As investors grow wary after the recent surge in digital tokens, cryptocurrency prices fluctuated on Monday. At the time of publication, only one out of the top ten cryptocurrencies was trading up.
Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading close to the psychologically significant threshold of $50,000. Using the daily charts, if BTC breaks over $50,000, traders will find the next major resistance at $61,000 on the daily charts. However, the first level of support goes down to $45,000, and the second level of support appears to be at $41,000.
Currently, the worlds flagship digital asset is trading at $47,929, down 1.51% in the last 24 hours and down 4.45% in the last seven days, according to CoinMarketCap.com
In a little more than a week, Bitcoin will become legal money in El Salvador, and this event may likely see BTC break past the $50,000 psychological barrier.
Josh Rager, a well-known crypto trader, believes that Bitcoin’s price will continue to rise if it can once again break through the critical $50,000 mark.
Meanwhile, crypto trading analyst Michael van de Poppe shares a similar view that Bitcoin is still trying to push past a crucial resistance level.

Current DeFi volume is $13.81B, or 15.18% of the overall 24-hour crypto market volume.
As stated, the only gainer in the top ten was Solana (SOL), now the eighth biggest cryptocurrency; despite Bitcoin’s modest decline, Solana, on the other hand, has performed well. Solana is now changing hands at $99.26, up 5.31% in 24 hours and impressively 34.99% last week.
