“2018 was a tough year for cryptotraders, but it did teach us a whole lot”

CNBC has produced the first Crypto Trader episode for this year. In this episode, Crypto Trader Ran Neuner dives into the world  of cryptocurrency heading into the new year.

In the episode, Morgan Creek founder Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano, Shomei Capital founder Arjun Balaji, and  Coinshares CSO Meltem Demirors speak about how the year might look for Bitcoin.

Demirors believes that the Van Eck Bitcoin ETF will not be approved, while Balaji thinks that a Bitcoin ETF will be approved, commenting that he is “skeptical of Ethereum” this year owing to the transition from Ethereum 1.0 to Ethereum 2.0.

Peter Brandt was featured in the video, taking an approach of the “here and now” of trading. Offering advice of not launching to December of 2019, but rather to rally in and focus on what the markers have been doing and what they might be doing now. He thinks that many of the projects are now worth trading and promotes the future of Bitcoin, saying that it “is the coin he is interested in” and that “Bitcoin is the legacy coin“.
