Bitcoin is down $3,000 from its highs yesterday, extending its plunge yesterday back below the $11,000 level.
This sudden selling pressure has erased all the week’s gains for most of crypto but Bitcoin is stil up 11%… for now…
But, as CoinTelegraph reports, Fundstrat Global Advisers Co-Founder Thomas Lee suggests that bitcoin’s volatility makes a long-term approach towards it more appropriate for most traders in a tweet published on June 27.
Litecoin is still up around 300% YTD (and Bitcoin 200%)…
In his tweet, Lee intended to remind others that “bitcoin is a hypervolatile asset” and that this makes it “great for volatility and other dedicated traders.” Still, he noted that most should probably use a different approach instead:
“For most, taking a long-term view is more appropriate.”
Representing the opposite view, Washington Post columnist Michelle Singletary suggested in an article published today that people tempted to invest in bitcoin should “keep in mind these investing bubbles that burst — tulip bulbs and Beanie Babies.” She further notes:
“The current price surge for bitcoin has many people fearing they will miss out on a big opportunity to make a lot of money. But buying bitcoin is still akin to gambling.”
