Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading at around $7,500 following a minor 2% increase in price since last Friday. BTC broke most of its support levels during a huge sell-off in November as the coin looked to be free falling.

Bitcoin could be heading to yearly lows following last month's death cross and a lack of positive sentiment. Bitcoin endured a distressing exponential moving average death cross on the daily chart on November 23, with several analysts suggesting that a descent to $5,900 is now on the cards. However, there has been a period of relative calm since the death cross, with Bitcoin languishing along the $7,350 level of support following a brief rally to $7,850 earlier this week. The previous two death crosses took place during the 2014 and 2018 bear markets, with Bitcoin proceeding to fall by more than 60% on both occasions.

A crypto enthusiast who lost four Bitcoin on the Lightning Network in October has now managed to recover most of the missing funds, according to an update post on Reddit. What is the Lightning Network? One of the most interesting projects in the cryptocurrency space, in my opinion, is the Lightning Network protocol (LN). Even though some traders and analysts have plenty of criticisms regarding the development of the LN, I argue the open-source P2P payment channel technology is here to stay. The LN not only affects Bitcoin, but the technology can also gap bridges between projects. In a way, the Lightning Network has the potential to achieve what many other projects can only dream of: to become an interoperableThe post Four Bitcoin lost on the Lightning Network finally recovered appeared first on Coin Rivet.
Bitcoin unexpectedly rose by 8% in just three minutes earlier today as bullish sentiment begins to re-enter the cryptocurrency markets. Following an abrasive daily candle close which saw Bitcoin suddenly drop from $7,300 to $7,100 yesterday evening, it consolidated today at $7,200 before surging towards the $7,800 level of resistance. The dramatic rise from $7,200 to $7,800 saw a total of $59.71 million in short positions liquidated on derivatives exchange BitMEX, according to Datamish. Price has now began to consolidate in the $7,500 region, which could fuel a continuation rally back to the $8,000 region. However, the 100 exponential moving average (EMA) on the four-hour chart has been a bitter point of resistance on three occasions over the past month,The post $60 million liquidated as Bitcoin pumps 8% in three minutes appeared first on Coin Rivet.
