"Now it's a good time to invest in Bitcoin (BTC)"
As the year comes, a number of crypto dealers and investors have tried to figure out what is expected for Bitcoin (BTC) in 2019. Paul Veradittakit, a partner of the San Francisco-based Pantera Capital, has told CoinTelegraph that Now is It is an optimal time to buy in Bitcoin (BTC).
In a recent Youtube interview with CoinTelegraph, Veradittakit, a prominent venture capitalist and advisor to Blockfolio and Icon, has argued that from a short to medium term, investing in BTC would be logical at current prices. The Pantera partner is not the only trader who insists on expressing such a feeling, as a number of crypto dealers have claimed that traders will kick off in the coming years so as not to buy the BTC at $ 4000.
Veradite kits that touched the state of the cryptosphere noted that altcoins generally remained highly correlated with Bitcoin (except Ethereum and XRP). Regardless of the long-term crypto entrepreneur finding that with the markets low, today is still a "good time to buy cryptographic baskets" and adds that diversification in this dynamic industry would be beneficial. He added:
"Putting all your eggs in a basket is probably not a good strategy. So either investing in an index or investing in a bunch of them [altcoins] that you are really passionate or even go to a fund manager [to run your holdings is logical]. "
The Pantera partner's statements are warmly on the heels of a recent report by Ethereum World News on Tone Vay's thoughts on the same subject. As previously reported, Vays CoinTelegraph reported that 2018's bear market is "significantly different from what happened in 2014 or 2015." Specifically, the trader, formerly of JP Morgan, noted that this time, when BTC rises, altcoin bubble will not come back. "
Vays hinted at the fact that the industry has already preemptively indicated that altcoins are not coming back, as evidenced by the Bitcoin Cash debacle (he called it an "implosion") and other minor events that highlighted the irrelevance of these alternative coins.
Jimmy Song, a leading Bitcoin teacher and developer, repeated his peer points, saying that many "crappy projects (altcoins)" are likely to be in their deaths, and will eventually be purged from this nourishing ecosystem. Song that touches on why this is significant explained that there has been a "lot of malinvestment in this room", making the removal of fraudulent projects positive for bona fide coins.
But although there are contrasting views on this topic, both sides have their disturbances. Vays and Song, without any fault, entered the industry, as only Bitcoin (essentially) was built, and built their investment talks around the flagship crypto competition. And while Pantera's founder is due early for cryptos, the fund actively invests in all-centric platforms, products and services such as Abra, Brave, Civic, Ripple and ZCash to name a few.
2019 will be a good year
Veraditti kit continued to touch what is next for the cryptosphere in 2019. Pantera insider first noted that Bakkit's launch, which was recently smoked to be delayed, will be an integral part of the story forward. he explained that if the crypto market is to return in full swing, the institutions must have a viable way to foray into this industry. Backing is, of course, a viable fiat ramp supported by the Intercontinental Exchange, Starbucks and Microsoft.
The investor noted that he expects 2019 to appear in scalability projects, such as the Lynnet network and other minor efforts. But interestingly, Veradittakit explained that he does not expect any of these ventures to compete with Ethereum. Along with a push for scalability, the prominent crypto administrator also noted that he expects significant institutions to acquire and invest capital in startups, especially as talent continues to flow to this industry.
