    Market analysis

    André Franco, chief analyst at the Bitcoin Market, comments that we are in at least the third consecutive day in which the bitcoin starts the day in green and ends the day in red.

    “Even with very low volumes in the drops, BTC has dropped just over 5% in the last few days, but today the asset is rehearsing a recovery of almost 3%”, he says.

    Without much news on the horizon, for him it is natural that we will see even more laterality in prices and some reaction on the 10th, when the US inflation data comes out.

    “Until then, what is worth monitoring are the likely attacks within the ecosystem that can affect assets on a timely basis”, he concludes.
