Bitcoin’s July 4 Rally Continues To Skyrocketbr>
Bitcoin continued its upward momentum today, sustaining the rally that began earlier this week and renewing some hope that the bottom of the seemingly endless spiral downward has ended.
At mid-morning, bitcoin stood at the $6,700 mark, up percentage points from yesterday, but continuing to move away from the upper $5,000 range that defined the floor of its most recent plunge. The rest of the market was an anomaly, heading downward from points to about four percent in some cases, although ether managed to eke out a percentage points gain.
Is this the top? Or has bitcoin gotten back on the horse and headed toward glory?
