Bitcoin price found a strong buying interest after Tesla’s chief Elon Musk agreed to buy social media giant Twitter for USD 44bn. This deal is still subject to a shareholder vote, while some expect Musk will own the company in the coming days. In either case, BTC gained pace and was able to clear the USD 40,000 resistance. It is currently (04:54 UTC) inching higher above USD 40,500 and is up 3% in a day, and down less than 1% in a week.
Similarly, most major altcoins moved up. ETH was able to surpass USD 2,950 and is testing the USD 3,000 resistance level. XRP might gain pace if it settles above USD 0.70. ADA is struggling to recover above the USD 0.90 resistance zone.
