Two Major Factors to Drive the Value of Bitcoin (BTC) This Year
In an interview with Bloomberg, Thomas Lee talked about the recent price trend of Bitcoin (BTC) and two key factors that would cause the value of the digital currency to skyrocket before the end of this year. Lee also said that the $6k level for Bitcoin (BTC) is a very important level, and the stability of the digital currency is a sign of imminent reversal.
According to Thomas Lee, the two major factors that would pioneer the next Bitcoin (BTC) price rally before the end of this year are:
- Strengthening the infrastructure of the digital currency trading platform market
- FOMO (fear of missing out) amongst institutional investors.
In the meantime, a catalyst that could begin this rally would be decided today. The U.S Securities and Exchange Commission scheduled today September 30 to make their final ruling on a Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund proposal by CBOE. Chances are the SEC will approve the Bitcoin (BTC) ETF, if this happens, then the digital currency might start the trend it started last year that saw it hit its all-time high.
