After rising over 44% this month so far —its highest since December 2020 — the intense intraday trade of Bitcoin (BTC) on Thursday has set in sight the biggest monthly gain in over three years. 

BTC, world's most-traded cryptocurrency, was observed stable at $61,100 morning in Asia, and exchanged for as high as $63,933 overnight. 

Being the biggest cryptocurrency in the world by market capitalisation, the perpetual ascent in its value indicates a "a test and likely break" of $69,000, which would take it far above its record high it registered at its prime in November 2021, said Tony Sycamore, an analyst at brokerage IG Markets.

Ether, to stand in line with the profit-making spell of the BTC, was recorded at $3,416 after undergoing a 50% hike in February only. 

"If this were any other market, it would likely be in the 'blow-off top - don't go near that bubble' category. But bitcoin is back in its parabolic-rally phase, with no immediate signs of a top," said Matt Simpson, senior market analyst at City Index. 

The consistently skyrocketing surge in the value of Bitcoin is likely driven by the approval of US-listed spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds in the US this year by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). 

Data released by the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG), a British financial markets infrastructure and data provider, inflow of $420 million was accumulated by the 10 largest spot Bitcoin ETFs on Tuesday alone, setting a two-week record.

Another factor which seems to have propelled this soaring trend is the impending halving event in April — taking place every 4 years to cut in half the rate at which tokens get released — which has beckoned the traders and setting the  Bitcoin on a voyage to demonstrate exceptional gains.
