Liftoff: Bitcoin Down 22% From its All-Time High. Is This a Buying Opportunity?

Bitcoin is trading at $33,000 at the time of publi­ca­tion. This is down 22% from the recent all-time high of around $42,000. Should we be worried?

No, we should not be worried. In fact, it’s healthy to see pullbacks in a bull market. 

For some histor­ical context, Bitcoin rose from $1,000 to $20,000 in 2017, and during that run, we saw five ~30% pullbacks. Buying during those pullbacks turned out to be wise moves.

Swan customers have been buying this dip in earnest 💪

We’ve noticed that any time the Bitcoin price drops by 5 — 10%, existing Swan customers log into their dashboard and make on-time buys. In fact, our biggest volume days are when the price dips 🙂

As a reminder, our new “buy instantly” feature is avail­able for all Swan Customers. 

Swan customers aren’t the only ones buying this dip…

In fact, we’re seeing increased insti­tu­tional investors buying Bitcoin like never before.

A pseudonym is a ficti­tious name that a person or group assumes for a partic­ular purpose. Bitcoin’s creator used the pseudonym “Satoshi Nakamoto” to conceal their identity. There is a miscon­cep­tion that Bitcoin addresses are anony­mous, however in reality they’re pseudonymous.
