What investors look for Coinbases (NASDAQ:COIN) earnings report, expectations are subdued given recent US regulatory pressure to restrict access to banks for cryptocurrency operations.

Notes from the analyst: Cryptocurrency Analyst Michael van de Poppe mentioned corrections in Bitcoin are likely to remain relatively superficial. He predicts Bitcoin could reach $35,000 to $40,000 before a “hard correction” to $20,000 to $25,000 in the second half of 2023.

pseudonymous analyst Accompaniment believes the ETH/BTC ratio still looks like garbage. According to him, if Bitcoin moves past the $25,000 range and starts to accelerate upwards, it is likely that we will see a significant impact on altcoins compared to Bitcoin.

Analyzing the on-chain data, analyst Benjamin Cowen predicted that Bitcoin could stay within a certain range for most of 2023. The indicator Cowen used suggests that this range could theoretically extend to 2024 ahead of a sustained bull market rally.

“I would say what you’re probably going to see this year is a recovery year where you spend about half the time going up and half the time going down. You can break that down into different months, so you know that 2018, 2014, 2022, we had eight or nine red months, but in the recovery years it’s kind of split in half and half,” Cowen said.
“And I think you’re probably going to see the MVRV Z-score score do something like that, where it gets back above the zero line as it is right now, and eventually it probably goes back down. And we’re just spending some time on it consolidate.”
