Top Social Gainers for Monday, April 8th, 2019
Here are today's biggest developing stories in crypto based on Santiment's data:
xvg/verge (446+ combined mentions within 24hrs)
For some reason, XVG's recent jump from 182 sats to 203 sats (+11.6%) got the crowd really excited. Considering the recent altcoin roulette in March which saw 1D gains from 30% to even over 100% for some coins, it sure doesn't take much to excite people about XVG.
Perhaps the idea of XVG making a run from the bottom all the way to November 2017 highs is keeping many hopeful out there.
Besides that, the crowd also noticed some arbitraging opportunities where XVG is trading around 2.5x higher on Bithumb than Binance. However, it appears that Bithumb have yet to enable their deposits & withdrawals following their recent hack.

Reddit user AceOrigins posted an image of a 4chan Anon's Bitcoin price prediction for the next few years back in January 2019. This reddit post have since gotten 1,200 updates and 390++ comments.

July 2020 - BTC ~ $56,000
November 2020 - BTC ~$87,000
Now that Bitcoin is around $5,200+, perhaps the April 2019 prediction is pretty spot on.
The post eventually prompted many reddit users to set an alert via the RemindMebot to check in again in the future.
Who knows, perhaps 4chan Anon might be just correct, and we could all use the hopium. Remindme!
