Although Bitcoin's price dropped significantly from $ 20,000, it fell to very low points in 2019 and 2020. Taking advantage of these strong downward trends, investors made huge revenue as prices rose again.

Data show Bitcoin's resilience

In the early days of Bitcoin, high profile investors and financial institutions doubted the virtual currency's viability. While some companies have been cautiously optimistic about cryptocurrencies, the vast majority have kept their distance from next-generation assets.

Investor sentiment changed when Bitcoin price managed to bounce back from the $ 3,150 and $ 3,600 strong correction. Large institutional investors began to look more optimistic about Bitcoin.
