When Will Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Price Correct After Biggest Rally of 2019?
Starting on April 2nd, 2019, Bitcoin took off on a rocket toward $5,000 and never looked back. Since then, the first ever cryptocurrency has revived the bull market by breaking back above $6,000 without a second thought, smashing through $7,000, and reaching above $8,000 where it is currently taking a pit stop.
From the start of the rally, Bitcoin has corrected on average only about 8% at each dip, despite doubling in value in less than 45 days.
Crypto speculators believe that the rally is due to a combination of strategic actors or whales, institutional interest finally hitting the market, sidelined money waiting for the bottom reentering, trade tensions and economic turmoil brewing, and a resurgence of retail buying as is indicated by the Coinbase app topping the iPhone app store trending list.
The relative scarcity of the asset and the upcoming halving are also said to have a significant effect on the price of the asset leading up to the event. Each halving reduces the block reward awarded to Bitcoin miners for securing the network. After the next halving, the number of Bitcoins that miners receive will drop from 12.5 to 6.25 BTC.
Bitcoin is currently experiencing yet another pullback within the 8% range it has followed since the rally first kicked off. Sooner or later, the price of Bitcoin is bound to correct, however, it may not happen as soon as most cryptocurrency investors are expecting, and according to some, may not happen at all.
