Bitcoin is currently trading at $57,641 after falling by 3.63% from Wednesday’s high of $59,350 which came on the back of the Federal Reserve press conference.
Fears about the bond yield curve coupled with inflation estimates saw the US Dollar tumble significantly yesterday, resulting in every asset that traded against it to surge.
Bitcoin is now at a crucial stage in its bull market cycle, with several analysts predicting a new all-time high above $62,000 while others suggest the top may be in following more than one year of consistent upside price action.
It is currently in danger of falling back into a trading range between $53,000 and $57,000 that has been established since since March 9, although it’s worth noting that if the US stock market continues to make record highs, Bitcoin will likely follow in its footsteps.
From a macro perspective, the relative strength index has printed three drives of bearish divergence, with three lower highs against three higher highs of $41,000, $58,500 and $62,00 in terms of price action.
However, both the weekly and monthly scale remain bullish, with more institutional adoption and investment expected throughout the remainder of 2021.

In August 2008, the domain name bitcoin.org was registered. On 31st October 2008, a paper was published called “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”. This was authored by Satoshi Nakamoto, the inventor of Bitcoin. To date, no one knows who this person, or people, are.
The paper outlined a method of using a P2P network for electronic transactions without “relying on trust”. On January 3 2009, the Bitcoin network came into existence. Nakamoto mined block number “0” (or the “genesis block”), which had a reward of 50 Bitcoins.
