resistance level is now serving as support.
If you saw my recent weekly forex forecast, you know that Ethereum has also broken out of a similar wedge pattern.
I discussed this structure on Saturday:
All of the above aligns with the four-year cycle that has been evident since Bitcoin established itself ten years ago.
In my opinion, assets like Bitcoin, Etherem, and others are coming out of an accumulation/distribution phase following a two and a half year correction.
This agrees with the pattern that started ten years.
However, I do want to point out that Bitcoin has been a bit slower in coming out of its accumulation phase.
That isn’t surprising, though.
Bitcoin is in its third era, which means factors like growth decay, and the law of diminishing returns will play a role.
Ethereum, on the other hand, is in its second era.
For that reason and several others that I will write about in the future, I do anticipate that Ethereum will outperform Bitcoin this cycle.
One look at the ETHBTC chart tells me that much.
Ethereum outperformed Bitcoin once before, and it will most likely do it again.
Before I end this post, I want you to understand that I’m treating these cryptocurrencies as investments. I am not trading them.
Also, this is me sharing with you what I’m doing and nothing more. It is not financial advice, and these are not recommendations.
That said, the digital asset space is in its infancy, and I truly believe this is the next iteration of the internet.
For those reasons, I’ve decided to invest in what I believe will play an ever-increasing role in the future.
