Bitcoin price has hit record highs since the start of 2021. Institutional support, surging demands and diminishing supply, and crypto-friendly regulations in different countries have been the reason for bitcoin’s increasing value. However, every increase in value is followed by corrections. It will be the case this time as well.

The increase in bitcoin price brings euphoria in crypto circles. Some seasoned investors are quick to put money in BTC but get disheartened as soon as downward really starts appearing on the chart.

Bitcoin is a volatile currency. It moves positions quickly but not every red candle is a sign of bear market. Furthermore, remember that bitcoin was at $3k in March 2020. It has reached $47K in less than a year. Therefore, a fall of $5-10K is nothing compared to the rise.

We should all take the advice of Binance’s CEO in this scenario:
