It has been a while since then, but the price of the main digital asset has gone up by 35%, which shows that it can withstand difficult geopolitical market conditions. As an example, many market speculators were curious to see how Bitcoin (BTC) would fare as a safe-haven asset. So far, BTC has been doing well for crypto supporters.

Will Clemente, a lead analyst, said March 28 that "Bitcoin is up 35% since Russia invaded Ukraine."

The crypto analyst also revealed:

“Bitcoin has closed above the short term holder cost basis for the first time since December 3rd. Hard to be bearish as long as BTC is above.”

It went as low as $33,727 on February 24, which was the day of the invasion. Then it started to come back up.

Analysts say that Bitcoin is showing a lot of different strength.

Bloomberg's senior commodities analyst Mike McGlone says that "Bitcoin is showing divergent strength" as a risk asset because the digital asset is doing well in contrast to weak equities. This is because the digital asset is dealing well with the effects of the ongoing war in Ukraine and the highest inflation rate in 40 years.

“Bitcoin Taking Risk-Off Baton? 1Q may be just another blip in the trend of rising risk assets amid the highest inflation in 40 years and war in Europe, yet our bias is that the 2022 endgame isn’t likely to be that easy. Bitcoin — is showing divergent strength.

Previously, McGlone said that 2022 could be a good year for people to get rid of their risk assets and for Bitcoin to reach a new level of maturity.

People are looking for places to keep their money and investments safe because of rising prices in the United States and rising costs for things like oil.

As reported by Finbold, Bitcoin's inflation rate has dropped to 1.7 percent as of March 10 and is now five times lower than the inflation rate of the United States dollar (USD). This makes the popular cryptocurrency a good way to fight inflation.

Another thing that might be happening with bitcoin is that it could become global digital collateral because its losses in 2002 were less than half of those of the Nasdaq 100 index.
