Market Liquidity & True Believers Impact
Tim Frost from Yield App remarked that “after market tumult of 2022” sideways movement feels better than downward movement and noted that liquidity is not flowing into crypto either through new investments or withdrawals; only true believers and active traders remain participating at present.
Factors Determining BTC Price Direction
Growth in BTC and other correlated digital currencies will depend on factors that can attract new money – such as inflationary pressures or positive regulations – which could drive up prices further if they materialize favorably for crypto markets overall.
The current state of affairs remains uncertain when it comes to predicting where Bitcoin prices may go next; only time will tell if it surges ahead towards $30K or drops back below $25K first depending on how various external factors develop over coming weeks/months ahead.
