The fundamental reasons for the growth remained the same for a while: inflationary pressure, low-interest environment, growing institutional interest — the catalysts for the breakup.
However, a massive flow of evidence that Bitcoin is swiftly turning into a mainstream asset created a new wave of demand and pushed the price above the critical level. As FXStreet previously reported , a combination of at least four significant events served as a pre-condition for a rally ahead of Christmas. One of them is another whale ready to flow into Bitcoin's waterway. The news triggered a massive bull's race on the market as traders and investors anticipated a massive spike fo demand.
The holiday season was dominated by talks about the digital future and a transition to cryptocurrencies. However, the rally ended in a devastating sell-off and a year-long crypto winter. This time around, the market is driven by the financial establishment that throws in large sums of money and ready to support the market if it starts rolling down. The retail crowd that engineered the previous boom could not provide a backstop or reversing the trend.
Bitcoin is now regarded as a store of value and a go-to asset in hard times that can become a global reserve asset that will dethrone devaluing U. The greenback and the precious metal underperformed Bitcoin in as investors increasingly opted for the digital currency as a hedge against economic risks. And this is something that may become a self-sustained prophecy. Bitcoin is in a long-term bull trend, and this time everything may be different; that's all fine. The MACD is above zero, promising further growth.
The signal lines keep growing in favor of further growth after forming a Black Cross. Both charts give a good chance for a correction before the ascending continues, heading for the same goal of 18, USD. On H4, the perspectives of growth after a correction are also bright. The Stochastic remains in the overbought area, additionally hinting at a correction before further growth.
The aim of the pullback might be the support level of 17, USD. The goal of the growth is the same as on larger timeframes — 18, USD. The sky-rocketing of the BTC has no fundamental driver — you can try any explanations but obviously, the Bitcoin is pushed upwards by the tide of common excitement.
To some extent, the BTC rate is supported by the lack of trust of investors in normal fiat assets; market participants keep looking for new means of investing and making money — indeed, in such a situation, the crypto market attracts attention. The increase in the BTC price pulled the capitalization up as well — for the first time ever it was estimated higher than billion USD.
Yesterday the capitalization approached billion USD, which is the all-time high-frequency. For the last time, the record was renewed in , when the capitalization reached billion USD.
Currently, the transfers over the Bitcoin network are on the decline. BTC saw around , transactions, as seen on a regular day. BTC on-chain activity and pending transactions often pick up during times of growing volatility , especially with growing prices. But the actual rally happens within an hour or even minutes, without warning. The rally was followed by lowered on-chain activity as the prices unraveled.
It is difficult to estimate which exchange had the biggest effect or triggered the BTC rally. Most of the BTC trades are distributed evenly across crypto-to-crypto exchanges. Smaller transfers continue, as USDT and other stablecoins allow for arbitrage and moving funds between exchanges. Chinese traders, however, went on to support altcoins, and achieved robust gains for a basket of digital coins and tokens with interests in the Chinese market.
Leading exchanges have switched to using this type of asset, and the token transfers are also related to price action. BTC has settled to a volatility of 4. At this point, the transfers have slowed down, and BTC seems to enter another period of relative stability.
