Futures Traders Jim Luorio and Scott nations discuss the fundamentals, and technical levels to watch out for in the CNBC futures now segment.

On the Fundamentals front, trader Scott Nations sounded apprehensive of the “weak fundamentals” that could hinder the growth of Bitcoin as an asset.

Scott Nations Said, ” I don’t particularly like it… I don’t see what fundamentals would drive the price.”

He also emphasized on the fact that private blockchain projects like JPM coins are highly unlikely to push the price of Bitcoin up, as they do not add “reflected glory for Bitcoin.”

However, according to Nations, Bitcoin has strong fundamentals when the demand for Gold Futures is taken into account. As the demand for Gold Futures has gone down significantly.

Scott said, ” No one seems to want gold anymore “
