Bitcoin (BTC) once again shoots past $40,000, altcoins too make a strong move

Any break above the 200-day moving average will push BTC to $50,000 and higher.
The launch of Ethereum London hardfork has triggered a party in the altcoin space.

The world’s largest cryptocurrency Bitcoin (BTC) has been oscillating around $40,000 and has managed to move above this resistance once again. At press time, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading 6.73 percent up to a price of $40,609 with a market cap of $762 billion.

The recent Bitcoin price volatility around $40K levels has investors confused over the next move. As BTC sets up once again on its journey to the north, here are some of the key crucial levels to watch on the upside.

If the BTC price break’s past its trading range of $40,900-$41,300 levels, it should be heading to its next major resistance which is the 200-day moving average of $44,800. This is a critical level that Bitcoin (BTC) must reclaim if it has to set itself up for its next journey to $50,000 and further to its all-time high of $64,400.

Bitcoin’s Millionaire-Tier addresses i.e. the ones holding between 100-10,000 Bitcoins currently control 50 percent of the total Bitcoin supply. This shows the influence that BTC whales have over its price movements.

#Bitcoin addresses that hold 100 to 10,000 $BTC currently own 49.11% of the total #Bitcoin supply, and they’re still very near the #AllTimeHigh of 49.18% made just last week. This key group of whales is one of our most solid indicators to watch.

Another piece of information from on-chain data provider Glassnode notes that Bitcoin’s “entity-adjusted transaction volume has increased to $7.48 billion per day over the last 14-days. In particular, transactions over $1 million in size (approx. 25 $BTC) are on the rise. This represents 46.5 percent of the total transaction volume”.
