Latest Bitcoin (BTC) News
In its pure form, Bitcoin is a blend of different fields. Learning the nitty gritties of Bitcoin and
blockchain, therefore, demands one to learn the ropes of information theory, of cryptography,
computer science, economics, and even psychology thanks to the psyche element that’s so
unique digital assets.
Bitcoin is a working platform, its source code is robust and behind the tech is a global
community that is securing the network, wading off attacks. It is the Internet money, the
currency of the web, and of the people that is indeed a revolution.
Although certain jurisdictions are yet to formulate laws to effectively control and even accept
the coin, it’s using is far-reaching and even consequential. The asset is a relief for the unbanked, a
store of value for those in shaky economies and literally a haven that could rival Gold in the

BTC/USD Price Analysis
At the moment, Bitcoin (BTC) is changing hands at $8,750 and up 8.9 percent in the last 24
hours. Because of the demand behind the asset, BTC is now trading above our minor resistance
and first target of $8,500 in a minor breakout and trend continuation.
Simply because of this, traders are free to fine-tune entries in smaller time frames now that
Bitcoin is free from the minor $1,000 consolidation with floors at $7,500. In line with our last
BTC/USD trade plans, bulls are firmly in control and after April close above $4,500, prices broke
above a 7-month resistance trend line ushering in a wave of buy pressure, effectively rewinding

aim at $10,000 and later $12,000. Both are crucial resistance levels and most importantly,
$10,000 is not only a liquidation level but a psychological round number.
