Bitcoin’s previous volatility

Bitcoin has always been characterized by volatility, whereas traditional financial markets are significantly more stable. The change in volatility, however, may be linked to Bitcoin’s fall from all-time highs, which has seen the commodity settle around $20,000 for weeks.

In this example, the level is seen as a temporary bottom for Bitcoin following an incredible bull run that concluded in an all-time high of about $68,000 in late 2021.

At the same time, Bitcoin’s lower volatility has evolved as a result of a strong dollar, which has caused global fiat currencies to lose value in comparison to the US currency. In this regard, the rising dollar, together with falling commodity prices, may have a negative influence on stock portfolios.

Bitcoin, on the other hand, has remained stable, with investors in some locations resorting to the asset as a hedge against increasing costs.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin is consolidating below $20,000 as bears and bulls battle for dominance. By press time, the asset was trading for $19,500, down less than 1% in the previous 24 hours.
