“Today is Bitcoin futures settlement day, which contributed to the price spike we saw,” said Ryan Rasmussen, analyst at Bitwise Asset Management, quoted from CNBC International, Tuesday (27/2/2024).

“We are approaching the window where we usually see traders positioning themselves ahead of the Bitcoin halving, which will occur in the second half of April. I suspect this is the day that people start to enter bullish positions before the halving occurs,” he explained.

Most of the crypto market also got a boost from the rise in Bitcoin prices.

“Bitcoin has been hovering around USD 52,000 for the past two weeks and is looking for an opportunity to break out of it,” said Owen Lau, analyst at Oppenheimer, who cited positive exceptional developments in crypto regulation and increasing retail participation.
