As reported by U.Today, it suffered a price crash of enormous magnitude due to the coronavirus pandemic that resulted in the global economic shock.

The stellar quarter that wasn't 

In early 2020, Bitcoin was on track to have its best Q1 since 2013. In fact, it gained more than 50 percent after reaching its current yearly high of $10,508 on Feb. 13. However, this rally hit a snag and BTC printed its first negative February close in six years

All bull dreams have been brutally shattered after the 'Black Thursday' of May 12. On top of halving its price in less than one day, BTC was actually in great danger of hitting zero because of a string of liquidations on BitMEX.

The odds are in the bulls' favor  

That said, there is still a good chance that the bulls can stage an impressive comeback in Q2, which is historically the most successful quarter for the leading cryptocurrency.

Last year, BTC kicked off its impressive rally on Apr. 2 with a sudden 20 percent price pump.   

At press time, BTC is sitting at $6,480, continuing its streak of range-bound price action.
