What do you think will trigger the next bull run?

Recommended Posts

A lot have been attributed to the next bull run which include the following:

  1. The approval of a first BTC spot ETF: industry experts are predicting a huge investment fund coming into the crypto market when a BTC spot ETF goes live on stock exchanges, trust funds and banks with figures ranging from $5 trillion to $12 trillion dollars according to multiple sources claiming this could spearhead a big bull. Little wonder why BTC has been on a front pedal since the fake news of an approval broke out couple of day ago. Now, much have been discussed on mainstream media recently about SEC already engaging 8 - 10 ETF applicants with some like Blackrock already amending their application. All these are indications that a first BTC spot ETF trade is really close than we can imagine!
  2. Bitcoin halving: experts claim that history is about to repeat itself as we enter the final months of BTC halving (to be completed in April 2024). Historically post-halving of BTC has commanded a huge bull in the past taking the price of BTC consistently to an ATH like the previous bulls of 2017 and 2020/21. BTC halving creates scarcity of the asset; reduced miners reward; reduced liquidity and increased price. But bulls associated with halving always comes a year after the halving is done so, we are looking at another BTC ATH in 2025 if history were to relive itself.
  3. Massive adoption: since the clampdown on the crypto market by China that lead to the present bear market, a lot of the industry experts are of the opinion that only large wave of adoption can massively uplift the relevance of the crypto market which will consequently usher in the next bulls. Well, a lot has been happening lately with financial institutions now seeking solution with the help of blockchain like the Bank of China using the Ethereum blockchain to print digital Yuan, Citi Bank tokenization of customers' deposits and ANZ banks trialing the use of ChainLink for banking transactions and the Automobile industry gradually accepting crypto payments such as the recent move by Honda motors and Ferrari Motors. These are all indications that adoption of crypto is finally creeping in.

Each of the above scenario can trigger the market boom but I think it's gonna be a combination of all the three this time around rather than a single factor because these factors above affects the market in their own specific ways. Hence, the cumulative effect is going to make the next bull run unstoppable!!

So, what do you think might trigger the next bull market?

Predicting market movements is always a bit tricky, but historically, bull runs in the cryptocurrency space have been triggered by a combination of factors. Some potential triggers for the next bull run could include:

  1. Adoption by Institutional Investors: If more institutional investors enter the cryptocurrency market or if major financial institutions embrace blockchain technology, it could boost confidence and attract more capital.

  2. Regulatory Clarity: Clearer regulations around cryptocurrencies in major economies could alleviate concerns and encourage more widespread adoption.

  3. Technological Advancements: Breakthroughs in blockchain technology, scalability solutions, or improvements in security and efficiency could renew interest and drive prices higher.

  4. Increased Mainstream Acceptance: If more businesses start accepting cryptocurrencies as a form of payment and if there's a broader integration of cryptocurrencies into everyday financial transactions, it could drive demand.

  5. Global Economic Uncertainty: Cryptocurrencies, particularly Bitcoin, are sometimes seen as a store of value or "digital gold" during times of economic uncertainty. Economic downturns or inflation concerns might drive investors toward cryptocurrencies.

  6. Halving Events: Bitcoin undergoes a "halving" approximately every four years, where the reward for miners is halved. Historically, these events have been associated with bullish trends in Bitcoin's price.

  7. Media Hype and Public Perception: Positive media coverage and growing public interest can contribute to a bullish sentiment, driving more people to invest in cryptocurrencies.

  8. Technological Developments in Specific Projects: Significant advancements or successful implementation of key features in major blockchain projects could trigger positive market sentiment.

It's important to note that these factors are speculative, and the cryptocurrency market is influenced by a complex interplay of various elements. Also, market sentiment and investor psychology play a significant role in the crypto space. As always, it's crucial for investors to conduct thorough research and exercise caution in the volatile cryptocurrency market.

Cryptocurrency exchanges can play a role in the overall market dynamics, including influencing the potential for the next bull run. While exchanges alone may not be the sole factor in reigniting a bull market, they can contribute to market sentiment and liquidity, which are important drivers in the cryptocurrency market. Here are a few ways in which exchanges can potentially influence the next bull run:

1. Increased Trading Activity: Bull markets are typically characterized by increased trading activity and higher trading volumes. Reputable exchanges like Bitget Binance and a few others serve as platforms where users can buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrencies, and they facilitate the liquidity needed for market participants to engage in trading. As market sentiment improves and more people enter the market, exchanges can experience increased trading volumes, which can contribute to a bullish trend.

2. Accessibility and Onboarding: Exchanges play a crucial role in onboarding new participants into the cryptocurrency market. They provide user-friendly interfaces, account creation processes, and support for various cryptocurrencies. As exchanges continue to improve their user experience and accessibility, they can attract a wider audience and potentially contribute to the growth of the market.

3. Listing of New Projects: Exchanges have the power to list new projects and tokens on their platforms. When reputable exchanges list promising projects, it can generate interest and excitement among traders and investors. This increased exposure can contribute to positive market sentiment and potentially fuel a bull market.

4. Trading Instruments and Derivatives: Many exchanges offer a variety of trading instruments, including derivatives such as futures and options. These instruments allow traders to speculate on the price movements of cryptocurrencies without owning the underlying assets. Derivatives trading can provide additional liquidity and trading opportunities, potentially amplifying market movements during a bull run.

5. Market Confidence and Trust: Trustworthy and well-regulated exchanges can contribute to market confidence and trust. As the cryptocurrency industry continues to mature and regulatory frameworks develop, reputable exchanges that prioritize security, transparency, and compliance can attract more institutional investors and mainstream participants. This increased confidence in the market can contribute to the sustainability and potential longevity of a bull market.

It's important to note that while exchanges can influence market dynamics, they are just one piece of the puzzle. Other factors listed by @BashJasper including macroeconomic conditions, regulatory developments, technological advancements, and investor sentiment will also play significant roles in shaping the direction of the market.

Compliance to regulations by crypto exchanges will definitely bring transparency to the system which will enhance massive adoption and could trigger the next bullrun but looking at government involvement and interference, it could as well be a blocker.

Well, you've made the argument tilt more to mass adoption of crypto except that that could be for the long run. As we know BTC and other crypto assets price movement are subject to traders activities on exchanges besides any exceptional external news like approval of the pending spot ETF by SEC which will inject huge funds into the market and increase buy pressure
