The event that many crypto enthusiasts have been waiting for will take place soon - in three days we will become witnesses the official launch of the Bakkt platform, which will make it possible to trade with physical Bitcoin futures.
Many famous personalities have already commented on the potential effect of Bakkt on the price of cryptocurrency. They were joined by Thomas Lee, co-founder of Fundstrat.
Get ready for the native!
Lee hastened to assure his subscribers ofTwitter that Bakkt will become a bridge between the cryptocurrency industry and institutional investors. A sharp influx of capital into the market will necessarily positively affect the price of the main digital asset.
I am very positive on @Bakkt and it’s ability to improve trust with institutions to crypto https://t.co/7icnJp76GE

Thomas retweeted a message from Mia Tam withtechnical analysis of the graph, which you can see below. The formation of an almost symmetrical triangle is noticeable on it. Traditionally, this figure precedes a sharp spurt in the price of a trading instrument.
In other words, traders may wellrely on the rapid rise in price of Bitcoin (BTC) after the launch of Bakkt. By the way, the start time of the platform almost coincided with the top of the triangle - the date is marked with a white dashed line.
But other crypto enthusiasts have negativeforecasts. For example, CryptoGuy believes that Bakkt will cause the start of the “bear season”. After the launch of the platform, the price of Bitcoin supposedly should fall due to market manipulations. CryptoGuy draws parallels with the launch of CBOE and CME futures. Recall that a few days after these events, the price of cryptocurrency reached its historical maximum, and then began to plummet.
Recall that behind the creation of Bakkt is ICE, a network of exchangesand clearing houses for financial and commodity markets in the USA, Canada and Europe. The presence of such a large organization in the crypt is another reason for large investors to trust Bitcoin and invest in it.
The reality is that predicting influenceBakkt cannot be launched on cryptocurrencies, since such a platform has not yet existed. That is why industry representatives give both positive and polar opposite forecasts. Be that as it may, the answers to all questions will be announced on Monday, so for now we are waiting.
