Bulls spar with bears  

As the rally is gradually losing its steam, GRZ Energy’s Anthony Grisanti suggests that investors should brace themselves for a minor pullback.

“Bitcoin has doubled in the last five months, so I would expect a bit of a pullback, and on the downside, there’s a very interesting gap there, from $6,870 to $6,425,” – Grisanti told CNBC’s r Seema Mody.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $8,011.62 after its price lost $300 in less than an hour. One trading earlier claimed that Bitcoin was severely oversold, which could result in another 80 percent drop.


Meanwhile, Fundstrat CEO Tom Lee, who’s also a regular CNBC contributor, extends his bullish bet. He recently suggested that we could soon experience a FOMO-driven rally. He seems confident that Bitcoin is on its way to retest its ATH.

Bitcoin is becoming scalable

Bob Iaccino, the co-founder of Path Trading Partners, is not sure who’s buying crypto, but he claims that the Lightning Network could serve as a major catalyst for the most recent price rally.

“I do believe I know part of the reason why, and that has to do with the inception and application of software called the Lightning Network,” he explained.    

He we went on explaining that the LN makes the adaptability of Bitcoin a lot easier.

It is worth noting that the LN poses a game-changing scaling solution, but some critics say that the network is far from being fully functional.
