Bitcoin (BTC) bulls appear to be back as the crypto market takes off despite the Fed rate hike and recession fears. Crypto evangelists Binance CEO “CZ”, MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor, and Galaxy Investment’s Mike Novogratz were bullish on the crypto market before the FOMC meeting and thinks the recession will indeed drive Bitcoin adoption.
Bitcoin Accumulation Rising Amid High Inflation and Recession FUD
Bitcoin (BTC) price skyrocketed by 29% in July, making a high of $24,294 after 2 months on July 29. The U.S. Fed rate hike and negative GDP report fail to pull down the market rally due to rising positive sentiments. The Crypto Fear & Greed Index has jumped to 42 from 11 last month, making Bitcoin attractive above the $20k mark.
Binance CEO “CZ” in an interview with CNBC eases fear surrounding rising inflation and recession. He believes Bitcoin (BTC) is bearish above the $20k level as the last peak around $20k in 2017 acts as a strong psychological barrier.
He said the Bitcoin fundamentals are strong, money supply and Nasdaq 100 correlation are all secondary factors. The regulatory landscape improvement, higher inflation, and recession talks will help drive Bitcoin adoption.
He asserts logically the crypto market should move opposite to the stock market, but crypto is tied to macro factors these days due to its smaller market size. Both the crypto and equities markets are rising despite the Fed rate hike and recession fears.
“The cryptocurrency market is so small that whenever the big ship tank or when stock markets crash, people want to hold cash. Today, most people who are trading cryptocurrencies also trade stocks. So right now it’s positively correlated, which is illogical, but it’s just the way it is right now.”
Bitcoin analyst Willy Woo in a tweet on July 30 claims the Bitcoin accumulation is rising. He shared his personal Bitcoin capitulation and bear market bottom chart depicting historical Bitcoin movements. Bitcoin bulls can drive a rally.
Bitcoin evangelist and MicroStrategy’s CEO Michael Saylor believes Bitcoin will drive wave crypto regulation and rationalization as adoption continues to rise. In a recent tweet, he said:
“This month the need for bitcoin climbed to another all-time high.”
