Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC Break Above $9,600 Puts $10,000 On The Table Pre-Halving

Bitcoin

  • Bitcoin saw a 4.5% price surge over the past 24 hours of trading as the cryptocurrency managed to reach as high as $9,600.
  • With the Bitcoin Halving just over 4-days away, there is is a potential for BTC to hit $10,000 before the halving.

Bitcoin surged by 4.5% today as the cryptocurrency managed to break the prior resistance at $9,090 and exploded higher to break above $9,500 and reach $9,600. The cryptocurrency was really struggling at $9,090 over the past few days but it was only a matter of ‘when’ this resistance would be broken with the Bitcoin Block halving just 4-days away now.

With this break of critical resistance, we can expect the price of Bitcoin to reach at least as high as $10,000 in the next 4-days before the block halving event occurs. This BTC Block halving will see the mining subsidy be reduced from 12.5 BTC per block to just 6.25 BTC per block.
