3 Reasons Why Bitcoin Market Remains Optimistic Despite $6,000

On CNBC Fast Trader, Kelly outlined three major reasons bitcoin will recover in the mid-term back to its previous support levels at over $10,000:
Negative sentiment from investors signalling imminence of a bottom
Positive development within the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange market
Mt. Gox liquidation of bitcoin postponed to 2019
マウントゴックスの精算が 2019 年まで延期
Given the negative sentiment towards the cryptocurrency market by investors, Kelly explained that the major correction of the cryptocurrency market will likely bottom out in the near future, likely in the next two to three months to begin a mid-term rally in the fourth quarter of this year.
More importantly, Kelly stated that the Japanese government’s move to tighten regulations, clean up the cryptocurrency market, and legitimize the Japanese cryptocurrency sector is a positive development for the long-term, as it would prevent major hacking attacks like the Coincheck security breach and allow investors in the public market to gain trust in local exchanges.
Throughout 2018, several Mt. Gox sell-offs of tens of thousands of bitcoin led the market to crash, preventing BTC from gaining momentum at certain periods.
Kelly emphasized that the delay of Mt. Gox bitcoin sell-off until early 2019 is an optimistic factor to consider, as a major factor to a potential market sell-off has been eliminated, at least in the mid-term.
