Bitcoin Rally Sparks Optimism in Cryptocurrency Market

The global cryptocurrency market cap experienced a notable surge of 3.6% in the last 24 hours, reaching around $2.54 trillion, according to data available at CoinGecko.

Bitcoin has seen a remarkable 50% increase in value this year, with a significant portion of the growth occurring in recent weeks, coinciding with increased inflows into US-listed Bitcoin funds.

In the week leading up to March 1, net flows into the 10 largest US spot Bitcoin funds totaled $2.17 billion, with more than half of that amount directed into BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust, as reported by LSEG data.

Edul Patel, CEO of Mudrex, commented on the Bitcoin rally, noting, “There is a positive sentiment across the market with institutional demand, spot Bitcoin ETFs growth, and the approaching halving event.”

Furthermore, Patel highlighted the significant portion of Bitcoin held by long-term investors, stating, “Out of 19.6 million Bitcoin currently circulating in the market, 13.6 million, which is close to 70%, is in the possession of hodlers who have been holding on to Bitcoin over a one-year period, showing increasing long-term investment sentiment. If this trend continues, we are likely to see Bitcoin beating its all-time high any day now.”
