However, according to crypto expert Willy Woo, the bear market is still here as he shares a detailed analysis on the basis of NVT:

Bitcoin has seen only 3 bear markets in its history**. We are in the third one now. One signal we can use to determine the end of the bear is for the price to cross above its 200 days moving average.”

His concluding statement is, “we are in the middle of the bear season, reminiscing on bulls.”

In the Consensus Singapore 2018 event, the managing director and global head of equity products and alternative investments at CME Group, Tim McCourt said Bitcoin futures are not responsible for the slump in crypto prices this year adding, “We are just a small part of the market.”

However, he also shared that the Bitcoin futures market is growing with volumes coming from Asian markets, “Out of the 40 percent of bitcoin futures trading on CME that’s outside the U.S., 21 percent are coming from Asia.”

Meanwhile, Weiss Ratings slammed Bitcoin by labeling it as “One-Trick Pony” in its Tweet and stating Ethereum will take up half of its market share.
