Bitcoin reaches an all-time high above $71,000, demonstrating relentless momentum in the cryptocurrency market.

U.K. Financial Watchdog’s Crypto Trading Approval:

Britain’s financial regulator announces its authorization of recognized investment exchanges to launch crypto-backed exchange-traded notes, joining many regulators embracing digital asset trading products.

Bitcoin’s value surged 4.8% to reach $71,677 in European trading, marking a 70% gain for the year thus far.

Factors Driving Bitcoin Rally:

Increased investment in new spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds and expectations of potential Federal Reserve interest rate cuts contribute to Bitcoin’s upward trajectory.

The upcoming halving event in April, reducing the rate of new supply and miner rewards, is anticipated to further constrain Bitcoin’s availability, potentially supporting its price.

Regulatory Developments Impacting Market Sentiment:

The announcement that the London Stock Exchange plans to accept applications for Bitcoin and Ethereum exchange-traded notes in the second quarter may have bolstered confidence in the cryptocurrency market.

While the U.K. regulator permits crypto-backed exchange-traded notes for professional investors, it warns against potential risks to retail investors associated with such products.

Ether’s Rally and Regulatory Speculation:

Asset managers show significant bullish sentiment in bitcoin futures, reflecting increasing institutional interest in cryptocurrencies as a viable investment asset.

Ether, the second-largest cryptocurrency, climbed 2.1% to approach $4,000, driven by anticipation of potential approval by U.S. regulators for spot ether exchange-traded funds.
