Bitcoin extends gains to 44,700 before pulling back
On March 1, the global flagship cryptocurrency managed to add another 3.7% to the gains printed a day earlier. After rising first to $40,000, BTC then hit the $44,900 zone.
However, the Bitcoin price pulled back 3.35%—from $44,900 to the current $43,395 level on the Bitmex exchange.
The BTC price was also impacted by the announcement of CME Group to release options contracts on their Micro BTC and Micro ETH futures launched last year. The option is to roll out at the end of March, according to the press release.
