Following a few days of price slides and choppy price action, bitcoin has bounced off from yesterday’s low and eyes $50,000 once again. The altcoins have also reacted positively, with Ethereum surging by 8% to nearly $1,600, as of writing these lines.
Bitcoin Has $50K In Sight (Once Again)
The BTC bulls didn’t seem to like the price action since Wednesday, when the situation seemed to be going in the cryptocurrency’s way as it reached as high as $52,500 just days after bottoming at $43K. However, the trend quickly reversed at that point, and the asset headed south.
In the following days, BTC dumped by over $7,000 to yesterday’s low at roughly $46,000. Nevertheless, the bulls regained control then and pushed the primary cryptocurrency north.
This drove bitcoin near the coveted $50,000 mark as the asset added more than $3,000 in a day. As of writing these lines, BTC has calmed slightly and currently stands around $49,000.
