Today, the market-leading crypto, Bitcoin, once again stunned investors after hitting over $19,000 for the first time since 2017.
Will it break its historical high? Or is a correction in store for you?
Bitcoin scales the skyscraper
At the time of writing, the price of Bitcoin remains above USD 19,000, achieving a cumulative increase over the last three months of 66%. However, it seems to be showing signs of recession.
We’d all like to know exactly what Bitcoin’s next move will be. Is it time to invest?
It seems that everything has been happening very fast, however, Bitcoin has been climbing the skyscraper little by little since Black Thursday in March. Obviously, many crypto-investors are afraid that the history of 2017 will repeat itself, but the set of circumstances that drive it are completely different.
Meanwhile, gold has been running down since August and seems to be moving towards a balanced relationship between buyers and sellers.
However, according to CoinTelegraph’s Joseph Young, based on several data points in the chain, there is quite likely to be a reversal in the price of the leading crypt.
Young evaluated the Spent Output Profit Ratio (SOPR) indicator, stablecoins entries, stacked sales orders at USD 19.00 and the Crypto and Fear Index.
So, although Bitcoin could soon break its historical high, we could see a price decline. Watch out!

Turning Point in Bitcoin Crypt History
Christine Sandler, head of sales and marketing at Fidelity Digital Assets, explained during the Unchained podcast that factors such as the pandemic and productive regulation have helped the leading crypto this year.
Therefore, Sandler considers that 2020 has been a key year for Bitcoin adoption. So much so that Fidelity is considering opening its services to retail investors at some point.
„What we did see in 2020 was a wider adoption of that digital gold narrative, it began to resonate with other institutional investor groups, namely hedge funds, ultra high net worth individuals and later family offices,“ said Sandler.
