Matrixport analysts emphasize that the institutional side is now intertwined with physical demand. The supply and demand imbalance continues to drive BTC prices higher.

K33 experts also note in their report that Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have emerged as a significant topic, particularly concerning their potential to fuel the BTC price to surpass its previous all-time high (ATH) of nearly $70,000. Another growth driver will be the upcoming halving in the spring of 2024.
