(BTC) sold off along with the U.S. equity markets on Feb. 17 on reports that Russia expelled Bart Gorman, the second highest-ranking American official from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and U.S. President Joe Biden cautioned that the threat of a Ukrainian invasion by Russia remains “very high.”
Although the near-term correlation between Bitcoin and the U.S. equity markets remains high, Pantera Capital CEO Dan Morehead said in a recent newsletter that the “markets will decouple soon.” Morehead mentioned that the U.S. Federal Reserve’s rate hikes will be negative for bonds, stocks and real estate and cryptocurrencies may be the “best place” to park capital.
