Bitcoin Hits Break Even for the First Time in 2022
Beginning 2022 on a downtrend, paired with the Fed withdrawing some of their previously applied stimulus measures while also increasing the interest rate, saw the price of Bitcoin drop from $47k down to $33k during the opening weeks of the year.
In March, Bitcoin slowly began accumulating gains, with its recent spike briefly seeing the crypto break even for the year as it recaptured the $47k price of the first day in 2022.

As Bitcoin broke past $47K, more than $410 million in positions held against the BTC were liquidated.
