Bitcoin tried its hand at taking down the $28,000 mark but was quickly stopped in its tracks and has returned to $27,500.
Most altcoins are trading sideways, with ADA and SOL gaining a few percentages, while ETH and BNB have retraced slightly.
BTC Fails at $28K
Bitcoin initiated a massive leg up at the start of the week after a slow weekend that drove it from $27,000 to a multi-week peak at $28,600. As the community was anticipating the restart of the bull run, the cryptocurrency started losing value.
In a matter of a day, the asset lost just over a grand and went back below $27,500 until Thursday. That’s when another offensive arrived, and BTC soared to just over $28,000.
Nevertheless, it failed to continue upwards once again. The subsequent rejection pushed it back down by nearly a grand this time. As a result, bitcoin currently trades at around $27,500.
