Crypto Love: BGB Broke Its ATH On Valentine's Day

Crypto Love: BGB Broke Its ATH On Valentine's Day

2024-02-23 | 5m

While the broader markets heavily focus on the 'Bitcoin back to US$50K' narrative, we are excited to see BGB outperform the billion-market cap club with new ATH records - YES it's plural. Bitget's native token breached the US$1 mark within less than 50 days into the new year and only around two years after relaunch.

TL;DR: BGB is becoming the new crypto staple

Studying The Relationship Between BTC And BGB (Or Seeking An Explanation For BGB's Breakthrough Series)

Upon analysing the weekly and monthly performance of BGB, we have come to the conclusion that this token has the ability to withstand market difficulties and leverage any bullish signs to get back in the spotlight. It's time to take a closer look at this phenomenon in an attempt to find the answer.

Below is the correlation chart between BTC and BGB. You may ask why Bitcoin and not Ethereum (the mother of all ERC-20 tokens) or any other CEX tokens? At its lowest, Bitcoin dominance was still above 30% or one-third of the entire crypto market; that's not to mention Bitcoin's status as an asset is less often challenged than Ethereum and the gate to Wall Street is finally opened for Bitcoin with the recent spot BTC ETF launch.

The chart only shows the 7D and 90D rolling correlations between BTC and BGB's closing prices since the BGB upgrade (from good ol' BFT) in early 2022 for several reasons:

• The issue price of BFT and BGB are different because of the change in plans and benefits for holders;

• The BGB-BTC correlations for longer time frames (30D, 60D, and 90D) eventually converge, so we select the 7D and 90D correlation data to showcase the contrast between short-term and mid-term numbers as well as for the sake of visualisation;

• Long-term analysis is not available considering the 2022 timestamp.

The key point here is: BGB performance in mid-term follows that of BTC, but that's not necessarily the case for its weekly performance. It's important to note that correlation goes up as the examined period gets longer (30D correlation is higher than 7D, 60D is higher than 30D, and 90D is the highest), even though the 30D figure does not show as a clear positive relationship between the two cryptocurrencies as the 60D and 90D charts. The implications of these findings include:

(1) It's easy for new BGB investors to rake in some good returns regardless of their entry date as the token is likely to break away from Bitcoin's weekly ups and downs, thus creating numerous decent entry points on a regular basis. At the same time, a bounceback or breakthrough may happen very shortly afterwards, allowing for profit realisation within a short period of time.

(2) Holding BGB should be no less rewarding than holding BTC.

Despite tough times caused by 2022's black swan events, BGB was still able to make a new all-time high in October, which is almost 2.5 times that year's opening price. 2023 came with the bears hippity hopping around, but BGB made 11 new ATH records that year, with many new ATHs reached overnight. The highest ROI of this token since 2022 stands at 284% when it hit US$0.697451 on December 19, 2023; the yearly return (the year's closing price divided by the year's opening price) of 2023 is 219% compared to BTC's 155% and BNB's modest 27%.

Going into the new year 2024, BGB continued to record new all-time highs - it has officially crossed the US$1 mark recently. Do you see that somehow BGB always made its way back into the spotlight on Valentine's Day? Isn't it cool to spread the love for crypto with BGB and witness it turn into a wonderful present, either for yourself or for your beloved, right on the Day of Love? Anyway, the YTD return of BGB leaves Bitcoin and others in the CEX token category way behind, whereas its liquidity is roughly on the same levels as BTC and also outpaces other CEX tokens. Except for HTX, but that doesn't really count due to HTX performance.

Logically speaking, higher prices lead to higher demand, and consequently activities in the market (liquidity). We can observe the gradual increase in BGB's average volume as well as in the average volume-to-mcap ratio (a measure of liquidity ) every month. Better liquidity and more activities are signs of a healthier market, where any large order is less likely to affect prices in a significant way.

On The Sustainability Of BGB Growth: Bitget Is At The Forefront Of Crypto Adoption

Bitget celebrated its 5-year anniversary last year with even more devotion to the mainstream adoption of crypto. The core crypto values revolve around the idea of freedom, which should obviously be granted for every single individual. And so Bitget never stops striving for improvement in all aspects to lower the entry barrier for the novice and guarantee the best experience for all crypto users. BGB value is a direct result of Bitget's exponential growth, combined with its well-planned roadmap.

Bitget quickly rose to the occasion after the FTX fall, providing a secure platform for spot trading with nearly 700 coins that are constantly monitored and reviewed. Of course, as the leader of crypto copy trading platforms, we also do well in the derivatives category. Clearly, BGB market cap is still not on par with Bitget's competence, hence there's a lot more room for growth.

We have talked about the credibility of Bitget before: Crypto’s Epitome Of Credibility: Bitget | Trust Is What Brings People To Bitget . Let's just revisit the topic quickly: Bitget has successfully kept the reserve ratio at much higher levels than the industry's bare minimum of 100%, especially for growing-value assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
