4 Solid Cryptocurrency Stocks to Buy for the Ongoing Market Rally

The cryptocurrency rally that started in 2023 has continued into this year, with Bitcoin (BTC) leading from the front. Bitcoin, the world's most popular cryptocurrency, hit an all-time high on Mar 14 after its price surged to $73,750. This saw Bitcoin's market capitalization surpassing $1.44 trillion.

However, Bitcoin has since declined 6.5%. The world's most popular cryptocurrency traded at $71,989 on Apr 8 after falling below $70,000. This has raised concerns among many, but the decline is temporary as Bitcoin has gained 70.6% year to date after jumping over 157% in 2023.

Also, the Bitcoin halving event is scheduled to take place in the third week of April. When this happens, the reward for mining new blocks is cut in half, making it harder for miners to earn Bitcoins overall. Historically, this event has caused a rise in scarcity and boosted the value of Bitcoin because of decreased supply.

Also, experts and research firms believe that this is just the beginning of the Bitcoin rally. Standard Chartered projects Bitcoin to hit $100,000 by the end of 2024, while Hedge fund SkyBridge forecasts Bitcoin to reach $170,000 by April 2025.
