Insights on the Future of Cryptocurrency as 2018 Draws to an End
October 30, 2018 12:59 AM Discuss The idea of cryptocurrencies (digital currencies that are cryptographically encrypted) has been moving around in the academic circles since the 1970s. The idea, however, took on form and shape with the arrival of Bitcoin in 2009. Over the last 9 years, Bitcoin has grown on to be disruptive in the fields of monetary policy, finance, economics, and e-commerce and it has spawned an industry of more than 2,000 coins, tokens, and altcoins in what is being generally referred to as the cryptocurrency market. Interestingly, the cryptocurrency market peaked last year when the price of Bitcoin rallied more than 1400% to $19,000 and the market cap of the cryptocurrency market skyrocketed to almost $700B. However, in the year-to-date period, the trading price of Bitcoin has crashed about 53% to about $6,500 and the market cap of the crypto market has declined more than 56% to $209B.
