(New York)

Despite a very poor three months, there have been increasing amounts of articles arguing that Bitcoin may be a tipping point where it moves higher. However, Bloomberg has published a piece saying it is at a so-called death cross. The cryptocurrency’s 50-day moving average has dropped to its nearest point to its 200-day moving average in nine months, a move which spells doom for technical analysts. If it crosses below the 200-day threshold, it would signal the “death cross”.


FINSUM: While this does seem significant, we would argue that technical analysis is not as relevant in Bitcoin. The reason why being that the fundamentals of the market (e.g. a sound regulatory environment) are unstable, and there is little trading history from which to weigh technical indicators.

Allianz, the global financial firm, says that Bitcoin is worthless and that the bubble is about to burst. While the firm may be better known in its native Europe, Allianz is a major player speaking out against the cryptocurrency. “In our view, its intrinsic value must be zero … A bitcoin is a claim on nobody – in contrast to, for instance, sovereign bonds, equities or paper money – and it does not generate any income stream”, says Allianz, Europe’s largest insurer.


FINSUM: We thought the bitcoin bubble had already burst! Allianz really seems to think it will go to zero. We do not, as we believe it will slowly develop into a digital value store as the regulatory regime surrounding it gets harmonized.

So everyone knows that Bitcoin suffered a huge plunge earlier this year. The fall amounted to around 60% at its peak before stabilizing recently. However, what many are not aware of is how much total trading volume fell during the volatility. While stock market losses are often associated with increasing trading, that did not happen with bitcoin. Volume is stuck at about half its peak from December, and touched its lowest level in two years in February. This has many wondering if the currency is waning in popularity.


FINSUM: This piece was interesting to us because it contrasts with what you hear about the explosion in popularity of cryptos.
