From new analysis on Bitcoin’s push to hit $10,000 to ongoing adoption for Ethereum and Stellar, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
An analyst at the social trading platform eToro says Bitcoin is due for a substantial reversal.
Simon Peters says that in the long run, BTC now has a solid chance to surpass $10,000. But prior to reaching the next big milestone, Peters told CCN that he believes Bitcoin may suffer a hefty correction down to $6,500.
“Breaking $9,000 is another significant price moment for Bitcoin, but I’m still not sold on the idea that it’s up, up, up from here. We’re due for a significant correction still and prices could fall back to as low as $6,500 before the next major rise.
That said, you can’t ignore the continuing price surge we’ve seen this year, and $10k is now firmly in sight.”
Peters points to global economic uncertainty and Tether’s recent printing of $150 million in USDT as two potential catalysts for Bitcoin’s recent rise.
His outlook mirrors analysis by Nicholas Merten, aka Datadash, who speculates that Bitcoin’s previous market cycles indicate a current rise to $10,000 followed by a 40% drop in the price of BTC.
