Meanwhile, the maiden crypto asset was at press time changing hands at the price of $50,066, which suggests a 4.13% gain in the last 24 hours, in addition to advancing 16.42% across the previous seven days and increasing 16.43% on its monthly chart, as per the most recent data.
At the same time, crypto trading expert Jelle pointed out that Bitcoin has broken the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement before the halving for the first time in its history, making it the “strongest start to a new bull cycle, ever” and printing new highs, according to the analysis shared in an X post on February 13.
Moreover, crypto analyst Ali Martinez highlighted that “it seems the market has just emerged from a period of anxiety and has re-entered a new phase of belief,” suggesting “we might see additional upward momentum for Bitcoin before reaching the peak of euphoria that characterizes the end of the bullish cycle.”
All things considered, the flagship decentralized finance (DeFi) asset seems to have triggered an unstoppable bullish rally, possibly even ending up at a new all-time high, surpassing the previous record it reached in November 2021 when it was briefly trading around the price of $69,000.
