Bitcoin BTC Price Holds Steady as Investors Look Toward Next FOMC Meeting
The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization was recently trading at about $29,500, up roughly 2.2% over the past 24 hours. BTC topped $30,000 at one point, near its earlier week highs but still well off its April peak close to $31,000. Still, investors seem to have forgotten Wednesday’s dramatic seesawing when the crypto dipped to around $27,200 amid a mass liquidation of short and long positions and separate unfounded rumors of bitcoin sales – by the U.S. government and of crypto from failed exchange Mt. Gox – before rebounding.
