The cryptocurrency market experienced a sharp drop recently amid geopolitical tensions in the Middle East over the weekend. However, following a reduction in tension between the countries and the approval of spot Bitcoin and Ethereum exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in Hong Kong on April 15, Bitcoin managed a notable recovery, propelling its price above the U.S. $66,000.

Analyzing the current scenario, Peter Schiff, a gold supporter and Bitcoin skeptic, shared a prediction about the movement in the price of the largest cryptocurrency. In his analysis, Schiff emphasized that the $60,000 zone is a crucial support level for BTC.

According to Schiff, if the largest cryptocurrency on the market were to experience a decisive break below the highlighted level, it could establish a “triple top” pattern, potentially taking the price to a sharp drop to the $20,000 zone. He recalled that a drop of this degree would lead companies like MicroStrategy to very significant losses due to holding a huge amount of BTC tokens.

“$60K is critical support for Bitcoin. A decisive break below this level will create a formidable triple top. The immediate negative projection is a move to $20,000. At this price, $MSTR will have an unrealized loss of $2.7 billion on 214K Bitcoin purchased at an average price of $34K.”

At the time of publication, the price of Bitcoin was quoted at US$66,095.33, up 0.2% in the last 24 hours. During this period, the cryptocurrency recorded a trading volume of US$32,603,720,976. Over the past seven days, BTC has fallen 10.6%.
