Crypto community sets Bitcoin (BTC) price for January 31, 2023

As one of the most challenging years for the cryptocurrency sector is about to end, crypto traders and investors are analyzing the movements of Bitcoin (BTC) to try and project the price action of the flagship decentralized finance (DeFi) token in the near future.

With this in mind, the cryptocurrency community over at CoinMarketCap is bullish on the price of Bitcoin for the end of the opening month of 2023, predicting it would be changing hands at an average price of $19,640.54 on January 31, 2023, as per data retrieved on December 29.

If the community’s projections, which are the result of 15,233 member votes cast by press time, prove correct, the predicted price would represent a +18.09% or +$3,008.75 increase compared to the price of the flagship digital asset at the time of publication.
