For instance, the impact of the bitcoin halving, unmistakably, during the rally at the end of april. This is also confirmed by the amount of search volume for bitcoin halving on Google. It is extremely a lot of searches on these search terms.
Furthermore, the fundamentals of bitcoin has also been improved, and these factors have been key catalysts that have contributed to the bullish sentiment.
