The leading cryptocurrency crossed the previous resistance level of $12,000 over the past week, breaching the $13,000 level that appears to be the support level for the coin, arguing that it could soon head towards the $16,000 level if $14,000 is secured.
Today, Bitcoin traded above 13,850 for the first time since January 2018, the highest since then before falling back above $13,200, and it appears that it is heading towards recording its highest monthly close in the history of the cryptocurrency.
Some believe that Bitcoin It will swallow a lot of capital and will dominate the markets with broad growth in the next 18 months, due to the political and economic uncertainty, confirming that the global financial markets are currently witnessing intense selling and precious metals are witnessing a state of relative calm.
Bitcoin split from Wall Street

PayPal Changes Views of Bitcoin
