The recovery in Bitcoins’ price from September 30, 2021, till last week scaled further on Monday to break the $57,000- mark for the first time in five months, showed data from CoinMarketCap.

The crypto king recovered before facing resistance at $52,000 and is now rising above $56,000 resistance.

“Bitcoin has touched this mark before and it will continue to do so in the future. That’s how cryptos work. What’s more important is the investors reacting in a mature way. They are less greedy and more logical in their approach. This means there’s no panic buying or selling and thus no volatile dips. Bitcoin’s bull-run 2021 has begun and it’ll end on a high note by the year-end. This is good for cryptos’ future,” Vikram R Singh, CEO at blockchain solutions company Antier Solutions told Financial Express Online.
Over the past week, while Bitcoin recorded a nearly 21 per cent price rise, Ethereum posted a 7.8 per cent jump. Other significant jumps in the top 10-crypto bracket were 12.5 per cent by XRP, 13.4 per cent by Polkadot, 215 per cent by Shiba Inu, 51 per cent by Fantom, 29 per cent by Mdex, etc. In contrast, Solana dropped by 10 per cent, Terra by 15 per cent, Avalanche by nearly 14 per cent, etc., at the time of filing this report based on CoinMarketCap data.
Bitcoin is likely to end 2021 at $66,284 and by December 2030 it is expected to go up to $4,287,591 but “the average is skewed by outliers – when we look at the median price prediction, the 2030 price forecast comes down to $470,000,” according to a survey of crypto experts published in July month by the UK-based personal finance platform Finder.
