BTC Treads Around the $50K Barrier as ETH Follows Course Hitting $3.3k

Bitcoin recently made a bullish statement as it breakout past $50k, while ETH also broke out past its resistance level at $3.3K. The two coins seem to be eyeing new ATHs surpassing the analysts’ prediction of $100k and $20 for Bitcoin and Ethereum, respectively. Most of the other coins are also benefiting vastly from bitcoin’s bullish trend. 

BTC on an Upsurge

On Monday, 23rd August, Bitcoin made a bullish statement when it went past its long-term resistance of $50k for the second time in 2021. Generally, this happens when Bitcoin has been in a continuous recovery for several weeks. Although it moved past $50k, the coin has later slightly dropped to about $49.5k, its current value. 

Generally, bitcoin has been able to break from several short-term resistance levels in the past few days, including the most recent one at $48.5k and later $50k. Generally, breaking out past this resistance level opens the coin to even further price increases. We could see bitcoin’s prices going past $53k- to even $5k and above in the next few days. 

However, BTC will again have to break out at the next resistance at $51.8k. There are other resistance levels in the $50s, at $55k and $58k. If the currency surges past the $58k mark, it’s most likely that the coin will recover past the earlier all-time high of $64k. Bitcoin’s recent bullish statement could send this coin to around $100k towards the end of the year. 

However, the support levels for BTC are at somewhere around 48k, with the long-run support standing at $42k. The coin could begin a price plunge that would send it to $42k. The currency is currently trading at the $49k area. 

Ethereum Price Analysis

Ethereum, the second-largest crypto by market cap, is also on continuous price recovery. Currently, ETH is trading at $3.32k and $3.38k, a recovery from the 24 hour minimum of $3.14k. Ethereum started the day on a high of $3275 but slightly dropped later in the afternoon to $3142. However, Ethereum began recovering and hit a high mark of $3380. 

Today alone, the trading volume of Ethereum has increased by about 30%, meaning the coin is in a massive buy situation. To hit the $3380 mark, Ethereum had to go past a minor resistance at $3261 and another at $3350. 

The next resistance ETH faces is at $3500, and another strong one at around $3800. If it manages to break out past the two resistance levels, Ethereum will have an easier time tracing back to its ATH at about $4.5k. 

The Entire Crypto World is Growing

Although the two top crypto assets dominate the market, the entire crypto-verse is also on an upsurge. Currently, the total value of the crypto world is about $2.1 trillion and on a continuous rise. CMC shows that the Crypto world is growing fast, increasing by $2.96% in the past 24 hours.
