Bitcoin May Fall Under $3k, Pompliano Believes

Founder of Morgan Creek Digital Assets had already made few successful predictions

Bitcoin can wait for a further decline, despite a jump in its price above $ 4,000 last week, said the founder of Morgan Creek Digital Assets and famous commentator Anthony Pompliano in a conversation with CNBC.

I think that in the short term there is an opportunity for further reductions, he said.

In November, Pompliano predicted that Bitcoin would drop to $ 3,000, which happened shortly after that. Since then, the largest cryptocurrency managed to rise above $ 4,200, but fell below $ 3,800 at the time of publication.

Answering a question about the correlation of the cryptocurrency market with the traditional or FAANG shares (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google), also rushing down in recent months, Pompiano said that he does not see the relationship.

Antony definitely agree that the fall in the stock market carries with it a psychological component, noting that the dependence of Bitcoin on the securities market was close to zero. In November, Pompiano predicted a massive closure of cryptocurrency funds.

The Bakkt cryptocurrency platform has named the exact start date for testing Bitcoin futures. The first users will be allowed to test the tool on July 22.

According to Bakkt's Operations Director, Adam White, the platform will attract institutional investors and set new standards for the cryptocurrency market.

White pointed out that the wider distribution of cryptocurrencies, in particular, is hampered by unreliable pricing mechanisms and the likelihood of instantly falling rates.

Along with these problem-solving solutions that are new to digital asset markets, Bakkt also brings all the other features that institutions would expect in a versatile and broadly accessible market, including: block trades; a fee holiday through the end of the year to encourage trading; market maker incentive programs to encourage liquid markets; and integrations with ISVs and regulated brokerage platforms.
