Bitcoin Consolidating at $34k is a Good Thing
With respect to the current Bitcoin price movement, the Co-founder and CEO of Gemini, Tyler Winklevoss, has explained that Bitcoin cooling off at $34k is a good thing. Such consolidation by BTC will provide the momentum necessary to retest $41k. His exact statement was as follows.
Bitcoin consolidating at 34k. This is good for a few reasons,
1) market cooling off a bit before next surge is not a bad thing, allows it to build more support at a higher baseline
2) if you missed BTC on the way up to 41k, you can get it now.
