BTC breaches $17,000 with a price gain of over 4% in 24 hours
Known as the largest cryptocurrency in the world in terms of market capitalization, Bitcoin (BTC) is constantly carrying forward its bullish price rally with the break of another crucial resistance. Bitcoin has successfully breached the $17,000 price mark. This breakout has occurred as a result of a price gain of more than 4 percent posted by the digital coin during the past 24 hours. Bitcoin’s price value is still trading up by 4.59 percent in the last 24 hours while holding at around $17,040, at the press time.
Reportedly, it is the first time since January 2018 that Bitcoin has been able to breach above this price level while registering a new 35-month high. Previously, it reached this level back in the year 2018 on the 7th of January. Bitcoin is expected to continue trading above this price level in the coming days. The blockchain monitoring tool Bitcoin Block Bot has claimed in a report that there is a probability of 26.10% that Bitcoin will see its price close above $17,000.

The coin seems to have recovered its entire loss by rebounding over 300 percent so far since the price crash. The year-to-date price gain is approximately 130 percent.
