Bitcoin Stuck in $9K High Range — Will it Hit $10,500 in Next Step?

On May 11, Bitcoin’s 3rd “halving” finally took place with the years expectation of crypto traders. Investors expect that Bitcoin will increase significantly in price in the next few weeks. However, as we mentioned in last week, if Bitcoin price can stay above $8,000, or even $9,500, it will be more probably skyrocket to new all-time high by the end of 2020.

Last Sunday, right the day before the halving, a sharp plunge in Bitcoin price. In generally, miners have a huge impact on the market trend, as they can provoke a collapse of BTC price by selling bitcoin in a crazy way. This was done to cover more electricity costs

On the contrary, after the halving, the market began to recover. And Bitcoin price broke above $9,500 again, and surged up to $9,929.

As for investments in Bitcoin, the statistics over the past four years showed that wallets with a balance of less than 0.01 BTC (less than $ 100) showed an increase. The number of such addresses jumped by 235% over the past four years and exceeded 10 million. But the number of large amount holders holding more than 1,000 BTC have grown by only 13% over four years.
