Firstly, expectations of future interest rate cuts and the recent approval of Bitcoin-linked US exchange-traded funds (ETFs) were cited as major drivers of the ascent, according to Reuters. Then, renewed investor confidence and anticipation of Bitcoin's halving event for April also contributed to the rise, as Bitcoin Magazine reports. In parallel, a broader rally in US equities, mentioned by Sky News, also fuelled Bitcoin's positive momentum. Furthermore, this rise marks a continuation of volatility on the cryptocurrency motherboard and underlines Bitcoin's role as a store of value and inflation hedge in an uncertain economic environment.
