Bitcoin and Ether “relentlessly up”
In step with various similar moves in recent weeks, Bitcoin not only reversed its previous short-term downtrend but eclipsed its previous record high of $68,564.
At the time of writing, the volatility was not done, as $69,000 came into view and with it the prospect of the psychologically significant $70,000 mark.
As Cointelegraph reported, that level was firmly on the radar of traders, who believed that any correction in the meantime would still end with fresh upside.
“Relentlessly up,” popular trader Pentoshi reacted.
