All the latest cryptocurrency updates and expert analysis

The price of bitcoin surged past $50,000 op Donderdag, returning above the milestone for the first time in nearly three weeks.

Die kripto-geldeenheid has been trading within the $45,000-$50,000 price band since the start of December, after crashing from an all-time high of around $69,000 in November.

The overall crypto market mirrored bitcoin’s stagnation, with several other leading cryptocurrencies all shifting by less than 1 persent oor die laaste 24 ure.

The inertia saw Ethereum (ETH) remain above $4,000, while the overall crypto market fell by less than $10 miljard. Some of the biggest gains were seen by Polygon (MATIC), which came within $0.03 of its al-time high of $2.6.

The rally reinforced predictions by some analysts, who remain convinced that BTC is still within a long-term bull cycle. Pseudonymous analyst PlanB stood by his price prediction model that puts bitcoin on track to hit six figures within the next few months, before the market finally sees a sustained period of price correction.
