Last Friday, January 10, bitcoin dropped below $ 8,000 and on some trading floors tested the lows at $ 7,719. The last time, at about the same level, the first cryptocurrency was on January 7th. The biggest spurt this week occurred on Wednesday, when Bitcoin tested values above $ 8,300. Support returned on Friday evening, and already on Saturday night, January 11, BTC grew to $ 8029. Bitcoin's market capitalization now stands at just over $ 146,267 billion. The coin was able to strengthen due to increased support from institutional capital that entered the Bitcoin futures market. According to the Skew service, large players took advantage of the fall in BTC value and invested about $ 20 billion in bitcoin futures. Moreover, analysts note that trading volumes continue to add, so there is a high probability of a quick return of previously lost positions.
