Crypto is getting hit as blockchain conference Consensus 2018 kicks off

Major cryptocurrencies were sliding Monday, with losses of up to 7%, as Consensus, one of the largest annual cryptocurrency conferences, kicks off in New York.

If history is any indication, cryptocurrencies should see a healthy rally during and after the conference according to data from Fundstrat Global Advisors. The firm says bitcoin has rallied anywhere from 10% to a 69% in previous years.

“Already one of the largest crypto conferences in the world, attendance this year is up dramatically (see below) and coming at a time when Bitcoin/Crypto is down YTD,” the firm said in a note to clients. “Hence, we expect the Consensus rally to be even larger than past years.”
