Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are enjoying a stable July, after a summer that has seen them fluctuate wildly.
In the first couple of days of the month, the price of most crypto has stayed fairly flat, even amid wildly divergent predictions of where they will trade in the future.
It follows a rally at the end of of June, when bitcoin rose in price from close to $30,000 on the weekend to above $36,000 on Wednesday.
Other leading cryptocurrencies saw a similar bounce, with Ethereum (ether) and dogecoin breaking above the crucial markers of $2,000 and $0.25 respectively.
Beyond brief peaks above $40,000 and dips below $30,000, the cryptocurrency has spent the entire month trading within a $10k price range.
The relative stability has divided crypto analysts over whether the market is in a bull or bear phase, meaning July’s movements will be under close scrutiny.
Still down by around a half from its peak in mid May, bitcoin has entered a “buy phase” for only the fifth time in its history, according to one indicator. The Puell Multiple graph, which charts mining profitability, entered the green zone this week for the first time since March 2020.
