Bitcoin Is Back Above $10K

Another day, another milestone.

Crypto enthusiasts were collectively watching the price of Bitcoin (BTC) like a hawk over the weekend as the dominant cryptocurrency flirted with the $10,000 price mark.

While it did eventually break that milestone, it only lasted for a second — a flash crash sent the price back down to $9,700 and attention once again turned to waiting for BTC to bounce back.

That tear back into five-figure price territory happened almost exactly at 10:30 a.m. EST today. BTC crested at $10,392 approximately 35 minutes after breaking $10,000 and appears to be leveling out around $10,200.

Gavin Smith, the CEO of crypto consortium Panxora, gave his opinion on the price action, telling Cointelegraph:

“BTC started rising during the market sell-off triggered by coronavirus. That was just the short-term catalyst, the underlying driver is the Bitcoin halving event in May. Previous halving events have seen some of the larger participants hold off on releasing BTC into the market in anticipation of a rise during the event. We believe this same dynamic is currently in play.”
