In just one of various achievements for Bitcoin this year, the largest cryptocurrency conquered bearish prognoses of a retraction after rising rapidly throughout the past 24 hours.

As Cointelegraph reported, Bitcoin’s NVT ratio led signals suggesting that the bull run was far from over, and likely only beginning.

According to Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe:

“Markets are doing great and the bull cycle is starting up nicely here. That means that the market will probably continue running heavily this coming year. With the standard 20-30% corrections, be prepared, they occur and they are opportunities.”
