Bitcoin hits $50,000 once again for a first time since May
Bitcoin (BTC) price is back for its second leg of the bull market after hitting the $50,000 mark once again for the first time since May. Following CoinMarketCap data, Bitcoin made it to $50,364.85 at around midnight Eastern Time, after breaking the barrier a little over an hour prior. In just a few months’ time, the top cryptocurrency recovered more than 70%.
On-chain metrics indicate that a supply squeeze could be next, with long-term holders and institutions reinforcing their BTC holdings while prices remained at a discount. On chain analyst Dylan LeClair explained how BTC’s run up from the low $30,000 range has largely been spot driven and noted on the bullish momentum.
