Where Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Market goes
Josh Olszewicz, a trader and technical analyst, better known for his online pseudonym "BrotoshiMoku", said that Bitcoin risks falling to $ 2,500 if it cannot support positive impulses in the short term.
There is also a chance that the asset will potentially surpass the resistance levels and enter the region of $ 4,000.

But at the same time, it is also worth considering that the cost of Bitcoin has never dropped yet so fast.
