Groestlcoin (GRS) soared to well over 300% briefly, and now remains above 80% up in the last 24 hours.
Monero (XMR) saw a big price spike leaving it up over 10% in the last 24 hours
CEO of Pantera Capital Calls Buy Signal for BTC
This was only the fourth trade recommendation publicized by Dan Morehead in seven years while operating the fund with a focus on cryptocurrencies. For roughly the past month, BTC has rode right below the 200 day moving average, but has not been in decline. This is the ideal “bottom” signal. Blind optimism has left the market, and the harshest prices have been revealed.
Dan Morehead spent his career before cryptocurrencies in executive roles at Deutsche Bank in London, Bankers Trust, and Goldman Sachs. He started Pantera Capital in 2003, and converted the cryptocurrency market in 2013. He was one of the founding members of Bitstamp in 2015.
