Top Stories This Week
Not so long ago, the crypto community was abuzz with the expectation that Bitcoin was about to surge into five figures — dreaming dreams of a parabolic bull run. How things change. Right now, BTC is in a battle to stay in the $9,000s, and all eyes are on the weekly close. The world’s biggest cryptocurrency needed to end Sunday above $9,300 to avoid the risk of a further slide, according to Cointelegraph contributor flibflib. He says failure to retain this level will likely see BTC “retest the May lows and the 20-week moving average, currently around $8,160.” So, has Bitcoin topped out? Is there too much selling pressure around $10,000? Well, analysis of Binance’s order book suggests there is huge resistance between $9,500 and $10,005… and this is unlikely to step in until more buyers enter the market.
