BREAKDOWN: LFG! Bitcoin Clears $66K and Hits New All-Time High

The market reacts to an exciting milestone. 

This episode is sponsored by NYDIG.

On today’s episode of “The Breakdown,” NLW looks at the market’s reaction to a new bitcoin all-time high, including:

  • The success of the first day of the ProShares bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund 
  • Why the ETF didn’t end up being a “buy the rumor, sell the news” event
  • Why the new ATH is all the more impressive given the recent FUD and actions by the Chinese government 
  • Why this ATH has some very different on-chain dynamics from previous ones 


NYDIG, the institutional-grade platform for bitcoin, is making it possible for thousands of banks who have trusted relationships with hundreds of millions of customers, to offer Bitcoin. Learn more at NYDIG.com/NLW.

Levine is our executive producer and our theme music is “Countdown” by Neon Beach. The music you heard today behind our sponsor is “Tidal Wave” by BRASKO.
