Bitcoin (BTC) Soars 10% on Strong Momentum: A Change Coming?

Bitcoin

The coronavirus pandemic has had a highly damaging effect on the capital markets, and eventually, the effect was felt in other asset classes like cryptocurrencies as well. While this did affect the world’s biggest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has made a remarkable recovery over the past 24 hours.

BTC gained 10% in the last 24 hours, and the total value of the entire crypto market soared by $14 billion. Bitcoin was trading at $6,580 this morning in Singapore, and it seems likely that the cryptocurrency is going to be in focus among traders today.

Rally Across the Board

It should be noted that Bitcoin was not the only major gainer in the crypto market in the past 24 hours. Other than BTC, Ethereum (ETH) soared by 7%, while Ripple (XRP) gained 5%. Ethereum is the world’s second-biggest cryptocurrency by market cap, while XRP is the third-biggest, and this sort of a move suggests that the tide might be turning for the crypto space as a whole.

Earlier in March, the crypto space took a massive beating as it suffered from a damaging sell-off due to the oil price crisis. Back on March 12, the entire cryptocurrency market lost $93.5 billion in value due to the aforementioned sell-off.

>> Is Bitcoin (BTC) a Buy After the Recent Market Sell-Off?

The surprising thing for many crypto analysts has been the fact that Bitcoin, which ultimately is the bell weather of the crypto market, suffered in conjunction with the stock markets. In the past, BTC had been regarded as ‘digital gold’ and as a ‘hedge’ against the equity markets by many experts, a safe-haven stock if you will. However, BTC has not behaved in this manner over the past weeks, and even after the recent rally, it is still trading at a lower level than it was at the start of this year.
