However, a paradigm shift unfolded in the past month, fueled by renewed optimism. The resurgence stems from mounting confidence that US regulators may greenlight the inaugural spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) – perhaps even before the end of 2023.
This newfound positivity propelled BTC beyond $37,000 last week, marking its first ascent above that threshold since April 2022.
Crucially, alongside this resurgence of optimism came a resurgence of liquidity, historically indicative of impending significant bull markets.
