Key Players to Focus on Introduction of New Services to Strengthen the Market Growth

The demand for crypto has increased due to rising investments in venture capital. Additionally, the increasing popularity of digital assets such as bitcoin and litecoin is likely to accelerate the market in upcoming years. Furthermore, it has been seen that the digital currency is also used in the integration of blockchain technology to get decentralization and control efficient transactions. Thus, advantages such as these are also encouraging people to invest in crypto. For instance, In October 2018, Qtum Chain Foundation made a partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) China to use blockchain systems on the AWS cloud. With this collaboration, AWS will be able to help its users in using Amazon Machine Images (AMI) to develop and publish smart contracts easily and efficiently.

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the world economy. However, the relationship between Bitcoin and the equity market expanded amid pandemic. For example, in March 2020, the price of Bitcoin declined and went below USD 4,000 after a decline in the S&P Index in the U.S. Thus, as the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) market crashed, blockchain companies are emerging as major alternative to raise investment capital.

Drivers and Restraints

Focus on Mitigating Financial Crisis and Regional Instability Drives the Demand for Virtual Currency

In recent times, financial disaster is one of the primary issues that occurs in the conventional banking system. This financial instability disrupts the economy by lowering the value of money. For instance, ICICI bank of India, in the year 2008, confronted the Lehman brother crisis, which hugely impacted the nation’s economy. But with using bitcoins, and other cryptocurrency, such situations of economic downfall can be avoided. Therefore, Cryptocurrencies are emerging as alternative options in the regions with unstable economical structure, and this has been a major driving factor for the global market growth.

Increasing Popularity and Adoption of Bitcoin to Augment Cryptocurrency Market Growth

Being the most famous and highly adopted digital currency across the world, Bitcoin is expected to boost the global market due to its wide acceptance. Moreover, digital currency poses no threat amidst a financial crisis. Their value is universally balanced, which is driving its demand in economically unstable structural regions. Furthermore, some banks have also started supporting cryptocurrency payments in some countries, which is expected to significantly boost the market growth. For instance, the People’s Bank of China and the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank adopted a digital currency as an exchange medium.

The launch of new cryptocurrencies is also expected to augment market growth. For instance, the launch of Dogecoin gained immense popularity and is constantly growing ever since its launch.

However, the misuse of digital currency for illegal uses like money laundering, tax evasion, etc., are expected to restrain the market growth.
