Bitcoin Price Renews High Above $22,000 – Is $30,000 Next?

December 17, 2020 at 9:15 by Mark Stevenson

On December 17, the price of one bitcoin price again renewed its all-time high at levels above $22,000.

In just a day, Bitcoin broke through $20,000 and $21,000. After the breakthrough of $20,000, news media around the world reported on Bitcoin. The rally was even talked about on the Chinese state television channel CCTV with an audience of 1 billion people.

As a result, expectations for the re-entry of investors who had withdrawn after the burst of the bubble increased.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin price on Bitstamp is trading above $22,800 at 9:02 GMT.

Against the background of growth, the number of Bitcoin addresses with coins of $1 million or more has reached an absolute maximum. After breaking the $20,000 mark, the addresses of all early miners who mined only 50 BTC became millionaires.

Is $30,000 now possible?

According to some crypto enthusiasts, Bitcoin bulls now target the $30,000 mark as the market runs in fear of missing out (FOMO) and retail buyers jumping in.

Speaking with Bloomberg, Antoni Trenchev, co-founder and managing partner of Nexo, a crypto lender said:

We have a new line in the sand and the focus shifts to the next round number of $30,000.

Earlier this year, Alex Mashinsky, the CEO of the crypto lending platform Celcius Networksaid he believes that the leading digital asset could reach as high as $30,000 by 2021.

I think that Bitcoin ends the year with a new high. I estimated $30,000 but it’s going to be somewhere between $20,000 and $30,000.

However, the new highs above these levels are unknown areas and there is no upside resistance line in the history of cryptocurrencies. On the other hand, there is a risk of a sharp drop due to large profit-taking, so we would like to be careful about fluctuations due to a large increase in volatility.

Altcoins follow Bitcoin bull rally

Ethereum set a new maximum since 2018 — above $650. Market capitalization has exceeded $640 billion. The open interest (OI) for altcoins in the futures market also increased. The growth leaders were Ethereum and Litecoin.
