Volumes in crypto market are dropping, indicating an alarming situation. Crypto market started this year on a good note but later on crashed to low levels, apart from Ethereum, all other major crypto currencies are down for 2018, but one of the most alarming situations in this matter is that trading volumes on different exchanges are dropping to lowest levels in recent months.

For example, on Bitfinex current trading volume of Bitcoin is at around 25000 which at one point of time was as high as 160000 , which means this volume is not even 20% of its peak volume. Similarly in the case of Ripple, current trading volume is 8 Million which at one point of time was 50 million, so there is an alarming situation in that regards because not only price is dropping but crypto trading volume is also dropping dramatically.

Lack of interest?

One of the key questions that analysts are asking these days is that, is it lack of interest from investors that volumes are so low? may be they have found new investment opportunity in the form of S&P 500 and Gold. Most of the analyst think that this low activity is due to the reason that market speculators are currently out of the market and in wait and watch situation to make an entry point.

Calm before the storm?

Such low volumes and price movement in a tight range suggest that this is the calm before the storm, many regulatory authorities around the world are trying to stop crypto trading by either putting complete ban or by introducing tight laws, so speculators and institutional investors are just waiting for a clear picture so that they can make their bet on it, but one thing is for sure that sooner or later market is due for heavy movement in either direction, so day traders need to watch out.

The Bunny Ranch

You must have heard about Bitcoin being accepted as payment method in IT companies, Restaurants and property market but latest news from Nevada, United States is shocking yet interesting. World’s most famous legal brothel The Bunny Ranch is now accepting Bitcoin as payment from the clients.

The Bunny Ranch is probably the most famous legal brothel in the world, largely thanks to being featured on HBO’s Cathouse show and its owner Dennis Hof giving the Nevada-based business huge exposure through social media, books, as well as podcasts, and live streaming events. He has even done a speech at Oxford University about prostitution.

But for those who do end up visiting the brothel as a client, it’s likely they are looking for the utmost discretion when it comes to payments. This is where cryptocurrency comes into play. In a statement Hof said Bunny Ranch, which is one of the seven legal brothels he owns in Nevada state, has started to “explore” using bitcoin for payment for sexual services.

“We have some of the richest men in the world coming in and out of my brothels” said Hof. “Our high dollar clientele is accustomed to getting anything they want here, so when I started hearing requests from them to look into accepting bitcoin, I took those suggestions very seriously.

“Friends of mine like Heidi have been trusted with a lot of powerful secrets, and the anonymous nature of bitcoin is a natural fit for people who have much to lose if their private matters were to ever fall into the wrong hands,” Hof added before describing how clients would come into the brothel with duffel bags full of cash, which poses a security problem.

Bitcoin has been associated with the dark world and this aspect is definitely one part of that dark world, although there is no harm in accepting bitcoin but it would be interesting to see how legal authorities react to this situation.
