Buckle up, crypto enthusiasts, because Bitcoin is on a roll! After a brief dip, the king of cryptocurrency has resumed its upward climb, surging 1.34% to reach a cool $53,311 as of Thursday (data via CoinDesk).

Ethereum, the world’s second-largest crypto by market cap, is leading the charge, rising 3% to trade at $2,845 as of 14.50 GMT.

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The market optimism around Bitcoin halving continues as Bitcoin has regained a $1 trillion market cap above $52,000 and is just 30 percent away from the all-time high. One event investors should pay close attention to is the recent Genesis court approval to redeem its Grayscale Bitcoin Trust holdings valued at $1.3 billion and potential impacts on the cryptocurrency market”.

Experts cite dual drivers for crypto rally: ETF approvals and BTC halving:

Industry analysts point to the recent approval of BTC ETFs as a major catalyst for increased buying pressure within the crypto market.

The upcoming BTC halving in April 2024, which will reduce the issuance of new bitcoins, is also seen as a potential driver of price appreciation, although some caution against overly simplistic interpretations of historical halving impacts.
