This momentum was partly triggered by Elon Musk’s disclosure throughout the B-Word digital occasion held on July 21 that SpaceX aerospace producer had invested its treasury reserves in BTC and Tesla was prone to start accepting BTC fee once more.
As a outcome, Bitcoin’s worth has risen by $3K from lows of $29K to the present $32K stage.

“Bitcoin simply had a +$3k intraday transfer, however the futures markets stay quick. This will possible go down as a nice setup for a short-squeeze by the bulls, or as an necessary bear clampdown of a reduction rally. Either method, appears like we’ll be seeing some volatility over the subsequent week.”

BTC whales have been shopping for the worry
According to on-chain analyst Will Clemente:
“Whales have been shopping for the worry. They’ve now added +96,044 BTC to their holdings in the final 3 weeks.”
Fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) have engulfed the Bitcoin market ever since the main cryptocurrency plummeted from an all-time excessive (ATH) worth of $64.8k recorded in mid-April.
