Bitcoin Reclaims $11.5K, ETH Above $400: The Sushi Farming Tokens Skyrocket (Market Watch)

Following a few days of adverse price movements, most of the cryptocurrency market is recovering and is in the green today. Bitcoin is up to $11,500, Ethereum is trading above $400 for the first time since Tuesday. Even more impressive gains are evident from the lower-cap alts.

Bitcoin Back Above $11,500

The primary cryptocurrency saw its fair share of price dumps in the past few days. BTC even experienced quite volatile developments following an announcement from the US Federal Reserve regarding its new plans to target inflation averaging 2% over time. A sharp dip met a quick price pump, and BTC bottomed at $11,100.

However, the bulls didn’t allow any further declines and have continuously driven the price upwards. At the time of this writing, Bitcoin is hovering around the $11,500 mark. Should the asset embark on another increase, it needs to overcome the first resistance decisively at $11,650, followed by $11,800, and the psychological level of $12,000.

Alternatively, the first support lies at $11,300, while $11,150 and $11,000 are next in case BTC dips again.

I am a believer of the HODL philosophy because we are still in the nascent stage of blockchain technology. Although we are in a bear market now, my outlook on the adoption and growth of blockchain solutions remains unchanged. Blockchain transactions has been growing exponentially and demand for cryptocurrency like Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Ripple [XRP], Litecoin [LTC] and other Altcoins will only continue to grow exponentially in the next five to ten years.
