    Bitcoin breaking new highs in Q4 will ‘temporarily turn alts to dust’ — Analyst

    Abstract:Things will get exciting in quarter four, but not before a convincing floor is put in across crypto, analysts say this week.

      Things will get exciting in quarter four, but not before a convincing floor is put in across crypto, analysts say this week.

      Bitcoin (BTC) was busy losing its overnight gains on Sept. 27 as resistance continued to prove too much for bulls.

      Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD dropping to around $1,000 below overnight highs of $44,400 on Bitstamp on Sept. 27.

      The move constitutes a rejection at a “critical” zone to break, Cointelegraph contributor Michaël van de Poppe explained, with $42,000 now the key level to hold for a higher low.

      Bitcoin is acting in an increasingly narrow range, he summarized in his latest YouTube update.

      “Right now, were stuck,” he said, pointing to $47,000 as next should the $44,600 zone be reclaimed.

      On the downside, the zone between $38,000 and $40,000 remains valid for a bounce, while a complete failure of the range as support would then send BTC/USD toward its 2021 opening price, around $28,000.

      “If $42,000 is lost, I think we‘re going to have into the lows here and take the liquidity beneath the low before we’re going to have an actual reversal at this stage,” van de Poppe concluded about short-term price action.

      As Cointelegraph reported, volatility was broadly anticipated thanks to the imminent vote on the United States governments infrastructure bill, which could come as soon as Sept. 27.

      Combined with residual fears over Chinas latest “BAN” on crypto transactions, the bad-news narratives continued to hold major sway into the new week.

      Altseason expected to follow Bitcoin Q4 surge

      Altcoins mimicked Bitcoins lack of general direction on the day, with most of the top 10 cryptocurrencies flat over the past 24 hours.

      Only SOLana (SOL) managed to put in a convincing move, up 6.5% to $145 at the time of writing.

      Despite being uninspiring throughout September, altcoins are nonetheless due for a major resurgence, popular trader Pentoshi forecast.

      This, he said, should take a similar form in Q4 2021 as the same time last year — part of a general expectation that Bitcoin will shoot higher before the year is out.

      “Few understand. Q4 last year alts were at [all-time lows] vs BTC,” he reasoned.

      “The day it hit that bottom line which I posted months in advance is the day the market topped. Soon bitcoin will break out temporarily turning alts to dust which in turn will lead to new aths + bring new participants.”

      While September is tipped to end on an average note for the markets, October could bring about the start of the Bitcoin renaissance first, with a “worst case scenario” closing price of $63,000.

    Bitcoin Global Legalization: A survey of countries that accept and reject Bitcoin.

    Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 by the unknown founder popularly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, the march for its legalization as well as other cryptocurrencies had continued till this point. While some countries had officially legalized Bitcoin and accepts it as a legal tender, others rather reject and ban it. The rest tend to maintain a neutral approach of tolerating it without either banning nor legalizing it. The major reason for this has been that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lacks regulation and centralization and hence, beyond the control of the government. However, there is a general vision that given the popularity of Bitcoin itself and other cryptocurrencies, more countries will in no distant time give an official approval and legalization of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
