The digital asset market began the week with a fall. At the press-time, Bitcoin is trading at $ 9,779. The daily decrease in the rate of BTC was 2.20%. All cryptocurrencies from the TOP-10 of the CoinMarketCap capitalization rating also demonstrate negative dynamics.
The local maximum of the Bitcoin rate at the level of $ 10,424 was reached on February 13. Note, that the negative movement realized against the background of the decline in popularity of Bitcoin on Twitter to the minimum values and registration of the largest transaction on the BTC network. But there are still reasons for optimism as the number of phrases “Buy Bitcoin” is growing steadily.
Also, the upward momentum is often not supported by sufficient trading volumes. At the same time, bearish divergences were observed on the RSI indicator. As a result of insufficient buyers pressure, the BTC/USD price fell below $ 10,000 by the end of the week.
Many participants in the crypto community are still confident in the prospects for the growth in value of the asset, despite the negative movement of the most capitalized cryptocurrency.
According to the manager of the investment company Capriole, Charles Edwards, the combination of Bitcoin technical features will be able to bring the cryptocurrency rate to the level of $ 100,000 for 5 years.
“Based on a conservative estimate of Bitcoin’s Energy Value, it is likely that BTC will 10X within the next 5 years,” he posts.
