Bitcoin is back and stronger than ever. Right off the bat, it’s token price started to skyrocket in April 2019. It became the second best token in Q2 within the last five years. The token went from the BTC USD $3,992 to the current price of $8,295.
Bull Run Of 2019 Kickoff
The market has allowed this token to get a strong start on the current bull run after being in a bear market for the past 16 months and the market temporary losing faith in digital currencies.
The cryptocurrency Bitcoin dominance still at over %50, this means that the total amount of money worldwide invested in cryptocurrency is 249.6 billion USD and Bitcoin holds 142 billion USD making it the to go token for new and old investors into this market.
During the past 16 months of the bear market infrastructure was set into place. Cryptocurrency exchanges did the proper hardware upgrades to start scaling into the next bull run that started in April. Wall Street was the first one to say that the great invention of Satoshi Nakamoto was a scam but since the summer of 2018 most S&P 500 companies started integrating cryptocurrencies into their exchange trade funds for XRP, Etherium, BTC Cash and the King token of them all Bitcoin.
The HODL Strategy
Despite the 2018 bear market cryptocurrency transactions we steady, this means that early adopters worldwide not only HODL ( The act for holding the cryptocurrency rather than selling it) but they also use as a payment method as intended. This is very important as the Distributed Ledger grows and companies prepare for this upcoming massive adaptation of crypto providing an alternative to manipulated markets that use fiat currencies.
Who Is The Bitcoin Rival?
Many will answer this and say BTC SV, which is forked of BTC Cash, which is forked of Bitcoin. BTC SV had a slow start in the cryptocurrency dominance and has failed to scale on volume despite the fact that it doubled in price in the past 6 weeks from $51.22 to its current price of $105, Bitcoin SV price only a small fraction of the Bitcoin being reflected on the market cap position holding 1.8 Billion USD of the total cryptocurrency marker cap.

Bitcoin SV is 10 times faster than Bitcoin but there is already a token in the market that is 25 times faster than bitcoin, XRP and is only priced at $ 0.37 USD. In 2018 XRP Ripple spend their resources partnering with global leaders in the banking industry like American Express, Santander and Moneygram.
