At long last, the crypto asset market has started to get back on its feet after 2018's harrowing decline. Technical indicators are seemingly falling in place for a recovery, and fundamentals have begun to present a positive precedent for Bitcoin (BTC).
In fact, one analyst writes that there is currently a "perfect storm" being brewed for the leading cryptocurrency at the moment, citing the rise in certain macroeconomic trends that could be for BTC.

Macro Catalysts Could Boost Bitcoin  Brendan Bernstein, the founding partner of Tetras Capital, an industry investment firm whose partners seem skeptical of Ethereum, recently laid out why he believes BTC's long-term prospects are healthy
Like Travis Kling, Bernstein, a proponent of the " Bitcoin, not blockchain raison d'etre, dictated to the Federal Reserve's propensity to list quantitative easing (QE) strategies. While QE, which is a fiscal policy that sees central banks purchase assets to boost the economy, has arguably been a positive catalyst for cryptocurrencies for the better part of a decade, some of which the economy might get dicey.
Anti-establishment figures, presumably like Bernstein, wary that with the overutilization of QE, the economy could be put in a bad place, potentially giving BTC a chance to rally as a non-correlated store of value.

With one of Bitcoin's most-touted characteristics being the deflationary issuance schedule, the rapid inflation of prominent government-issued currencies would likely give cryptocurrencies an opportunity to rally and eat up the global monetary pie.

Alistair Milne, the chief investment officer of and industry fund, recently took to Twitter to write that "pretty much every bit bit bit trader" that he respects is leaning bullish.
