The cofounder of Gold Bullion International, Dan Tapiero, has shared a chart on his Twitter page concerning Bitcoin volatility. It explains BTC's current moves up and down and is bullish for 2021.

"Phenomenal chart," "BTC volatility is near the lows"

Tapiero has shared a Bitcoin volatility chart, referring to it as "phenomenal." The Gold Bullion International cofounder says the chart suggests that the Bitcoin market is currently in the equivalent of the first quarter of 2017 in terms of volatility.

The investor warns that volatility usually spikes at the end of moves and, so far, it is near the lows. This implies that the strongest part of the Bitcoin surge is yet to begin.
