The original digital asset Bitcoin has been trading above the $10,000 cap for over a month now, however, it seems the price of the coin is dropping towards the $8,500 level, according to information we gathered from YouTube compiled by senior cryptocurrency analyst Nicholas Merten alias DataDash.
BTC/USD Price Analysis
At press time, the price of BTC/USD is in the green standing at about $10,099 (3.72%) with a market cap of over $180.10 billion and daily trading volume of more than $17.45 billion. The BTC dominance is the market is now at 64.7%, according to the data from coinmarketcap.
The total market capitalization for over 2378 cryptocurrencies traded in around 19530 popular markets across the globe is standing at $278.195 billion, with the 24h volume of over $59.608 billion.
When the flagship cryptocurrency hit and surpassed the $13700 mark, the community thought it was to skyrocket further and reach or even break the record it set in December 2017 when it traded above $20k. However, since trading $13,796.49 high a month ago, the price has been seen plummeting slowly. As we talk now, its 7-day high has been $11,048.66 and $9,376.8, respectively.
Going Much Higher with Bitcoin
In his new YouTube video, Nicholas revealed that he is now purchasing Bitcoin since it is trending through the correction that he has been waiting on for a long time. According to Daily Hodl report, DataDash said:
“Anything under $10.8k is a range where I feel contented averaging in, for the reason that generally speaking that’s around a 30% correction from the highs. And anything below towards 35% - 40% is something that I consider as a great purchase opportunity because I know historically that BTC goes through corrections.”
Nicholas advised all those who want to buy Bitcoin to always consider period with good nice sideways price trend so as to have cooldown times in the cryptocurrency markets. In doing so, traders will be able to go much higher and will also allow them to create foundations on earlier resistance. That is when he came out to say that he will be purchasing 1BTC at about $8,500.
