The crypto industry’s meteoric rise in 2020 and 2021, fueled by low interest rates and heightened risk appetite, gave way to a series of setbacks in 2022. Major bankruptcies at crypto firms and disruptions in platform operations rattled investors, triggering a sharp decline in bitcoin’s price.

However, renewed confidence in crypto emerged over the past year, buoyed by regulatory approvals for exchange-traded funds tracking bitcoin’s spot price in the U.S. at the outset of 2024.

Bitcoin has steadily rebounded from its 2022 lows, reaching a fresh all-time high of $73,803.25 in March. Nevertheless, its price trajectory has since encountered challenges, grappling with directionality.
