Decred Co-Founder Explains Rationale behind Bitcoin Bull and Bear Cycles
Bitcoin (BTC) after its launch has been in existence for over 12 years. The king coin has witnessed several bull and bear cycles, each greater than the last. According to Decred co-founder Jake Yocom-Piatt, what drives these cycles’ lies within the human brain. He said: “Bitcoin’s bull and bear cycles are functions of generic human psychology, attention spans, and its deterministic and diminishing issuance”.
Yocom-Piatt also explains the rate of supply of Bitcoin which is constantly decreasing as a percentage of the total circulation. He said: “Bull runs occur when demand begins to outstrip supply, driving up the price, which gets the attention of myopic investors. After a certain amount of time, these myopic investors’ attention span for a bull market fades, and we revert to a bear market. With each bull market, the overall awareness of Bitcoin grows, sowing the seeds for the next Bull Run.”
Meanwhile, Bitcoin is a range-bound between $16,400 and $17,800. BTC price is retracing after reaching a high of $17,800. According to the Fibonacci tool, BTC ought to have reversed after reaching level 1.272 or $18,190 high. The crypto will make a deeper correction if the lower price range is breached.
