Have cryptocurrencies bottomed out? This is the first question to pop up in any crypto investor’s mind following the recent pullback from the lows.

Arthur Hayes, a Bitcoin bull and co-founder of one of the largest crypto exchanges Bitmex is not convinced that a bottom has formed yet. He believes the current leg of the pullback can reach anywhere between $8,000 and about $10,000 before plunging again. He opines that the bottom will be formed around the level of $5,000.

Boris Schlossberg of BK Asset Management, a known Bitcoin bear, said that the current pullback could go above $8,000.

As has been the case for the past few weeks, it is hard to resist writing about the institutional investors. Digital asset management fund Grayscale Investments has said that 56 percent of all new investments into their products in the first half of 2018 have been made by institutional players.

In fact, the total investment inflow in June was one of the strongest fundraising periods since 2013, Grayscale claimed in its first-ever crypto investment report.

So, with all this institutional money flowing in, has the crypto market bottomed out or is this a dead cat bounce? Let’s find out.
