BTC recovers after its price drop in May


Bitcoin has recovered after trading above $30000 in almost the entire month of June. By the start of the second quarter of the year, BTC price was at $65000, which marked a milestone for crypto.

New Bitcoin ATH expected before year-end?

The BTC rice shows it could overcome its resistance before the end of August, reaching $50000. The # 1 cryptocurrency on the market has overcome all capital losses, which could help it reach new all-time highs.

It is uncertain if the BTC price exceeds the barrier of $65000, but if it maintains its bullish streak, it may meet the goal. Regulations against cryptocurrencies have calmed down in Asia, and the outlook shows a new wave of crypto adoptions in Central America and Latin America.

At the beginning of August, Bitcoin started its bullish streak, and the market is expected to remain like this for a few weeks. The cryptocurrency adoption is increasing organically and not because of speculation, which increases the chances of cryptocurrencies reaching new peaks in value across the board.
