Bitcoin holding up for over 3 months, breaching $14,000 twice
Bitcoin first broke above the $10,000 level on July 26. Since then, it has been holding above that mark and rising.
The period from July 26 to Nov. 4 makes up 100 days.
Twice recently, since early 2018, Bitcoin has broken above the $14,000 resistance. This occurred on Oct. 31 and Nov. 3: on Halloween and on the 12th anniversary of the the Bitcoin white paper release.
Institutional players' interest in BTC surges
Interest from financial institutions has been on the rise lately and is believed to be the major catalyst of the Bitcoin growth, as well as its record of holding above the $10,000 level for over three months.
As a reminder, such market giants as Nasdaq-traded Microstrategy obtained $425 mln worth of Bitcoin recently—on which they have now made larger profits than their revenue from business operations—and Square, spearheaded by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, acquired Bitcoin, allocating $50 mln to it.
