- BTC/USD is creeping lower, but the momentum is weak so far.
- Jackson Palmer believes institutional investors will do more harm than good.
Bitcoin is changing hands at $6,393. Despite rangebound trading, the biggest cryptocurrency has lost over 2% in recent 7 days and moved to trade at the lower line of the recent channel. While the longer-term picture confirms the indecisiveness on the market, the further decline may tilt the balance in favor of Bitcoin bears.
Bitcoin’s short-term technical picture
BTC/USD has moved under SMA200 (1-hour) and psychological $6,400, which might lead to a more extensive sell-off once the breakthrough is confirmed. The next downside target is produced by $6,355 (October 19 low) and $6,300 handle. Once below, the bears will have a chance to push the coin towards critical $6,200 and possibly $6,060 (the recent low).
On the upside, we need to return above $6,400 and see a sustainable movement above $6,480. In this case, the recovery may be extended towards $6,500 that capped the upside since October 16.
No institutional investors, please
While the industry is frantically waiting for institutional money, Jackson Palmer the creator of a joke coin Dogecoin believes that it will kill the industry by turning in into Wall Street 2.0. Recently he posted a tweet where he confessed that he did not understand why people were so enthusiastic about institutional investors.
“The institutionalization of cryptocurrency will heavily re-centralize both power structures and token distribution. So you can say goodbye to much of the original vision for the technology.”
He is also worried by the fact that 1% of all cryptocurrency wallets hold 55% of all the Bitcoins in the circulation. He is sure that institutions will deepen the divide and inequality of digital assets distribution.
