Can Bitcoin Reclaim Record Highs?

Bitcoin prices surged 35% in April and are flirting with the psychologically important $10,000 level, an impressive rebound from a decline that saw the king of cryptocurrencies slump more than 60% from its December peak around $20,000.

Some cryptocurrency market observers believe bitcoin will eventually reclaim its record highs and that the alt-coin’s recent bear market was normal.

“Mati Greenspan, a senior analyst at eToro and a well-known bitcoin expert, told the Express in an interview that the correction of bitcoin from the $20,000 mark was expected, and he sees the bitcoin price surpassing its all-time high in the future with absolute certainty,” reports CCN.

Some bitcoin bulls believe the cryptocurrency can return to $20,000 or even move to $25,000 as soon as later this year.

Looking Ahead for Bitcoin Rally

“Several analysts over the past few months have stated that the correction of bitcoin from $20,000 to $6,000 is reminiscent of its slump in 2014, during a period in which bitcoin failed to recover for over 12 months following an initial 80 percent decline in value caused by the now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange Mt. Gox,” according to CCN.
