As bitcoin barely manages to stay afloat, with its price being below $3,450, it might be the best time to invest in it. Recently, the independent rating agency Weiss Ratings posted a tweet, which said low levels make bitcoin the best buying opportunity of the year.
This makes bitcoin a hot pie (what it has always been compared to altcoins). Another proof is that Google’s Year in Search has shown that the question «what is bitcoin» has been the most popular among «what is» questions in 2018.
Time to Pile in BTC
This year March Weiss Ratings named five best cyber-coins for investment. Not surprisingly, the list was topped by a B-rated bitcoin. Previously, the same agency rated bitcoin C+, pushing it behind B-rated Ether. This move sparked online disputes and even cyber-attack.
Now Weiss Ratings is pushing for investing in bitcoin. On December 11, on the agency’s account on Twitter the following message appeared:
#BTC is getting to such low levels that it’s becoming one of the best buying opportunities of the year. As a store of value, #Bitcoin is here to stay. We truly think it’s the least speculative investment a person can make in #crypto right now.— Weiss Ratings (@WeissRatings) 11 декабря 2018 г.
On that day, bitcoin’s price was around $3,500. As of writing, the «big daddy» is being traded at $3,426. Since last year’s highs bitcoin has been low by 80%. Bitcoin’s price has been lowering since mid-November when its down-passed the threshold of $5,000.
