Crypto Predictions: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) And XRP After The Halving
There are various optimistic predictions after the Bitcoin halving, and one of them suggests that Bitcoin could be hitting $50k by the end of 2020 due to two main reasons.
Other bullish long-term predictions are claiming that BTC is set to hit $100k by 2021 and even $1 million in the next decade.
Now, Nik Patel, crypto analyst and author of An Altcoin Trader’s Handbook updates his outlook on Bitcoin, ETH, and XRP.
The $9,500 is a crucial level for Bitcoin
Patel said that Bitcoin is facing a crucial moment at the $9,500 level, if the king coin will be able to hold above this line, he believes that $10,550 is on the horizon. If not, he believes that the bears will be able to come back.
At the moment of writing this article, BTC is trading in the red and the most important coin in the crypto market is priced at $9,467.02.
He said that ” this is why 9450-9500 is going to be super important post-halving…”
Patel continued and explained, “There will be a lot of sell pressure coming in from everyone who’s been shafted after longing the breakout [and] retest. Overcome that, and I think 10550 and higher is on the cards.”
Important levels to watch out for ETH and XRP
Regarding Ethereum, Patel said that ETH needs to stay above the $195 level. If it can, he sees a lot of upsides ahead.
He said that “If it breaks below that number, he believes a big drop to $156 is “very possible.”
He continued and explained that if ETH pushes back above this level, we should look for a higher-high to form, and the market will become bullish.
At the moment of writing this article, ETH is trading in the green, and the coin is priced at $200.82.
“Such a move would also take us above the important pivot at $228, which would likely lead to a swift retest of the high at $290,” he said.
