What other stories can I tell in 2020?

Cryptocurrency analyst Joseph Young:

The main stories of cryptocurrencies in 2019:

  • Exchange-traded fund ETF (launch)
  • Miner surrenders (when the price of bitcoin falls, small-scale mining operations are in trouble and sell coins, which promotes further decline in the price of coins, reduces the difficulty of mining, and eventually reverses the trend and a bull market appears)
  • Bitcoin (2020) halved (expected)
  • Physical delivery of Bitcoin futures contract Bakkt (online)
  • Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) actions (institutional entry, futures options trading)

Entering 2020, it seems that only halving Bitcoin is the only remaining story.

2020, more stories:

Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)

In Joseph's tweet, he also mentioned Ethereum 2.0, Lightning Network (LN), etc. For the cryptocurrency industry in 2020, which are the major industry threads and small industry trends that you think, please leave a message to share with us ~
