Bitcoin price consolidates at £22.000: how is it going to develop from here?

Following the return of a substantial number of previously inactive bitcoins to the market, Bitcoin has managed to consolidate around £22.000 in recent days. How will it progress from here? Will it continue to rise or will it plummet again? What effects will this have on other cryptocurrencies?

One of the characteristics that has defined Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at times is the volatility of their value. However, in recent days, Bitcoin’s price has entered a period of relative stability, with its exchange rate versus the dollar lingering around £22,000. This comes after a period characterized by two things: first, a certain steady growth, and then the circulation of 50,000 previously inactive bitcoins. This, in theory, could have led to a potential price drop, but instead, we have observed this stabilization. As a result, many analysts are wondering what the next step will be for the market’s most prominent cryptocurrency.

The experts are paying attention to the following dates

For cryptocurrency experts, this period of stability needs to come to an end, and there are several events in the coming days that should put an end to it. Investors are closely watching the announcements from the United States Bureau of Economic Analysis, particularly the release of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures for the first quarter of the year. Positive results could help Bitcoin increase its price up to £24,000.

However, investors should not solely focus on the government’s GDP announcement. Another economic event to consider is the negotiation of the U.S. debt ceiling. Last week, these negotiations fell through, and if Democrats and Republicans fail to reach an agreement before June 1st, the country could default. Many investors have considered Bitcoin as a safe haven under such circumstances, so it will be critical to keep an eye on what happens. Bitcoin is currently trading about £22,300.

How can the stability of Bitcoin affect the price of other cryptocurrencies?

Being the most important cryptocurrency, investors are closely monitoring the evolution of Bitcoin. This is not only for investing in this crypto asset directly, but also for analysing the status of altcoins.

Ethereum is essentially the second most significant cryptocurrency in that regard. This cryptocurrency, not too long ago, is also in a period of relative stability, although there are already certain signs of a rebound, with a 2% increase at the time of writing this article. Given present trends, a rise in the price of Bitcoin might lead to an even greater rise in the price of Ethereum.

One cryptocurrency that is particularly sensitive to Bitcoin’s evolution is Ripple. This cryptocurrency has experienced significant struggles in recent months, failing to reach $0.469 in the past few days. This has caused it to decline slightly, but this decline could be exacerbated if Bitcoin fails to reach £24,000 again.  As a result, a Bitcoin surge could be one of the most important pieces of news for Ripple investors right now.

Consequently, Bitcoin’s condition might have a significant impact on the cryptocurrency market, not only because of direct investments in this crypto asset, but also because of its influence on others. For this reason, investors are closely monitoring economic events that could affect a market that has drifted towards steadiness in recent days.
