Bitcoin (BTC) Explodes Past $68,000, Hitting another ATH

Bitcoin, the leading crypto by value, made another historic upswing on Tuesday, exploring levels of around $68,564 (Bitstamp data).

BTC extends its leg up today as the crypto space sees increased interest amid inflation fears. That had the crypto touching another ATH beyond $68,000. With that, Bitcoin stays 11.73% since November started following a 42.3% surge in October.  

The latest positive price movements saw BTC’s worth climbing towards $1.289 trillion as the crypto seems ready to surpass silver as far as market capitalization is concerned. Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 43.8%. Keep in mind that the leading crypto tagged $67,000, an ATH, on 20 October. That was when ProShares’s BITO ETF launched in the United States. However, the coin suffered a 15% retracement after that.

However, Bitcoin entered a recovery road, a somewhat usual thing in the crypto space. The latest increase follows a tease by Barry Silbert, Digital Currency Group executive. Silbert said that the crypto market would have a ‘big week. 

Meanwhile, Bitcoin gained more than 130% this year. The digital coin hovered at $11,500 one year ago. However, BTC’s value multiplied since 2020 end. For now, the crypto trades 8% high over the last seven days and sees massive volumes and inflows at its current price level, a sturdy fundamental gesture. November looks lucrative as bulls extend their October actions. 

If BTC closes beyond its previous high, market players can expect it to match towards $75,000. At the same time, most market participants stay bullish on BTC. ZebPay Trade Desk believes that the coming few days remain critical to crypto investors. 

Meanwhile, analysts still think Bitcoin is a speculative and volatile investment. BTC touched a record peak in April 2021 and plunged to $30,000 in about two months. With the correction and volatility history, the new BTC ATH hardly assures a long-term retracement. Crypto market investors seem used to price swings and know how to deal with the situation. 

Ethereum, the second-largest crypto after BTC, attained a new peak over the past day. That comes after the alt gained 1.82%, touching $4,729 (coinmarketcap data). ETH surpassed the $4,700 level, a historic surge resulting in an ATH. For now, WazirX analysts expect $4,340 to act as the nearest support as the resistance stands at $4,900. 

Bakkt, a digital asset marketplace, declared that its partners and users would start buying, selling, and holding ETH soon. That strengthened investors’ belief in crypto adoption. Meanwhile, the altcoin market reflected the positive price actions by the overall crypto space. BNB surged 1.15% to $649.27 as Solana hit $247.9 following a 2.65% rise in 24 hours. 

As top assets saw an upswing over the previous sessions, the global cryptocurrency market capitalization attained an all-time peak, crossing the $3 trillion mark. If the narrative persists, market participants can witness a bullish run soon. 

Ethereum’s rise to a record peak initiated the current cryptocurrency rally. Recently, JPMorgan predicted that Ethereum would attain a higher market cap level before the year’s end. Most tokens followed suit as Ethereum entered the upward momentum.
