Too Afraid to Buy the Dips; Too Much FOMO to Resist Buying The All Time Highs


12 years back, Bitcoin first came into existence with the genesis block having a reward of 50 BTC. The genesis block came with the text “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.”

In 2020, history repeated itself as central banks all over the world went crazy with money printing. This led institutions to see Bitcoin as a hedge against weak dollar and risk of inflation, making it part of their investment portfolio.

The unprecedented institutional interest in the crypto market had Bitcoin rallying to nearly $35k from the March low of 3,800.

Even at this record high price level, Anthony Scaramucci, the founder of SkyBridge Capital, which today announced its Bitcoin Fund, urged people to invest in it. “You’re still way early to Bitcoin if you’re buying today,” tweeted Scaramucci on Sunday.

“When you look at this bitcoin rally that we have been seeing in the last couple of weeks and months, really, there’s two big elements driving it. One is the continuous entry of institutional players,” PwC’s global crypto leader Henri Arslanian said Monday on CNBC’s “Street Signs Asia.” These institutional players have “an outsized impact on the markets.”

Arslanian who expects this trend to continue over the coming months said, there’s also “a lot of regulated players as well,” which was “not the case a couple of years ago.”

Combined with retail FOMO, “there’s a lot of momentum going on in the space.”

As the price continues to go higher and higher, people continue to feel the FOMO as Douglas A. Boneparth, CNBC Advisor Council tweeted, “Instead of drinking coffee and eating avocado toast every day, I should have been buying bitcoin.”

This can especially be seen in the way the market moved in the last few hours.

Even YouTuber Marques Brownlee, best known for his technology-focused videos and his podcast, Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast, took to Twitter to share his interest in buying in Bitcoin and missing out with the price continuing to keep on going higher and higher.

But still, with bitcoin adoption reaching only 2%, a huge population is on the sidelines and institutions have just started coming in.

Just last month, the day BTC broke its previous ATH $20k China’s mainstream financial outlet, Caijing ran a survey on Weibo asking people’s position on Bitcoin which revealed that 11k out of the 20.8k participants responded with “Such a scam, will never buy” while 3.1k said they might buy later.

This only goes on to show that this bull cycle is still in its early phase.
