Bitcoin Faces Pre-Halving Drop Risk, but CEOs Stay Bullish 

As Bitcoin gears up for its impending halving, analysts are sounding the alarm on a potential dip in its price. According to crypto analyst Rekt Capital, Bitcoin could be on the brink of entering a pre-halving “danger zone,” historically characterized by price drops in the weeks leading up to the halving event.

Rekt Capital highlighted that Bitcoin has shown retracement patterns in the 14 to 28 days preceding previous halving events. During the 2016 halving, Bitcoin witnessed a staggering 40% decline, while in 2020, it experienced a 20% drop.

The analyst’s observations are supported by data illustrating pre-halving price retracement zones, marked by red highlights, followed by post-halving price booms indicated by green highlights.

Rekt Capital’s Prediction

Back in January, Rekt Capital forecasted a “pre-halving rally” approximately 60 days ahead of the halving, followed by a “pre-halving retrace” occurring roughly one to three weeks prior to the event. This prediction materialized as Bitcoin surged in mid-February and surpassed its previous cycle’s all-time high in March, reaching an unprecedented peak before the upcoming halving.

Despite the looming uncertainty, the next halving is projected to take place in just under 33 days, on April 20, according to CoinMarketCap. However, Bitcoin has already experienced an 8.5% decline from its recent all-time high of $73,835 on March 14, currently hovering around $67,537.

Optimism Amidst Volatility

Despite the potential challenges ahead, top figures in the cryptocurrency industry remain bullish on Bitcoin’s long-term prospects. Binance CEO Richard Teng expressed confidence in Bitcoin’s ability to break records, predicting a climb past $80,000 by the year’s end. Teng attributed this optimism to institutional investors’ growing interest in Bitcoin, particularly through the influx of funds into new U.S. exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Similarly, Kris Marszalek, the co-founder and CEO of Crypto.com, viewed Bitcoin’s recent price drop as a positive development, characterizing it as a “healthy move” that alleviates excessive leverage. Marszalek emphasized the resilience of Bitcoin, citing its current volatility as relatively low compared to previous cycles. He anticipated a gradual increase in Bitcoin’s price, emphasizing its suitability as a long-term asset.

Conclusion 

While Bitcoin braces for potential turbulence in the pre-halving period, industry leaders maintain an optimistic outlook, underscoring Bitcoin’s resilience and long-term growth trajectory amidst evolving market dynamics.
