The cost of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency — bitcoin — could still fall, at least to 7.5 thousand dollars per unit, but then growth is possible to more than double from current levels, provided the disappearance of the panic associated with the state regulation of cryptocurrencies, the words of interviewees RIA Novosti experts.

All proygressive»we are Talking about continuing a correction after rapid growth in 2017, especially in the last quarter. In global terms, the threshold of 10 thousand is not much different from 11 thousand and 9 thousand, except for certain psychological component. If you look at the international scale, I think the main influence continues to render what is happening in South Korea,» said a member of the expert Council of the state Duma on legislative maintenance of development of financial technology and co-founder of the international network of professional investors in the digital assets CryptoLife Peter Dvoryankin.

The economist-commentator Maksim blant optimistic. «Those who bought bitcoins before the middle of last year to capitalize on the growth, preferred to take profits, and then see what happens. I don’t think we will go below 7.5 and 7.6 thousand dollars. But buying makes sense now: the potential fall of 25% (and this should be ready), potential growth of over 100%. This does not exclude the probability of falling to «zero», but it is small», he warned.

According to Dvoryankin, the growth of bitcoin may be resumed, but this should be a good incentive in the market. «For example, China will give relief, or in the same Korea everything will calm down and you can continue to work quietly, even under the new rules» — he brought an example.
