Bullmarket Loading in 3…2…1

Winter has turned to summer, mass Lambo orders incoming

It appears that a humble intern at Cointelegraph inadvertently triggered what could be the next bull market by mistakenly tweeting confirmation of the BlackRock ETF.

After months of a stagnant market and many predicting further declines, that tweet catapulted the market out of its indecision, leading many to realize they were unprepared for the ETF launch.

Narrative of the Week: Where Are We?

The recent rally in Bitcoin's value to over $35K, triggered initially by a misleading tweet and fuelled later by speculations around potential approval of a Bitcoin spot ETF in the U.S., highlights a bullish sentiment in the crypto market despite underlying caution due to speculative trading and regulatory uncertainties

  • The market's positive reaction to the courts favoring Grayscale Investments' ETF application and the SEC's decision not to appeal, alongside BlackRock's ETF application progress, underscored the heightened anticipation and its impact on investor sentiment

  • Despite the rally, a noticeable drop in Bitcoin blockchain transaction activity over a month, and the dominance of derivative trading over spot trading suggest the rally is more speculative rather than driven by fundamental economic activity within the Bitcoin network

  • The trend of smart money moving away from holding stablecoins to buying positions in Bitcoin indicates a risk-on appetite among market participants, hinting at the early stages of a potential bull market
