Why It Matters: BTC’s upwards moment has given rise to hopes that the apex coin has room to rise further.

A recent study comprised of 50 industry experts expect BTC to peak just above $80,000 this quarter and end the year around $71,400.

Amsterdam-based cryptocurrency trader Michaël van de Poppe said on Twitter that important levels for BTC are $68,000, $75,000, and $90,000.

Despite charting new highs, Bitcoin reserves continue to plummet, as per a note from CryptoQuant. 

The analytics platform said while they expect flows to increase around the all-time high levels, the reverse has happened.

Meanwhile, Ethereum is nearing all-time highs of its own, which, in turn,  is boosting bullishness on Twitter.
