2017 and 2020 Are Similar… But Different

Today, Bitcoin is flirting with the $16,000 mark. Its peak during the last 24 hours stands at $15977. That’s an 11.49% growth from the day before, putting the cryptocurrency at a mere 20% below its ATH.

That places bitcoin as the cryptocurrency with the best recovery since its ATH, surpassing any other competitor by a large percentage.

And the Bitcoin fundamentals also seem to support traders’ optimism. There is greater regulatory clarity, more institutional investors are jumping in, and large financial firms have legitimized Bitcoin as a reliable asset and a good investment. The world’s economies are going through a crisis that has established Bitcoin’s reputation as a hedge asset, and it has played a major role in its price appreciation.

Is Bitcoin Near a New ATH?

It’s hard to predict if Bitcoin could mirror 2017’s hype and reach a new ATH. Generally, an ATH is a robust psychological barrier in any market. Still, analysts and famous traders believe Bitcoin may be at least close to touching the line of the $20K.

For example, Mati Greenspan was quite excited when Bitcoin broke the resistance in the bullish channel:

Also, 10T Holdings co-founder Dan Trapiero gave some credit to the stock-to-flow model which has been widely criticizes as innacurate. If this model tells the truth, Bitcoin could be very close to having a six-figure price tag.

Also, eToro’s Brad Michelson compared what is happening in 2020 with the crypto hype of 2017:

So perhaps there’s a reason to be bullish, but please learn from 2018 and never invest what you cannot afford to lose.
