After losing the important psychological level at $30,000, Bitcoin (BTC) has been struggling to regain it, continuously making choppy chart patterns underneath. However, some cryptocurrency analysts see this as a good sign and an indicator of a smoother ride toward a new all-time high (ATH) in 2023.
Indeed, Bitcoin spending a lot of time under the $30,000 mark before the next rally suggests less choppy movements around $40,000, $50,000, and even $60,000, with the possibility of an ATH this year, as observed in a tweet shared by crypto analyst CrediBULL Crypto on April 26.
Bitcoin’s choppy price
As it happens, Bitcoin breached the $30,000 barrier on April 11, remaining in that zone until April 19, when it started the descend to $27,000. On April 26, it seemed to be moving toward breaking the resistance again, as it briefly reached the price of $29,970, only to drop to $27,942 in a single hour but improving later on.
Meanwhile, the flagship decentralized finance (DeFi) asset was at press time changing hands at the price of $29,018, up 0.47% in the last 24 hours, as well as recording an equally modest increase of 0.64% across the previous seven days, adding up to the 6.75% gain on its monthly chart, as per data retrieved on April 27.
Interestingly, shortly after the recent decline in price, blockchain analytics firm Arkham sent out alerts that crypto wallets supposedly linked to defunct crypto exchange Mt. Gox and the United States government had moved large amounts of Bitcoin, as shared by Twitter user db. However, the company first said this had happened in error, only to later correct itself, stating that the platform had sent the alerts “accurately in this case.”
