“Bitcoin Surges 12% to Reach Fresh 2-Year High, Bulls Return”


Bitcoin prices have experienced a significant surge recently, reaching their highest point since November 2021. This digital currency has been boosted by a combination of bullish factors, attracting a surge of new investments. According to Marc P. Bernegger, cofounder of crypto fund AltAlpha Digital, this surge is due to the increasing popularity of Bitcoin ETFs and the upcoming Bitcoin Halving event, which is driving additional inflows. As a result, the world’s most valuable cryptocurrency reached a market value of $57,416.43 on CoinMarketCap in less than 24 hours.

Other market observers have also chimed in, highlighting the various factors contributing to the uptrend in Bitcoin prices. Jacob Joseph, research analyst at CCData, pointed out the crucial role played by funds that offer exposure to cryptocurrency, as evidenced by the recent surge in trading volume for US spot Bitcoin ETFs and MicroStrategy’s acquisition of an additional 3,000 BTC. Joe DiPasquale, CEO of BitBull Capital, also noted the historical demand for Bitcoin, with large investors such as Microstrategy and other fund managers making significant purchases.

Julio Moreno, head of research for CryptoQuant, emphasized the impact of sizeable US investors and a significant price premium on Coinbase exchange, indicating high demand for Bitcoin. Marouane Garcon, cofounder of The Real-World Asset Exchange, cited multiple variables contributing to the price surge, including the approval of a spot-based Bitcoin ETF and the news of Blackrock’s BTC holdings surpassing $7 billion. He also noted the increasing acceptance and adoption of Bitcoin by financial institutions and the upcoming halving event, which has historically had a positive effect on its price.

In addition to these factors, Bitcoin mining has also become profitable again, further driving its value up. As the narrative around Bitcoin continues to evolve and gain mainstream attention, the future looks promising for this digital asset.
