Here you have two different possibilities on how bitcoin can behave in future.
I am and I guess I am not the only one. Have a look at the picture:
The chart shows the sudden increase of the price followed by sudden return to the same lavel. For me - the only reason for that is someone buying a huge amount of bitcoins by one transaction. And what do you think about it, guys?
Sentiment driven markets are determined by periods of UP, DOWN or FLAT movement recurring in cycles, and at this moment the general mood in Crypto Currencies is bearish/indecisive. The price "changing few bucks up and down" is a tiny representation of a bigger picture. Last year the price went ahead of its appropriate value, driven by hype, gox manipulation, china, whatever. Now Bitcoin is finding its actual value, and once this is done a new sentiment cycle may occur.
Has anything changed in the fundamentals of Bitcoin technology? No, in contrary, the infrastructure is getting better every day. So ask yourself if Bitcoin is going to be here in 1 year, is there a chance the price could go to double, even single digits when there are actually more people using it than a year ago?
