Buying the dip

The uptick came shortly after BTC’s epic 48 percent crash that left the crypto community aghast last Thursday.

This only happened during the global crypto frenzy in December 2017 when Bitcoin was on track to hit its current all-time high of $19,777.

The BTC price has so far skyrocketed by more than 40 percent over the last three days, which shows that the massive discount was attractive enough for many retail investors.
