20 hours ago

Bitcoin had a quite positive trading week in which it gained over six grand and skyrocketed to its highest price tag in almost a month of over $67,000.
Most altcoins also followed suit, with SOL, AVAX, BCH, LINK, and many others registering double-digit gains.
BTC Calms at $67K
Bitcoin had retraced to just over $60,000 last Friday, but the bulls managed to defend that psychological support level during the weekend. Moreover, the asset started to climb on Monday and jumped to just over $63,000. It failed there and retraced to $61,200 on Tuesday, ahead of the US CPI announcement for April, but shot up once those numbers came out.
More precisely, the cryptocurrency gained several grand and skyrocketed to over $66,500 for the first time since mid-April. Another brief

21 hours ago

By examining the processing speed of the largest blockchain networks in terms of total value locked on DeFiLlama, CoinGecko outlined the fastest based on the actual and realized transactions-per-speed (TPS) metric.
The report concluded that Solana leads the way, followed by Sui and the Binance Smart Chain. Interestingly, Ethereum and Bitcoin are not even in the top 15.
Solana’s World

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Taps $67K, Ethereum (ETH) Climbs Above $3.1K (Weekend Watch)

2 days ago

Bitcoin’s most recent run continued in the past 24 hours as the asset’s price climbed to its highest price in over a month at just over $67,400 yesterday.
Ethereum has also joined the party at last, having surged past the coveted resistance line of $3,000 and jumping above $3,100.
BTC Sees 5-Week Peak
Bitcoin suffered a lot at the start of May as it dumped to a multi-month low of under $57,000. It began to recover some ground in the following week when it soared past $65,000 on May 6 but quickly reversed its trajectory and saw its price dropping to under $61,000 on May 10.
The bulls intercepted the move at this point and didn’t allow any further declines. Just the opposite, BTC maintained its ground last weekend and started climbing on Monday to just over $63,000. Another

BTC Records Best Week Since March Amid US CPI Announcement and Big Names Buying Bitcoin ETFs: This Week’s Crypto Recap

3 days ago

A lot can change in the cryptocurrency market within the span of a week and it indeed did in the past seven days. It was just last Friday when bitcoin was struggling to remain above $60,000 after another leg down, but the landscape is quite different now.
The changes started to happen during the weekend when BTC remained above the aforementioned level and even increased slightly to around $61,000. However, the first big move came on Monday when the cryptocurrency pumped to just over $63,000.
It failed to sustain that rally and retraced hard on Tuesday amid some Coinbase issues and perhaps due to pressure from the upcoming US CPI announcement on Wednesday. Once that came out, though, and the reality met expectations, bitcoin started climbing rapidly.
It jumped by several

BTC Price Settles at $63K as Network Difficulty Declines, Binance’s Regulatory Issues Continue: This Week’s Crypto Recap

10 days ago

Bitcoin’s price saw a lot of volatility last week, especially before and after the US Fed’s most recent FOMC meeting, but managed to recover some ground during the current one. Let’s unpack.
The primary cryptocurrency had dropped to a multi-month low of $56,500 last Wednesday, went on a volatile rollercoaster as the US central bank said it would not raise the interest rates, and began its recovery on Friday.
At the time, BTC soared from under $59,000 to $62,000 in minutes and kept climbing during the weekend. As such, it touched $64,000 on a couple of occasions but failed to overcome that level by Sunday. However, it did so on Monday and soared to $65,500 to tap a 12-day high.
Nevertheless, the bears were still lurking around and didn’t allow any further gains. Just the

Bitcoin Maintains $63K, Dogecoin’s Rise Continues With Another 6% Surge (Weekend Watch)

15 days ago

Bitcoin’s price recovery tour took it to a multi-day peak of $64,500 yesterday, but the asset failed to continue upward and has retraced by over a grand since then.
Most larger-cal alts are slightly in the red on a daily scale, with TON, ADA, and SHIB declining by 2-4%.
BTC Stopped at $64.5K
The start of May was quite painful for the bitcoin bulls as the cryptocurrency slumped hard after failing to pump above $65,000 a day earlier. The massive correction drove the asset to its lowest price tag in over two months of $56,500.
The Fed’s refusal to raise the interest rates any further brought more volatility, as BTC pumped and dumped by $2,000 in minutes on Wednesday afternoon. Only then started the gradual price recovery as bitcoin jumped to $59,000 by Friday.

BTC Nosedives to 2-Month Low, ETH Loses $3K Level as Liquidations Skyrocket to $400M

19 days ago

The trading day continues in an even more painful manner for bitcoin as the primary cryptocurrency took another hit and slumped to its lowest price position in over two months of under $59,300.
The altcoins’ situation is worse, with ETH dropping below $3,000, SOL dumping by 8%, and a few double-digit price declines.
Bitcoin/Price/Chart. Source: TradingViewIt was just earlier today when the bitcoin bulls had taken charge and initiated an impressive leg up that resulted in the asset nearing $65,000 for the first time in a few days.
However, it failed to breach that level, and the subsequent rejection led to dire consequences. Amid the disappointing debut of the spot Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs in Hong Kong, the largest cryptocurrency fell by a couple of grand during the day

Feeling Bearish? Here Are Three Bullish Developments for Bitcoin’s Future

21 days ago

Bitcoin’s fourth halving is already in the history books, and the block rewards have been reduced to 3.125 BTC. Although historically the event has been named the catalyst of a new bull cycle, there’s a lot of controversy now, with many claiming that the effects of this halving are declining.
Aside from that, though, there are many other bullish developments on the Bitcoin front that might get you excited in the coming months.

If you’re still feeling bearish, you need to know this:…

ETF Developments
Perhaps the most bullish news this year came in mid-January when the US Securities and Exchange Commission finally greenlighted nearly a dozen spot Bitcoin ETFs to start trading on local exchanges. In a matter of just a few months,

Ethereum (ETH) Soars Above $3.3K, Bitcoin (BTC) Aims for $64K (Weekend Watch)

22 days ago

Bitcoin’s price actions were quite bearish for the past few days once again as the asset fell to $62,300 yesterday but managed to regain almost two grand since then.
The altcoins have also turned green today, with ETH jumping above $3,300 and SOL reclaiming the $140 level.
BTC Challenges $64K
It was just over a week ago when BTC went through its fourth halving, slashing the block rewards by half for the miners. At the time, the asset’s price had experienced tons of volatility amid the escalating tension between Iran and Israel.
After a massive drop to under $59,500, the cryptocurrency jumped by more than five grand and went above $65,000 last weekend. It kept climbing in the first few days of the business week and spiked above $67,000 on a couple of occasions.

Altcoins Crash Once More as Bitcoin (BTC) Slips to $63K (Weekend Watch)

23 days ago

Bitcoin’s price recovery attempts from the business week have come to a halt as the asset slumped to $62,400 earlier before bouncing off to around $63,000 as of now.
The altcoins are in no better shape, with most of the market turning red today. The total crypto market cap is down by $150 billion in two days.
BTC Dumps to $63K
Bitcoin’s price actions before and after the fourth halving, which was completed last Friday, have been quite underwhelming. The asset recovered some ground after the Iran-Israel attacks and stood above $65,000 when the block rewards were reduced.
It even started climbing in the following days and challenged $67,000 on a few occasions. Yet, it didn’t see much success there amid the growing ETF outflows.
Just the opposite, BTC started to lose value

Why Are These Four Meme Coins Up by Double Digits in the Past Day?

29 days ago

Meme coins have been at the forefront of the 2024 bull run, with many surging by double-triple-quadruple digits in the past few months. However, that trend changed in mid-March when the crypto market’s run was halted, and many retraced hard.
Another change seems to be on the horizon, this time in a more positive manner, as the four best-performing assets from the top 100 alts today are coming from the meme coin realm.

CryptoPotato reported earlier that Bitcoin had tapped $65,000, while many larger-cap alts have jumped by about 6-7%.
However, Shiba Inu has emerged as the top performer from the larger-cap alts, having soared by more than 18% in a day. This meant that the second-largest meme coin has climbed to the 12th place in terms of market cap with a price tag of over

Shiba Inu (SHIB) Explodes 18% Daily, Bitcoin (BTC) Taps $65K (Weekend Watch)

29 days ago

Bitcoin’s price recovery continues following the recent massacres, and the cryptocurrency has jumped to about $65,000 as of now.
The altcoins are even more in the green now, with ETH and BNB surging by approximately 4%, while SHIB has stolen the show.
Bitcoin Aims at $65K
It’s safe to say that the week leading to the fourth Bitcoin halving was quite painful. The asset fell from over $70,000 to $65,000 last Friday before it dumped to $61,000 a day later.
After regaining some traction by Monday, BTC went for another freefall in the middle of the week and one more on Friday amid the escalating tension between Iran and Israel. The last massive drop took BTC to below $60,000 just hours before the highly-anticipated halving was supposed to take place.
However, the cryptocurrency

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Remains Stable at $64K on Halving Day (Weekend Watch)

April 20, 2024

Bitcoin’s price faced extreme volatility in the days leading to the highly-anticipated fourth halving but has remained relatively still after its completion.
Most altcoins are slightly in the green on a daily scale, aside from TON, which has dumped by double-digits despite the big news coming from Tether.
BTC’s Calmness After Halving
The adverse price developments for Bitcoin started last Friday when the asset slumped from over $71,000 to $65,000. It recovered a couple of grand on the next day but further dumped to $61,000 hours later amid growing conflict between Israel and Iran.
After another unsuccessful rebound attempt on Monday, the cryptocurrency started losing value during the business week as well. Israel’s attack against Iran from earlier this week brought another

Was BTC’s $10K Weekend Crash the Last Correction Before the Next Bitcoin Halving?

April 14, 2024

The cryptocurrency market saw a massive correction in the past two days, starting with a red Friday and followed by a Saturday massacre.
While the reasons are still debated, even though they seem to be external and not related to the industry itself, the fact is that the total market cap shed over $400 billion at one point.
With the next Bitcoin halving, an event typically regarded as a catalyst for future price increases, just around the corner, the question arises whether this was the last substantial correction before the block production is reduced by another 50%.
Was This Correction Normal?
As reported during the weekend, Bitcoin’s price first tumbled from $71,000 to $65,000 before another leg down drove it south to a multi-week low of around $61,000. The first

Crypto Markets Lost Over $400B as Bitcoin (BTC) Slumped by $10K in 2 Days (Weekend Watch)

April 14, 2024

In yet another eventful and painful evening trading on Saturday, Bitcoin’s price tumbled by another five grand to a multi-week low of around $61,000.
The alternative coins were hit even harder, with numerous double-digit price declines. The main culprit for this crash was the rising tension between Iran and Israel.
BTC’s Rollercoaster Continues
It was just 48 hours ago when BTC’s price hovered calmly above $70,000, and it even challenged $71,000, but to no avail. Yet, the landscape changed for the worse on Friday evening after speeches from high-ranking officials representing the US central bank that said the Fed has no plans to start lowering interest rates anytime soon.
In a matter of minutes, the primary cryptocurrency’s price slumped by five to six grand and dropped to

Peter Schiff Takes a Dig at Bitcoin as BTC Price Tumbles Amid Rising Iran-Israel Tension

April 13, 2024

While the past several weekends went quite calmly for Bitcoin and the entire crypto market, this time, things are significantly different.
Whether propelled by yesterday’s announcements by a few presidents of the US Federal Reserve or today’s reports of Iran preparing an attack against Israel, the reality is that BTC’s price has tumbled hard, and the altcoins have shed even more value.
This seems like the perfect opportunity for a perma-bear like Peter Schiff to open up another can of bash fest. But, keep in mind that gold’s price also dropped yesterday, when the markets were opened.

Bitcoin just flash crashed to just above $61K. That’s just 26 ounces of gold. At its peak 2.5 years ago one #Bitcoin was worth 37 ounces of #gold. That’s a decline of 30%. Digital Fool’s Gold

Another $700 Million in Liquidations as Bitcoin (BTC) Dumps to $61K, Altcoins Bleed Out

April 13, 2024

The cryptocurrency markets plummeted on Friday evening, and the same violent scenario was repeated once again on Saturday.
The entire market has bled out, with another $200 billion leaving the space. The total liquidations have skyrocketed to $700 million after the $900 million last night.
BTCUSD. Source: TradingViewIt was all going well for the primary cryptocurrency until Friday evening, as the asset had calmed at around $70,000-$71,000. However, the situation changed following the latest US Fed speeches that didn’t hint at any significant changes in the central bank’s monetary policy in terms of interest rate reduction.
In a matter of minutes, BTC slumped by five to six grand, dumped to $65,000, and left approximately $900 million in liquidations from almost 300,000

These Crypto Assets Dumped the Most as the Total Market Cap Shed Over $200B (Weekend Watch)

April 13, 2024

Bitcoin’s price took a massive turn to the worse yesterday with a decline that pushed it south by about five grand in hours.
The altcoins’ losses were even more significant, which is evident by the rising BTC dominance. Many meme coins dumped by over 20%.
BTC’s Crash
The business week was actually going relatively well for the primary cryptocurrency. The asset had a strong start on Monday when it pumped to a four-week peak of over $72,500 amid the growing demand for the spot ETFs.
It failed to maintain its run and retraced to $67,500 on Wednesday after the US announced the March inflation data, which was actually higher than expected. Nevertheless, the cryptocurrency recovered some ground in the next few days and even challenged $71,000 on Friday.
However, it didn’t see

Meme Coin Massacre: WIF, BONK, PEPE, FLOKI, SHIB, and DOGE Plummet by Double Digits

April 12, 2024

The total crypto market saw a massive correction on Friday evening, with more than $200 billion leaving the space within hours.
The liquidations have shot up to nearly $1 billion on a daily scale, but some of the most notable losers come from the ever-volatile meme coin niche.

CryptoPotato already reported the big Bitcoin retracement that took the primary cryptocurrency from around $71,000 earlier today to a weekly low of $65,000 within minutes.
However, that’s just a part of the story as the altcoins and meme coins, in particular, have experienced even more pain within the past day.

BONK leads this adverse trend with a massive 25% drop that has pushed the popular Solana-based token to under $0.000017.
WIF follows suit with a similar decline that has further driven

This Is What We Can Expect After the 2024 Bitcoin Halving According to Historical Patterns

April 7, 2024

With just a few weeks left until the completion of the fourth halving in BTC’s history, crypto analysts, experts, and commentators rush to offer their views on what can and might transpire in the following months.
History shows that Bitcoin’s price has reacted quite positively during the cycle that starts with the halving, which is to be expected, given its effect on the network – after all, the production of new BTC is slashed in half, and if the demand for the asset remains the same or increases, the price should go up as well.

Ever wondered what #Bitcoin did on the halving day?
In 2012, BTC moved sideways on the halving day and then pumped from $12 to $1166 after the halving. That’s a 9500% increase in just 380 days.
In 2016, BTC also moved sideways on the halving day

Is This Bitcoin Halving Strategy Indeed the Most Profitable?

April 6, 2024

Upon designing what has later become the world’s largest blockchain network, Satoshi Nakamoto decided to incorporate an event happening approximately every four years to set a certain inflation rate for the creation of new BTC.
The so-called halving slashes in half the rewards miners receive for their work on the network, which, in theory, should mean an increasing price for the underlying asset if the demand remains the same or increases.
With BTC’s next halving right around the corner, one analyst has outlined a particularly simple but possibly quite profitable strategy for those who want to speculate on Bitcoin’s price movements in regard to each cycle.

History shows that Bitcoin’s price indeed heads north in the months after each halving. Whether that’s hype or people

The latest bull market in the cryptocurrency industry seems to be underway, given that BTC has already charted a new all-time high, and the total market capitalization is close to its highest figure.
Moreover, the fourth halving is anticipated to take place in about two weeks, and history shows that the event tends to serve as a catalyst for future price increases not only for BTC but for many assets as well.

Bitcoin (BTC) Challenges $68K, Dogecoin (DOGE) Soars 5% Daily (Weekend Watch)

April 6, 2024

Bitcoin had a controversial week in terms of price movements, as it slumped to a ten-day low and jumped by nearly five grand a day later but failed to sustain its momentum.
The altcoins also suffered on a weekly basis, but most have turned green after yesterday’s retracements.
BTC Goes After $68K
The volatile week began on Monday after BTC failed to overcome $71,000 on Sunday, which resulted in a price drop of two grand. After it bounced off to $70,000 once more on Tuesday, the bears initiated another leg down, which resulted in a more violent price drop to $66,000.
They kept the pressure piling in the following hours and pushed Bitcoin to a ten-day low of around $64,500. This came amid reports that the US government had transferred 2,000 BTC to Coinbase. The stash was

SEC Gains Court Victory Against Terraform Labs and Do Kwon: Report

April 6, 2024

Although the US has yet to win the extradition victory against South Korea for Do Kwon, a New York court has already ruled against the fallen former crypto mogul in a legal case launched by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Do Kwon and his crypto brainchild – Terraform Labs – were found guilty of misleading investors in the 2022 crash.
The Terra collapse from two years ago was among the loudest in the cryptocurrency industry, which resulted in an investor loss of around $40 billion. This unfolded when unknown actors found a way to explore the project’s algorithmic stablecoin UST, and the other native token – LUNA.
Kwon, the founder and majority owner of Terraform Labs, went on the run but was finally captured in Montenegro last year when trying to escape the country

BTC Faces Enhanced Volatility as US Govt Sells Silk Road-Related Bitcoin, BCH Completes 2nd Halving: This Week’s Crypto Recap

April 5, 2024

This week was quite a volatile rollercoaster for the primary cryptocurrency and the rest of the market, perhaps driven by actions undertaken by the US government.
Recall that BTC’s price had stalled at around $69,000 last Friday as the bulls had failed to overcome the $70,000 level. Following a relatively quiet weekend, in which BTC stayed at around the same levels, it went on the offensive once again on Monday to over $71,000.
However, Bitcoin failed to overcome that resistance line decisively. The subsequent rejections, especially the last one yesterday, drove it south hard. In a matter of hours, the cryptocurrency dumped to under $65,000 to chart a ten-day low.
This came amid reports that the US government had moved 2,000 BTC, which it had confiscated from Silk Road to

These Are The Top 5 Bitcoin-Interested Countries According to Google

March 30, 2024

It has been over 15 years since Satoshi Nakamoto introduced Bitcoin to the world, and a lot has happened within this timeframe. From being called a pyramid scheme, rat poison (sq), and proclaimed dead hundreds of times, to becoming a trillion-dollar asset with a dozen exchange-traded funds tracking its performance on the world’s largest financial market.
Its adoption curve, which has recently been linked to that of the Internet from 1997, has seen some deviations on its upward trajectory, but the overall trend is quite promising. Google Trends data also shows that retail traders have gradually returned to the scene, but some countries are more inclined to look for the primary cryptocurrency than others. Here are the top 5.

Here’s How Bitcoin (BTC) Can Reach $150,000 This Year: Hedge Fund Manager

March 30, 2024

Bitcoin’s price has been up by more than 60% since the start of the year and it already broke its 2021 all-time high of $69,050 and charted a new one of almost $74,000. What’s most impressive about this milestone is that the latest peak came ahead of the fourth halving for the first time ever.
With just a month left until BTC’s production is sliced by half, the number of bullish predictions keeps rising, and the latest to outline $150,000 as the price target for 2024 is Morgan Creek Capital Management’s CEO and CIO – Mark Yusko.

Bitcoin has returned to $70,000 once again after falling below that level yesterday and failing to overcome it decisively during its recovery phase.
Several altcoins, like ETH, BNB, DOGE, and SHIB, have turned red on a daily scale, but SOL has performed better and stands close to $200.

Bitcoin began its recovery shortly after and neared $72,000 once more, but to no avail.

What Will Happen to ETH’s Price if the SEC Rejects All Spot Ethereum ETF Applications?

March 24, 2024

After a decade of waiting, rejecting, and delaying at best, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission finally greenlighted nearly a dozen spot Bitcoin ETFs at the start of 2024.
Their impact on BTC’s price has been undeniable as the demand for those products among traditional investors has skyrocketed. Now that there are existing exchange-traded funds tracking the performance of at least one cryptocurrency, the community speculates on whether there will be a follow-up, particularly with ETH.
