We at TheCoinRise are back with another daily crypto news roundup for December 21 with all the market sentiment, regulatory comments, collaborations, and disputes.
Bitcoin has been very bearish for the past few weeks, and it seems that this bearishness will continue when 2021 ends. There are several investors who believe that BTC might need a small miracle to break above $50k by the end of the year.
However, on the whole, the market has been in greens for the past 24 hours, with Bitcoin reaching $49k while other tokens also follow. One of the biggest gainers includes Terra (LUNA), which continues to make new all-time highs.
Furthermore, the fear and greed index indicates that investors are in a state of fear as the market, again and again, retests the resistance levels. In order to break into an uptrend, bitcoin needs to move above the $53k price level.
Considering the current volume and other related metrics, this forecast isn’t quite probable for Bitcoin. Notably, Cardano-powered community media launchpad Flickto has announced details on its IDO (Initial DEX Offering).
