ビットコイン (BTC) has the potential to push its prices to between $250,000 そして $350,000 の終わりまでに 2021, a long-standing fractal suggests.

First spotted by pseudonymous analyst Bit Harington, the bullish setup drew its inspirations from Bitcoin’s secular bull runs every time after halvings when the miner block reward gets cut in half. Analysts perceive the halving as a bullish event, which reduced the supply of newly mined BTC.

Harington reminded that Bitcoin’s prices surged by more than 600% after the first two halving events in 2012 そして 2016 when measured from a so-called resistance/support (R/S) ライン, 下のチャートに示すように.

The line represented a barrier during the period of price uptrend. Traders tested it for a breakout multiple times before successfully breaching it to log a new record high. When prices started correcting, they eventually bottomed out near the same line.

に 2020-2021, Bitcoin underwent a similar upside trajectory, bouncing from below $4,000 to rising to above $60,000. 再び, Harington highlighted the $60,000-level as the same R/S line that kept trades from logging a clear bullish breakout.

The analyst hinted that Bitcoin would break above it to soar towards a new record price level.

Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe reacted to Harington’s fractal theory, adding that it would lead the Bitcoin prices to the $250,000-$350,000 範囲.

彼は注意した, しかしながら, that the massive run-up could also prompt a brutal correction that can push Bitcoin prices back toward $65,000, right near the Harington’s S/R level of $60,000.
