Cryptoasset Markets Experience Bullish Surge
Bitcoin's bullish momentum has spread to the broader digital currency market this week as all cryptoasset sectors reported gains, according to CoinDesk. The price of Bitcoin has been steadily rising over the last two weeks. It has made gains of around 15% over the last seven days alone. XEROF remarks that Bitcoin's current price movements reflect ongoing discussions surrounding Bitcoin spot ETFs. Expectations for spot ETFs have surged as the SEC refrained from appealing a court decision initially denying Grayscale Investments' application to transform its current Bitcoin trust into a spot Bitcoin ETF.
Ripple XRP Surpasses $0.550 Resistance to Reach $0.586
Ripple’s (XRP) price has moved above the $0.550 horizontal resistance area, reaching a high of $0.586 on October 24. Although this indicates a successful reclamation of the $0.550 price level, a weekly closing above this level has yet to be achieved. XEROF points out that when the RSI (Relative Strength Index) is above 50 and the trend is upward, there is bullish momentum. Conversely, if the reading falls below 50, it suggests the opposite.
South Korea Anticipates Over Six Million Cryptoasset Investors by 2024
Based on a survey by the Korea Financial Intelligence Unit (KoFIU), the number of cryptoasset investors in the nation will surpass six million in the first half of 2024, constituting more than 10% of the total population. Despite a global trading volume dip since March, South Korean cryptoasset exchanges remain robust, notes XEROF.
