The Cryptocurrency Market Boom

Cryptocurrency is a founding stone that brought the evolution of blockchain technology and then led to the emergence of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), Web3, and the metaverse. A big milestone for the cryptocurrency market was achieved when Bitcoin (BTC) touched the $1,000 mark on November 27, 2013. Earlier in 2013, Bitcoin (BTC) was added as a word to the Oxford English Dictionary, which defined Bitcoin as “a digital currency in which transactions can be performed without the need for a central bank.” Bitcoin (BTC) started to get wider recognition worldwide when the price of BTC almost touched $20,000 in December 2017. The 2017 cryptocurrency market boom changed everything in the world of digital currency.

The crypto bull market started in May 2017, when Bitcoin’s price soared over $2,000 for the first time and crossed $3,000 just a few weeks later. At that time, the market forces also showed subsequent turbulence, including BTC’s price dropping by $300 within one hour of the trading session on June 12, 2017. However, the market forces kept the Bitcoin price on the rise. Perhaps one of the major developments was the Wall Street analysts entering the BTC price analysis game. Goldman Sachs analyst Sheba Jafari predicted Bitcoin to cross $3,600 which further led to forecasts from other notable analysts. Bitcoin reached the $20,000 price mark on December 17, 2017, making history in the cryptocurrency market. A few days later, a drop of 30% wiped off billions of dollars from the total cryptocurrency market capitalization, making it one of the biggest market corrections in history. Since then, cryptocurrency has been a highly volatile market with massive pumps and dumps, subsequently.

Crypto Market Outlook

If we look at the one-year movement of Bitcoin (BTC), the crypto deity is following an upward trend. The crypto market follows the trend of Bitcoin as it still leads the market sentiment. On August 25, Bloomberg reported that JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou mentioned that there is some positive sentiment building around the crypto market based on open interest in CME Bitcoin futures contracts. Based on that, Panigirtzoglou believes that there is a limited downside for crypto markets over the near term.

Bitcoin (BTC) continues to trade at about 60% above since the start of 2023, surpassing other well-performing assets like technology stocks. Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at around the $26,700 price mark, as of 6:23 a.m. Eastern Time on September 21. At the same time, BTC is almost up by 40% over the last 12 months. Ethereum (ETH), the second largest crypto asset, is trading at $1,608, up by 20% over the last 12 months. The total cryptocurrency market capitalization on coinmarketcap.com stands at $1.06 trillion, with Bitcoin’s dominance of 49.2% and Ethereum’s dominance of 18.3%, at the time of writing on September 21.

The cryptocurrency market has continuously grown despite the regulatory and market upheavals. Crypto is getting more adoption with its existence in the NFTs, Web3, and the metaverse. According to a study from IMARC Group, the global cryptocurrency market size touched $2 trillion in 2022 and it is expected to reach $4 trillion by 2028, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 11.7% between 2023 and 2028.
