Bitcoin is edging ever closer to the $10,000 mark as the weekend begins.
Bitcoin investors have many a reason to celebrate extra hard this weekend as the currency edges closers to the $10,000 today. If the coin manages to gain the extra $200 it needs to reach that mark, it will be an important milestone. However, let’s not underestimated the current figure in its own right and the current standing of bitcoin, around $9.825, as this is a 400 day high for the leading cryptocurrency.
It is highly likely to reach that before the end of the weekend, with this $10,000 figure will be reached as more and more investors jump on the bandwagon with a serious case of bitcoin FOMO. This will easily see the value hit that mark and beyond, thus signifying the complete end of the crypto winter if it hasn’t ended already.
It is interesting to note that back in March Bitmex CEO, Arthur Hayes, had cited bitcoin to reach this value by the end of 2019. However, with these latest price charges, it is looking like the world biggest cryptocurrency is well ahead of schedule. While, of course, nothing is guaranteed in the world of bitcoin, when Monday comes, don’t be surprised if we are at that all-important $10,000 mark.
