On Monday, a major technical Bitcoin event took place which cut the Bitcoin miners’ reward per every new block down from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC.
Despite the overall bullish long-term sentiment after the ‘quantitative hardening’ of Bitcoin, the price of the major cryptocurrency remains at $8,762.
Some are even expecting a short term correction, but the CEO of Hedgeye Risk Management LLC, Keith McCullough, insists that Bitcoin charts are still showing bullish signals.
Is Bitcoin targeting $10,000 zone?
Crypto analysts are expecting Bitcoin to recover and break the $10,000 area. Some, however, believe that a major correction may soon occur as well.
Prominent analyst ‘Crypto Rand’ has shown his 217,100 followers a chart, on which he has marked a target for BTC in the $10,000 area. He tweets that Bitcoin’s main uptrend support is still strong.
The trader known as ‘Galaxy’ is also bullish and states that right now there are seven green candles in a row on a chart with a ‘Doji’ candle. The last time the same pattern emerged, he says, Bitcoin showed a rise of 160 percent.
BTC could experience a major increase, he expects.
