Former MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor asserted in a recent interview with Bloomberg that Bitcoin is destined for a protracted period of market dominance, possibly double its present value.
He claims that this rise would mostly be brought on by the United States’ evolving regulatory landscape, which he predicts will eventually lead to a market dominated by Bitcoin.
Stablecoins, crypto derivatives, and tokens will become less popular, according to Saylor, who claims that Bitcoin is the only widely accepted digital good that regulators are prepared to accept. His prediction is based on the idea that as regulators tighten their control over the cryptocurrency market, many crypto-assets will either be outlawed or lose their relevance, leaving Bitcoin to command attention.
Saylor believes that since there will be less rivalry and muddle in the market, this inevitable sector contraction will be extremely beneficial to BTC.
Since the beginning of the year, BTC’s market share has already increased from 40% to 48%, he pointed out.
Saylor believes that the business models of cryptocurrency exchanges will be considerably strengthened by this rise in Bitcoin dominance. He contends that a tenfold increase in the price of Bitcoin will guarantee their profitability notwithstanding any potential restrictions these platforms might encounter in a more stringent regulatory environment. Because of legislative clarity, he anticipates a flood of institutional capital flooding into Bitcoin.
Bitcoin’s Combined Market Cap with Ethereum Surpasses 80%
80.5% of the overall cryptocurrency market value is currently made up of the market caps for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and stablecoins combined. The market capitalization is at somewhere around $1.05 trillion.
The price of altcoins significantly dropped last week. This happened as a result of litigation the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) brought against cryptocurrency exchanges Binance, Binance.US, and Coinbase, classifying a number of tokens as securities. The value of some of the tokens cited in the cases, including Binance’s BNB, Cardano’s ADA, and Solana’s SOL, dropped by up to 30% over the course of the week.
The research report from K33 shows that the legal issue can continue for a very long time. It further stated,
“Funds will likely retort to a hands-off approach due to excess compliance work and overall low trading volumes, disincentivizing market participants to engage. This could limit liquidity further onwards and lead to a prolonged slow market.”
