At the time of the press, Bitcoin is trading within the low $ 6,700, apparently in the range range between $ 6,700 and the heavily contested resistance of $ 6,800, which technicians consider a key level for this resource.
While Bitcoin volatility may be bearish, traders have continued to back up assets with a substantial volume of around $ 4 billion a day, which shows that c & # 39; it is still interest in this budding field.

Crypto Market registers weekly earnings for the first time In Weeks
The cryptocurrency sector has had a hellish week, with the denial of the SEC and the revision of nine different encrypted ETF proposals in 24 hours. In addition, the Chinese government came into force, adopting multiple measures to curb the spread of cryptocurrencies within a few days. Such measures include the encryption of news on WeChat, the restrictions of Alipay on Bitcoin OTC accounts and China's move to block 124 exchanges of foreign cryptocurrencies via its intranet firewall.
On the other hand, however, this week had its fair share of positive news, including widespread sentimentality towards many industry leaders, who see that Bitcoin is starting to fall.
The market has clearly reflected this mix of bullish and bearish sentiment, with Bitcoin recording gains and losses throughout the week as traders on the edge of their seats.
But for the first time in weeks, if not months, the collective market capitalization of all encrypted assets has only increased on a weekly basis. Some analysts have pointed out that "FUD" is starting to have less effect on the market, which could be an obvious sign that bears have finally bitten the dust.
