Analysts Predict US Presidential Election Outcome Could ...

How the US Elections Have and Will Impact the Price of Bitcoin

What Happened to the Price of Bitcoin in 2012 and 2016?

Presidential elections in the United States happen every four years — and it's interesting to note that they follow the same cycle as Bitcoin halving events.
‍Let's begin by taking a look at how Bitcoin fared in the past two U.S. elections. Back in 2012, when the crypto assets space was immature and in a very nascent phase, BTC was fairly muted when Barack Obama secured a second term, and stubbornly hovered around the $10.90 mark. Fast forward to November 2013, one year on from his re-election, and Bitcoin had surged by 2,221% to hit $253. However, it would be foolish to suggest that Obama had anything to do with this.
President Donald Trump's arrival in 2016 was much more interesting. When the result was first confirmed, Bitcoin shot up by 3.8% — from $709 to $736. Back then, the short-term surge was linked to the fact that Trump's victory took the stock market by surprise — and created uncertainty and volatility internationally. This resulted in demand for safe haven assets, and Bitcoin is regarded as one of them.
Shortly before the result was announced, crypto hedge fund manager Jacob Eliosoff had told Coindesk: "[If Trump wins] it would be an epic disaster in a bunch of respects — economic, geopolitical, democratic — and in the fear and chaos Bitcoin would be a defensive asset people could turn to."

How Will the U.S. Election in 2020 Affect Bitcoin?

The million-dollar (ahem, the 100 BTC) question is how digital currencies will react to the result this time. This presidential election is unusual for the markets because of how the coronavirus pandemic is dominating the news cycle. COVID could also end up affecting the speed of the result because of the volume of mail-in ballots.
It's highly possible that Bitcoin could remain fairly muted throughout the election if the result is clear. But here's a disclaimer: the outcome is shaping to be anything but.
Normally, the result is called by U.S. news networks in the early hours of the morning that follows the vote. But some experts are warning that ballots could take days or weeks to process this time around. All of this would create uncertainty for the U.S. dollar and the stock market, and this could contribute to a surge in demand for the likes of Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Donald Trump has also suggested that he may challenge the result of the upcoming U.S. election if he believes it is rigged. This would also spook the stock market, and again would work in the favor of cryptocurrencies and precious metals.
As you can see, the overarching theme here is certainty. Digital assets are unlikely to move much if there's a clear result and a peaceful transition of power — but expect turbulence if things start to get messy in Washington.
It is important to stress that not everyone agrees with this idea. Recent Bitcoin news has cast doubt on whether the cryptocurrency is the safe haven asset that everyone says it is — and some analysts argue that BTC is more closely correlated to the stock market than we think. In this scenario, we could see Bitcoin move in step with equities as they digest the news. Although Wall Street thinks a Trump win is unlikely, a second term for the Republicans is regarded as the preferable option in financial terms because of how Trump favors tax cuts.
‍Irrespective of who wins, there's going to be no shortage of crypto news...and there are so many questions to answer. Will the Fed finally start looking into CBDCs in a meaningful way? Will a stimulus package be approved? Are interest rates going to go negative? Will the USD weaken? Will Bitcoin return to its all-time high of $20,000 and embark on a new bull run? The rollercoaster ride for cryptocurrencies is far from over.

2020 was undoubtfully an eventful year, due to the aftermath of COVID-19, for the global economy. Bitcoin, also known as "Digital Gold", was also unable to avoid the impact of the pandemic. Earlier this year, Bitcoin was moving sideways from the 8,000 to 9,000 US dollar levels, but when the global stock market plunged around the end of March, it fell to around 4,000 USD in a very short period of time.
Many economists were pessimistic about the prompt recovery of the global economy based on past experience of the subprime financial crisis and the worsening of the COVID-19 situation. Nevertheless, thanks to the emergency stimulus policies from many countries, the global stock market rose up again very quickly and showed record-breaking high points every day as if nothing happened. Bitcoin also broke through the 10,000 USD line in August this year, rising to the point close to 12,200 USD. In the course of Bitcoin's rise, the fluctuation of Bitcoin moves almost like the fluctuation of the U.S. stock market, showing a perfect coupling with the U.S. stock market.

The US presidential election is scheduled for November 3, 2020. Financial and cryptocurrency traders around the world paying close attention to this election, and we know why by checking the chart above which shows NASDAQ prices before and after the past presidential election.
At the time of the US presidential election on November 6, 2012, the NASDAQ was moving sideways around the 3,000 USD level, but it showed a steep rise right after the election, breaking the 4,000 USD level the following year, showing tremendous upside. The NASDAQ flow chart at the time of the US election on November 8, 2016, is similar. NASDAQ, which was about 5,400 USD during the 2016 election, showed a rise, breaking the 6,000 USD mark the following year after the election. Because of this, financial and cryptocurrency traders around the world have keen eyes for this year's US election, and the majority of traders are expecting a huge rise in global stock markets and Bitcoin prices. Also, in the case of Bitcoin, the expectation is increasing even more since this is the post halving season.
