Crypto Market Recap of Last Week

The first week of the month witnessed unusual fluctuations in Bitcoin. At the beginning of the week, Bitcoin experienced a sharp decline from $64,000 to $56,500, but it quickly recovered to $64,000 by the end of the week.

This volatility is attributed to ETF flows. Early in the week, ETFs sold off significantly, causing Bitcoin’s downturn. Towards the end of the week, large funds aggressively bought back, particularly MicroStrategy, leading to Bitcoin’s recovery to early-week levels.

Additionally, Bitcoin closed the monthly candle, ending a seven-month streak of continuous growth.
