Bill Barhydt, Abra CEO: “…if you can collateralize real-world assets using crypto, [without] introducing new third-party custodians, you’re onto something really interesting. Because now you can represent fiat currencies, stocks, bonds, commodities in a way that doesn’t require you to become a bank. That’s interesting. You’ve got a combination of hard money and regulatory arbitrage to solve real consumer problems. That’s what I think it’s going to take to break into developing markets.”

Bitcoin has started to look for its bottom again. On Monday, the digital asset could not hold the $3,618 level and fell below $3,510. Since then, bulls managed to push the cryptocurrency to the $3,567 level but were too weak to stay at this high. On the H4, the price for Bitcoin bounced from the $3,567 level on Thursday morning and started to fall. Today, it has already moved down towards the support at $3,447 but managed to recover a bit. The next support lies at $3,378. If bulls get stronger, Bitcoin will rise to the resistance at $3,510. If they are too strong to break this level the next resistance is placed at $3,567.
