On Tuesday, July 27, Bitcoin price tumbled $37,213.50 from $40,545 last Monday, which is its first peak in over six weeks of low. Yesterday’s price surge brought the cryptocurrency markets back to life after being stuck for months.
On the largest crypto exchange platform, Binance, BTC climbed as much as 30% in over an hour in New York trading.
An analyst said this is a sign of extreme volatility in one of Bitcoin’s most liquid derivatives.
Since mid-May, there has been little volatility in the world’s largest cryptocurrency since investors’ enthusiasm subsided amid the crackdowns and strict regulations in different countries. However, after its brief surpasses of the $40,000 level, BTC price again fell to its long week $30,000 level over $37,000 following Amazon’s denial of its Bitcoin payment support.
The rumor started earlier Monday when the eCommerce giant posted for a digital currency executive job position that will develop the firm’s digital currency and blockchain strategy. This stirred questions among analysts if the job posting could lead Amazon to accept Bitcoin payments soon.
Another analyst stated that the e-tailer’s denial has a similar effect to Paypal’s 2020 revelation that it will integrate cryptocurrency into its platform. He added that if the Amazon rumors turn out to be true shortly, it will be a catalyst in igniting a bull run in the second half of 2021.
Based on an analysis, there should be a caution against being overly bullish and suggests that some bearish threats are still valid. Also, it was found that the price rally last Monday seems to be associated with an overall short squeeze where the funding rates traded at negative levels despite the price rallying at +30%.
