Bitcoin price is holding strong at a higher point i.e. $6,700 while experts share the likeability of Bitcoin hitting a new high soon. Meanwhile, the market is enjoying the greens as IOTA, ICON, and VeChain are making significant gains while sharing multiple developments.
Bitcoin making good gains, experts say a new high is coming
Bitcoin is maintaining a strong stance for the past 3 days as it sticks above the $6,500 level. The world’s number one cryptocurrency has been trading at $6,720 at the time of writing.
If we take a look at the below chart, the opening price of Bitcoin was $6,707. During the day, it touched $6,740 point before sliding down but staying well above $6,700.
Though BTC Dominance is maintaining its stability at $53.3%, its daily trading volume has taken a hit and dropped down to $3.3 billion.
The bulls are going strong for now and according to experts, it is totally possible that Bitcoin will still hit a new high by the end of this year.
Tom Lee, the co-founder of Fundstrat Global Advisor, has always been favorable to Bitcoin and reaffirmed his faith in the leading cryptocurrency this time as well. He says Bitcoin will hit the record high of $20,000 by this year end.
Another addition to people still Bullish on Bitcoin is Bobby Lee, the co-founder, and CEO of Bitcoin exchange BTCC who is expecting it to hit $60,000. Lee’s Tweet reads:
“When #Bitcoin passes the USD $60,000 price level in the coming years, it‘ll reach a total circulation value of $1 Trillion. That will be a huge #milestone for $BTC, and it‘ll lead to more price stability, higher global liquidity, and even faster adoption worldwide.”
While another expert Anthony Pompliano says we just might have to wait till 2023 before Bitcoin hits a new high. But it is a possibility, Bitcoin will first drop to $3,000 before going on a bull rally.
Meanwhile, altcoins are rocking as well!
Bitcoin bulls have propelled the altcoins’ price forward as well. A small fraction of the crypto market is in the red including cryptos like Nano (NANO), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Augur (REP, and Waves (WAVES) among others.

Many people asked my thoughts on ICON, biggest Korea-based blockchain project.
What I’m optimistic about:
1. ICON team buying $5 mil worth of their own tokens to show confidence
2. Partnership with the country’s largest insurance firm.
