Bitcoin Overview

Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency ever created and was first launched in 2009. Since then, many other cryptocurrencies have been launched, but Bitcoin has maintained its lead as the number one cryptocurrency by market cap. It currently has a market capitalization of $199,737,591,496 and is trading at $10,795.04. Bitcoin, unlike most other cryptos, has a small capped supply of 21 million coins, meaning that there can never be more than 21 million Bitcoins.

Apart from being created as a currency for transfer of value, it is also currently considered as a store of value like gold. There is an argument that Bitcoin is more of gold than gold in itself. In other words, it is a better store of value than gold, which has been around for many centuries. This is because Bitcoin being an electronic asset has some properties that make it more secure and portable than gold.

These include the fact that you can carry it anywhere without requiring any extra space like gold does, and it also cannot be faked, unlike gold. Mainstream investors have recently started to show interest in the asset with many people buying it, and this interest is expected to grow in the future.

Bitcoin Price Prediction: Analysis

Bitcoin has been quite stable since the year started, making major price moves just a fraction of the time. The most impressive price move was seen towards the end of July when Bitcoin rose to $10,000 again after staying below it for some time. This was marked with euphoria as Bitcoin continued to rise, reaching $12,329, the highest price for the year on August 17. The price has since dropped to lower levels, but a major nosedive started at the beginning of September, which brought the price down from $12,043 to $10,233 again within two days.

The following are current support and resistance levels as calculated by Walletinvestor.

  • Resistance Level (R3): 10990.30
  • Resistance Level (R2): 10896.80
  • Resistance Level (R1): 10834.20
  • Pivot Point: 10740.70
  • Support Level (S1): 10678.10
  • Support Level (S2): 10584.60
  • Support Level (S3): 10522.00

Developments

The cryptocurrency exchange, KuCoin, was hacked just about 48 hours ago. According to reports confirmed by the exchange, the hacker stole $150 million in Bitcoin and other Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies. This is not the first time an exchange has been hacked in this manner. Other top exchanges, including Binance, have had similar experiences.

However, the hack doesn’t seem to affect Bitcoin’s performance. Though it has been-range bound for some time now, the asset broke the 30-day moving average over the weekend in spite of the hack news. According to OKEx Insights’ Crypto Market Daily, Bitcoin has found support at $10,600 and is now targeting $11,000 again.
