Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP had dropped at the beginning of this week but are currently showing an upward trend.At the time of writing this, according to coinmarketcap aggregation, Bitcoin price currently trades at $10,148, which represents a 1.45% increase in 24 hours. Some market experts believe that BTC will experience a bull run soon.
It is important to note that some events may propel Bitcoin to new highs. These events include;
- The launch of Bakkt Bitcoin futures trading platform which will take place on the 23rd of September 2019. The launch of Bakkt is highly expected to catalyze a Bitcoin bull run.
- SEC will be ruling on two ETF decisions in October. If both ETF applications are accepted, then Bitcoin trade will receive a significant boost and prices will go high.
- The ultimate date that’s awaited is the Bitcoin halving which will happen next year. The event which will reduce the supply of Bitcoin and consequentially cause a price hike is only 268 days away.
