There is a potential for a new Bitcoin price run as the U.S. dollar currency index (DXY) has dipped to a new low of 92.28.
Days after Tyler Winklevoss, co-founder of Gemini exchange said that the Federal Reserve under Chairman Jerome Powell is the biggest booster of Bitcoin’s (BTC) price, Andy Yee, senior director of public policy at Visa has made a new case capable of contributing to the long-predicted Bitcoin price’s bullish run.
These comments are as a function of the speech by Chairman Powell in which he maintained a stance on stirring inflations in a bid to get the economy back fully on its feet. In his tweet, Yee said:

As noted, the dip in the dollar currency index is good for safety assets such as Bitcoin and Gold. Bitcoin’s latest bull run coursing the price at $12,500 was stirred by the dip in the DYX and indications points to additional run this time.
While many still argue on the most viable asset that can help hedge against inflation between Bitcoin and Gold, the Founder and CEO of Real Vision Group and Global Macro Investor Raoul Pal said in his stating his belief that the price of both assets will rise in the future.

I think they both rise over time in inflation 1/
