The price of Bitcoin (BTC) left its psychological barrier of USD 20,000 in the past, but what about now? We’re sailing in uncharted waters.
Bitcoin in Uncharted Waters After Breaking the Psychological Barrier

In fact, a crypto trader and Twitter analyst named Cheds told CoinTelegraph that nothing is written, but what happens next could make history.
„Do we fly at 30k? Or do we go back to 14k? One thing is for sure with this new break, $ BTC #Bitcoin will get many more eyes,“ emphasized the crypto trader.
Meanwhile, strategist Raoul Pal said that the leading crypto is eating up the world thanks to annualized returns of approximately 200%.
However, we should think about the future and, according to Alex Mashinsky, CEO of Celsius Network, Bitcoin Superstar review will test at least half a dozen levels between the $20K and $22K range. But, according to Decrypt, Mashinsky also sees a possibility of regression to a range between $14K and $16K.
