Bitcoin price has been accelerating massively in recent months, with Bitcoin (BTC) rallying from $10,000 to $41,500. This rally went vertical without any major corrections in between.

Bitcoin’s price started to fall south in the past days as it dropped 25% to $30,000. This dropdown was also influenced by the U.S. dollar’s sudden surge, which might be bottomed out in the short term.
