Bitcoin price rose yesterday as optimism returned into the market. The price crossed the important level of $7,000 before making a slight pullback.

There was no specific reason why Bitcoin why the price rose. Some believe that the price rose after the Fed published its balance sheet, which showed that it was printing billions of dollars every week as Roy Sebag pointed it in Twitter:

Other traders talked about halving, which will happen between May and June. Halving is the process in which the amount of Bitcoin that is handed to miners is cut into half. As I wrote recently, history suggests that the price of Bitcoin has risen before having happens. The previous two halvings happened in 2012 and 2016.

Another likely reason is that many investors believe that the price of Bitcoin, which dropped to below $3,300 in March has already bottomed.
