On April 13, analyst Benjamin Cowan reassured investors through a post on X, describing the drop as "normal" for the current market cycle, which has seen several corrections of 20-22%.

Echoing this sentiment, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor highlighted that chaotic market dynamics are actually beneficial for BTC.
