Bitcoin’s ($BTC) price breached $50,000 for the first time since September 7 marking the bullish start to “Uptober.” The top cryptocurrency rose by nearly 6% over the past 24-hours to break out of the four-week-long consolidation phase under $50K. September repeated history with a bearish month where the top cryptocurrency along with the rest of the market lost more than 20% of its valuation since the start of the month.
While $BTC price consolidated under $50K, the on-chain analysis indicated a strong bullish momentum. Market analyst Rekt Capital pointed that $BTC has continued to remain above the 21-Day EMA indicating bullish momentum. Thus as predicted October has started on a bullish note which might continue for the rest of this year.

The price rise was also anticipated as the Bitcoin supply on centralized exchanges fell to a new 30-month low which has brought down the chances of another sell-off significantly. Market pundits believe bitcoin could still touch $100K by the end of this year if any major sell-offs don’t ruin the bull run.
Bitcoin Eyes $55K
Bitcoin is currently trying to solidify its position above $50K and make it strong support before launching off the next key price barrier of $55,000. The last quarter could prove to be crucial for $BTC as the traditional markets brace for high inflation and downturn in the real-estate sector that could be triggered by China’s Evergrande failure.
Bitcoin could eye $52K-$59,5K support on-chain support zone with the next push and certainly reach $55K in no time. A breach above $55K could help the top cryptocurrency eye and restest its previous ATH above $64K. With its current move above $50K BTC market cap has reached over $900 billion higher than that of Facebook, which made it a butt of many jokes due to the recent shutdown of the Facebook network.
#Bitcoin just surpassed Facebook in market cap.
They are down today, literally.
