The Bitcoin turnaround   

April was an exceptionally good month for the crypto king. The BTC price witnessed a whopping 20 percent price increase on Apr. 2. That was followed by further price gains that eventually pushed the coin’s price above the $5,500 level.

The Tether-Bitfinex controversy was expected to the long-awaited rally, but it turned out to be merely a bump in the road. Bitcoin quickly rebounded with its price recently testing new highs. Considering that positive sentiment is taking over the market, Bitcoin reaching $6,000 seems to be a very achievable goal.
