Since breaking the $ 24,000 resistance, Bitcoin has broken new ground, with only spontaneous sales figures leading to fictions in what appears to be an increasingly parabolic market.
While institutional investors paused, conversations turned to retail buyers who fueled the final stage of the Bitcoin bull run.
“The bull cycle of the bull cycles has begun as more and more players prefer Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies,” said Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe, summarizing the Twitter followers.
Van de Poppe continued to look at $ 19,500 as a potential retracement zone, with altcoins queuing to take advantage of bitcoin once its own profits slow – possibly next month.
