The debate of which is the better investment between Bitcoin and Ethereum continues to wax strong between communities. This time around, it is being put to the test using MicroStrategy’s crypto investments over the years. Microstrategy is currently seeing a loss on the 130,000 BTC that it had purchased over the years, making it the public company with the largest bitcoin holdings. But what if the company had invested in Ethereum instead? Ethereum Is A Better Bet In the course of about two years, MicroStrategy had ramped up its BTC buying which ran into billions of dollars. At 130,000 BTC on its balance sheet, the company has spent approximately $4 billion to accumulate the coins. However, even with the coins being bought over time at varying prices, the company is still recording a more than $1 billion loss at the current price of bitcoin.

Specifically, bitcoin’s largest competitor Ethereum. It is no secret that more often than not, Ethereum has been outperforming bitcoin. So it is not a stretch to say that MicroStrategy would be in a better position if it had invested in Ethereum instead of bitcoin, and the numbers prove this to be true. ETH price remains below $1,600 | Source: ETHUSD on TradingView.com A comparison from Blockchain Center shows that MicroStrategy would be $1.47 billion in profit if it had bought ETH. Tracking the purchases that the company has made over the years, it would have 3,541,989 ETH now, worth $5.6 billion. Even at the peak of MicroStrategy’s BTC holdings, the comparison shows that ETH would still have performed way better. In December when MicroStrategy’s holdings were worth just under $8 billion, it would have been worth $16 billion with ETH. Additionally, if the company had invested in Ethereum and then proceeded to stake its ETH, it would have earned approximately $380 million since then. MicroStrategy would’ve done better investing in ETH | Source: Blockchain Center Even now, if the company were to convert all of its BTC holdings to ETH, it would come out to a total of 1,692,762 ETH. At a 4% APR rate, it would be earning an additional $134 million in annual revenue just from staking alone.

Shiba Inu is slowly shedding its gains following the short-lived rally of the crypto market last October 25 as well as its Elon Musk/Dogecoin-inspired price increases. According to data from Coingecko, at the time of this writing, the DOGE spin-off crypto is changing hands at $0.00001217 and has been down by 2.3% over the last 24 hours. It is still enjoying a 12.7% increase for the past seven days and a 23.4% surge over the last two weeks but those numbers used to be higher during the last few days. On October 30, Shiba Inu peaked at $0.00001421 as it increased its market capitalization by almost $2 billion. Currently, the asset is sitting at an overall valuation of $7.177 billion – enough for it to rank 15th among all cryptocurrencies tracked by Coingecko. Related Reading: Rug Pull: 97% Of Crypto Projects On Uniswap Were Scams, Study Reveals Investors Losing Hope for an Immediate Shiba Inu Surge Investors, particularly the members of the CoinMarketCap crypto community, are leaning towards a bearish prediction for the meme dog-themed altcoin this November. According to the findings of Price Estimate tool that aggregated the result of a poll that included 5,133 voters, Shiba Inu is likely to end the month with a trading price of $0.00001093 which is almost 10% lower from the $0.00001209 SHIB price at the time when the voting was conducted. Meanwhile, as for the DeFi asset price towards the end of the year, the decline was slightly lower at 8.46% as it is expected to change hands at $0.00001107. On January 1 this year, SHIB price was at $0.000033. The altcoin, however, failed to sustain its momentum as it was caught in a bearish momentum that slashed more than 63% of its 2022 opening spot price. It only managed to break out of that slump towards the end of October when the crypto market rallied to reclaim the $1 trillion market cap territory and shortly after Elon Musk completed his $44 billion purchase of Twitter. Affected By Dogecoin Movement Over the last few months, Shiba Inu has shown its tendency to follow the directional trend of Dogecoin, which the same crypto community has also given bearish predictions. The dog-themed crypto has recently entered a price correction phase, losing 4.6% of its value over the last 24 hours. Its weekly gain – which stood at over 100% for the past few days – dropped to 80.8% following this recent price dump. As the two digital assets share the same trend almost all the time, Shiba Inu investors are also keeping close watch to Dogecoin to predict when it will move up or go down.

Diving Into THETA Price Action Over the last two months, the crypto market was filled with uncertainty and was also plagued by massive sell-off from different assets. THETA managed to buckle down despite all of these and in doing so had placed its price in a falling wedge pattern as it was bullish but was eventually headed to an immediate correction. Source: TradingView During the last five days, the altcoin’s charts were filled with green candles as it went up by 15% on the way to testing the $1.2 marker. Meanwhile, the asset’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) has entered the overbought zone, indicating the need to somehow put a stop to aggressive buying from traders in order to stabilize the price rally. Moreover, during the recent crypto market rally, THETA price increased rapidly and, owing to its current pattern, needs to undergo correction before resuming its recovery and eventual upward movement.

The sharp correction will happen within the next 30 days as it is likely to plummet all the way down to $0.58. The token has 17 technical indicators that are giving off bearish signals and has settled in the Fear Region of the Fear and Greed Index. Investors and prospective buyers, however, must remember that if THETA stays true to the nature of its pattern, it will try to bounce back and make a rally of its own after its price dump.
