Other noticeable outliers includes EOS, which saw a gain of 4.13% after experiencing a gloomy week, both Bitcoin SV (BSV) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) lost 2%, and Tezos (XTZ) which surged by 15.42%, largely attributed to the announcement made by Huobi Global to support the network.
Investment director at AJ Bell, Ruis Mould, while discussing with Market Watch’s assistant market’s director, William Watts compared the boom and bust experienced by cryptos in 2017/2018 to the Dotcom boom.
Mould said that the performance of cryptocurrencies all through the year 2018is similar to the ones seen earlier, adding that the market status today will breed cruel bear traps, which will tend to take HODLers of crypto further below.
He then gave an explanation that Nasdaq during its 2003 collapse, on countless occasions, strived hard to break out, but couldn’t achieve this feat. This is not too different from the stints of Bitcoin at $10,000 then to $6200 and now $3500.
