Altcoin Sherpa, another pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst, noted that based on a poll conducted by him, people are still bullish on Bitcoin in the coming months. However, he believes Bitcoin has not yet touched the bottom and there could be plenty of volatility in the short term.
$BTC: I find it highly unlikely this is the bottom; I think that we still have lots of chop to go. Play the short term volatility that these moves bring for alts and get in/get out. Expecting more crab over the next few weeks. I’m bidding low 40ks and averaging in. #Bitcoin pic.twitter.com/RnVj9qRyXW
