BitMEX co-founder predicts Bitcoin surge amid dollar liquidity rise

BitMEX co-founder Arthur Hayes is bullish on Bitcoin (BTC). Hayes shared his thoughts on X Alongside a chart depicting net reverse repurchase agreement (RRP) and treasury general account (TGA) balance changes, Hayes referred to United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen as “Bad Gurl Yellen.”

In the X post, Hayes encouraged fellow Bitcoin enthusiasts to stay focused, highlighting a significant uptick in U.S. dollar liquidity. He suggested BTC will likely mirror the rise in dollar liquidity, leading to an increase in its price.

The accompanying chart illustrates the net variations in RRP and TGA balances, indicating a possible link between heightened dollar liquidity and the BTC price.

Meanwhile, crypto analyst dharmafi shared more specific figures on X. The post emphasized an RRP of $65 billion and a TGA balance of $35 billion, with a significant net liquidity surge of $106 billion since Nov. 21.

As highlighted by Hayes, the rise in liquidity shows the changing dynamics in financial markets. Investors and Bitcoin enthusiasts observing liquidity injections can anticipate potential effects on the cryptocurrency market.

While the BitMEX co-founder highlighted the connection between dollar liquidity and the Bitcoin price, dharmafi’s data reinforces the impact of the liquidity surge. The $106 billion rise in net liquidity since Nov. 21 has raised questions about potential effects on diverse asset classes, including cryptocurrencies.
