Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Still Could Be The ‘Next Big Thing’
Although many cynics, including Warren Buffet, Jamie Dimon, and the rest of the skeptics in that Wall Street posse, would claim that Bitcoin is inevitably going to bite the dust, this might not be the case. More specifically, in the current context of the embattled macroeconomy, some argue that decentralized money’s value proposition is as apparent as ever, if not more so than normal.
Speaking to TD Ameritrade, Wall Street hotshot Travis Kling explained that there’s a non-zero chance that Bitcoin could live up to everyone’s expectations, becoming a globally-secured transaction settlement layer that is immutable, decentralized, censorship-resistant, and cost- and time-effective. Kling, the incumbent chief investment officer of Ikigai, added that as governments continue to enlist the use of questionable fiscal decisions, that gives Bitcoin a sort of inevitability, citing quantitative easing and sovereign debt concerns.
It could also be argued that non-BTC cryptocurrencies and related technologies also have some sort of inevitability too, like what Burniske was touching on. But, this facet of the nascent industry has yet to get fully fleshed out, as cryptocurrencies are rather embryonic on the world stage. Regardless, more and more technologists and futurists are coming to the conclusion that the future will be rife with blockchain technologies, digital assets, and peer-to-peer systems for all society asks or wants.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 64.9167. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 52.99. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 8 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -85. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 8 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 5 period(s) ago.
