Bitcoin is trading at$11,910 at press time, with approximately a 1.16% loss on the day. Bicoin has broken $12,000 three times this week, but has lost traction at or above that price point. Nonetheless, some BTC bulls are saying that the current market conditions indicate only a temporary setback for its inevitable surge beyond the previous all-time high. Serial VC investor Tim Draper commented:
“I thought there would be many more competitors at this point that were really relevant, but people have consolidated towards Bitcoin because it’s decentralized.”

The number two cryptocurrency, Ether, is down by around 4.37% at press time to trade at $211. Over the past seven days or so, ETH rose to its peak in the middle of the week on Tuesday before sinking back down all the way through Friday.
According to a price analysis by Rakesh Upadhyay, Ether is currently sitting around its uptrend line, which it has not failed to exceed since February. However, should ETH fall below this line, this will indicate that its ongoing uptrend is over.
