Bitcoin: 2015’s Prominent Winner


Investors had a rough year with no new US stock records and a 30% drop in energy prices. Gold and precious stones plunged nearly 10%. Contrarily, unconsolidated stock reports exhibited huge pops, a favorite among cryptographers as the year’s most efficient unconsolidated asset.

Since the beginning of the year, bitcoin has increased by approximately 37% in value relative to the US dollar. It indicates China as a potential inheritor of the global monetary system. According to the CoinDesk composite price index, the cryptocurrency progressed from about $313 to about $430 since the beginning of the year.

The digital currency started this year with an unsteady footing. Bitcoin fell below $175 in mid-January, but after a rocky start, the digital currency soared in October.

The reason is unknown for bitcoin’s progress during the last three months of 2015.

Observers told CNBC last November that the Winklevoss twins’ exchange launch and the Digital Currency Group’s public announcement of funding from Bain and MasterCard may have caused the 70% one-month increase. Speculators’ FOMO, or fear of missing out, may have boosted modestly traded assets.

The CEO of bitcoin trading firm Genesis Global Trading remarked that the asset’s rapid expansion over the last years.

The funding of a Bitcoin-related start-up has also helped establish the sector’s legitimacy and the underlying technology. In addition to digital tokens, institutional investors can buy Bitcoin investment trusts.

O’Connor believes that their eagerness to test the water spiked dramatically, seeing it as an experimental investment. Moreover, financial firms frequently visit his office, showing interest in learning how to trade bitcoin. They are searching for classes for investments in non-correlated assets. An increasing interest in technology and low fees for daily currency in nations with limited remittance and financial resources is also a significant development, he added.

This option came up during the Greek summer crisis. A growing Eurozone agreement prompted many headlines regarding bitcoin’s propensity to annoy its existing audience.

It’s unclear if the real fruition originated from prophecies. Still, the investors see a positive spot boosting the awareness of bitcoin’s potential during press coverage.


Conclusively, traders think that cryptocurrency covered Mt. Gox, the failed exchange that rapidly shattered in 2014, publicly saying it lost 850,000 bitcoins, which is worth $365 million today. The shortage of disastrous news may have simply improved bitcoin.

Bitcoin’s plunge from above $1,150 at the end of 2013 to $200 in January this year marks a “long winter” for the asset, said Tuur Demeester, editor-in-chief of Adamant Research and an economist. The story of 2015 was bottoming out digital assets, making way for a rise in revaluation.

Demeester added that bitcoin’s fall from its highs was because of “bubblicious” 2013 investments that received some help from Mt. Gox. For companies, being over-leveraged resulted in prices devaluing for a considerable period of time.

As for 2016, He proposed that cryptocurrencies have the potential to take another leap forward as new confident investors seek the right market value. Demeester ended his statement with a warning, saying that you will never predict when you will be surprised with bitcoin.
