Bitcoin’s 80% Surge in 2023: A Positive Omen for its Future?

Bitcoin’s 80% Surge in 2023: A Positive Omen for its Future?

Bitcoin has surged past the $30,000 mark for the first time in 10 months, breaking from a tight three-week range.

This year, its worth has surged by over 80%, increasing from approximately $16,500 on January 1st to $30,100 as of 3 am ET.

Bitcoin’s fourth-best quarter on record was in the first quarter of this year, as reported by NYDIG, a financial services firm specializing in cryptocurrencies.

However, while a positive first quarter has historically been a good sign for Bitcoin, past performance does not guarantee future results.

NYDIG highlighted that Bitcoin has never had a negative year following a positive first quarter. Some of its most prosperous first quarters, such as in 2011 and 2013, have resulted in substantial full-year returns.

While Bitcoin has outperformed benchmark indices across equities and commodities this year, NYDIG cautions that extraordinary gains like those observed in 2011 and 2013 are improbable to repeat.
