And with this, many have begun to call to an end of the bear market, in spite of the fears that lower lows are inbound.

BTC Moves Past $4,000, Watch The Breakout

Per data from Live Coin Watch, Bitcoin has moved past $4,000 for the first time in a number of weeks. As of the time of writing, BTC is up by 2%, as altcoins have surged across the board. While most established crypto assets, like Ethereum and XRP, have tracked the market leader almost to a tee, some lesser-known projects have seen double-digit percentage gains. Crypto.coms token has quintupled in the past 72 hours, while Bitcoin Cash has seen a +20% day.

Yet, all eyes are still on BTC, as this specific asset dictates the broader market movements. And interestingly, analysts are more bullish than bearish. Popular Twitter commentator Rhythm Trader, also known as Alec Ziupsnys, noted that the fact that BTC trading volume surmounted $11 billion has him glowing.

Referencing a tweet he made regarding catching Bitcoins bottom, he adds that traders shouldnt be caught picking up a penny in front of a steamroller.

Per previous reports, Rhythm Trader is under the belief that more likely than not, this market has found a bottom. Just days ago, he explained that while history does not repeat itself, it rhymes, setting precedent for Bitcoin to embark on a slow but steady grind past $20,000 by the start of 2021.

In a separate tweet, he notes that a short-term rebound to $6,000 is entirely possible, citing the fact that in his eyes, Novembers drop was the final bout of capitulation that wiped most negativity from the market. This, of course, could set a precedent for a return to mean, as Ziupsnys calls the expected recovery.

Alex Kr?ger, The Crypto Dog, and a mass of other prominent traders have also expressed positivity over the past week, accentuating improving underlying industry conditions.

Bitcoin Fundamentals Are Strong Too

Fundamentals seem to be strong too. Conner Fromknecht recently drew attention to the stellar growth in the Lightning Network, citing data from 1ML to show that the scaling solution can now process upwards of 1,000 BTC. Just months ago, this statistic was well under 500 BTC.

Institutional developments, save for CBOEs recent decision to shutter (or at least pause) its Bitcoin futures contract, have also created a bullish narrative. Bakkt is nearing launch, as Fidelity has soft-launched its cryptocurrency division to a crowd of selected clients. And it seems that there is a massive amount of demand for such products, as 20% of the 450 institutions that Fidelity assessed have got involved in cryptocurrency in some way, shape, or form.
