Mathematical Mystery: Why Did The Bitcoin Rally Stop At The Golden Ratio?

Bitcoin is one of the most interesting and powerful pieces of mathematical code out there, launched as an open source project by the mysterious Math is one of those love it or hate it subjects in school, but no one can discount just how powerful it is when used effectively. It is by definition “the study of quantity, structure, space, and change.”

“Space” in this case, isn’t in reference to moonshots, but in the geometric shapes and patterns that appear on Bitcoin price charts, which “change” with each buy or sell order.

Math is integral to quantifying data in fundamental analysis, and measurements go into plotting the lines and averages of technical indicators.
