As bitcoin (BTC) when again reached the vital USD 10,000 barrier on Monday night (UTC time), the BTC chart is revealing indications of what might be a major breakout after a series of failed tries at moving higher.
At pixel time (05: 22 UTC), bitcoin was up by 5.6% over the past 24 hours, trading at a price of USD 10,093 Last night’s gains followed a week of strong bullish momentum for the number one digital asset, pressing the price up by more than 13% over the past 7 days.
Other coins from the top 10 are up by around 3% -7% in a day, while the total market capitalization increased by 5%, to nearly USD 286 billion.
The breakout noticeable in the bitcoin chart took place after the everyday price candle light (UTC time) closed above previous highs from May 7 and May 19, respectively. After a minor correction lower on Tuesday early morning, bitcoin is still above these highs, which might be seen as a sign of strength.

On the major crypto derivatives exchange BitMEX, the breakout caused a big amount of “buy liquidations” around 23: 00 PM UTC time the other day, with USD 146 million in buy liquidations seen in between 23: 00 and midnight.
A buy liquidation happens when traders who have actually wagered the market will fall ends up at a loss, and are required by the exchange to buy back bitcoin to cover their brief positions, often pressing the price higher in the procedure.
“Cryptocurrencies have weathered the panic-selling storm that took place in March and seem poised to benefit from a wide-range of growing institutional interest,” Edward Moya, senior market analyst at Oanda, informed Bloomberg. According to him, ethereum (ETH) and bitcoin cash (BCH) “seem to have bigger upside potential” also.
In addition to a flurry of activity in the derivatives side of the market, area trading on Coinbase also appears to have actually been impacted by the rising price again, with the exchange reporting that it experienced “connectivity issues” for about 45 minutes Monday night.
According to Coinbase’s status page, the occurrence included “increased latency” on the platform, which the exchange first began examining at 23: 14 UTC, right when the market was starting to pumphigher
