Bitcoin and top 5 altcoins “about to go crazy” according to Altcoin Daily
Altcoin Daily, a crypto YouTube channel, has indicated that Bitcoin and other top-five altcoins are ready to burst and set new all-time highs soon. Notably, the channel noted five altcoins that are also “about to go crazy” including Internet Computer (ICP), Ripple (XRP), UniLayer (LAYER), Chainlink (LINK), and Flow (FLOW).
Citing renowned gold bug Lawrence Leopard, Altcoin Daily says now is the biggest buying opportunity for Bitcoin. Leopard, a self-proclaimed Bitcoin proponent, says many in the gold business “don’t take the time to understand Bitcoin.” He also called the digital asset an “incredible innovation”, and the “loudest monetary fire alarm in the system right now”.
Additionally, the public ledger is immutable and free of manipulation by its “triple entry accounting”, he said. On the other hand, central banks have abused their control of gold which is why the asset is still not at an all-time high.
