Top 5 Surprising Reasons For Bitcoin Skyrocketing Price
Speaking on market scenario, there can be no solid reasons that might have backed the recent bull rally. However, the analyst and market researchers suggested possible reasons listed below;
The US banks Holding Cryptos
The bank regulator in the US Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) recently permitted them to hold the cryptocurrencies on behalf of their customers. The banks could now hold the cryptographic keys and offer the crypto custody services to their customers. This news bought a huge wave in the crypto market and this could be one of the major reasons for the Bitcoin bull run.
Growing Defi Market
As Coinpedia reported earlier, quarter 2 has witnessed a huge growth in the Defi space with more than 30 percent growth in the funds locked. The tendency of the traders towards the Defi space possibly be the biggest reason that led to the uptrend in the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum. The crypto community is shouting 2020 as the year of Defi while 2019 was considered as the year of IEO.
Increase in the BTC Hash rate
Recently, the bitcoin hash rate attained its all-time high of 124TH/s. The hash rate had suffered a downtrend after the halving event which occurred in the first half of May 2020. With the increase in the hash rate, mining activity too soared which may have resulted in the surge in the bitcoin price.
Dollar Crash and Increase in Inflation
The current pandemic situation has bought the world’s economy to its knees. Although the international market is capitalized on the USD, the COVID-19 has shaken the dollar roots, giving birth to inflation. Therefore, people are finding other options to safeguard their funds due to the high uncertainty on the dollar.
As Gold proponent, Peter Schiff described in his debate over ‘Bitcoin and Gold’, Dollar index is tanking, people are trying to get out of the dollar.
I think the dollar is gonna crash
While we may not get out of this COVID recession very soon, people are eagerly looking to invest in potential assets such. This might have boosted the demand in digital currencies such as Bitcoin and traditional assets like Gold.
FOMO among the Trader
Bitcoin and many other major altcoins had a bullish trend, with new altcoins entering the top 10 list for the first time. Hence, the FOMO factors might be surrounding the traders which tend them to invest in their favorite digital asset. Specifically, as FOMO begins, Bitcoin dominance began increasing on the CMC chart. As per Coinmarketcap, Bitcoin dominance is up by 7 percent, making it 62.7 percent. As Joe DiPasquale, CEO of crypto fund manager BitBull Capital says;
“Meanwhile, bitcoin FOMO [fear of missing out] is currently on display as BTC dominance is rising again and [altcoins] are posting losses as BTC rallies today. The FOMO, coupled with increasing volumes indicates that this rally may finally push bitcoin to conclusively beat yearly highs,”
Conclusively, Bitcoin had a major breakout recently and successfully maintained above the $10000 mark. However, if continued with the same trend, the predictions done on Bitcoin by crypto bulls like Max Keiser, Pomp, etc might also be seen as reality.
