From a Bitcoin prediction gone viral to a brush with fate for Ripple and Ethereum, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
A theory on how Bitcoin will plot a course back to its all-time high is going viral on Twitter.
The prediction, posted by a crypto trader who goes by the name B.Biddles, uses a popular stock trading indicator called a bump-and-run reversal (BARR), which highlights an accumulation phase followed by a bump to the downside and then a surge toward previous highs.

According to an analysis of the theory from CCN, the BARR points to a potential Bitcoin breakout to $6,800.
Meanwhile, Murad Mahmudov of Adaptive Capital predicts the bear market is not over yet. On Trading View, Mahmudov plotted an incoming BTC rally to about $5,700, where Bitcoin traded for months in mid-2018. After that, Mahmudov believes Bitcoin could then crash to $4,800.
Mahmudov became well-known in the crypto community for outlining his “ultimate Bitcoin argument” on Anthony Pompliano’s Off the Chain podcast. In January, he said Bitcoin may not have found its bottom yet and could still fall as low as $1,700.
Ethereum, Ripple and XRP
A simple twist of fate prevented Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin from joining Ripple’s early efforts to create cross-border payment solutions and boost the XRP ecosystem.
On Twitter, Buterin revealed that he applied for an internship at Ripple back in 2013, but was denied a visa because Ripple had only been around for nine months instead of a year, which is the minimum requirement.
