For the past week, the global atmosphere has been tense. With the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, the sanctions, the seemingly strange stories from Ukraine, and the crypto fundraising to help Ukrainians, there’s a lot to talk about.

One notable event was the fact that Bitcoin price plunged more than 12% to $34,459.22 on Thursday 24 — significantly below the high point of $39,122.39 that was recorded on Wednesday. In view of this, Some experts and analysts have claimed that Bitcoin is still a risky asset class and cannot be used as a hedge against market uncertainty.

Regardless, Bitcoin has shown resistance once again as it surpassed the $39k price to hit $40k with a $30 billion USD daily trading volume, as shown in the chart below;
