Ki Young Ju, CEO of South Korean on-chain analytics resource CryptoQuant, has predicted that $30,000 will be the starting point of another bull run.
Ju has pointed to the fact that most people are still underwater at current prices in response to a tweet about MicroStrategy's realized price being $30,664. The business intelligence firm recently announced that it had purchased another 480 coins.
As reported by U.Today, Ju predicted a "big short squeeze" last week ahead of Bitcoin's recent rally.
Earlier today, the largest cryptocurrency spiked to $23,855, the highest level since June 13. On Tuesday, Mark Newton, global head of technical strategy at Fundstrat Global Advisors, predicted that Bitcoin could potentially reclaim the $28,000 level before taking a breather.
The cryptocurrency is now up by nearly 37% since hitting the local bottom of $17,592 on June 18 during a massive sell-off.
Bitcoin has been vastly outperformed by Ethereum, with the ETH/BTC pair adding as much as 30% over the past week. The upcoming Merge event is widely viewed as a major bullish catalyst for the industry.
Still, the recent rally could falter due to macro headwinds, with the U.S. Federal Reserve being widely expected to announce a 100 basis point rate hike. This could be an ominous sign for crypto bulls emboldened by the recent recovery.
