Equity markets and Bonds comprehend a “Bubble”, not Bitcoin

According to the technical analysis of Bitcoin's price. It is very unambiguous that it is one of the most fluctuating markets when compared to the traditional stock market.

Jon Matonis, being the co-founder of Bitcoin Foundation (2012) has put forth his views about the bubble which is existing in today's markets. He contradicts the fact that Bitcoin market is in the bubble, instead refers Bitcoin as a pin which might pop the bubble, which contains global bonds and stock markets.

As per his perspective, the real bubble can be occupied by the bonds and the equity markets itself. He also explained the reason as to why these bubbles were never seen by public earlier. He explains that these markets were always being propped by the Central banks and other financial institutions. At Innovate Finance Conference in London recently, Jon elucidates that the crypto market was in its legal tender age without the intervention of any form of centralized authority. Also, stronger cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are expected to support these changes.

“Hard-coded into the original block zero, genesis block, of bitcoin was a headline from The Times of London saying, ‘Chancellor on the brink of second bailout for banks.’ All they’re doing is papering over the bulls infrastructure. That headline epitomizes what bitcoin is about – that’s why it was hard-coded in there,” Matonis said.

According to his conjecture, the markets are supposed to get lesser volatile due to the involvement of many banks. He also added that it would assist the market in bringing more liquidity and also help “mature the market.” Nonetheless, he would not tolerate the Crypto market being regulated by any authority. But he considers that it is our responsibility that we choose best investment option by doing our own research effectively.

He added:
“I think we should operate in an environment of caveat emptor: Let the buyer do his research. This hopefully has forced a lot of investors to do more research. No one is forcing them to invest in ICOs. If you’re worried about the risk, just walk away.”

Despite all that, many investors and countries themselves feel the need to regulate the crypto. Countries like Australia, Thailand, Russia, China and many others have already taken intense measures to take crypto world under their control.

  • The US Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin also has expressed his skepticism by saying that his focus on the crypto world was to make sure that they are not used for the illegal activities such as money laundering, frauds and tax evasion.
  • Furthermore, British Prime Minister, Theresa May also has put forth her cynical beliefs on cryptocurrency's usage and says that they track it very seriously, especially on the way it could be potentially exploited by the law-breakers.
  • Whereas, the chief of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, has also expressed her sentiments by saying that it was ‘inevitable‘ that cryptocurrencies would fall under government regulation.

Amidst all these the chairperson of the Financial Security Board (FSB), Mark Carney’s decisive ideology with respect to digital currencies is that it doesn't pose any threat to global financial stability owing to its relatively tiny market value against the global GDP.
