Rising Interest in Bitcoin Driving Price Surge
The increased number of traders showing interest in Bitcoin could potentially drive its price upwards. Many experts speculate that BTC’s prices will continue trading between the $25,000 and $30,000 levels before entering a bullish cycle. However, a crypto analyst going by the pseudonym Rekt Capital recently expressed a different viewpoint on Twitter. They predicted that BTC might fall below $26,000 before experiencing a surge during the upcoming BTC halving event.
Analysis Based on Historical Price Movements Sparks Debate
Rekt Capital’s analysis of BTC’s potential price movement was based on historical data. However, the comment section was flooded with users expressing their own opinions on the matter. Some supported the analysis, while others dismissed it as false. For instance, one Twitter user argued that a global event like the COVID pandemic should not be considered a valid data point for analyzing BTC’s price.
