The recent resurgence in the crypto world has brought along analysts’ comments, which seem to be increasingly exciting investors. One of the leading hosts in the crypto community, Tony Edward, recently made a statement sharing his thoughts on the possible direction of Bitcoin and altcoins.
Emphasis on Bitcoin Price Correction
Known for his expertise and affinity for cryptocurrencies, Tony Edward approached the recent price movements of Bitcoin with caution, contrary to analysts who are ablaze with bullish expectations.
Despite Bitcoin’s price having risen above $48,000 as of February 11, the notable figure still shared his cautious stance against potential downturn scenarios, inviting investors to behave similarly.
In a recent statement, he indicated that a correction to the $33,000 to $35,000 range could occur before a rise to Bitcoin’s all-time high (ATH). This price prediction was particularly striking as it came during a period of stagnation in the Bitcoin market over the last 24 hours.
However, despite his apprehensive demeanor, Edward highlighted an important point for investors and drew attention to altcoins. According to the famous figure, altcoins appear ready to benefit from any potential upward momentum Bitcoin might have and could rise to unexpected levels with Bitcoin’s surge.

Amidst Bitcoin’s price fluctuations, the past week reflected a positive outlook for cryptocurrencies. Additionally, data emerging from the futures market shed light on investor sentiment in the marketplace.

On the other hand, while there was a slight decline in Bitcoin OI at the CME Exchange, other platforms saw an increase. Binance, a prime example, witnessed a 2.06% increase in Bitcoin Futures OI, reaching a value of 113,590 BTC. Bybit also saw a 1.63% increase in the last 24 hours, rising to 76,460 BTC.
On another note, Bitcoin’s price found buyers at $48,110, a 0.21% decrease from the previous day. During this period, the value rose by 3.77%, reaching $19.68 billion.
The highest value seen for BTC in the last 24 hours was $48,796.38, while the lowest level was $47,830.70, once again demonstrating to investors how volatile the market can be.
