cyptouser6 months agoCryptocurrencies News150

Bitcoin (BTC) continues demonstrating its market resilience with a substantial uptick in its value over the past week.

On a 24-hour cycle, Bitcoin’s value has grown by 10.38%, and over the last seven days, it has seen an impressive 20.42% increase. This surge, which brings the leading cryptocurrency’s price to $33,916 as of press time, underscores the influence of various market factors and potential developments on Bitcoin’s market trends.

Between Oct. 21 and 23, Bitcoin’s value hovered around the $31,000 mark, maintaining a relatively stable trend. However, a significant bullish movement was seen on Oct. 23, with Bitcoin’s price sharply rising from around $31,000 to just under $35,000. A substantial spike in trading volume, indicative of robust buying pressure, accompanied this uptick.

Following this surge, a slight correction occurred this morning, Oct. 24, as Bitcoin’s price pulled back to around $33,987, according to the last recorded candlestick. This adjustment might portray a normalized market response following a significant peak, reinforcing the dynamic nature of crypto markets.

Simultaneously, recent reports suggest potential market developments that may contribute to the digital asset’s performance. As reported by Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas, global asset manager BlackRock indicates plans to seed its iShares spot Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF). Although the company hasn’t yet confirmed its purchase or revealed detailed plans, such a move could further stir up the market.

BlackRock’s potential involvement in Bitcoin ETF seeding may provide additional depth to Bitcoin’s market narrative. It highlights institutional investors’ growing interest and anticipated entry into the crypto landscape. Further, last week’s inflows into currently available digital asset funds rose 340% week-on-week.

However, it’s vital to remember that while these developments contribute to the overall market environment, Bitcoin’s price dynamics remain subject to many other influencers.

At the time of press, Bitcoin is ranked #1 by market cap and the BTC price is up 10.4% over the past 24 hours. BTC has a market capitalization of $662.2 billion with a 24-hour trading volume of $47.09 billion. Learn more ›
