Bitcoin, Ether, Binance Coin and Polkadot will see a bullish sun shining over them in the next 24 hours and week, indicating further upside potential, ATTMO shows.

Cryptocurrencies fall back on profit taking after strong monthly gains

The cryptocurrency trend was negative over the past 24 hours, with both Bitcoin and Ether falling back on profit taking. The two largest cryptocurrencies have both risen around 30 percent over the past month, amongst others supported by the launch of nine spot Bitcoin exchange traded funds (ETFs) five weeks ago.

On Wednesday, the total net outflow of Bitcoin spot ETF was $35.66 million, the first single-day net outflow after 17 trading days of net inflows, data from BitMEX Research shows. This net outflow amounts to 694 Bitcoins.

Another factor that has been supporting the crypto market is Bitcoin’s upcoming halving in April. “Usually, there's a short-term peak before the halving, resulting in the standard 20-40% correction before the continuation of the market,” the founder and CEO of MN Trading, Michaël van de Poppe said. A pre-halving peak between $54,000 and $58,000K followed by a harsh correction ranging between $45,000 and $48,000 is likely, he added.

The Head of Research at 10x Research, Markus Thielen, expects Bitcoin to decline to its nearest support level at $47,500 or as low as $45,000.

The price of Bitcoin dropped 1.4 percent to $51,066 over the past 24 hours.

ECB officers assess Bitcoin’s fair value as nonexistent

The fair value of Bitcoin remains zero despite the approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the US, two European Central Bank (ECB) officers wrote on the bank’s blog. Bitcoin is not suitable as an investment as the asset does not generate cash flow, nor dividends, nor can it be used productively nor does it offer social benefits, they added.

“For disciples, the formal approval confirms that Bitcoin investments are safe, and the preceding rally is proof of an unstoppable triumph. We disagree with both claims and reiterate that the fair value of Bitcoin is still zero,” said the Director General of the ECB’s Market & Infrastructure unit, Ulrich Bindseil, and an advisor to this unit, Jürgen Schaaf.

Bitcoin’s current market capitalization, roughly 1 trillion, “quantifies the overall social damage that will occur when the house of cards collapses,” they warned.
