The NYSE Bitcoin Index (.NYXBT) Advantages to a Cryptocurrency Market Pullback?
In spite of predictions that the cryptocurrency market is nothing more than a bubble waiting to burst, for the time being the space has refused to crash completely. Indeed, although the total market cap of the digital currency space is only a fraction of what it was just months ago, with major players like bitcoin falling by more than 50% in the past six months, it appears that there is still life in the cryptocurrency space nonetheless. The notoriously volatile market has seen its share of ups and downs, and the current pullback appears to be the largest to date. While there are obvious downsides to a pullback of this type, there may also be advantages for some investors, too.
