COVID-19 has the world suffers, but the crypto world, especially Bitcoin, has benefited from it. When most of the traditional assets are down because of the economy, cryptocurrencies prove their worth as a hedge asset. Two months after the March crash, Bitcoin has already taken back lost grounds, now testing the $10,000 mark. But the positive impact of the COVID-19 on Bitcoin doesn’t stop here, another bull factor is coming – unlimited QE.
With unlimited quantitative easing plan, comes an exploding money supply. So much money will flow into all kinds of channels and jumpstart the economy, and that’s what governments are aiming for. But the excessive money in the market will also gradually leads to inflation, so each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services. With the U.S. leading the QE, and European countries following suit, people may one day find the money in their pocket shed some of its value.
Unlike the fiat, Bitcoin just experienced its “quantitative hardening” two weeks ago. The third halving of Bitcoin has cut its issuance into a half, so its inflation rate remains around 1.8% until the fourth halving. The store-of-value nature of Bitcoin has already been recognized in some countries facing hyperinflation. Venezuela, who seems to has abandoned its cryptocurrency the petro, will allow shops and enterprises to settle payment via Bitcoin in June. Iran has started to adopt Bitcoin into its monetary system by granting over 1,000 cryptocurrency mining licenses and launching a national blockchain project called Borna.
Just on the day of the third halving, Donal Trump twittered that the U.S. could use some negative interest rates. While people get to pay lower mortgage rates or loan rates, yields on saving accounts and financial products are likely to decrease or even crushed.
In a tweet, Peter Schiff warns Trump about the disadvantages of negative interest rates: “But the inflation created to make negative rates possible will hurt wage earners too, plus the overall economy will be less productive and living standards will be lower as a result.”
While it is true that the effects of QE won’t be visible immediately, with Bitcoin continues to consolidate its ground, QE could be a big momentum for Bitcoin to surpass $20,000 as many analysts predicted.
Bitcoin: a destination in the era of QE
For investors who only hope to secure their funds, bonds and bank deposits are still good choices. Although they may not generate profits, they are very safe and liquid. But if you have a bigger appetite, Bitcoin, highly liquid and highly profitable, is the way to go. And the best way to generate profit through Bitcoin is no doubt leveraged trading.
Many investors favor traditional assets are afraid of volatility, but leveraged trading is born for it.
Lets’s see how:
Step 1: the current price of BTC is $9,000. If you believe the price is going to drop, you can open a short position with 0.01 BTC. Now, 0.01 BTC may not seem much, but with 100x leverage, you can open a contract worth 1 BTC.
Step 2: When the price of BTC drops 500 points to $8,500, you close the position.
Profit: ($9000-$8500)*1 BTC/$8500=0.059 BTC.
