Bitcoin Cash Surges 13% as BCH Halving Approaches; Bitcoin Holds Steady at $70K

- Advertisement -
  • In anticipation of its halving event on April 4, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is surging. Bullish waves are anticipated to target a price of $540.
  • The whole cryptocurrency market is exhibiting conflicting trends, with Bitcoin continuing to rise and other significant tokens experiencing minor declines.

When Bitcoin Cash (BCH) gets closer to its April 4 halving event, there is a lot of excitement and conjecture in the cryptocurrency world. With less new BCH supply hitting the market, this crucial moment—which will cut the block reward in half, from 6.25 BCH to 3.125 BCH—is considered to be a major turning point that could affect the trajectory of BCH’s price.

Previously, as Bitcoin Cash approached that event, actions by miners had injected a degree of uncertainty into the market, affecting sentiment and potentially influencing future price trajectories, as previously reported by ETHNews.

BCH’s Bullish Outlook: Analysts Predict Surge

Anticipating this, BCH has had a 15% surge to $572.62 in the last 24 hours, indicating the bullish attitude of the market toward the possible effects of the halving. Furthermore, as traders wager on BCH’s future worth, the open interest in BCH futures has increased to $500 million from $213 million, indicating higher expectations for price volatility.

A recent tweet from cryptocurrency expert Clifton Fx suggested that BCH is about to break out of a Symmetrical Triangle pattern on the two-hour chart, potentially raising its price to $540, which has further fueled bullish predictions.

Mixed Signals in the Global Crypto Market

As BCH gets ready for this significant event, the overall state of the cryptocurrency industry is not so clear. Amidst expectations of a big option expiry that would rock the market, Bitcoin (BTC) has demonstrated steadiness, staying around the $70,000 mark.

Meanwhile, the BTC price has slightly moved 0.63% in the last 24 hours as of writing, marking a 5% gain over the previous week.

On the other hand, significant cryptocurrencies have experienced slight drops, such as Solana’s SOL, XRP, and BNB from BNB Chain; Internet Computer’s ICP has dropped by 6%, demonstrating the market’s varied dynamics.

In the midst of these swings, analysts like FxPro’s Alex Kuptsikevich advise caution and warn of potential market declines should Bitcoin drop below the $69,000 mark. This illustrates the intricate web of influences driving the cryptocurrency environment as it approaches momentous events.
