This gain could be much higher if US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has not rejected application for a Bitcoin exchange traded fund. So how did Bitcoin behaved in third quarter? Let’s have a review of its performance.
Crypto in July 2018
On July 25, Bitcoin jumped to a two month high of $8,507. However this rise was short lived and was dropped to $8,000 on July 27, thanks to SEC’s second rejection of the Winklevoss brothers’ application for a bitcoin ETF. The leading crypto currency had a 21 percent gain in July.
Crypto in August 2018
Bitcoin fell more on August 14, to $5,859 but due to investors immediate move, it rise back to $7,000 by the end of the month. During this month, a rotation of money out of high risk alternative crypto currency into Bitcoin was witness, which further rose Bitcoin coin dominance rate up to 50 percent for the first time since Dec 19, 2017. Despite US SEC disapproved several other ETF proposals in the second half of this month, BTC survived as safe zone for the investors.
Crypto in September 2018
BTC experience rise in the first half of the week and reached till $7,500 and that lead to prediction that it will rise high above $8,500 by the end of September’s which it couldn’t achieve but still a stability around $6,000 set a new positive trend in the market which is considered very volatile and unpredictable. Many billionaire investors like Novogratz and Fundstrat’s Tom Lee are convinced that Bitcoin market is experiencing seller fatigue and has reached a bottom around $6,000. However, a revesrsal is expected only after BTC has found acceptance above the lower price high of $7,429.
