Drivers of New Bitcoin Millionaires

The surge in prices and the creation of new Bitcoin millionaires can be attributed to the crypto market putting behind the bearish conditions of 2022 characterized by high inflation and the fallout from incidents such as the FTX collapse.

Bitcoin managed to maintain the gains triggered by the lower inflation rate in the United States. In this case, the Federal Reserve is likely to ease its aggressive monetary policy since the war on inflation is likely to be won, and in return, risky assets such as Bitcoin stand out to benefit.

Notably, maintaining the number of Bitcoin millionaires remains a challenge given that the general market still faces uncertainty. Bitcoin is still in volatile conditions that have partly spread since last year.

Along this line, several technical indicators offer mixed signals as to the future of the asset. For example, as reported by Finbold, Bitcoin faces the dreaded first-ever week death cross training. The pattern has long been associated with the downtrend.

On the other hand, there is a possibility of Bitcoin undergoing the Gold Cross pattern, which could signal sustained gains for the young crypto. In particular, the golden cross that forms when the 50 days moving average (MA) crosses above the 200-day MA has long been associated with the uptrend.
