There are also some optimistic indicators for Bitcoin

However, Bitcoin recorded an increase of 39.9% in October 2021, 28.04% in October 2020 and 10.48% in October 2019. Therefore, the performance of BTC in the bull markets of October is eye-catching. Accordingly, it has performed exceptionally well in the bull markets of the previous three years.

The leading crypto is up 1.89% over the past 7 days, at press time. In addition, it saw an increase of 1.43% on a daily basis. It is currently trading at $19,533. Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s market cap currently stands at $374.78 billion, according to data from CoinMarketCap. So it’s a long way from its over $1 trillion heyday.

However, the Bitcoin mining hashrate hit an all-time high of 240,208 million TH/s on October 2. This shows that miners are not very interested in the current bear market. Also, investors are abandoning fiat currencies such as the euro and pound en masse. Experts say investors are flocking to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum instead. This explains the three-month high in Bitcoin trading volume.

Finally As we reported, Robert Breedlove, the founder of crypto investment company Parallax Digital, said that the purchasing power of the dollar could drop to zero in the coming years. From this point of view, he claimed that thanks to the decrease in the purchasing power of the dollar, Bitcoin will exceed 12 million dollars by 2035.
