Is Bitcoin making a comeback? It needs to be proven
Bitcoin was little changed on Thursday, ending around $19,400, but added more than 7% on Friday morning. So, in a period with relatively low liquidity, the BTCUSD has won back over two weeks of a slow slide down in one move.
Does this look like a reversal? For now, it is more like an attempt to make a pump in a low-liquid market. However, closing the week at current or higher levels would be a bullish sign, but it would be premature to turn bullish before.
The overall capitalisation of the crypto market is adding 5.7% as it has yet to keep up with the flagship. However, there is a local victory here as well – crossing the 1 trillion mark – which needs to be held at least until the end of the week before we can talk about a bullish victory.

Former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes suggested that if The Merge update is successful, Ethereum will reach the $3,000 mark this year. According to him, a sharp decline in the coin’s issuance rate would boost ETH’s growth.
