    A small group of disgruntled people who feel left out of Bitcoin’s meteoric rise complain that Bitcoin’s developers add new features to its basic tool kit “too slowly”, and that innovation on it has stagnated.

    The cryptocurrency market is sadly tethered to Bitcoin’s price. Bitcoin’s price is probably at the mercy of large-scale market manipulation and cryptic factors that even the crypto frauds and “decentralization” pretenders can’t simulate...

    With widespread anonymity in cryptocurrency markets, manipulation can easily arise. That is, when you don’t have clear disclosure of buyers and sellers, you open the doors for perennial problems of whales and market manipulation to occur...

    As many people are aware, when doing business in China, the number one thing you must be well informed about is government policy; it is even truer in the cryptocurrency world. Last September, the Chinese government made it abundantly clear that they are not crypto friendly when they rolled out policies banning cryptocurrency exchanges and ICOs...

    ...This is going to be a bit of speculation too, but during the FIFA World Cup 2018, there is a fair chance that Bitcoin value will soar to new heights again.
