Bitcoin’s price action

Hundreds of millions of dollars have been wiped off the slate due to liquidations, and the crypto market in general is a sea of red.

However, despite the flash crashes and the short-term bearishness, Bitcoin has still seen its value triple over the last six months, marked by a series of highs and lows, before a final all-time high of around $73,000 in March.

Now that Bitcoin is struggling around $67,000, we would all like to know—Where to from here?

Why the $70,000 Zone Is a Tough Nut to Crack?

March was mostly earmarked by Bitcoin’s consolidation, and its attempt to rebound and maintain its position above the $70,000 zone.

April on the other hand is the month of the incoming halving, and investors are unsure about how to feel about it.

According to recent insights from Michaël van de Poppe, a top analyst in the crypto space, there may be a few crucial points to keep an eye out for with Bitcoin.

In a tweet, the analyst opined that Bitcoin is “calmly consolidating”, and that the crucial levels to watch are the $67,000 (where Bitcoin currently is) and the $71,000 zone.

The analyst emphasized that a fall below the $67,000 zone might be the warning sign of a much larger crash, while a break above $71,700.

However, through it all, we might even see a new all-time high on Bitcoin before the halving hits.
