Bitcoin Bounces After Battering

After consistent gains over the first weeks of 2020, Bitcoin plunged in tandem alongside other markets amidst recent planet-spanning, coronavirus-inspired panic. With global markets plunging and the Bitcoin price failing to hold up, many have questioned the asset’s utility in the wake of the volatility.

Drastic responses to the mass selloff have seen the Federal Reserve and other central banks get particularly creative with policy. For many of Bitcoin’s most committed, the liquidity injections serve as another good reason to hold the scarce asset.

For now, the central bank measures seem to be working as intended. The US stock market crept higher today, proving that some appetite for risk was indeed returning to markets. [Bloomberg]

Bitcoin has been performing well too. Over the last 24-hours, investors bought up more than $18 billion worth of the cryptocurrency. At the time of writing, a single Bitcoin trades for just under $6,200. Prior to today’s moves, it was down at $5,200.

Of course, it wasn’t long before the return of optimism inspired the return of bullish Bitcoin price predictions. Earlier today, Samson Mow of Blockstream nailed his colors to the proverbial mast with a rare price call.

In the above tweet, he states that Bitcoin will trade above $10,000 again by its halving in May. Just a month ago, such a prediction might have been seen as bearish. However, with Bitcoin needing to gain more than 60 percent in two months, and having just endured some of its most extreme volatility to date, traditional market analysts would find Mow’s price call questionable.
