Why has Bitcoin been so bullish lately?

There are many reasons that have made the cryptocurrency reach its all-time high. While the pandemic in itself has added to the trade market’s uncertain behavior, the cryptocurrency has been lauded by famous Wall Street analysts over the past few days. Recently, PayPal has also allowed users to purchase BTC.

The cryptocurrency has seen a price surge of over 160% in 2020 due to this acknowledgment and adoption by major buyers, investors, and institutions.

Per JPMorgan’s report, big investors have also been using commodities markets to speculate on Bitcoin’s price.

The growing adoption of blockchain technology and blockchain platforms has only paved the way for the growth of cryptocurrencies over the past couple of years. Analysts are of the opinion that Bitcoin, along with the rest of the crypto market, will see substantial price growth in the upcoming year 2021.

Anthony Pompliano is a crypto investor who believes that the cryptocurrency has the potential to rise to the $100,000 mark before 2022. Pompliano explained that the demand for BTC has been increasing rapidly, and with such low-interest rates, the cryptocurrency has been able to skyrocket over the past few months.

Other analysts like Tom Fitzpatrick from Citibank believe that the cryptocurrency could hit $318,000 before 2021 concludes, and BTIG analysts expect the price to hit the $50,000 mark by the end of this year. Fitzpatrick also referred to Bitcoin BTC as the “21st-centurygold”.BTC ALL TIME HIGH PIC 2
