Bitcoin's ascent beyond $45,000 was not the most expected thing even a few days ago. But it certainly improves market sentiment. Here are three key reasons driving this bullish surge on the Bitcoin/USD chart:

Bitcoin's ETF effect

The recent positive flows on the Bitcoin market can be partly attributed to the ripple effects of the Bitcoin ETF. The selling pressure from Grayscale appears to be waning, while alternative ETF providers are constantly reporting significant inflows.

Growing Bitcoin layer-2 narrative

The narrative around Bitcoin's layer-2 (L2) solutions is gaining traction, reflecting a growing interest in Bitcoin's potential beyond its role as a store of value. With the advent of BitVM and other L2 projects, Bitcoin is poised to become more versatile, facilitating faster and trustless transactions. 

Venture Capital influx and developer momentum

Renewed interest from venture capitalists and the developer community have caused a seismic shift in the Bitcoin space. Projects that struggled to secure funding six months ago are now finding themselves oversubscribed. The influx of capital is a strong vote of confidence in the future of Bitcoin applications and L2 solutions, hinting at a resurgence of innovation within the Bitcoin ecosystem.

A deeper analysis of Bitcoin's price shows the asset consolidating strength above key support levels. The recent break above the $45,000 mark has served as a solid resistance-turned-support, indicating the market's bullish outlook. Moving forward, a sustained hold above this level could see Bitcoin testing the next resistance near $47,000. On the technical front, the convergence of moving averages and increased trading volume accompany this upswing, reinforcing the asset's upward momentum.
