Bitcoin Hits All-Time High
Kay Khemani, Managing Director at Spectre.ai:
“This all-time high does not come as a surprise: it was written on the cards well back since Bitcoin’s bulls held the $30,000 Maginot line which had inspired a false sense of security. The fundamental catalyst that has enabled Bitcoin to hit an all-time record price has no doubt been the recently approved ProShares Bitcoin Futures ETF, which will likely lead to more adoption of the currency triggering a powerful feedback loop that looks certain to ignite the flame for a continued bull run.
"The Bitcoin story has been in somewhat of a holding pattern this year. Favourable regulation for Bitcoin which would see it being weaved into the existing financial fabric has been one of the biggest upside catalysts for the bull run. This still remains a known unknown. The other catalyst, however, is ETF approvals in the U.S. — now that the latter is a reality, it will allow for further institutional adoption of the asset over time and thus lead to increased demand.”
