ORDI spikes as Bitcoin hits $42k
ORDI’s massive price gains over the past few weeks have had a catalyst in the shape of Bitcoin’s rally. Over the weekend, BTC broke above the $40,000 level and like in the past several days, the upside reflected in the price of ORDI.
The token crossed the $24 hurdle on Saturday and after retesting the $33 area on December 3, extended higher to hit the all-time high of $44.03 early Monday. A look at the Bitcoin chart shows the benchmark cryptocurrency cross to its new year-do-date high price of $ 42,155 on Monday. Notably, BTC was traded at around $36,770 at the start of last week.
Analysts are bullish on Bitcoin going into next year, and with this outlook comes the possibility that ORDI could go on a vertical hike too. This forecast is informed largely by the increased pace of inscriptions within the Ordinals protocol.
ORDI makes up the largest share of these texts, images and such other features on Bitcoin, and as BTC rises, the BRC-20 token is likely to follow. This is the case with Bitcoin transactions fees rising, with data showing (in the above chart) that there have been over $46 million total inscriptions as of December 4, 2023.
While a retreat across the market could see ORDI’s price also decline, a return to the upward trajectory could well continue to track Bitcoin’s bullish outlook.
