I agree it may have been pumped, but I also think it was started by the dry up of BTC supply after the halving in 2016. Following this logic I expect another huge bull run in 2021. Before then I can see BTC rising slowly once this year is over and some good alts making decent moves in 2019 and 2020. I believe if maidsafe can launch beta by the beginning of 2020 we will see some huge gains in the Safecoin price that will be similar to Ethereum’s pump from 50 cent to $15 in early 2016. From here though we should be well and truely back in bull market territory, with many weak/scam alts been found out or failed, and the better, stronger projects coming to fruition.
Also you have the obvious race by the big boys to open the gates for institutional investors, with coinbase creating a platform for them as well as many others gearing up. This is all hugely bullish and gives plenty of time before the next halving, which I believe will be super hyped by the media and all those investing. It’s just a waiting game at the moment, and only really those over invested are the ones panicking right now.
