Bitcoin Dip Before The Run

Last Week In Bitcoin is a series discussing the events of the previous week that occurred in the Bitcoin industry, covering all the important news and analysis.


After breaching $40,000 on Monday, it seemed a bull run was all but certain this week; however the fun didn’t last too long before bitcoin’s sudden surge from Sunday started to fizzle away. The week has been quiet news-wise, and besides the regular MicroStrategy and El Salvador coverage, there was very little else to persuade the market that it was time to get bullish. However, as we’ve seen over the last decade, there’s always room for being bullish.


Chart Of The Week

The chart above is based off of my previous piece analyzing bitcoin’s performance during each of the past 3 halving epochs. The blue dotted line represents bitcoin’s performance should it follow the exact trend of the last bitcoin halving epoch, whereas the orange line represents the actual performance of bitcoin since the last halving in May 2020.

Clear as daylight, it is evident that bitcoin is prime for a breakout in the coming months, should it follow the same trajectory. If bitcoin does in fact follow this path, it’s likely to peak somewhere around the middle of October — or perhaps November when Taproot activates — with a price of somewhere between $200,000 and $400,000 per bitcoin.
