After rallying to register a high amount above $ 19,800 midway through the month of December 2017, the prices of bitcoin collapsed last Friday. As a result, in a single day, the digital currency lost a third of its value, by sinking below $11,000 before retaining some of the ground it lost.

As per the news given by Coinbase, bitcoin traded at $15,185 on Tuesday. “For all the experts who have been in the market, this was considered to be a welcome dip”, Hosp said.

He further told that, insiders from the industry expected that the bitcoin’s price to slow down which is assumed to give the dangerous elevation of the value which has been recorded over the past few months.

Hosp added that, “This dip for us was very positive, healthy and some of us have thinking to buy a little bit as we had 40-45 % discounts to all-time highs.” But he is certain that it will fall again.

He said, “Right now I don’t think it, but in the long run we will always capture a little bit of an up move & then a dip down in the values of bitcoin.”
