How soon can BTC reach $60k?

Over the weekend, it traded around $51k-$52k, but the story changed on Monday morning. The bulls held strong and drove the price to $53k and then even further to test $57k on Tuesday.

However, on Wednesday, Feb 28, a new rally began, sending the price of the digital asset above the $59,000 mark for the first time since the bull run in November 2021.

The price increase occurred due to demand generated by spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs), which had cumulative trading volumes of over $3 billion on Tuesday. Some traders also attributed a pre-halving spike in bitcoin to the anticipated halving event in April.

According to Coinglass data, futures bets on lower bitcoin prices have taken on $25 million in liquidations since Asian morning hours, which could have contributed to the price rise.

With this steady increase in BTC value, investors eye the next milestone of $60k. If the positive sentiment continues and more money is pumped into the market, we might be reaching $60,000 shortly.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at $59,153 according to Coinstats data, representing a 4.37% increase over the last 24 hours. In addition, BTC has a 24-hour trading volume of $113,229,963,313 ($113 billion) and a live market cap of $1.16 billion.
