Bitcoin is doing down now in a bear market. When/if it goes back to 14,000 USD, then it goes back to a bull market. Some people are saying it might go real low throughout the year, even dropping to 1,000 or something in some calls, but it's hard to tell. Some people were hoping it would stay at 11,000 or shoot back it up to that for a healthy market, but it clearly went down. Some people are shilling for bitcoin cash, however there's a lot of opposition. Might be a personal thing, I don't know. There might be some perks to it. Over on /biz/, it's just a lot of shitcoin trading, so I don't know what coins will survive (if some coins even die.) Bitcoin had a lot of market sway with its growth being directly correlated to others, so it took a lot of coins down with it. Maybe there might be bull sentiments next year.
Speaking of which, some are confused on what caused the crash. Some think it was the Koreans, but it wasn't since they did not ban bitcoin and whatever regulations they implemented, it couldn't have been any worse of a shock to crypto. Another lead is a site error on the part of one of the biggest trading sites that started a panic. However I'm going with that cryptocurrency just doesn't have the infrastructure to maintain such high prices for long.
