Can Bitcoin Repeat the history, the crypto bull run of 2017?

The ongoing rally seems amazing and it rekindles the memory of 2017’s which was called ‘bubble’ by many and monumental feat for the crypto ecosystem by others.

However, many analysts such as Mike Novogratz and Fundstrat’s Tom Lee predicted positive price growth of Bitcoin in 2019, who believed Bitcoin will achieve a significantly high price in 2019. Moreover, Mr. Lee strongly pointed out that the major contribution of institutional investors/customers will be the key reason behind the bull rally of Bitcoin this year.
