After nearly 120 hours of consolidation in the mid-$9,000s, Bitcoin finally went for an aggressive push late yesterday and made it back into five-figures.

Many analysts had been already been pointing out that a prolonged stay in this consolidation phase, just under a key psychological barrier such as $10,000, usually signals that a breakout could be in the cards.

However, for the BTC-USD pair to build on this momentum and carry the rally forward, the bulls have to breach the resistance around $10,500.

As you probably remember, there are two recent examples when that same resistance area pushed the BTC price down from its local highs. Once in Oct 2019 when the price went as high as $10,585 before starting to retreat, and then again in Feb 2020, when the bulls managed to hit $10,550 before finally giving in.

Facebook’s Libra Will Play a Huge Role in the Future of Money, Top VC Believes

It’s just a matter of a few years — 10 years, to be precise — until we see money becoming mostly digital in the same way as books and music did, says Katie Haun, the general partner at venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz. Haun made that statement in a recent interview with Bloomberg where she also made a compelling case for Facebook’s Libra.

Apparently, she believes that the erstwhile-troubled digital currency is going to play a big role in the digital transformation of money. BeInCrypto recently reported that despite all the setbacks so far, Facebook is still betting big on Libra and taking various measures to shrug off the negative perceptions surrounding the project,
