Quite a lot of action relatively speaking. End of the quarter usually causes some interesting moves.”BTC/USDT order book data.

I was wrong calling a local top at $75K in January because, first, BTC never reached $75K but reversed at $74,680, and second, it only got there in March. I was wrong then, and I’m wrong now predicting BTC at $95K,” he summarized.BitQuant nonetheless argued that “nothing has changed” fundamentally, and that at some point, Bitcoin would climb to target.BTC/USD chart.
