From the path ahead for Bitcoin to a new platform for Ripple, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
A leading crypto analyst and economist is outlining Bitcoin’s next levels of support.
According to Alex Krüger, BTC is still in the danger zone, with a crucial line of support at $6,800. If Bitcoin dips below that level, Krüger says Bitcoin will have essentially retraced down to the technical start of 2019’s bull run, and will be in a “gigantic buying area”.
I see the 6800-6200 area as a gigantic buying area. I do not know if price will drop there. I know what I'll do if price drops there.

Meanwhile, a crypto analyst known as Galaxy told his 52,000 followers on Twitter that traders at large are now overly bearish on Bitcoin.
Galaxy says Bitcoin’s recent pullback is a temporary and necessary retracement, given BTC’s big move from around $3,700 at the start of the year to a high of just over $9,000.
Surprised on how bearish the sentiment is on this correction of a strong uptrend
People are actually waiting to short the bounce
Extremely risky play and the price could turn to the upside any moment, strong and fast, as it did before
This is a retracement not a reversal$BTC
