Uniquely Volatile Asset
Yesterday, the bearish news from the Upbit hack soon flipped positive as the crypto exchanges took note of the situation. This points to the considerable volatility in the market. Only last month, Xi Xinping’s announcement on blockchain caused a 40% surge in price. These shock events question the strength of the market and the gullibility of the traders.
Nevertheless, Mati Greenspan, a leading crypto analyst, believes that Bitcoin is in a bull market is still intact. The recent pullback could necessarily mark the low of the corrections consistent with Bitcoin’s previous movements. He tweeted,
From peak to trough # fell 53% since the highs of June until the lows of November. This movement is consistent with the sort of mid-bull-cycle pullbacks we’re used to seeing from this uniquely volatile asset.
As the month is coming to a close, Bitcoin is currently on its way to record four consecutive months of bearish pressures. On-Chain Crypto analyst, Willy Woo, noted that a break above $8300 previous month opening is critical for the bulls.
On the other hand, billionaire investor, Michael Novogratz suggests that $7500 will be the key for the monthly close.
The halving in May is likely to establish a bullish trend. However, the selling pressure from miners before the halving seems to be hurting the price. As the rewards to miners will reduce, the selling volume will decrease as well.
Nevertheless, the market accounts for future valuations and effects. However, the current set-up of the market is unique compared to previous halvings. The maturity and the requirement for returns of investment for miners project slower growth in price than the previous times.
