    Bitcoin eyes bullish reversal with surge towards $9,000

    Bitcoin has its sights firmly set on breaking into the $9,000 region over the weekend after rallying above the $8,830 level of resistance. The world's largest cryptocurrency is now 37% up since December 17 having experienced a 12% move to the upside since Monday. The next two levels of resistance before the psychological level of $10,000 are at $9,050 and $9,325, which will most likely act as resting points if the rally continues into the weekend. However, Bitcoin needs to close today's daily candle above $8,830 to confirm the breakout. A slump from here would effectively indicate another rejection that will likely cause a corrective move to the downside.

    How does Bitcoin’s hash rate impact price?

    Recently, cryptocurrency enthusiasts on Twitter have been debating whether the Bitcoin block reward halving event has already been priced in by miners and investors and the impact of a high hash rate on BTC price. When the halving event finally comes around in May, I see two major possibilities: A) BTC increases in price in order to accommodate miners at the current mining difficulty. B) BTC price stays more or less the same and we see miners capitulating as they become unprofitable. To better understand which scenario is most likely to happen, I believe two key data points need to be taken into consideration - namely the hash rate (and expected hash rate) and the behaviour of hodlers.
