Today's 12k Bitcoin Run Has Me Both A Little Nervous And Excited

in #hive-167922last month


Bitcoin is making in a run for 12k again. This could be a really good thing or a bad thing based on previous patterns I've witnessed in the past. It is good as 12k is the level of resistance that we need to break before we can start to see some major gains in crypto. But on the other hand it has me worried as alt coins are bleeding right now and if Bitcoin doesn't break 12k and drops then alts will drop on top of the drop they took today. I've seen this before where money went from alts to Bitcoin and then Bitcoin crashed and alts went down even more. One of these two scenarios is likely to happen soon so I'll be keeping an eye on the market.

Scenario 1: Bullish Bitcoin Soars Passed 12k

This is the one we all want to happen. In theory this should (should is the key word as anything can happen in crypto) cause a rebound in alts that then the market can climb together. 12k is the area of resistance for some time and it is where you need to watch before we can see any major gains in Bitcoin and hopefully the rest of the market. But as always even if Bitcoin breaks 12k that doesn't mean it will keep going up or that alts will follow so please only invest with money you can afford to lose.

Scenario 2: Bearish Alts As Bitcoin Rejects 12k

We don't want to see this happen and it is why I'm nervous with the price action right now. If Bitcoin rejects hard from 12k this can cause alts to drop more. Considering how red the market is that means a lot of losses for some alts. Hive might see new lows. I really don't want to see this happen but as it did happen before I would not be surprised. At this point go ad revenue on Leo :p. The only positive is the market is in better shape then it was before so maybe we won't see a big alt coin bleedout.

I'm not going to panic yet, and Bitcoin seems to have the strength to break 12k and start a good run in November. But until coins like Hive follow I'm not going to get excited either. It looks like we are close to something big happening one way or another so keep your eyes open.

You wrote down what we're all likely worried about if BTC doesn't surge. Looking at the year graph, it could go either way. It doesn't look like BTC would go below 10,300 or so...but man that would hit Alts hard.

The good thing about providing liquidity is as $BAL goes down, I get more BAL. It'll come back up eventually and providers will have more of the tokens that fall.

i am curious what will happen on this one indeed...if it rejects that will hurt and btc dominance is about at its ath again..

fingers crossed!

Isn't this the same as what happened last time?

Bitcoin leads the charge, all the alt coin bag holders get FOMO and pile into Bitcoin late?

The smart money then sells to them and then kickstarts the alt rally late with their profits?
