Besides Institutional foray, reasons for the Bitcoin price momentum.

This Christmas has been fruitful primarily for the crypto and blockchain industry. The crypto bandwagon witnessed one of the greatest milestones of the largest digital virtual currency. This year gained immense attraction and appreciation from traditional financial institutions who actively pounced on the crypto meal. Institutions like Mass Mutual, Black Rock, Ruffer Investment, and PayPal are actively engaged in the crypto space.

However, Adam Back, Head of Blockstream, took to Twitter to express gist about the Bitcoin price momentum on a Christmas day. On December 25th, when Bitcoin almost hit the $25,000 highs, Adam Back expressed how the Bitcoin catalysts involved retail investors instead of institutional players. He further elucidated that the retail investors were the only keyboard players on Christmas day.

Nevertheless, the Bitcoin price momentum initiation was by the institutional investors investing substantial funds in hoarding Bitcoins. The other possible reason for the retail demand could be due to the FOMO of Bitcoin. Moreover, currently, the Bitcoin space constitutes three types of people. Firstly the ones who sold Bitcoin at $15,000. Secondly, the ones who are yet holding Bitcoin without a well-defined exit strategy, and thirdly, the ones who do not hold any Bitcoins. In either case, there are apprehensions about the future possibilities of Bitcoin.
