Another potential reason why the cryptocurrency has been in favour recently is because the central bank is now closer to the end of its cycle that typically tends to draw interest into the risk-on assets.
Most importantly, the recent strength is a proof that crypto as an ecosystem has stood the test of time, as per Anastasia Amoroso – the Chief Investment Strategist at iCapital.

She also dubbed the recent regulatory crackdown a net positive for the crypto market in the long run on Thursday.
