  • Van de Poppe identifies Bitcoin’s bullish trend, similar to past cycles.
  • Brandt calls 2024 halving and Bitcoin ETF approval potential non-events.
  • MicroStrategy’s proposed stock sale and Bitcoin purchase spur market uptick.

Cryptocurrency analyst and trader Michaël van de Poppe recently shared insights on Twitter about Bitcoin’s price patterns, indicating a strong current trend that resembles previous cycles. According to van de Poppe, the bottom for Bitcoin in this cycle is marked ten months before 2016, 2020, and the predicted 2024 halving. 

The strategist, famed for his ability to cut through the noise and provide analysis, also expressed expectations of a clean break through the $30K barrier, following a steady hold at $29.3K in the Low Time Frame (LTF). Van de Poppe’s observations underscored a steadfast optimism, despite some market analysts arguing for a possible retreat to $12K levels or a retest at the lows. 

He parallels 2019’s market situation, where some predicted a ‘must retest at $3K’ and a potential drop to $2K levels when Bitcoin was on an upward trend. He asserted that the present market scenario is similar, suggesting upward movement.

Meanwhile, another veteran trader, Peter Brandt, contradicted van de Poppe’s optimism by predicting that the much-anticipated 2024 Bitcoin halving and the potential approval of a Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) in the U.S. would be non-events. Brandt’s comments came as a counterpoint to optimistic projections from others who suggest these events could drive Bitcoin prices higher.

Despite the contrasting viewpoints, Bitcoin’s price experienced a significant uptick after MicroStrategy, a leading software developer and massive accumulator of Bitcoin, announced plans to purchase more of the cryptocurrency using the proceeds from a potential $750 million stock sale. This development, coupled with slowing inflation rates outpacing predictions, resulted in Bitcoin’s price rising to $29,522.45, marking a 2.34% increase within a 24-hour, according to CoinMarketCap data.

The discourse and analysis by both Van de Poppe and Brandt point towards a complex yet resilient crypto market. According to experts, the patterns noted and their interpretation could prove instrumental for traders and investors navigating the ever-evolving landscape of digital currencies.
