Bitcoin Price Breaks Through Key $6,000 Mark, McAfee Offers Help to Binance’s CZ
On May 8, Bitcoin got over the crucial $6,000 level of resistance. Analysts believe this will bring investors further gains by letting BTC rise even higher
On Wednesday, Bitcoin price finally overcame the key resistance mark at $6,000, as per CoinMarkerCap data.
In its recent article, Forbes reveals the opinions of several analysts who say that if Bitcoin can get fixed above $6,000, it may go on to rise further and bring higher gains to investors.
Bitcoin is giving a hope for further market rise: analysts
Forbes has spoken to several crypto analysts,
one of them is John Todaro from TradeBlock. This expert considers the $6,000
mark to be a key level for BTC. He says that despite the recent rebound of the
Bitcoin price due to the Tether-Bitfinex situation, Bitcoin has found resources
to pass this major point on charts.
“Just yesterday we saw bitcoin prices rebound quite quickly after it was revealed that $40 million in bitcoin was stolen from wallets belonging to Binance in an exchange attack.”
Todaro is positive that now Bitcoin price will
keep going forward.
The managing director of Digital Capital
Management, Tim Enneking, has mentioned the $6,000 level as a hard one to take.
However, he added, should Bitcoin overcome this major resistance point, it will
almost certainly continue appreciating.
Jeff Dorman, head of investment in Arca, has
also described the aforementioned resistance level as a key one, after passing
which Bitcoin may show fast and substantial gains.
Binance CZ’s decision may have pushed BTC price high
On May 8, the Internet and social media were boiling with discussions of another major event that took place, alas, a sad one. Binance exchange lost 7,000 BTC in a security breach attack, which is around $40 mln.
As an option to save the situation, the CEO, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), suggested miners conduct a rollback on Bitcoin network to recover the stolen funds. However, later on, CZ gave up on that idea. Probably held back by the strong negative response from the community, who did not want another Bitcoin chain split to occur.
Anyway, the fact that the Bitcoin chain remained intact may have helped BTC price to take the last step in passing the crucial resistance at $6,000.
McAfee steps in to offer CZ help
Also, on Wednesday, the well-known John McAfee tweeted that he is willing to offer his skills in the cybersecurity sphere to CZ so Binance can analyze the recent hackers’ attack and make sure it does not happen in the future. He also urged the head of the Russia-based Kaspersky Lab, Eugene Kaspersky, to join him on this.
Changpeng Zhao replied that he would contact McAfee in DM.
