Analyst: ‘We Continue to See Companies Add Bitcoin to Their Balance Sheets’

During the start of the week, Etoro analyst Simon Peters said he believes it’s time for bitcoin to see some upside. “Bitcoin has consistently remained above $30,000 since breaking above on 2nd January 2021 and with this support level now established, in my opinion, it is now time to see some upside,†Peters wrote in a note sent to investors.

Additionally, the Etoro analyst discussed Marathon’s recent purchase of $150 million worth of bitcoin and said that this trend will continue. “We continue to see companies add bitcoin to their balance sheets, but the trickle has not yet developed into a snowball on a mass institutional scale. The fears of a falling dollar are very real, so what might drive more firms and CEOs to move some cash into bitcoin?†Peters added. Moreover, Microstrategy just announced it added more bitcoin to the company’s balance sheet.

Researchers Claim Ethereum Could Outperform Bitcoin This Year

Meanwhile, as eyes are focused on bitcoin (BTC), many analysts suspect ethereum (ETH) will outperform BTC. Dmitriy and Perdix from the organization Coinsheet give a number of reasons in Coinsheet’s report #263 to “why ETH will outperform BTC this year.â€

ETH/USD prices on February 3, 2021. Ethereum (ETH) jumped over the $1,600 range per coin on Wednesday.

The Coinsheet researchers mention Ethereum’s fees and cash flow, high turnover, decentralized exchange (dex) volumes, ETH’s hashrate, address activity, number of coins leaving exchanges, the amount of decentralized finance (defi) applications, and defi’s assets under management (AUM) aggregate. Coinsheet also mentions that CME Group is launching ETH-based futures on February 8, 2021.

The Verdict: Low Volatility and Tight Ranges Indicate Big Price Moves Ahead

Further analysts have been discussing the fact that bitcoin (BTC) volatility is dropping and many believe this will lead the way to more bullish prices. Many traders have leveraged BTC’s volatility levels to gauge the recent spikes in late 2020 and into 2021.

Whatever the case may be, traders expect a big price move in the near future which could go either way. BTC and cryptocurrencies, in general, have a reputation for being extremely volatile but in more recent days the leading crypto asset has traded in a tight range for the last 30 days.
