Even Binance Hack Does Not Stop Bulls

8 May, 2019

In times gone by, any exchange breach or hack would have set shock-waves through the crypto community and sent markets plunging. It may be a sign of a maturing market but the aftermath of the Binance breach has not really been that bad for Bitcoin in the grand scheme of things.

Within an hour of the world’s largest exchange by trade volume announcing that it had been hacked to the tune of at least 7,000 BTC, the king of crypto plummeted as expected. However the drop has not been as severe as many had expected, at least in the short term.

Bitcoin had been trading above $5,900 for the best part of the past 24 hours. It had been poised to break $6,000 and push even higher, according to some analysts. When Binance posted the announcement BTC dumped around 3 percent back to $5,795 according to CMC. On other metrics websites such as Livecoinwatch it didn’t go below $5,800 and on TradingView.com with its ‘Bitfinex premium’ BTC did not fall below $6,000. The trading chart platform is still reporting a BTC price of almost $6,100.

At the time of writing Bitcoin had already started to recover and was back up to $5,890. Crypto traders and analysts are still very bullish in spite of the recent news and mainstream media FUD storm that is likely to follow.

If Bitcoin remains relatively unaffected by this negative development it will confirm the formation of a bull market and definite trend reversal. Alex Krüger, an economist and crypto analyst, added to this sentiment stating “In a bear market this would have easily have caused a deluge.”
