The main trend in the crypto currency market over the past week can be described in one word - positive.

Bitcoin showed the serious potential for further growth and many specialists have already started talking about the fact that main crypto currency will exceed the $ 10,000 mark very soon. On Saturday, Asian trading platforms such as Bithumb, Upbit, BCEX, Coinone, Korbit bitcoin traded even above this mark. However, on large platforms such an indicator has not yet been achieved. One of the reasons for the local euphoria was the positive news that the famous American investment bank Goldman Sachs will soon launch trading bitcoin futures for its customers. This step should become a kind of symbol of the revision of the attitude of the world banking system to digital currencies.

A lot of positive things on the market are also the numerous predictions of experts predicting previously unattainable heights for crypto-currency. So a week earlier with a positive forecast regarding the bitcoin course, the founder of Fundstrat Tom Lee. He said that the first crypto currency has great advantages, and also noted that by early 2019 it will reach $ 25,000.

As for the etherium, the creation of Vitalik Buterin is also foretold a happy future. So, the co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanyan in his interview this week said that in 2018 Ethereum will reach the cost of $ 15,000. "[Bitcoin] will go to the moon. I still keep some coins, and the general opinion is that bitcoin will continue to be a means of saving. But really I'm bullish, I'm looking at Ethereum, just because people are developing something based on it. This is just the beginning, but, you know, we already have CryptoKitties. We did not invest in them, but I'm not surprised that they found funding, as they developed the first real application. You can laugh at him, but I think that the first version of so many good things often looks like a toy, "Oganyan said. Moreover, Reddit plans to restore the possibility of receiving bitcoin for a premium subscription, and add support for Litecoin and Ethereum crypto currency. The founder of the network Vitalik Buterin promised to increase its throughput through sharding.

The very procedure of sharding should allow to scale the block by dividing the processes of transaction processing between a large number of validators. In this case, each of them can confirm part of the total number of transactions. With the implementation of this solution, Ethereum will not only be able to achieve, but also surpass the level of processing of transactions of the main payment networks like Visa.

Well, and, of course, one of the most discussed news was Telegram's refusal to hold a public ICO. Sources of the Wall Street Journal report that Telegram collected enough funds from a small group of private investors (approximately $ 1.7 billion), and the founder of the messenger Pavel Durov felt that there was no need for an open campaign for the general public. It is worth adding that in the first quarter of 2018 ICO-projects attracted $ 3.3 billion without taking into account the results of Telegram. The indicators take into account only funds collected during the ICO. The statistics do not take into account the data of the unfinished rounds of funding, indicators of presale and rounds of collection of Telegram messenger funds.
