2018 might be a good year for some of the major altcoins, but I have my doubts about the performance of Bitcoin. Two of the major things Bitcoin needs to address is transaction speeds and fees. I have read articles about many businesses that have stopped accepting Bitcoin because of how volitile the price is on a minute-by-minute basis. It makes sense to me too. There is always a risk that by the time a transaction for a product has been made and the Bitcoin subsequently traded for dollars that the value has gone down and the merchant ends up losing money. I think now more than ever what Bitcoin needs is stability in its "value". I feel bad for the poor bastards who invested their life savings in Bitcoin when it surged to $20k just to have it shed over half its value in a matter of days. That may not be much to cry about for the Winklevoss twins, but for the common hard working man or woman, that must have really hurt.

If they invested in Bitcoin then they should have been aware of the potential risk. Bitcoin is slowly getting better in terms of scalability. Lightning Network is being developed, it will be used for small transactions that need to be inexpensive and fast. Right now, Bitcoin transaction fee is just 1 sat/b, it isn't really expensive. Valve and Microsoft stopped accepting BTC for some time but as far as I know, it's available again.

For me price of coins will pump but unfortunately not to the moon in 2018. I see some possibilities to do that when whole amount of bitcoin or practically all will be mined, then other coins will try to chase its price imo.

I am also convinced that there are enough elements to think that the cryptocurrency market will experience an important growth in 2018, because once the market has learned to deal with the entry and exit of large capitals as it happened in 2017, this this year may be less volatile than the previous one, but I hope that its behavior will be much more stable, which could undoubtedly attract more institutional capital that will lead to gradual and consistent growth.

I have also been continuously reading better comments about the potential of this market in different media, so the fears of a total collapse seem to be waning.

I think that Institutional Inverstors could be the driving force for a strong upleg of the whole cryptrocurrencies capitalization. Cryptland is a casino right now, but wall street is a much bigger casino which is running out of steam. It could well be that the big wall street whales decide that they can make more money by jumping into the crypto casino, in which case you would seem capitalization go to the roof.
The other four reasons i find less incisive.

I do not even know what to expect anymore. Let's hope that the crypto-currencies will return to their former positions, I mean the end of 2017. Already a lot of negative news pushes the crypto currency to go lower and lower.

Hosp has explained before why a potential cryptocurrency bubble could burst in 2018, but there are several factors that make him see upside potential in the space.

For bitcoin, the most important cryptocurrency by his estimation, he sees a 150 percent potential upside for 2018.

Taking into account several factors, the cryptocurrency market's upside potential could rise to up to seven or eight times present levels, he says.

1. The work on scaling issues
2. Large scale and more legitimate ICOs
3. Regulation
4. A lot of execution and usability
5. Institutional investors

For more info or details heres the link.
https://www.c[Suspicious link removed]m/2018/02/23/bitcoin-ethereum-other-cryptocurrency-five-positive-factors-for-2018.html

I think this is reasonable.

I would like to add some more:

1) Increasing popularity in developing countries. Earlier the crypto exchanges in my country had only bitcoins listed for investors. Now they are adding more coins like Ripple, Ethereum and Litecoin. This shows that the popularity and acceptance of crypto is increasing in these countries.
2) Another important thing that will help bitcoin growth is the fall of PayPal. PayPal is facing a lot of troubles, like eBay has removed it as payment option. Also, PayPal is increasing its fees quite a lot which will irritate the users more.

The wide application of block chain technology may promote the development of digital cryptographic currency.

Many technology companies are beginning to realize the importance of block chain technology. They have started to study the block chain technology!

The ico project is also starting to promote the development of digital digital cryptographic currency!

Many are unsure of the reasons you made him not really thinking about it for me, which will happen is the phenomenon of price increases in 2018 that occurred in my opinion at the end of this year may also, not forever for the appointment of a continuous decline.

I think these things are like being asked since ages and where do we stand in the developments? I think we are far far away from achieving these things. These five reasons that you have depicted here are really striking one because they have been tried since many years and still they are getting worse. Bitcoin scale up issue, its been two years and we are still not having proper solution for this one. If things kept happening like this then do you really think that 2018 can bring anything good to crypto world. We need to see real results and we dont need just few development put together. ICO are the black holes and they are sucking the investment of bitcoin that should be going into it daily and must not go into scammer projects.

I don't know any reasons to say that bitcoins will be successful in the 2018
You should know about it as bitcoin is now very famous and it is very easy to get information about the bitcoin currency and the main cause behind the success of bitcoin today, so here I share with you main reason of bitcoin as best incurrence this year to enhance your knowledge about bitcoin, first reason according to me it that bitcoin is an investment that use to grow very fast, you will not have to do anything but only investment, 2! Bitcoin is gonna be best currency because it gives us job and it helps us earning for our family, 3! Bitcoin increase chances to get rich in few months it does not take much time to grow.4! Having bitcoin will reduce your tension about your future as you will be happy that you have something behind you 5! Bitcoin is best as it is now acceptable in super markets and coming age is gonna be digital age so good to have bitcoin.

Definitely, the price will uprise in the Q4 of 2018. It will just repeat the scenario during 2017 wherein the bitcoin bullish the market. But I think it will grow up more and other cryptocurrency will move up also. Let see how does the luck of cryptocurrencies for 2018 and just hope that it will hit the  high price.

Yes you are right this ia also what im thinking that it repeating on what happen last year it will fall down many are panic selling and it will goes up again. Base on the chart last year and today it was same fluctuationand path so we assume that bitcoin on this year 2018 we hope that meet the speculation of $40,000 to $50,000 for this year.

From my personal experience for a short time. I could only speculate base on that. Seeing new great ideas popping in the marketplace right now, new token, new utilization. These could probably excite the market because this token is going to useful in the real world. And I'm sure more and more people will be incline in utilizing these digital assets for easier and faster transactions.

I hope it will be a good year for cryptocurrency! The beginning of the year not very successful and caused a lot of panic, but I think closer to the middle of the year things will get better!
Compare it to the beginning of the last year 2017 you can totally see the difference to its price as it was lurking around for just $1000 plus then fluctuates to $900, then the price now? $9300 plus as of this time breaking the walls of 10,000. The major price crash was very devastating mostly for those who entered the market at the price of $20,000 but the correct price was the current that we are seeing now.

Do we reqlly need to wait for Q4 before tasting the price of recovery or the pump?why not this Q2 or Q3 since we have waited almost four months now..like yesterday when we almost break the $10,000 but didnt get a chance and dump again now.maybe by next month we will start getting the price were looking for a lon now
