The recent BTC price rally has been attributed to the weakening of the dollar index (DXY). The DXY recorded fluctuations in its metrics last night, which ended up bolstering the price of BTC. The DXY dropped to 110.846 from its earlier value of 112.072, which triggered a surge in Bitcoin's price.
DXY or Dollar Index, can be described as a barometer for global currencies that measures the value of the US dollar relative to a basket of global currencies.
Investors rejoice as Bitcoin breaks resistance
The recent Bitcoin price rally has gotten investors excited about the future prospects of Bitcoin.
According to analyst Crypto Rover, Bitcoin is pumping exactly the way it was predicted to.
According to CryptoQuant's CEO, Ki Young Ju, crypto miners' stance on Bitcoin has remained unchanged throughout the bear market, which may have played an incremental role in its recent price surge.
Ju tweeted how the hashrate to mining revenue has hit an all-time high, which demonstrates the fact that miners kept investing in infrastructure despite very small BTC rewards.
While the majority of investors are relishing in the recent BTC price rally, others were quick to note that nothing is set in stone and Bitcoin may soon alter its stance depending on the changing course of the crypto market.
