Tron CEO Calls Bitcoin Bottom, Goldman Sachs Says Crypto Will Challenge Banks, and Binance-Backed Token Sale Blasts Off
Tron CEO Calls Bottom
Tron CEO Justin Sun says he thinks Bitcoin has already hit a bottom.
In a new interview with Chinese crypto outlet Huoxing, Sun says the bear market is effectively over, and he expects Bitcoin to stay above $3,000 and move as high as $5,000 in 2019.
“I think it has already hit the bottom, and the bear market is over…
For this year, I think Bitcoin will fluctuate between $3,000 and $5,000. The opportunities for market breakthroughs this year include the explosion of the DApp ecosystem, the large-scale application of the Lightning Network, and the three major opportunities for BitTorrent’s 100 million users to enter the cryptocurrency market.”
