According to crypto analyst Michaël van de Poppe, Bitcoin could potentially rise by 50% during the first year of its bull cycle. He explains that after a one-year bear market and accumulation period, Bitcoin is entering the first year of the bull cycle, with a potential high of $50,000 to $55,000. The analyst also predicts that altcoins will start to rally before Bitcoin reaches its all-time high. He believes that the confirmation of the bear market being over is almost certain, especially with Bitcoin breaking the $28,000 mark and holding the 200-week exponential moving average. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $36,689.
