Bitcoin Poised for Record High Despite Market Downturn: Expert Insights


In the world of tumultuous and unpredictable cryptocurrency, a glimmer of hope is sparked by Bitcoin, the revered pioneer of the decentralized digital currencies. Noted cryptocurrency expert, Michael Van De Poppe, has once more cast a promising light on the potential of Bitcoin (BTC) to hit a fresh high before the much-anticipated halving event begins.

Currently, the fluctuating market landscape sees Bitcoin hounded by a fresh wave of bearish activity, potent enough to inject a stark wave of negativity into the market. Over the next few days, such a shift could have a profound impact.

Despite these downturns, however, Poppe stands firm in his optimism for Bitcoin’s upward trajectory. He suggests even in the face of this stinging decline, the digital currency will scale new and lofty heights before the impending Bitcoin Halving, likely to occur later this month.

Poppe identifies the current climate of Bitcoin as one of consolidation. Drawing on his expertise, he has distinguished two critical levels in the lower timeframes. One is the $67,000 consolidation point, playing a key role as a support level, and the other is the $71,700 point, signaling a final surge towards the peak.

Poppe’s realistic but encouraging expectations for Bitcoin are conveyed through his prediction that the opening of the week would spark significant market movement. He argues that should the esteemed digital asset retain its $67,000 position, this could signal one last surge toward the maximum plateau before halving commences.

Echoing his firm faith in these potentials, Poppe asserts that should either of the two critical levels be reached, it will shape Bitcoin’s trajectory, thereby fuelling his hope of a pre-halving, record-breaking high. While acknowledging the calm nature of the ongoing consolidation, he underscores the cardinal levels of $67,000 and $71,700. He upholds that the development of either could determine the future course for Bitcoin. His confidence shines through his conviction that the period will usher in one last high before halving.

However, he injects a touch of caution into this optimistic outlook, owing to the currency’s recent decline. His prudent observation suggests caution is warranted in dealing with this sudden and steep price action. As he warns, “You do not want to chase those massive green candles”.

Poppe advocates measured market engagement when Bitcoin’s price is down by 15% to 40%. For those mulling over investing in altcoins, he suggests waiting for a more opportune moment when they’re down by 25% to 60%.

As it stands, Bitcoin is priced at $65,843, showing a slump of over 5% in the daily timeframe. Its trading volume has surged impressively, with a 66% increase over the day, while conversely, the market cap signals a 5% drop.

Bitcoin’s trajectory since its March peak of $73,000 has seen a fall of about 10%. One factor potentially contributing to this dip is the flood of funds into US Spot Bitcoin Exchange-Traded funds (ETFs), which are now gradually stabilizing.

Data from Wu Blockchain indicates these products recorded a net outflow of $85.84 million at the start of the week. BlackRock ETF IBIT reported a net influx of $165 million, whereas the Grayscale ETF GBTC logged a one-day outflow of $302 million. Currently, the cumulative net inflow for the Bitcoin spot ETFs stands at a cool $12.04 billion.

Regardless of the vicissitudes that rock the cryptocurrency market, the waning of Bitcoin never appears to be imminent. Indeed, the faith and optimism of experts like Poppe seem poised to drive it to dazzling new heights despite the occasional setbacks. The next significant milestone Bitcoin halving event is likely to set a riveting chapter in its story.
