Long-term expectations

Although it

is unpredictable to estimate what will happen with the price of Bitcoin

in the short term, many analysts and enthusiasts seem inclined to think that the digital currency is projected to new record highs, suggesting that perhaps by the end of this year or before we can see prices above USD $ 60,000 per unit despite the volatility present in the market.cado.

Let’s keep in mind that during the past month of May Bitcoin recorded the highest values throughout its history, this after trading above USD $64,000 at a time of great expectations among investors. However, due to Tesla’s refusal to receive payments with the digital currency because of the high carbon emissions and the announcements made by the Chinese government, the price of the digital currency plummeted and derived quite remarkable losses in the short / medium term.

Although this type of fluctuations are to be expected for those who have more experience in this ecosystem, several reports pointed out that the sales occurred mainly among less experienced investors, who opted to exit the digital currency to mitigate losses amid the uncertainty seen in the market.

But there were others who took advantage of the lows seen at that time and invested their capital in Bitcoin, deriving today gains of more than 37% in the last three months. At the same time, there are many enthusiasts and recognized figures who continually say that the digital currency is projected to much higher values, among which stands out the CEO of MicroStrategy, Michael Saylor, who says that whenever there is the opportunity they will acquire more BTC.

Cardano also sees a slight drop

The other coin that stands out for this August 24th is ADA Cardano, which despite the fall still maintains prices and is quoted per unit at around USD $2.76.

Let’s keep in mind that during yesterday afternoon the digital currency got quite close to the USD $3 per unit barrier. Although what happens today could be interpreted as a correction, there are still many expectations about its price ahead of September 12, when the next update of its network will take place and will mark the arrival of smart contracts to the Cardanoecosystem.

Main altcoins down on August 24

While Bitcoin y Cardano are experiencing some corrections, most of the major cryptocurrencies are also posting slight declines for the morning of this August 24.

In that sense, coins like Ethereum (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), XRP, <a href=”https://www.diariobitcoin.com/glossary/dogecoin/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Dogecoin (DOGE), Polkadot (DOT), Uniswap (UNI), Chainlink (LINK), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC ) and many others are down with drops between 2% and 6% at the time of writing.

But the surprise of the day comes from Terra (LUNA ), a token that for this morning is up and trading at around USD $32.7, capitalizing on gains of 15.3% this morning.
