BTC’s price is 80% of its ATH

According to Yassine Elmandjra, a crypto analyst BTC price is almost making a complete recovery, 692 days after the coin hit its ATH on December 17, 2017.

The analyst unveiled this news via a tweet noting,

“The price of bitcoin is now 80% of its all time high, the closest it has ever been to full recovery. Historically, it has taken 12 days on average to go from 80% recovery to full recovery.”

Despite the coin’s unrelenting bullish momentum, experts believe that traders might start cashing out to make profits. Per the experts, this will inevitably see the coin plunge once again. While most traders believe cashing out while BTC’s price is performing well is wise, Mike Novogratz, a renowned BTC proponent, and former hedge fund manager, advises against it.

Novogratz tweeted that,

“The hardest thing to do in a bull market is to sit.  My pal Paul Jones calls it the ‘pain of the gain’. This is a $BTC bull market. Your job is to sit on your hands and lock away your phone. The instinct to ring the cash register is high. Don’t. Just HODL right now. Free advice.”
