Bitcoin Takes Aim at $70,000 as Institutional Demand Skyrockets

11th April 2021

Institutions continue buying more Bitcoin, adding fuel to the bull market.
Key Takeaways
Bitcoin appears to have resumed its uptrend after a prolonged stagnation period.
Now, the only resistance level that separates BTC from new all-time highs is the $62,000 hurdle.
Breaking through this barrier would likely see prices rise to $70,000.
Following a month-long consolidation period, the buying pressure behind Bitcoin is finally being reflected on prices. The flagship cryptocurrency has broken through a crucial resistance level, threatening to rise toward $70,000.
Institutional Demand Skyrockets
According to Bloomberg, Tesla’s decision to allocate some of its wealth into BTC served as an “inflection point” that has encouraged many institutions to follow suit. The narrative around cryptos has shifted toward “the risks of missing out on the potential for Bitcoin becoming the global benchmark digital asset.” 
Demand for Bitcoin has risen to an all-time high given these chances. From China to the U.S., institutions are rushing to get a piece of the pioneer cryptocurrency. 
Over the past week alone, Chinese technology company Meitu scooped up roughly 175 BTC at an aggregate value of approximately $10 million, while business analytics firm MicroStrategy raked in roughly 253 BTC at an average price of $59,339. 
Along the same lines, Grayscale bought another $1 billion worth of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, bringing its total assets under management to $46.10 billion.
