Crypto market panic is subsiding, now's the time to buy


17 Jun 2021

#Ethereum

The Pantera boss cited three primary reasons why crypto markets dumped a trillion dollars in market cap. The chief executive of Pantera Capital, Dan Morehead, is confident that the big crypto selloff is slowing because he thinks “we’ve seen the most of this panic”.

In the monthly newsletter published on June 14, the venture capitalist stated that the best time to buy is when markets are “well below trend”. A Bitcoin trend deviation chart backed up this claim as it showed that the asset has only been this “cheap” relative to its trend for a fifth of its lifecycle.

He also asserted that the year-on-year returns do not indicate that Bitcoin is overvalued either. 

“The year-on-year return never went literally off-the-chart like in past peaks. It’s currently trading at 281% year-on-year — which seems entirely plausible given the money printing that has occurred in that period.”

Morehead went on to explain that a convergence of three news events that had made the markets fall so sharply. Another clampdown from China was one of the big factors, but as Morehead pointed out this has happened several times before.

“OK, let’s take in the latest China “banning bitcoin” thing out with a wider lens. It feels like we’ve also seen **that** movie before.”

He listed eight separate incidents over as many years when China has banned Bitcoin or cracked down on the industry, followed by a chart depicting huge gains Bitcoin has made afterward. Beijing has also been cracking down on Bitcoin mining operations over concerns of energy consumption as it strives for carbon neutrality. The second reason cited by the Pantera Capital boss was U.S. Tax Day which traditionally has affected markets as investors chose to liquidate some of their holdings to raise money for their tax bill.

“Previous Tax Day cycles have hit local lows seven days before Tax Day. That makes tremendous sense. That’s about how long it takes to get your money out of an exchange and to your bank.”

The third factor he named was Elon Musk’s 180 on Bitcoin but he did not elaborate on the impact the Tesla CEO’s tweets had on the market at the time. Musk caused a “tweet war” on May 17 when he hinted that Tesla may sell some of its BTC holdings due to environmental concerns over energy consumption. Crypto asset markets plunged 43% from their $2.5 trillion all-time high in mid-May, shedding over a trillion dollars in total market capitalization in the weeks that followed. Markets have been consolidating since they hit their lowest point in this pullback on May 24, and are currently around $1.6 trillion.
