While Bitcoin price may be struggling to reclaim recent highs, according to one prominent market researcher, all of the first-ever cryptocurrency’s fundamentals are screaming “buy,” just ahead of the asset’s halving.

Finally, along with price action, the Bitcoin Cost of Production indicator is showing that price is now on par with the cost to produce each BTC, which suggests that the price would need to double soon to prevent miners from operating at a loss.
