Increment of Bitcoin Dominance to 46% is a Sign of Investor Confidence in the BTC Rally

The King of Crypto looks like it has its eyes set on the $8,000 value mark with its current momentum this Monday morning. Bitcoin (BTC) managed to maintain its volumes during the weekend. The concern by many traders was that BTC volumes are known to decrease during the weekends. But BTC managed to maintain its value to end Sunday at $7,525. The same Bitcoin is now valued at $7,674 at coinmarketcap.com with some exchanges such as Bitfinex witnessing a BTC value of $7,820.

The increment of the BTC dominance from 36% to 46% in a period of less than 3 months is a sign that there is investor confidence in the digital asset. During the same time period, the price of Bitcoin saw its lowest levels on the 29th of June when it was valued at around $5,800. Bitcoin has since increased in value by 31%.

The investor confidence in BTC can be attributed to the following factors as Ehereum World News has highlighted over the past week or two:

  1. Coinbase Custody service attracting a hedge fund worth $20 Billion
  2. Several market leaders calling for Bitcoin to move higher, including longtime BTC bear at BK Asset Management, Boris Schlossberg
  3. BTC having hit the bottom of the year
  4. Thomas Lee assuring that the time to buy Bitcoin is now
  5. Continual technical analysis
  6. The Bitcoin ETF frenzy
  7. BlackRock investment firm declaring it is exploring blockchain and cryptocurrencies
  8. Other institutional investors
  9. The general mood and feel of crypto enthusiasts who believe the time for a bull run is now

Summing it up, with the new week comes new possibilities for Bitcoin. This is the week many crypto traders expect the King of Crypto to make it to $8,000 and make it higher up to possibly $10,000. The current rally has also resulted in the King of Crypto increasing its dominance in the crypto-markets to 46%. This is a sign of investor confidence in the digital asset moving forward into the second half of 2018.
