Market News: Bitcoin Price New All-Time High

Bitcoin and Major Coins

  • Bitcoin reached a new all-time high, touching $71,000. This milestone marks a significant moment in the digital currency’s history, reflecting a strong market trend.
  • Ether, following closely behind, returned to a price point of $4,000, demonstrating a sustained interest in major cryptocurrencies.
  • In the broader cryptocurrency market, Binance Coin (BNB) and Solana (SOL) also experienced notable price movements. BNB is trading at $520, while SOL reached $150.

Where are we heading?

Analyst Willy Woo suggests we have now entered a full-blown bull market phase, with real investors buying despite higher prices.

Possible Reasons for the Rally:

  • Increased investor optimism surrounding spot ETFs and the upcoming Bitcoin halving.
  • Liquidation of large short positions, further pushing prices upwards.
  • Rising open interest in crypto futures contracts, indicating heightened market activity.

Binance story continues

Everyone thought, including BitPinas that the Binance story ended with the local SEC not pursuing the banning of the exchange. We were all wrong.

  • The SEC Chairman Aquino said the matter will be addressed at some point. The delay is just because of the transition within the ranks of the SEC.
  • Meanwhile, two press releases from the SEC said the NTC has implemented its request to block MiTrade and OctaFX, two of the exchanges then-Commissioner Kelvin Lee said they intend to block off the Philippine crypto space.
