Bitcoin breaches key price level for first time since FTX crash - More gains for BTC ahead?

After several challenging months, the cryptocurrency market is recording slow gains again, driven by its largest asset by market capitalization – Bitcoin (BTC), which has recently crossed an important threshold for the first time since the collapse of the crypto trading platform FTX.

Indeed, recent charts have demonstrated that Bitcoin has had a confirmed break above its 50-day moving average (MA) for the first time since the crash of once one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world, investment insights platform Game of Trades highlighted on its Twitter profile on January 10.

According to the analytics platform’s post, after the break above $16,857, the next key resistance level that the maiden cryptocurrency will have to break above for a bullish continuance has currently formed in the area at around $17,600, with the next resistance located at $19,031.

At the same time, Bitcoin’s market cap stands at $333.24 billion, whereas its 24-hour trading volume amounts to $16.09 billion (931,583 BTC), positioning it at second place by this indicator, as Tether (USDT) ranks first with daily trading volume of $26.07 billion, according to CoinMarketCap data retrieved by Finbold on January 10.

It should also be noted that the early Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) investor Bill Miller III has consistently demonstrated his enthusiasm about Bitcoin’s “remarkable” performance, recently praising it as ‘dramatically different’ from all other crypto entities and lauding its trading consistency when traditional markets were struggling.
