Crypto News– The price of Bitcoin (BTC) stayed above the $69,000 threshold, reaching $70,054, despite the market witnessing the largest quarterly expiry of Bitcoin futures options.

We have experienced the largest option expiration in history, for Bybit and Deribit as well, people may roll over or unwind their hedging position during the expiration time, and the action of unwinding may have a small impact on the price movement in the very short term.

Rekt Capital stated in a March 26 video analysis that Bitcoin’s recent retracement before the halving aligns with historical patterns. The ongoing correction could conclude if Bitcoin manages to turn its previous all-time high of $69,000 into a support level.

Bitcoin is now peaking beyond this old all-time high, potentially positioning itself for this pre-halving retracement to be over.
