As global geopolitical tensions rise, the cryptocurrency market, particularly Bitcoin, finds itself in a precarious position, facing a significant test of its resilience, which appears to challenge the widespread belief that 'chaos is good for Bitcoin.'

"The market was in easy mode, but right now clearly there's too much leverage and market makers are having a field day exploiting high emotions and degenerate behaviour. My strategy is to wait for the right moment and not to rush it. And if i am wrong? Well at least i have protected my capital and i can play catch up later." (@HoneybadgerC on X)
