The price of Bitcoin has blasted off over the last 24 hours as a flurry of buying saw the asset’s price skyrocket up to $5,000. The spectacular move came off the back of no significant news being released in the crypto space, and a number of major trading positions were liquidated in the market as a result. It seems this move was driven purely by spot buying pressure entering the market and taking the price through key technical levels of resistance. The key levels breached include the $4,200 resistance that has held since the major sell-off in November last year and, more importantly, the 200-day moving average, which is around $4,700. “Today’s spike in Bitcoin’s price was caused by more The post Bitcoin breaks $5,000 on no news as half a billion dollars is liquidated on BitMEX appeared first on Coin

Bitcoin has been in a lull in recent months. The largest cryptocurrency's price kept declining throughout 2018, finally finding a bottom at roughly $3,200 last December. Since then, it's been a slow and shaky climb upwards. On Tuesday, however, the price of Bitcoin surged more than 15% in less than an hour. The price briefly surpassed $5,000 on some exchanges, but is now slowly declining and currently sits at $4680, according to CoinMarketCap. SEE ALSO: How much do you know about blockchain, cryptocurrency, and Bitcoin?Bitcoin's price is known to be volatile, but this surge is notable as Bitcoin hasn't come close to $5,000 since November 2018.
