It Has Been 13 Years!!
It is important to remember that Bitcoin was launched on January 03, 2009 at the initial price of $0.0008. The big crypto has since rallied nearly ,374,999,900% to reach the ATH around $67,000.
It has not been easy for Bitcoin hodlers as there have been some frustrating corrections and discouraging bear markets along the way as some analysts predicted doom for the pioneer cryptocurrency.
On the upside, every dip provided an opportunity for buyers to get on board as BTC scaled new heights.
Yesterday October 31, 2021 marked exactly 13 years since the Bitcoin paper was released on October 31,2008, marking the beginning of what can be possibly referred to was the biggest financial disruption in history.
The 200-day SMA Support Crucial For Bitcoin Price
Bitcoin price has spelt out a descending parallel channel on the four-hour chart with bulls struggling to push above the upper boundary resistance.
At the time of writing, BTC price is trading at $60,849 after bouncing off immediate support embraced by the middle boundary of the prevailing chart pattern around $59,411.
If Bitcoin slips below this level, BTC could drop to tag the lower boundary of the descending channel around $56, 813, coinciding with the 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA).
This is a crucial support zone for Bitcoin bulls to defend because a drop below it could trigger massive sell orders which could see BTC/USD sink towards the $52,830 support wall.
BTC/USD Four-Hour Chart
On the upside, if BTC holds onto the support provided by the middle boundary at $59,411 and closes above it, bulls will be bolstered to attempt to break above the upper boundary of the governing chart pattern.
If this happens, Bitcoin could rally to retest the ATH above $67,000 and thereafter, may be BTC could make a go at $70,000 and possibly the $100,000 mark.Source
