Trader Bitcoin Macro believes that a lot of newcomers in the cryptocurrency community don't realize the rate of increase Bitcoin can achieve, when it hits $ 20,000.
People underestimate how quickly Bitcoin will go from $ 20k to $ 50k and then $ 100k.
Most of the new people have never seen a full bull market. They have no idea how much Bitcoin will pump once it really gets going!

The uptrend of BTC continues
As expected, Bitcoin ended January with a high price, after rising more than 30% this month, indicating that the uptrend is likely to continue.
Trader Scott Melker quickly made a comment on Bitcoin's excellent performance in January, describing BTC's latest monthly candle as “great thing”. He explained that Bitcoin managed to rise sharply compared to the previous two candles while breaking two key resistance levels in just a month.
Epic monthly candle. Engulfing the two previous candles and breaking two key levels of resistance. The previous hammer is followed by this green candle as well. From this perspective, a bullish trend is confirmed. pic.twitter.com/DjclHR0jK6

“The BTC price has risen sharply and broke through two major resistance levels. The previous hammer pattern is also followed by this green candle. Therefore, the uptrend is confirmed. “
Melker seems certain that a new uptrend has been confirmed at this time. Meanwhile, analyst Big Cheds thinks that BTC may have formed a morning star candle pattern, often signaling a new uptrend.
The Bitcoin network is at risk due to the high level of concentration
One report only elucidates the risk that the Bitcoin network may face. A London-based blockchain analysis startup found that five mining pools in China controlled 49.9% of the network's total hashing power.
China's holding of a large percentage of Bitcoin's hashrate is nothing new. As of December 2019, it is responsible for 66% of the total hashrate, an increase of about 6% in just six months.
This is an alarming trend for those who strongly believe that Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency. However, the problem is even more serious – if these five pools merge into one, they can execute a 51% attack on the Bitcoin blockchain.
Bitcoin price could drop to $ 2,000 if the following Elliott wave analysis is correct
After months of price drops, BTC seems ready for another rally as the halving is about to take place.
However, there are traders who think that BTC will plummet despite its recent high price. Henrik Zeberg conducted an Elliot Wave analysis and suggested that the leading cryptocurrency could drop to as low as $ 2,000 before the $ 10,000 threshold was yet to be reached.
#Bitcoin Wave C in 5 waves should bring us down to ~ 2000 USD. Often trendline set by wave 2 through 4 – gives the bottom of wave 5 (through 3). I will eventually buy #Bitcoin – but not yet …… not yet … ..! pic.twitter.com/GDu7RB8Cx2

“Wave C of Bitcoin in the 5th phase will bring the price down to nearly 2000 USD. The trend line is usually set by waves 2 to 4, creating the bottom of wave 5. I will eventually buy Bitcoin but not now. ”
Bitcoin will have a strong year of growth
Bitcoin closed in January with a strong growth (more than 29%) from $ 7,150 at the beginning of the month to $ 9,250. This positive growth cycle seems to indicate the development of Bitcoin in 2020.
Investors survey global news, starting to retreat from their positions in the stock market. Corona viruses, political tensions and Brexit have all played a huge role in rocking stock market stability.
When investors leave stocks, they tend to look for safe-haven assets and Bitcoin is one of those asset types. Along with gold and other precious metals, Bitcoin offers investors a hedge against global economic instability.
With the stock market showing signs of weakness, it's no surprise that Bitcoin is showing strength and Bitcoin bulls will probably be active in the rest of 2020.
