Bitcoin’s Slow and Steady Rise

Bitcoin (BTC), the renowned digital gold, started off today’s session on a hopeful note. The BTC price has seen an increase of 0.5%, reaching $30,431. This mild surge has given bulls the impetus to push for the elusive $31K mark.

The trading volume of Bitcoin also saw an uptick, with a 10% increase within 24 hours, amounting to $17B. This led to its market cap soaring to $591B.

Looking at the BTC 1-day chart source: TradingView, one can observe that the relative strength indicator is inching closer to the overbought region – a clear indication that bulls are ruling the roost in Bitcoin’s network.

Ethereum and ADA Struggle
