From Korea – Looking bright for BTC

Hi guys. It is 7pm here in Korea, and we are seeing the last pack of short term money pull out today. Tons of posts for the past 3 days of leaving the crypto forever.

I think we will recover BTC of 10,000 by Monday. I am confident. The short term panic of Korean short term money has left and we are seeing premium of 0% at this stage, making the BTC price where it should be.

Tether, everyone keeps forgetting, if it were a scam, than the price should have plummetted to the pegged $ 1.0, but holding. It is not a scam and the price proves it.

Will be back with the sentiment on BTC again. Once again, the short term Korean money that plunged the market over the few days have LEFT, and we are in the beginning of a big recovery. See you at $ 11,000 again, where it should belong at this time of year.
