In Transfero’s assessment, this may have been a sign that both the Russian government and citizens sought safety in the crypto market, showing that bitcoin can indeed be used as a store of value and protection against political/economic crises.

“The windows of opportunity for trading the asset in the short term are evidenced between prices of US$ 42.7 thousand and US$ 37.5 thousand. It is worth pointing out that this political/economic war scenario brings a lot of uncertainty to the market, so it is important to keep an eye on the main trading points explained in the chart above”, alerted Transfero’s Asset team.

In the last seven days, ending March 4, the Fear & Greed index has fallen some more, highlighting investors’ fear of war. However, according to analysts, the index change is somewhat “unstable” in a three-month period, which shows that overall the market is a bit unsettled.

“This sentiment, although it looks bad, is what can define the best buying opportunities”, Transfero pointed out.
