Bitcoin Breaches $46,000, Eyes $50K As Bullish Sentiment Returns

For the first time since the spot ETFs’ debut trade on January 11, Bitcoin (BTC) has surpassed $46,000. According to data from Coingecko, BTC had increased 3.4% in the previous day to $46,075 at the time of publication, maintaining a 6% increase over the previous seven days.

Whale Appetite Up For BTC

As a result, Grayscale sold enormous quantities of Bitcoin, which dropped in price. It was trading below $39,000 at one point. However, it appears that the sell-off is ended, and Bitcoin is rising once more, partly due to large holders acquiring the asset.

Meanwhile, Markus Thielen, head of research at Matrixport and founder of 10x Research, says that Bitcoin (BTC) is headed towards $48,000 in the near future following its breakout driven by a solid track record of gains during the Chinese New Year festival.

Since bitcoin often rises by more than 10% around Chinese New Year, beginning on February 10, the following few days are extremely important statistically, according to Thielen’s research from Thursday.
