The past two days since our previous BTC price analysis were probably the best days for Bitcoin during 2019: The coin is just unstoppable.
After breaking up the $7000, the $8000 target we mentioned in our recent weekly price analysis & overview, had reached very quickly. As of writing this, Bitcoin explodes above $8000.
Just a week ago the coin was trading around $5700. Less than two months ago, Bitcoin was trading under $3800. This is crazy, but, this is crypto.
So What can Stop Bitcoin’s current Bull-Run?
Any asset that surges too fast will have to correct and slow down. The longer there is no correction, the deeper the correction will likely be, when it takes place.
Earlier we mentioned that Binance is set to continue its deposits and withdrawals on Tuesday. This can definitely have an impact on the crypto markets. When Binance is out of the game, it’s easier to drive the price.
Besides, reasons like the dropping stock markets, Whole Foods adoption, Bakkt launch on July – are giving the cryptocurrency green light to continue surging.
Total Market Cap: $233 Billion
Bitcoin Market Cap: $140.7 Billion
