This month Bitcoin has been stuck at $4k level but as the reds take it down, we might finally get to see the direction Bitcoin will go from here. As Mati Greenspan, senior analyst at eToro says in his “Crypto at a Crossroads” post, it all comes down to the “great” descending trendline of Bitcoin that has been looming over the market throughout the crypto winter that we have yet to break down.
Bitcoin is currently testing the major barrier, a strong move above which will mark the “definitive” end to the cold that the market has been anticipating in the form of sideways trading to the most of 2019 and hitting as low as $1,800. But a rejection here, Greenspan says could
“easily lead to another test of the lows at $3,000.”
While Bitcoin price is dropping, the number of nodes is at a rise going from 60k to 80k.

Meanwhile, altcoins are also in the red in tandem with Bitcoin as total market cap slides below $140 billion to $137 billion.
Majority of the market is flashing red as top cryptos slide between the range of 1 to 4 percent while in the last few days lower tier cryptos have been seeing
“parabolic gains on low liquidity.”
73 altcoins saw double digit gains today and 17 of them even saw more than 100℅. 🚀
I’m not holding any of them. 🤦♂️
