Blockstream CEO: Bitcoin Dominance Will See 90% Again, Altcoins Were Temporary Feature

Adam Black, the CEO of Blockstream, has recently affirmed that Bitcoin dominance is set to rever to around 90%, which would mark the end of the altcoins’ supremacy era. According to him, the historical heights will be achieved once more at the expense of the altcoins.

He affirmed this during a recent debate with Dovey Wan, the co-founder of Primitive Fund. Initially, Wan asked about how Bitcoin was quickly decoupling from altcoins and rising in price alone. Adam Black answered that this was a “reversion to mean” and that the process would continue. At the moment, the dominance of BTC is around 70%, but he believes it will grow.

Last year, Bitcoin had less than 40% of the whole market cap, but the situation is changing quickly. Black affirmed that the whole reversion of the trend will last for around two years and a half and that the dominance will be huge when the process stops. Before 2015, BTC dominated 90% of the market and he believes that this will happen again.

This obviously gives some power to the narrative that Bitcoin is here to take the place of the altcoins completely. Vocal critics of altcoins have been very prominent lately by affirming that they are mostly doomed, with maybe only a handful of them surviving the future.

The Bitcoin maximalist Max Keiser, for instance, affirmed that the altcoins will never recover from their losses and that Bitcoin will continue to be the king in an even more undisputed fashion now. Is he right? Hard to say, but the trend if clear, Bitcoin is growing and the altcoin market is struggling to follow.

Luxembourg Financial Firm, Black Manta Capital, Receives BaFin License For STO

Black Manta Capital Partners, a financial company based in Luxembourg, has recently received the license from the German regulator BaFin (Federal Financial Supervisory Authority). With the license, the company will now be able to start offering Security Token Offering (STO).

The company first filed the order for the license nine months ago. Now, it is legally able to offer regulated blockchain-based brokerage services to its clients, which was the plan since the start.

According to the reports, the company is set to manage the tokens of the clients using the blockchain. The idea is to offer more access to smaller and medium companies via the STOs. This way, they will get an innovative new way to raise capital from investors.

Part of the reason why the company wanted to get the license from the regulator was in order to reach a more global audience. The Black Manta Capital Partners project is very ambitious and the company wants to set many international bases. Berlin will be one of these places, as well as Vienna and Malta.

There are also some plans to open up shop in Singapore, which would expose the company to Asian markets. Because of this, the company has already applied for a license in Singapore a well. At the moment, they are awaiting their approval.

According to the spokesman of the company, Black Manta wants to hold only great STOs, but they want to be the link between Europe and Asia, so having investments in both companies is a great start.
