Bitcoin (BTC) Price Today: Will The Bitcoin Bull Run Come?

Ever since the best Bitcoin bull run recorded in history (the 2017/2018 bull rally), the cryptocurrency market has been waiting eagerly for a similar event. Unfortunately, the greatest Bitcoin bull run was followed by a 15-month long cryptocurrency winter that cost BTC more than 80% of its value from its all-time high. This is why every minor rally counts. The latest Bitcoin rally isn’t as good as the 2017/2018 rally but it was significant because it took the price of BTC higher than the key $4,000. At the time of writing, BTC was trading at $4,021.89. This shows that it is correcting lower at 0.25% against the USD. The 24-hour trading volume is $8,902,053,544 and the total market capitalization is $70,767,801,756. The bull run will start soon but it’s not yet clear when.
