There are no clear explanations why Bitcoin experienced this aggressive surge, but some reports is suggesting that it can be related to a new plan known as ‘building bridges.’ This project wants to inject new liquidity to bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market.

Mati Greenspan, a senior market analyst at Etoro, explained:

“The more liquidity we get into the market, the better it’s going to be. But the more important thing is that they’re ready to take on and to inject new liquidity into this market that at least should even things out and stabilize the price.”

It is important to mark that second quarters of the year tend to be better in terms of price for Bitcoin.

Besides that, the developing community is working in order to release the latest scaling solution for Bitcoin, known as the Lightning Network.

The latest spike in the price of bitcoin has been one of the highest in months. It will be important to follow how the price keeps evolving after moving almost 1,000 dollars in less than 20 minutes. Right now, bitcoin is operating stable at $7800 dollars.
