As we can see, Bitcoin is now just ~$ 450 Million away from taking on giant Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL). The search engine giant Google is clearly one among the world’s most valued companies and surpassing it will be a big win for decentralization enthusiasts.

Over the last month, Bitcoin has flipped some of the biggest organizations in the world including PayPal and Berkshire Hathaway. Bitcoin has more than doubled in size over the last month.

On-Chain Metrics for Bitcoin (BTC) Still Bullish, Next Target Alphabet??

The latest price rally in Bitcoin comes on the backdrop of strong on-chain developments happening recently. As per Skew Analytics, the Bitcoin futures volume has hit $100 billion for the first-ever time in history on Thursday, November 7.

Also, the total Bitcoin options open interest has crossed an all-time high above $10 billion. Skew Analytics mentions that as per the BTC options prices, the cryptocurrency holds some potential to surge past $100K levels by September 2021.

On the other hand, the Bitcoin 200 weekly-moving-average (WMA) is increasing very fast at the rate of around 10%. Currently, the 200 WMA for BTC stands at $8500. At this rate, $100K levels don’t look so far enough!
