KUALA LUMPUR – Bitcoin had posted its largest gain in two weeks ago, due to China’s COVID-19 restriction relaxation that hyped investors’ interests for riskier assets.
According to a Bloomberg article, the cryptocurrency had climb to US$30,858.53 on May 30, amounting to approximately RM135,355.30 at current time. The news portal also mentioned that the amount was a 5.8% increase overall.
Other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and smaller tokens such as Avalanche were pummelled in the previous week even though Bitcoin kept relatively steady and started to climb.
The article reported that stocks had advanced in Asia and Europe following S&P 500’s rally on May 27.
Alpha Impact’s chief executive officer, Hayden Hughes, had said that the markets are long overdue for a relief rally.
“Bitcoin has experienced an 8-week streak in the red territory and got technically oversold to levels that were typically only seen at the bottom of bear markets,” said the head of the social media trading platform.
Cryptocurrencies had reestablished tendencies to trade in tandem with equities following a fall on May 27 even though the S&P 500 had capped weekly advance at 6.6%.
Bloomberg stated that the pattern has sparked concerns that investors would continue selling digital tokens even if there was a resurgence of demand for other risk assets.
Data from Monday, May 30, had also shown Ethereum gaining as much as 6.6% and while other cryptocurrencies like Avalanche and Solana rose by 9% and 6% each.
Bloomberg had also quoted CoinGecko and reported that the Luna token had declined by 1.2% and was marked as an outlier among alternative coins or altcoins. Luna is a token that was dispersed to investors who had the value of their cryptocurrencies tied to the Terra blockchain.
Hughes explained that Alpha Impact has observed investors heavily purchasing Ethereum and various altcoins
“These patterns are a mirror to what we saw in July 2021 bear market bottom and January 2020 local bottom,”
