Bitcoin & gold rally together

SVB recently faced trouble, and the Federal Reserve had to help with a bailout. Because of this, investors are looking for safe havens to protect their capital.

When more money is printed, as is the case during a bailout, people worry about inflation, since the money in their pocket becomes less valuable. Gold has been a popular hedge agiants inflation, but now Bitcoin is an option too.

The Fed claims it’s not printing more money, but its balance sheet tells a different story. ICYMI:

JPMorgan stated the FED might have to print $2 trillion to keep the banking system safe. With things so uncertain, Bitcoin could be a good choice for investors who want to protect their money.

Bitcoin: The financial saviour

Story time!

Once upon a time in the world of finance, the US Banking System teetered on the edge of collapse. Bitcoin, the hero of our story, was born on January 3, 2009, with a singular purpose: to rescue the financial system from itself.

On that fateful day, as the UK Chancellor announced the need for a second bank bailout, Bitcoin’s Genesis block emerged, carrying the same statement as a beacon of hope. The banking system had faltered since 2008, but with the help of the mighty “Infinite Fed Money Printer,” the day of reckoning was delayed. However, the more they printed, the less valuable those US Dollars became. And you know what else those devalued dollars could buy less of? Bitcoin.

The Fed may possess the power to conjure money out of thin air, but even it cannot defy the immutable law of supply and demand. As the supply of dollars swells, their value inevitably dwindles.

Whispers of an impending $2 trillion print by the Fed to salvage the banking system echo through the world of finance these days. To comprehend the sheer scale of this move, consider that in 2020, a $3 trillion injection ignited a spectacular crypto rally.

In that same year, billionaire fund manager Paul Tudor Jones publicly proclaimed Bitcoin as a hedge against inflation. Fast forward to 2023, and another financial titan has joined the chorus. Larry Fink, the chairman and CEO of BlackRock, a behemoth managing over $10 trillion in assets, declared: “At a time when the entire banking system seems to be melting down, Bitcoin has somehow emerged as a potential safe haven for investors.”

As the tale of Bitcoin unfolds, its mission to protect and preserve financial stability has never been more evident. And as the hero of our story continues its quest, retail crypto investors from far and wide may find solace and opportunity in its unwavering purpose.

$BTC price

After playing the waiting game, Bitcoin finally is hair length’s away from our $30,000 target. It took some serious foresight to believe in and bet on this outcome in January, but now everyone’s on board.

Just a heads up: as the price inches closer to resistance, short-term buying might not be the best move unless you’re in it for the long haul.

We’re feeling confident that $BTC will rally even higher, hitting $35,000 and $45,000. But before we go all-in, we need to see the price confidently break past $30,000.

Given the capital flow situation we’ve got going on right now (explained below), that might be a bit tricky. Keep your eyes peeled!

Balance on exchanges

Since March 11, a whopping 54,000 $BTC (worth over $1.5 billion) has been sent to exchanges. That’s a pretty big deal.

Usually, when a Bitcoin investor or miner moves their stash to an exchange, it’s to sell. So, as we approach that $30,000 milestone, we might see some serious selling pressure, making it tough to break through. The pullback will likely take price back to $25,500.

What could make the $30,000 resistance level crumble? A shift in the overall macro conditions might just do the trick.

In short: Brace for a pullback from $30,000.

But don’t stress – just because there’s some selling pressure, it doesn’t mean buyers are backing down.

The smart money

The >1,000 BTC whale club has opened its doors to 18 new members in the past week to the existing 2,005. While this is not a massive change, it still shows there’s some buying pressure out there.

As the Fed spills the beans on its next moves and the US banking drama continues, more investors will be on the lookout for a safe haven (unless something miraculous happens). And guess who’s a top contender? That’s right, $BTC! So, we’re definitely expecting to see more new whales joining the ranks of the “One Comma $BTC” club (that’s 1,000 BTC+).

BTC-Fi update

Bitcoin-Fi (Bitcoin DeFi) assets had a great week with three of them pulling a +50% performance!

While DeFi on Bitcoin is controversial in itself, it is bringing attention – which is all we need for $BTC to see further adoption.

Stacks, a Bitcoin Layer-2, is preparing for a new upgrade which we are fully covering in our upcoming DeFi Digest! Stay tuned!

Bitcoin Ordinals (NFTs)

Volume by Ordinals Marketplace (USD)

The Bitcoin NFT scene has chilled a bit since its early-March buzz, but it’s far from game over. Multiple projects such as DeGods and Solana Monkey Business are expanding by launching an Ordinals collection.

However, watch out for shady projects that have popped up to cash in on the hype. Their developers are likely just after a quick buck and might ghost once they’ve got it. So, stay alert!

While Ordinals are interesting and attractive, NFTs and Bitcoin don’t exactly go hand-in-hand. Still, a few collections might rise to legendary status, however – you have to do your homework before placing those bets. Good news, though: our NFT Digest is launching next week to keep you in the loop!

Cryptonary’s Take

In these unpredictable financial times, $BTC is stepping up as a potential safeguard of value, alongside classic hedges like gold.

We’re now just a hair’s breadth away from our $30,000 target, but expect some resistance as a few investors cash in their chips. Don’t sweat it, though – any pullback will likely be short-lived, taking us back to around $25,500 first before rallying to $35,000 and $45,000.

Now, if the financial system keeps crumbling and the Fed hits the brakes on rate hikes, Bitcoin could switch back to “Up Only” mode, smashing through new all-time highs. It’s a big “IF,” but definitely not off the table.

As always, thank you for reading 🙏
