Opposing Theses

What we have seen regarding the price of Bitcoin

especially these past two days has led to contradictory opinions among analysts and enthusiasts.

On the one hand there are those who remain firm and claim that we are still in a bullish period with its respective corrections, so that after this stretch loaded with some volatility Bitcoin

will return to resume its path and record prices near and / or above USD $ 60,000 in the coming days.

On the other side we have those who feel that Bitcoin is possibly encountering resistance at around USD $50,000 per unit.

d, because many investors would be locking in their profits at this point and selling their assets in the expectation that a decline may be coming. These types of reactions are very common in this market, so the thesis is that the price could fluctuate around this barrier until a further decline comes.

In any case, in the face of these theses, the general consensus is that Bitcoin will become a highly valued asset going forward. However, as it is not clear what will happen in the coming days, the invitation is to trade with caution and take measures to avoid adverse results.
