Bitcoin Price Controversy Ahead of Halving Event

Bitcoin has been in the news over the last few weeks, thanks to its recent resurgence.

Rania Gule, a market analyst at, recently shared her analysis of Bitcoin ahead of the Bitcoin halving.

Bitcoin Price Debate Intensifies Before Halving Milestone

Bitcoin recently hit a new all-time high before falling from that height. However, BTC has stabilized above the $65k mark. But, Gule, in her piece shared on Tuesday, March 5th, believes the cryptocurrency could crash even lower ahead of the halving.

Gule explained: “Historically, the price of Bitcoin decreased in the days leading up to the halving event. I anticipate a decline in the Bitcoin price to $45,000, possibly $42,000, or even $37,000, especially with the Federal Reserve maintaining high interest rates.”

Gule claims that economic situations could affect BTC’s performance. She believes that long-term high-interest rates are detrimental to the economy. Central banks deliberately maintain high-interest rates to restrict economic activities. While they achieve their goal of reducing inflation, this could potentially lead to a recession.

Countries like Japan and the UK are already in a recession. However, markets could see normalcy if other countries confirm recessions. So, Gule writes that a “correction in Bitcoin’s currency, possibly reaching $45,000 or $42,000, is likely fair.”

“I think this downturn is logical before the scheduled BTC halving event in April 2024, potentially resulting in a correction in BTC prices. Three previous Bitcoin halving events witnessed a significant price drop about 30 days before the event, followed by an increase in the original price in the months and weeks after the mining reward halving,” Gule adds. 


Gule concludes that a short-term drop is possible if history repeats itself. However, things might be different this time. The presence of Bitcoin ETFs could potentially change the halving narrative. Unlike previous halving events, institutional investors are going heavy on demand. And this can maintain the upward momentum. 

The continued upward movement is predominantly powered by institutional players, with retail traders staying cautious. This hasn’t happened in other halving cycles and might have a favorable effect on the pre-event pricing this time.
