New data has shown a sudden and unexpected shift within the crypto market, where the Bitcoin BTC price stopped its free fall and is currently rising once more. The number one currency is experiencing an 8.29% growth at the time of writing, with its current price nearing $4,400.

The new change has confirmed once again just how chaotic Bitcoin can be, and investors are still trying to find a source of this twist. Despite the fact that Bitcoin has had numerous ups and downs in 2018 alone, that it has gone through two serious market crashes, and almost an entire bearish year, it still remains the number one digital currency.

Bitcoin is continuing to dominate the market in terms of value, market cap, rank, age, and several other aspects. In the meantime, investors are asking another important question, which is — how far up can Bitcoin go?

Potential heights of Bitcoin

As stated previously, Bitcoin is the most unstable cryptocurrency around. It started this year with a price of $20,000 and nearing its end, it dropped to $3,700. While many have predicted that BTC will reach its old value of $20,000 or more by the end of the year, this seemed unlikely until today.

Investors and experts alike were now reminded that not a lot is certain when it comes to Bitcoin and that its price can be in free fall, and then shift to an unpredicted surge, all in one day. Considering that the year is nearing its end, and cryptocurrencies’ tendency to rise without any apparent reason in this time of year, it is currently unknown when this surge will stop.

It might be a short-term price correction that follows the selloff and BCH hash war, or it might be a start of a bull run that investors have been hoping for since January. Right now, it is believed that this is the first real price surge since July. Analysts have also stated that constant bouncing shows strong demand for the coin. However, in case it falls once more, the move down will be a very violent one.

However, if the coin manages to hold on to the current trend, there is no way to predict where it may end up. The only thing that is certain in this scenario is that it will step up.

Based on the coin’s history, analysts have set up numerous milestones that its value is expected to hit, whether it goes up or down. The price of $3,700, at which the coin stopped its free fall was one of those milestones. When the price is falling, these prices are expected to soften the fall and try to keep the coin from going any further. When the price is rising, these values are resistances that are to be broken. The latest resistance that BTC managed to break was at $4,150, and the coin exceeded it with ease.

Right now, it is closing the gap between its current price and $4,400, and after that — it is anyone’s guess. However, experts say that considering BTC’s activities in the last two weeks, breaking through these resistances will be a difficult task.

3 Cryptocurrencies Most Likely to Follow Bitcoin’s Performance

For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…

4 Reasons Why the New Bitcoin Rally Is Unlikely to Stop Now

After more than a year of declining prices, the crypto market is finally seeing a period of serious recovery — one that has already brought digital currencies to heights not seen in over half a year now.

Only days ago, Bitcoin surged past several major resistance levels and managed to exceed its yearly high of over $8,000. Already, many skeptics are predicting the soon end of the bull run, and the possibility of yet another sharp decline. However, there are signs that suggest otherwise — that this bull run is only getting started, and that it will not end anytime soon.

There are four reasons why this is the case, and they are as follows:

1) Bakkt

There is the long-awaited Bitcoin futures exchange, Bakkt, which recently announced that the July test date for Bitcoin futures is soon to be set. Bakkt’s launch was delayed multiple times already, so the announcement came as quite a surprise. However, it appears that it will happen quite soon, after all.

As soon as its arrival becomes a certainty, Bitcoin will likely skyrocket even further, just like gold did when gold ETF appeared in 2013.

2) Bitcoin completely ignored the hacking of Binance

Binance has been the largest crypto exchange by trading volume for a while now, and as such, many expected that, if anything were to happen to it, Bitcoin…

The crypto market’s recovery progresses further, and at a rapid pace, at that. Bitcoin has just surpassed the $8,000 mark, which is the first time its price has been that high since July of last year. In addition, the entire crypto market is making billions within hours.

Bitcoin (BTC) sees another serious surge

In the past 24 hours, the total crypto market cap has gone up by around $24 billion. Meanwhile, BTC price has grown by $1,000 within the same period, as the largest coin traded barely above $7,000 on early Monday. At the time of writing, the coin’s price sits at $8.014.31, with a 14% growth in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, the BTC market cap has gone up to $141.85 billion, and even the coin’s trading volume surged to over $31 billion.

While many are wondering whether this is a return to the massive heights seen back in 2017 or only a temporary surge which will soon see a correction — no signs of an upcoming decline have been noticed as of yet. In fact, new heights were made and then exceeded multiple times in the past week, with a massive 33% gain during that time. And, with Bitcoin’s dominance at 60%, many are expecting that massive altcoin surges are to be expected as well.

The growth of altcoins can already be seen, as Bitcoin
