Our experts suggest a strategy for investing in the collapse of the crypto market and the actions of U.S. regulators
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has targeted two major trading exchanges at once. The lawsuit against Coinbase is informative primarily because it mentions a number of popular cryptocurrencies. And which the SEC calls securities. This is clearly a blow to the cryptocurrency market, which logically expects further developments not in the most positive direction.
At the same time, it should be noted that Bitcoin (BTC) reacted rather reservedly to reports of lawsuits against major cryptocurrency exchanges. This is largely due to the fact that holders of those altcoins, which were declared securities in the lawsuit against Coinbase. Then they rushed to withdraw some assets, but not completely leave the crypto market. But to redirect capital to Bitcoin as a more reliable digital asset. And this is a very smart investment idea in the current environment. The current rate of Bitcoin looks attractive enough to enter.
This is not a short-term investment, and it is unlikely that Bitcoin will go sharply up or down in the coming weeks. This is due not only to the regulatory uncertainty that has intensified since the SEC lawsuits. But also with the upcoming U.S. Federal Reserve meeting in the middle of the month, where most investors expect the key rate to remain unchanged.
So, entering Bitcoin now looks like a sensible and effective move for those who would like to increase their presence in the crypto market. But it is logical to be suspicious of possible problems with altcoins.
In addition to Bitcoin, it is worth taking a closer look at the tokens of decentralized crypto-exchanges. Which, clearly, against the backdrop of tighter regulation in the U.S. will experience an influx of new users and strengthen their presence in the global market. However, there is a risk that these tokens will also be classified as securities. So, the risks for altcoins are still quite high and we can expect high volatility.
