Bitcoin price analysis

Bitcoin (BTC) is currently only $1,000 away from its price point at the start of its 7-day chart (Aug 11), however, BTC’s recovery today has kept the number one cryptocurrency above its $10,000 psychological price point. As reported by TSA last week, Bitcoin endured a short downturn, last week when its price dropped as low as $9,700.

Altcoin markets rally

After several weeks of lacklustre action, several altcoin markets are beginning to rally. Ethereum (ETH), the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency has seen a notable 7% gain and is trading at $199 at the time of writing.
