Key Factors That Brought Bitcoin Back to Life By Cointelegraph



During the first couple of months of 2019, the price of (BTC) stayed put under the $4,000 mark, thereby solidifying fears that the market was indeed in the midst of a long crypto winter. Not only that, but all through 2018, this space witnessed the simultaneous collapse of around 2,000 cryptocurrencies — which lost around 80% of their combined market cap.

Additionally, it can be seen that over the course of 2018, the general perception of the crypto sector was greatly tarnished thanks to a number of scams and illegal actions that caused investors to lose a whole lot of money (estimated to be worth millions of dollars). As a result, high-profile personalities such as Nouriel Roubini, a Nobel Prize-winning economist, went on record to claim that BTC was the mother of all financial bubbles, thereby causing market panic to spread globally at quite a rapid pace.
