Bitcoin Prices Surged 5 Percent Since Monday, Currently Stands At $4,115: ReportSeptember 27, 2017 6:50 pm
Bitcoin prices surged 5 percent during a 24-hour period Wednesday, Cryptocoinsnews reported, increasing from $3,930 to $4,115.
Bitcoin analysts and long-time traders – including Tone Vays and Squeeze – have reaffirmed their short-term interim targets of a $5,000 Bitcoin price, the report said.
Squeeze, the report said, believes if the current upward momentum of bitcoin can be sustained over the next few days, it is likely bitcoin will achieve a new all-time high price in the region of $6,000 within the next month.
On Monday, stock prices in the U.S., South Korea, and Japan fell substantially after North Korea accused the U.S. of declaring war against its regime, Cryptocoinsnews reported. Since then, bitcoin has rebounded from $3,500 to $4,100, a $600 gain in less than three days.
Currently, the bitcoin price is struggling to recover beyond its all-time high of $5,000 due to multiple factors, including uncertainty over the bitcoin industry in China and the possibility of SegWit2x hard fork, the report said.
While the global bitcoin exchange market has almost fully recovered from the Chinese government’s nationwide ban on bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchanges, there still is uncertainty surrounding the imposition of harsh regulations and restrictions on the Chinese bitcoin mining industry.
