Fundstrat report: Many positive catalysts for crypto in 2019

According to their report on various aspects of the crypto sector, Fundstrat Global Advisors outlined 9 improvements that will (hopefully) usher in upward price action in 2019... 

Fundsrats co-founder, and notable bitcoin permabull, Tom Lee, recently tweeted out the following report:

One of the first positive convergence trends is the weakening of the US dollar, which Fundstrat envisage will inversely affect the non-correlated BTC price. Similarly, the firm expects market equities to outperform the US stock market, which Fundstrat postulates will invigorate crypto and other similarly non-correlated, risk-on assets.

Speaking of traditional investments, the report expects that institutional money will come in this year, thanks to the evolution of investment vehicles, such over-the-counter trading desks, and crypto custody solutions; alluding to ventures from the Intercontinental Exchange and Fidelity Investments.

The report also notes on-ramps and off-ramps as a major catalyst, specifically citing Binance’s recent facilitation of debit and credit cards.

Within blockchain growth the report specifies the progress of scaling solutions, adding that the lightning network almost reaching critical mass will bolster investor confidence, along with advancements and adoption of privacy technology.
