Analyst: “Bull run of bull runs has started”

Such as Cointelegraph reported Earlier in the day, Bitcoin set a number of records with its latest moves, including passing a market cap of $ 500 billion for the first time.

In addition, Monday should see the biggest hole in the Bitcoin futures markets ever.

Since overcoming the $ 24,000 resistance, Bitcoin has traded in uncharted territory with only impromptu sales levels creating fiction in what appears to be an increasingly parabolic market.

While institutional investors took a break, talks turned to retail buyers fueling the final stages of the Bitcoin bull run.

“The bull cycle of bull cycles has begun as more and more players begin to transition to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies,” said Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe summarized to Twitter followers.

Van de Poppe continued to keep an eye on $ 19,500 as a potential retracement zone, with altcoins lining up to take advantage of Bitcoin’s example once his own gains are slow – possibly next month.
