The introductory chapter’s preview shared by Lee illustrates a brief assessment of 2018. According to Fundstrat, the said assessment has brought a lot of disappointment.
The Negativity around the ecosystem
The analysts add that the negative headwinds, such as the initial coin offering (ICO) post-hangover, adverse regulatory developments, and excessive exuberance have shadowed some of the crypto’s achievements, including the launch of the Lightning Network and wallet growth.
The report further asserts that the situation is slowly starting to change in 2019. While it is still too early to talk about mass adoption, cryptocurrency prices might make a visible recovery:
“Is 2019 the mainstream breakout year? Nope. But that is not necessary for crypto prices to eventually bottom in 2019, and by the end of 2019, we expect prices to be staging a visible recovery.”
The report points out the expected weakening of the United States dollar, will be one of the first reason behind Bitcoin (BTC) price recovery. The analysts also assert that the emerging market equities will outperform U.S. stocks and bonds, which in turn, create a crypto friendly environment.
Furthermore, the level of participation from the institutional investments will also see an increase by 2019, majorly due to the entry of custody solutions and over-the-counter (OTC) trading. This much-awaited event will contribute to the crypto price recovery. Fundstrat also mentions Binance’s recent decision to support credit card crypto purchases and that it will stimulate the overall interest in the ecosystem.
Coincidentally, the reports’ release was alongside the market recovery that started Friday, Feb. 8. Bitcoin managed to break the $3,600 price point and stayed afloat for three days in a row, at the time of the writing. As for other currencies, they observed double-digit gains on that day.
