Comedian Bill Maher Just Made Bitcoin Decidedly ‘Uncool’

The power being used right now to guess numbers and win imaginary prices is the same as all the electricity used to light all of New York State!

The exact words of Comedian Bill Maher, the host of “Real Time” on HBO. Bill made a clarion call for action despite appearing to be performing his comic duties on the show.

The comic and social critic highlighted the voracious amounts of electricity wasted on crypto “nothings”. Maher called bitcoin “a Beanie Baby” that runs on coal”, then humiliated the celebrities who purport to be strong environmentalists in public, but who participate in the enormous waste of electricity – much of it generated by coal – that is bitcoin mania.

With Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, already antagonistic to bitcoin, environmentalism may just become precisely the pretext needed to carry out harsh restrictions or even a ban on private cryptos.

Decreasing bullishness over the course of a long bull run might signal that it runs a bit out of steam. However, the macro level bull market can still continue until the sentiment turns bearish.

Our market sentiment for Bitcoin’s underlying fundamentals very much suggest “business as usual” for the largest cryptocurrency despite the recent upheaval.

Market Outlook

Despite Bitcoin being unable to maintain the necessary support for the April setup to take price more directly to the upper target. Bitcoin has shown some feisty resilience after breaking support in late April. However, BTC has formed an ambiguous structure from the February 28 low to the April 13 high. In simple terms, so long as that April 25 low holds (which is roughly $47k with some small variation ), the setup to higher targets is viable.

Early Bitcoin bull market buyers are still hodling strong, but short term trading increasing.
