Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion
Last week, the influx of new traders led to the Robinhood trading app’s breakdown and a couple of other brokerages, forcing other crypto exchange firms to restrict deposits and registrations of new accounts. As if coordinated, the world’s wealthiest man, Elon Musk and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, added the hashtag #Bitcoin to their respective bios. This resulted in a 10 percent rally on the 28th of January and a 15.3 percent rally on the 29th of January before a correction back to below $35,000 on the 31st of January.
Even though many may take these price movements positively, when many amateurish traders extort such markets and generate profits, those acts are deemed deceitful by authorities. They can lead to an ‘unhealthy’ atmosphere. The U.S. SEC would indeed be looking to install tighter policies for new traders’ admissions into trading platforms.
Additionally, CryptoQuant CEO Ki-Young Ju asserted that the recent substantial outflow of Bitcoin from popular crypto exchange firm, Coinbase Pro, might be a bullish sign. As per data by CryptoQuant, more than 15,220 BTC worth almost half a billion dollars exited Coinbase Pro on the 31st of January. According to Ju, the significant departure might be a result of massive over-the-counter transactions by institutional investors.
