The cryptocurrency rallied a few days back, but now, it has moved closer to 38.2% Fib level. Investors are enthusiastic that as it remains at this level for some time, and stabilize. The next move in Bitcoin price will take it to the 61.8% Fib level. This is when the hike in the price of the cryptocurrency will occur towards $4,200. However, after the surge in price, the upcoming weeks will see the Bitcoin falling swiftly to $3,000.
The truth is that if this move fails to occur, there may not be an improvement in the value of the digital currency. Also, this movement will enable the “bullish gartly pattern” we saw on the BTC/USD 4H chart to become a reality. Also, we are expecting that the Bitcoin price will decline the same way it has been recovering since early February.
Why this week’s closing price matters
Presently, Bitcoin price is still trading above what the intrinsic value is showing on larger time frames. However, we can see adequate room to accommodate short-term rallies. The price at which Bitcoin closes this week is very critical. It will be a clear indication as to how the digital currency will move in the coming weeks.
If Bitcoin closes at a price above $4,000, we are hopeful that the correction may come from early next week. On the other hand, any price of around $3,800 might delay the correction until two weeks ahead. Right now, it is very clear that BTC/USD is still not stable yet. Meanwhile, before investors of the digital currency can start investing aggressively again, the price has to be above $6,000. However, if the price falls below what it is currently, investors will turn bearish.
There may be disagreements as to whether the cryptocurrency has hit its lowest level. One thing is clear. Currently, there is a higher possibility that the price might decline more instead of rising. That said, we don’t believe that the time is ripe for shorting the digital currency yet. From what we saw on the BTCUSDShorts chart, the total margined shorts is still holding on strong.
Future outlook of Bitcoin
Investors are expecting BTCUSDShorts to move towards the trend line resistance very soon. If the rejection is strong as expected, then BTC/USD will recover faster in the short term. When this occurs, the Bitcoin price will surge above $4,000. Bear in mind that if BTCUSDShorts break supports at 17,347, there may be a swift decline of sell pressure. This reduction in sell orders may cause the price to hike towards $6000.
The long-term move for Bitcoin, we are not sure that BTCUSDShorts will break support, but there is still a possibility. One thing that may happen is that BTCUSDShorts will face rejection as it tests the trend line resistance. When this happens, the result may lead to a fall back to its support line and also restarts the process. Finally, investors might start selling off their Bitcoin in panic thereby leading to huge drop very soon.

Stanford Lecturer praises XRP over Bitcoin
The world of cryptocurrencies continues to cause controversies even now, particularly when it comes to matters such as the superiority of one coin over others. According to recent reports, one student from Stanford University has stated that one of Stanford’s guest lecturers — Dr. Susan Athey — bashed the first and largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, while praising XRP.
Does guest lecturer go anti-Bitcoin?
In late February, Stanford’s student called Conner Brown came out publicly with a claim that Athey described Bitcoin’s network and protocol inaccurately, and that she also used the opportunity to make unfounded criticism. Athey, who also sits on Board of Directors at Ripple Labs — XRP’s parent company — supposedly also stated that XRP provides solutions to all issues mentioned in regards to Bitcoin.
According to Brown’s comments on the matter, the lecture in question took place over a month ago, and after attending it, he wrote an open letter to Standford, explaining the incident. In the letter, Brown claims that Athey inaccurately presented Bitcoin’s consensus protocol and overstated several issues, such as the threat of a 51% attack on the coins network, as well as Bitcoin’s mining centralization.
However, the main problem with the lecture, as Brown sees it, is the professor’s claims that XRP presents a solution to these problems.
The claims caused Dr. Athey to respond publicly via Twitter, stating…
Bitcoin Chasing Green — First Positive Month Since July In Sight
The crypto market has started seeing gains in mid-February, with Bitcoin (BTC) following the bullish trend as well. In fact, the largest coin was on its way of seeing the first positive month since July of the last year. Even though its price was struggling to permanently overcome the major resistance at $4,000, the coin kept trying, and as long as its price doesn’t drop below $3,414, this goal can still be achieved
The return of the bearish trend which briefly overtook the market on February 24th caused a lot of damage, although Bitcoin managed to remain above $3,800. Following the crash, BTC started seeing minor gains once again, indicating that the bears have withdrawn for now.
What does the future hold for BTC?
As mentioned, Bitcoin can only complete a positive month if its price remains above $3,500 until the end of February. At the time of writing, the price sits at $3,807 according to TradingView, with an increase of 0.58% in the last 24 hours. As things are right now, it is likely that BTC might succeed in doing this, as its price performed relatively well ever since January 11th, even though it remained between $3,300 and $3,700.
The recently-emerging bullish trend took it beyond this, and while the price…
Earning BTC through Bitcoin Faucets: Is it Worth it?
Back in the day, when cryptocurrencies only started to emerge, there was not a lot of different ways to buy Bitcoin. However, as years went on, and the development progressed, a lot more options for obtaining different coins emerged. Of course, cryptocurrencies are still far away from mass adoption that the community is hoping to see. Even so, their popularity is rising rapidly, which eventually led to a phenomenon known as Bitcoin faucets.
Simply put, Bitcoin faucets are websites that pay people tiny amounts of Bitcoin in exchange for watching videos, clicking links, and doing similar activities that require no particular skills or knowledge.
These amounts are not really measured in BTC, but rather in Satoshis, which are 100 millionth of 1 BTC. This means that 1 BTC equals 100,000,000 Satoshis, and the amount a person gets per click is usually only around one Satoshi. At this point, you would need 25,000 satoshi’s to have $1, which is not exactly profitable. You would need to earn one satoshi per second for as long as three years to earn a single Bitcoin, which is currently less than $4,000. In other words, if you worked 24 hours per day, clicking on one link per second, you would still end the day with only $3.65 in your wallet.
Furthermore, a lot of these offers are scams which promise larger rewards and…
