Human Rights Foundation CSO pede aos leitores da Time que não ‚demonizem‘ o Bitcoin

“O bitcoin é neutro como o dinheiro e não pode discriminar entre o bem e o mal”, disse Gladstein.

Alex Gladstein, diretor de estratégia da Human Rights Foundation, está alertando os americanos sobre a narrativa vinda de meios de comunicação que relatam criptografia e outras ferramentas de privacidade

Em um artigo para a Time Magazine publicado hoje, Gladstein disse que muitos veículos de notícias cobrindo histórias sobre aplicativos de mensagens com foco em privacidade Signal ou Bitcoin ( BTC ) tendem a associá-los a terroristas ou organizações criminosas. O executivo da Fundação de Direitos Humanos recuou em narrativas que pintam a privacidade e a autossoberania sob uma luz negativa, dizendo que a próxima luta seria mudar para dinheiro – neste caso, criptomoedas.

“As autoridades culparão o extremismo não apenas no Signal e no Telegram, mas também no Bitcoin e em qualquer coisa que eles não possam controlar”, disse Gladstein.

Ele adicionou:

“Bitcoin é neutro como dinheiro e não pode discriminar entre o bem e o mal […] Alguns extremistas usam essas ferramentas. Eles também usam telefones celulares, e-mail e internet. ”

Gladstein afirmou que a privacidade financeira era tão essencial para um estado democrático saudável quanto a privacidade nas ferramentas de comunicação. Ele destacou como jovens manifestantes pró-democracia em Hong Kong usaram dinheiro em vez de cartões de crédito para viajar para as manifestações, de forma que as autoridades teriam mais dificuldade em rastreá-los.

Enquanto isso, funcionários do governo na Bielo-Rússia, Rússia e Nigéria puderam “monitorar e congelar contas bancárias” para qualquer pessoa associada a movimentos semelhantes. Nesses casos, muitos grupos e indivíduos pró-democracia conseguiram usar a criptografia para contornar essas medidas e ainda obter financiamento. Por exemplo, uma criptografia baseada na Ucrânia recusou-se a atender a uma solicitação oficial do Departamento de Investigações Financeiras da Bielo-Rússia para fornecer informações pessoais sobre indivíduos que poderiam ser potencialmente rotulados como dissidentes.

“A maioria dos americanos pode ainda não compreender que a privacidade financeira é tão importante quanto a privacidade das comunicações para nossa democracia – que seus hábitos de consumo dizem mais sobre você do que suas palavras”, disse Gladstein. “Em uma sociedade aberta, a capacidade de comprar livros políticos, ter procedimentos médicos discretos e construir comunidades sem vigilância governamental é essencial.

O executivo da Human Rights Foundation advertiu que abandonar ferramentas financeiras como o Bitcoin poderia levar a um estado policial maior nos EUA, alimentado por “vigilância em massa para combater o extremismo”.

Não está claro se essa narrativa mudará sob a administração do novo presidente dos EUA, Joe Biden. Muitos no espaço criptográfico estão aparentemente otimistas quanto à escolha de Biden para chefiar a Comissão de Valores Mobiliários , o ex-presidente da Comissão de Negociação de Futuros de Commodities, Gary Gensler. Janet Yellen, confirmada como Secretária do Tesouro no Senado dos EUA ontem, disse que as criptomoedas são „principalmente para financiamento ilícito“, mas ela planejava encorajar seu uso para „atividades legítimas“.

Prof. Kenneth Rogoff: ‚Bitcoin will explode‘

Prof. Kenneth Rogoff: ‚Bitcoin will explode‘

Bitcoin will soon be regulated and the bubble will burst, that’s what Harvard professor Kenneth Rogoff thinks.

He stated this in an interview with us.

These are his words:

„Well, certainly I think I agree that [Bitcoin] is speculative. I’ve been a Bitcoin skeptic and certainly the price has gone up. But there’s sort of a final question about what the utility is. It only has value because people think it has value. This is a bubble that would burst.“

According to Rogoff Bitcoin Formula certainly cannot bankrupt states and current monetary systems:

„I can imagine Bitcoin being used in failed states. It is conceivable that it might have some utility in a dystopian future. But I think all governments will not allow anonymous transactions on a large scale. They simply won’t allow it. Regulation will come. The government will win. It doesn’t matter what the technology is. So I think you know that beyond if there is no use, in the long run, yes, the bubble will burst. I hope there isn’t such a valuable use but I suppose it’s a hedge against dystopia.

Rogoff also says he is aware that any regulation could cause the price of cryptocurrencies to fall, but adds:

„That’s not the purpose. But you know you have to have transactions that obey the same kind of information rules as everything else. So I think governments are working on that. It’s not used that widely. And I suspect that even though Bitcoin lobbyists have been successful in getting it in some places, it’s not going to last.“

The Validity of Kenneth Rogoff’s Theses on Bitcoin

Kenneth Rogoff, besides being a professor at Harvard, has also been Chief Economist at the International Monetary Fund. He is considered one of the top ten economists in RePEc’s Ranking, the Research Papers in Economics that disseminate economic research by bringing together experts from 102 countries around the world.

In short, his point of view is by no means marginal.

What is certain is that the possibility of regulating cryptocurrencies is more than concrete. Janet Yellen, the new Biden-era US Treasury Secretary, will work on it. She herself, while recognising the potential of cryptocurrencies, suggested that regulation could be done to encourage legitimate use, while curbing illicit uses.

Only a few days earlier, Yellen had stated that Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are used for illegal purposes. These words were enough to make the market turn negative. This episode proves the validity of Rogoff’s argument that regulation would drive down the prices of crypto assets.

Ripple places his hopes in Biden’s administration, while his co-founder sells 28.6 million XRPs

Ripple’s general counsel, Stu Alderoty, predicted that Joe Biden’s administration would probably „help level the playing field“ for the cryptomorphs

Ripple places his hopes in Biden’s administration, while his co-founder sells 28.6 million XRPNOTÍCIAS

After closing 2020, facing a lawsuit from the US Securities and Exchange Commission under Donald Trump, Ripple’s leadership is looking to the new year and a new US president to bring about a change in regulations more favourable to the company.

According to a posting on Ripple’s website with comments from key executives, the company is predicting that the next Biden administration will likely „bring a renewed focus on regulation and enforcement“ in the cryptomorph market.

„As we have seen, the lack of a clear regulatory framework over the last four years in the US in particular has left fintech and blockchain players in a limbo state,“ the post said. „Other countries like the UK, Switzerland, Singapore and Japan are far ahead.

Both Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and co-founder Chris Larsen expressed their criticism of the SEC’s policy of „regulation through coercion“ ahead of the process.

Stu Alderoty, the company’s general counsel, was quoted in the article as saying that he believes Biden’s management will make regulation of cryptomites a priority over the next four years because he „understands its implications for public and private sector innovation.

„Smart, well thought-out regulations communicated effectively and uniformly applied can help level the playing field and trigger innovation and greater mainstream adoption here in the U.S.“.
Garlinghouse echoed that sentiment yesterday, praising Biden’s SEC President nominee, Gary Gensler, as an individual more likely to be friendly to Ripple and the crypto and blockchain industry as a whole:

The news comes at the same time that Jed McCaleb has resumed his extraordinary sale of portions of the 9.5 billion XRP he received as co-founder of Ripple before leaving the company in 2014. The analyst, Leonidas Hadjiloizou, reported that yesterday McCaleb sold 28.6 million XRP – about US$8.5 million at the time of publication – after 25 days of no apparent activity following the news of the Ripple SEC case.

McCaleb still has billions of XRP tokens available in his portfolios. In December, Whale Alert reported that Ripple’s co-founder liquidated 1.2 billion XRP in 2020 for over US$400 million, reducing its total XRP tokens to around 3.25 billion at the time of publication, or US$970million.

Ripple is facing an SEC case opened in December alleging that the company has been selling XRP tokens in violation of US securities laws. The case is scheduled for a pre-trial virtual conference on February 22.

At the time of publication, the price of XRP was R$0.30, up 2.9% in the last 24 hours.

Il mercato si ribalta rialzista mentre Bitcoin spinge oltre i 19.000 dollari, i supporti tecnici chiave tengono

Dopo essere sceso fino a 17.600 dollari a metà della scorsa settimana, Bitcoin è entrato in una tendenza al rialzo.

La moneta attualmente viene scambiata per 19.200 dollari al momento della stesura di questo articolo, anche se si è mossa fino a 19.400 dollari solo poche ore fa. Questo è il Bitcoin più alto che il Bitcoin ha scambiato in circa una settimana.

Mentre alcuni hanno postulato che la Bitcoin potrebbe essere in ripresa a causa della diversa dinamica del mercato vista nei fine settimana rispetto ai giorni feriali, c’è un numero crescente di nomi di spicco convinti che questo sia il vero breakout.

Perché gli investitori Bitcoin si stanno finalmente convincendo del caso del toro

I migliori analisti si stavano dirigendo verso la settimana scorsa per una buona ragione: le balene avevano iniziato a depositare più BTC nelle borse, il dollaro americano aveva iniziato a rimbalzare, c’erano segnali tecnici che richiedevano una correzione, e le voci sulla regolamentazione erano molto diffuse.

I loro timori si sono dimostrati giusti, dato che la moneta è scesa da oltre 19.000 dollari ai minimi a 17.600 dollari, come già detto.

Mentre alcune delle preoccupazioni di cui sopra sono ancora valide – in particolare, la regolamentazione criptata è ancora in corso – questi stessi analisti hanno avuto un cambiamento d’opinione, poiché hanno notato le tendenze chiave del mercato Bitcoin.

Un trader storicamente accurato, chiamato „Bitcoin Jack“, ha condiviso domenica mattina che con i livelli di supporto tecnico chiave che tengono mentre i compratori assorbono la pressione di vendita, ha iniziato a riacquistare sul mercato:

„Il prezzo è tornato al punto in cui ho abbandonato il mio posto per l’ultima volta e molto vicino ai miei livelli di invalidazione, ho riacquistato la mia esposizione al posto perché il mercato continua a comprare in picchi di resistenza“.

„Bitcoin Jack“ è considerato uno dei migliori trader su Twitter, avendo chiamato il fondo di marzo 2020, la successiva inversione a forma di V a 10.000 dollari, poi l’ultima tappa oltre i 18.000 dollari e oltre, molto prima che accadesse qualsiasi di questi eventi.

I fondamentali sono forti anche per Bitcoin.

Matt Kaye, un socio dirigente di BlockHead Capital, ha notato sabato che secondo la sua matematica del „rough, back of the napkin“, ci sono almeno 820 milioni di dollari di Bitcoin che saranno acquistati „tra qui e almeno 20 mila dollari“.

Kaye sta probabilmente facendo riferimento alle notizie su MicroStrategy, MassMutual e altri attori istituzionali e aziendali che stanno acquistando Bitcoin da aggiungere al loro bilancio.

Per evidenziare MicroStrategy in particolare, la scorsa settimana la società ha raccolto 650 milioni di dollari in un’offerta di debito privata. L’azienda cerca di acquistare BTC e BTC da sola con quel capitale.

India: significant growth in crypto adoption in 2020

The adoption of cryptos in India is growing strongly in 2020.

In particular, some data suggest that it could go so far as to snatch from China the scepter of the Asian country with the largest volume of trade.

This is revealed by a report by Arcane Research that analysed in particular the exchange volumes of bitcoins on P2P platforms such as LocalBitcoins and Paxful.

Limited to the Asia-Pacific area, India and China are currently on the same level, both accounting for 33% of total P2P trading volume. All other Asian countries combined barely reach 34%.

These include the Philippines and Thailand, both with average weekly volumes in excess of $800,000, with the Philippines experiencing strong growth, with weekly volumes at the beginning of the year at just $50,000, and the main national exchange reaching 10 million users.

But India is the real protagonist, given that until last year China dominated these rankings unchallenged.

The growth occurred particularly on Paxful, where the weekly volume increased from less than 80 million rupees at the end of 2019 to over 200 million in September, while from July onwards it has always been over 150 million.

At this point it is fair to imagine that an overtaking could occur in the near future, given that volumes in China do not seem to be significantly higher than in the past.

Among other things, the ban on exchanging fiat money in cryptocurrency in China has favoured P2P platforms without intermediaries, whereas in India this ban no longer exists, so in theory P2P platforms should not be particularly favoured.

Moreover, in China, for example, Paxful has become the leader in this market since LocalBitcoins introduced the mandatory KYC for all, and in fact Paxful dominates the Asian P2P trading market, with a total weekly volume of over $5 million, compared to $4 million for LocalBitcoins.

Looking only at the figures for the second half of 2020, India has already overtaken China from this point of view, precisely because there has not been the powerful growth in China that there has been in India since July.

Therefore, in reality there has already been an overtaking in the short term, while as far as annual volumes are concerned, it will presumably have to wait a little longer.

Why has crypto adoption increased in India in 2020?

The report also identifies some possible reasons behind this Indian boom.

First, the removal of the ban by the Supreme Court in March: after the abolition of banking restrictions, the weekly P2P volume increased by 87%.

In addition, there is a strong distrust of the traditional financial system in India, due to very unpopular decisions such as the withdrawal of high-value banknotes in 2016.

The Indian rupee has been underperforming against the US dollar for years and is now worth 10% less than it was before 2016.

Finally, there is the issue of remittances. In fact, according to the World Bank, India is the main country in the world receiving remittances, so much so that in 2019 they amounted to 83 billion dollars, as much as 2.9% of the national GDP.

These remittances may have lower costs and limitations if cryptocurrency is used, and given that due to the pandemic it is estimated that they will be reduced by 23%, it is possible that several Indians have thought of converting some of their savings into bitcoins.

As trade volumes generally increase as the price of BTC rises, if there is further growth next year, then India’s final overtaking of China can be expected in terms of P2P crypto trade volume.

Analista técnico superior diz que Bitcoin está formando uma configuração „clássica“ superior

O Bitcoin passou por um rally extremo nos últimos dias

Depois de ter ficado em baixa na região de 16.100 dólares na semana passada, a moeda subiu para 19.600 dólares a partir da redação deste artigo
A moeda foi negociada até 19.900 dólares mais cedo hoje.
John Bollinger está avisando que a Bitcoin Up poderá em breve encontrar uma alta de curto a médio prazo.

A Bitcoin poderia em breve encontrar um topo, diz o analista

O Bitcoin passou por um rali extremo nos últimos dias. Depois de ter ficado em baixa na região de 16.100 dólares na semana passada, a moeda subiu para mais de 19.600 dólares a partir da redação deste artigo. Hoje cedo, a moeda foi negociada até $19.900 em alguns mercados à vista e mais de $20.000 em alguns dos mercados futuros da CME.

Espera-se que a Bitcoin obtenha novos ganhos nas próximas semanas, à medida que a moeda poste sua melhor vela mensal para fechar. Espera-se também que a BTC veja uma enorme vela anual fechar, caso mantenha estes níveis até o final do ano.

Alguns estão avisando que pode haver uma correção no horizonte, no entanto.

O lendário analista técnico, John Bollinger, diz que é provável que haja uma queda ou consolidação do Bitcoin. Bollinger é conhecido pelo indicador Bollinger Bands, que ele criou. O indicador é agora um grampo nas caixas de ferramentas de muitos comerciantes.

Bollinger comentou o Bitcoin na manhã de segunda-feira, referindo-se ao gráfico abaixo:

„OK, hora de prestar atenção, $BTCUSD“. Esta é uma configuração clássica de topo. Nenhuma confirmação ainda e a configuração poderia ser facilmente ultrapassada, mas os comerciantes sensatos deveriam lavar seus óculos“.

Bollinger é há muito tempo um fã do Bitcoin. Ele segue ativamente o mercado e tem emitido previsões assustadoramente precisas no passado, tais como a chamada de alguns movimentos intra-semana em outubro de 2019 e a previsão de algumas ações de preços no início deste ano.

Início de uma Grande Corrida de Touros

Seja qual for o caso, os analistas pensam que o rally em andamento é o início de uma tendência de touro de longo prazo que levará Bitcoin muito acima de seu recorde anterior.

O CIO de Off the Chain Capital disse recentemente à Globe and Mail que ele acha que a mudança da Bitcoin para $100.000 neste ciclo de mercado não é implausível:

„Eu vi o BTC subir 10X, 20X, 30X em um ano“. Portanto, subir 5X não é um grande negócio“.

Outros também fizeram esta forte afirmação.

Raoul Pal, CEO da Real Vision, disse recentemente que acha que a Bitcoin poderia atingir US$ 1.000.000 nos próximos cinco anos como resultado dos influxos institucionais. Pal acaba de anunciar que 98% de seu patrimônio líquido (líquido) está atualmente em criptograma, seja Bitcoin ou ETH.

BITCOIN WEKELIJKSE VOORUITZICHTEN: TIJD OM TE VALLEN EN EEN NIEUWE PRIJSBASIS TE VINDEN

Bitcoin onderging vorige week vrijdag na [bijna] het slaan van $16.000 een flinke tegenslag.

De duik volgde op een massale opwaartse rally die begon te midden van het Amerikaanse presidentiële verkiezingsseizoen. Handelaren verwachtten dat een beslissende politieke wedstrijd de weg zou vrijmaken voor een langdurende tweede coronavirus relief bill. Als gevolg daarvan zullen de mensen hun kapitaal gaan verschuiven van anti-risicovolle valuta’s naar mierenechtelijke activa.

Bitcoin heeft geprofiteerd van het wereldwijde marktsentiment omdat het fungeerde als een hedge tegen de US-dollar. De biedingen van de cryptocurrency schoten omhoog toen de greenback viel. En een bevestigde overwinning voor Joe Biden, de Democratische genomineerde die beloofde de overheidsuitgavenprogramma’s tegen de coronaviruspandemie uit te breiden, vergrootte de vooruitzichten op een hogere Bitcoin.

DEZE WEEK

De verkiezingsuitslagen van de VS zijn met hun aandeel in het politieke drama gekomen. De zittende president Donald Trump heeft een rechtszaak aangespannen in zijn poging om de verkiezingsstemmen voor de heer Biden te betwisten. Het heeft enige onzekerheid gebracht in de financiële markten, aangezien de staten meer stemmen tellen in de komende dagen.

Ondertussen is de Senaatswedstrijd in Georgië ook op zoek naar een afvloeiing. Deskundigen merken op dat het eindresultaat pas begin januari zal komen. Zij denken ook dat de Republikeinen de meerderheid in het Senaatshuis zullen behouden. Het zou vertragingen betekenen voor Mr. Biden in het passeren van de uitgavenrekeningen die hij beloofde in zijn verkiezingscampagne.

Voor Bitcoin-handelaren is het nu de vraag wanneer niet. Het stijgende aantal coronavirusgevallen in de VS heeft de mogelijkheid van een tweede hulppakket aan de orde gesteld. Geen enkele politicus kan het Amerikaanse publiek negeren als hun staten een gedeeltelijke of volledige lockdown invoeren zoals in de Europese landen. Uiteindelijk zal er een pakket aankomen.

Het wachten is de enige bullish oefening die een gemiddelde Bitcoin Up-handelaar kan doen.

Ondertussen zouden mensen met een onrustige, korte termijn risicobereidheid hun posities liever verkopen op de huidige hogere niveaus. Tegenover een lagere koopvraag bij gebrek aan concrete tussentijdse fundamentals kan de Bitcoin-prijs dus dalen om een nieuw draagvlak te vinden.

BITCOIN-VOORUITZICHTEN, UITGELEGD

Tussen maandag en woensdag zijn er deze week geen invloedrijke marktevenementen. Op donderdag en vrijdag kan de markt echter enige volatiliteit verwachten als de autoriteiten de Consumer Price Index, de Initial Jobless Claims en de Consumer Sentiment rapporten over de Amerikaanse economie vrijgeven.

Ondertussen zal de Federal Reserve de rentetarieven vrijwel gelijk houden en zal de stimulans in een impasse blijven. Dat laat Bitcoin-handelaren voldoende redenen over om hun kortetermijnwinsten in contanten veilig te stellen.

De grondbeginselen passen bij de technische vooringenomenheid. Bitcoin blijft binnen een overboughtgebied dat een verdere neerwaartse correctie inhoudt. Mocht dat gebeuren, dan kijkt de BTC/USD-wisselkoers naar het $13.500- $14.500 gebied om ondersteuning te bieden. Elke uitgebreide daling onder het bereik zou de $10.500-steun in zicht brengen.

Bitcoin is 113 procent hoger op een jaar-tot-datum tijdsbestek.

One of the biggest Bitcoin wallets ($ 955 million) was emptied – Dantesque hack… or leak?

Poof Bitcoin – It’s an extraordinary and mysterious bitcoin movement that just happened on November 3rd. A huge wallet linked to the Silk Road black market and which contained 69,370 BTC has just been completely emptied .

An extraordinary transaction

CipherTrace is a cybersecurity and blockchain transaction monitoring company. On November 3, she spotted an exceptional movement from a Bitcoin wallet (at the address 1HQ3Go3ggs8pFnXuHVHRytPCq5fGG8Hbhx).

An anonymous has just transferred the 69,370 BTC of this wallet, or more than 955 million dollars , to another address whose owner is also unknown . He first transferred 1 BTC (probably as a test ), before transferring 69,369.

The bitcoins that have been moved are believed to originally come from the Silk Road darknet black market .

Details of the wallet and its nearly $ 1 billion bitcoin transaction

According to CipherTrace, it appears that this transaction was performed „to switch from one address format to another“ . Indeed, the old address is a Legacy / P2PKH address (starting with a „1“ ), while the new address is a Bech32 / P2WPKH address (starting with „bc1q“ ).

A voluntary action or a hack?

While CipherTrace believes this important move may simply have been made to „stay up to date with the Bitcoin network“ , the cybersurveillance company believes there is also a possibility that the wallet was „cracked by hackers . “

Indeed, the existing wallet since 2015 , it is well known to the Darknet hackers , many of whom seem to have tried to access it. It must be said that the BTC in play represents a good sum.

We can also note that, these bitcoins having been deposited well before the successive hard forks of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and BSV , an equivalent quantity of these forked cryptos were also moved to new BCH and BSV addresses a priori specially created for the occasion.

Whether it is the original owner or a hacker, he has very conscientiously transferred this “small change” , which represents respectively 16.3 million and 10 million dollars .

No one knows why this transaction took place or what future this large amount of bitcoins will see. The sulphurous origin of these BTCs remains engraved in the blockchain, however, and it will prove difficult to sell them – in any case quickly, even going through mixing services to confuse the issue.

Bitcoin (BTC) reaches its high of the previous year – investors take profits

Bitcoin was able to continue its rally, rising to last year’s high of $ 13,858. BTC dominance can benefit from this bullish move and continue to rise as well.

However, a sale on the global financial market due to rising Covid-19 numbers has allowed the BTC rate to be significantly corrected in the last few hours

The key currency Bitcoin has not stopped and rose significantly northwards this week as well. On Wednesday, October 28th, the BTC price hit the 2019 annual high of 13,858 US dollars. First investors are currently taking profits. The BTC price drops around $ 600 in the last hours of trading and at the time of this analysis is standing at $ 13,223. The assumption made in the last analysis that the key currency can further break away from the current correction in the classic market was thus confirmed. However, this situation can change suddenly as soon as investors get cold feet because of new corona risks and liquidate all assets.

Bullish scenario (Bitcoin price)

The current consolidation of the BTC rate is not surprising after the rally in recent weeks and in the medium term it is very healthy for a sustained rise in the key currency. It is now important for the bulls that the BTC rate does not slide below $ 12,492. From this level, renewed attempts to climb towards US $ 13,858 can be expected. If the bulls can dynamically break this mark higher than the daily closing price, the chances of a march towards the next price target of 14,805 US dollars increase. If the price of Bitcoin then stays above 13,858 US dollars, further subsequent increases in the direction of 15,814 US dollars and a maximum of 16,262 US dollars are to be planned. As long as investor interest continues unabated, there are 17,187 US dollars and 17. $ 810 other possible target areas. Only a significant break in these resistance levels would pave the way towards the all-time high of $ 19,882.

Bearish scenario (Bitcoin rate)

The bears are currently trying to build up some selling pressure. If the BTC price slips below the first important support at 13,198 US dollars, this would be the first sign of life for the bears. A first proper consistency test can be expected at $ 12,492. Increased resistance from the bull camp can be expected at this support at the latest. Only when the BTC rate slips well below this key support do the chances of an expanded rate consolidation improve. If the bears manage to break through the 12,492 US dollar daily closing price, a relapse to 12,307 US dollars and 11,806 US dollars must be planned.

If these two supports are consistently undershot and the US $ 11,500 also drops, the breakout level at US $ 11,099 will come back into focus in the coming weeks. In this area, bullish investors are likely to come back again and try to stabilize the BTC price. If the bears can win the battle for this chart mark and dynamically push the BTC price back below $ 11,099, the current price rally would be over for the time being. As long as the Bitcoin price can defend this mark, BTC prices can be expected to continue to rise in the medium term.
