Bitcoin’s rise fueled by optimism
Over the past couple of months, Bitcoin holders and market watchers have witnessed a decline in the price of the asset. However, a positive trend has emerged, allowing the price to regain the level it previously reached at the start of this year.
According to a recent post by Saniment, this bullish movement was driven by a surge of optimism. This led to what could be described as an optimism fueled pump.
Additionally, Santiment pointed out that this optimism could be attributed to the introduction of new cryptocurrency-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs). ETFs are investment funds that typically track an index or set of assets. In the case of cryptocurrency ETFs, they reflect the price movements of one or more digital tokens.
Additionally, the introduction of these new ETFs has sparked a noticeable increase in social discussion and conversation surrounding them. This increase in social volume coincided with the rise in value of BTC, further contributing to the overall optimism seen in the market.

Additionally, examination of the Relative Strength Index (RSI) line showed that Bitcoin was in a strong uptrend. The RSI broke above 70 at the time of writing, indicating a strong uptrend and the asset was overbought.

Additionally, around 259 trades, each worth more than $1 million, took place just two hours after the price broke above $30,000. At the time of this writing, the total number of whale transactions stood at approximately 138.
