Resilience of Bears and Bitcoin Halving
The resilience of the bears over the price of Bitcoin in the market has become a thing of concern to most BTC enthusiasts, traders and investors. When to see BTC around its recorded yearly price high has been a cause for agitation within the crypto community, especially among the newcomers in Bitcoin trading and investment.
Majority of cryptocurrency analysts believe that the much-awaited Bitcoin halving will cause a great turnaround to the price of BTC, as they unanimously put the two previous halving conducted into consideration.
According to the history of the previous Bitcoin halving, a year after the event is expected to welcome a parabolic price uptrend of the digital currency. The event is scheduled to hold every four years. The last time it was conducted was 2016, and the next Bitcoin halving is expected to take place in May 2020.
To be frank, halving has so far been favorable to the price of BTC. It was also envisaged that the effect of 2016 Bitcoin halving aided the price of the cryptocurrency to record its all-time high of $20,000 in January 2018.
Howbeit, it is presently not certain if the forthcoming halving will positively impact the price of BTC in the market, considering the stance of some crypto analysts who claimed that the halving has already priced in.
Other cryptocurrencies are also expected to partly benefit from the event if the effect is positive. The sovereignty of Bitcoin over other digital currencies has given the king of coins the major control over prices of tokens in the market.
For instance, as soon as BTC started its parabolic price movement that aided it to reach $20,000 in 2018, virtually all other top cryptocurrencies also followed suit. So, this upcoming Bitcoin halving could as well bring fortune to the paths of other minor and major coins if the prevalent expectation eventually plays out.
Meanwhile, the price of Bitcoin is still trading below $7,200 resistance level. Its next trend can only be envisaged, it cannot be ascertained. At the time of writing, BTC is trading at $7,135.20, with 0.11% price uptrend in the last 24 hours.
