Bitcoin has been trading at around $6,300 for the past few days. The crypto asset is experiencing a significant resistance at that level to breakthrough and trade above $7,000 level, where it began in January.

Bitcoin Losing Value amid Coronavirus Fight
In the past few weeks, a lot of discussions have been revolving around the topic of whether Bitcoin stands as a store of value, especially at this time when the market is facing challenges. During an interview with Cointelegraph, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said:
“There are a lot of factors affecting the value of an asset, and it also varies during different times. We cannot say an asset is always a safe haven. Bitcoin’s price drop is not the result of a single factor.”
He continued to say that the crypto community and investors at large need to consider the overall crypto market and even the macroeconomic conditions. He cited that as the need to spend daily cash increases due to the lockdown, people are, in turn, changing their stored coins to fiat. As a result, the price and the demand have fallen in the short term, but the same people will come back and re-invest in the crypto space.
Chances to Hit All-Time High Soon Are Too Low
According to a post from Coindesk, Bitcoin stands a 4% chance to cross above $20,000 before the year ends. The data is derived from Skew, which is a crypto derivative analytics. In addition, the post deduced that Bitcoin’s probability to end the year above the $10k level stands at 16%.
However, the same post continued to cite that there are uncertainties in the market that may play well for the crypto bullish. Some of these factors include the money printing and lowering of interest rates by most countries. Besides, the halving is just days away, which historically has pushed the crypto market to the sky.
