The crypto market has been on the bullish run lately from October, once again reflecting the “Uptober” sentiment in the market. Meanwhile, the market has been highly volatile throughout the year, due to a flurry of regulatory and macroeconomic concerns.
Despite the downturn momentum witnessed initially in the digital asset space in 2023, the market has bounced back, suggesting increasing confidence of the investors. Meanwhile, market watchers believe that the cryptocurrency market has noted significant gains over the past few weeks, mainly due to optimism over Bitcoin Spot ETF approval. According to several analysts, the approval could inject billions of dollars into the BTC market.
In addition, the recent economic data also showed that inflation is cooling, while the economy remains stable. Having said that, the Federal Reserve officials have also turned dovish with their rate hike plans, further bolstering the market participants’ confidence.
On the other hand, the market seems to be bullish with the upcoming Bitcoin halving date, which might push the market even higher. So, given the number of catalysts, the market seems to regaining its ground in recent days.
