Bitcoin has sustained a strong drop over the past few days as legacy markets have undergone a strong correction after a record rally. The leading cryptocurrency traded around $ 9,800 on Friday morning as bears sent the cryptocurrency lower.
This is a stark correction from the $ 12,000 local highs seen just days ago and the $ 12,500 seen in August.
Bitcoin remains bullish on a macro scale, though, as analysts note that the asset’s long-term chart and fundamentals remain skewed to appreciation.

Not the Only One That Thinks So
This trader isn’t the only one that thinks Bitcoin is still positioned to appreciate in the longer run. Raoul Pal, CEO of Real Vision, commented last week on comments from the Federal Reserve’s Jerome Powell on future inflation:
“Most people don’t understand the latter but is simply put, Powell has shown that there is ZERO tolerance for deflation so they will do ANYTHING to stop it, and that is good for the two hardest assets – Gold and Bitcoin. Powell WANTS inflation. I don’t think he gets true demand push inflation but he will get fiat devaluation, in conjunction with the other central banks all on the same mission.”
Others that have shared bullish long-term sentiments include Arthur Hayes of BitMEX, Mike Novogratz, and Pantera’s Dan Morehead.
