Bitcoin (BTC) continues to surge by rising above $41K gaining back some ground after dropping the last few sessions. The overall crypto market experiences a stint of windfall.
Bitcoin (BTC) kicked off this week on a rather choppy note as it nosedived below the psychological level of $40,000. The flagship token had fallen below the $40K mark for the first time since last month. In the last week of March 2022, BTC peaked over $47K to reach a three month high, rising more than 4 per cent over a two hour period. However, the trend didn’t last for very long and soon after the entire cryptocurrency market began trading at red.

In a recent interview, Michael Bucella, a general partner at BlackTower, a leading institutional cryptocurrency investment firm, said that although the current market is a bit squally, but from an investor’s stand point, it is still in a growth mode.
