After a month and a half of Bitcoin’s impressive performance. It seemed like a matter of time before the asset rose to an all-time high near the $20,000 it hit at the end of 2017.
Bitcoin recorded gains of more than 250% from its mid-March low below $ 4000. And its upward momentum was driven by inflation concerns among investors and traders alike. Global central banks have introduced interest rates close to zero while committing to quantitative easing to reduce the economic slowdown caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Expansion policies have led to a decrease in the yields on government bonds. And at the same time, they also caused the decline of the US dollar, which reached its peak in March 2020. Prompting investors to search for investment opportunities elsewhere. Bitcoin benefited from those stimulus policies, and many agree Traders contend that it will continue to attract capital as long as central banks print money.
Crypto experts envision that the cryptocurrency will continue in a relentless bullish trend supported by long-term bullish fundamentals. And will likely reach a previous record high of $ 20,000 next year.
