"Bitcoin will remain volatile for the next few months, but the macroeconomic backdrop is what it was created for.This year should be and will be the year of BTC,"Novogratz said.

On Friday, March 13, the leading cryptocurrencycollapsed in sync with other markets after the WHO announced the COVID-19 pandemic. The S&amp;P 500 suffered its biggest daily drop since 1987. Bitcoin dropped below $4,000 for a while.
