In other news, Bitcoin’s price is more likely to get back to $60,000 rather than going down below its current support level of $30,000 to a $20,000 target, according to analyst Mike McGlone, senior commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, Cointelegraph reported.
McGlone, in his latest Bitcoin analysis, compared Bitcoin’s price action with the “too cold” period of the 2018-2019 session, according to Cointelegraph.
In 2018, the BTC/USD exchange rate entered a long consolidation period in which it was at $4,000 after a crash of over 80 percent, Cointelegraph reported. Then a run-up in 2019 unexpectedly shot the price up as high as $14,000 at times.
McGlone has been known for bullish Bitcoin calls, according to Cointelegraph. He said the popular cryptocurrency could post a similarly surprising rally while aiming for $60,000.
Bitcoin’s price was $39,915.62 as of 7 p.m. Thursday (July 29).
Meanwhile, the European Investment Fund (EIF), which is responsible for small business financing, has invested $30 million in Fabric Ventures, a Luxembourg-based fund investing in digital assets and tokenization funds, Cointelegraph reported.
“The thing to note here is that there’s a recognition at European Commission level, that this area is one of geopolitical significance for the EU bloc,” said Richard Muirhead, managing partner of Fabric Ventures, per Cointelegraph. “On the one hand, you have the ‘wild west’ approach of North America, and, arguably, on the other is the surveillance state of the Chinese Communist Party.”
Fabric Ventures has pledged to invest in several software tokens, decentralized networks and applications under the “open web” and “open finance” categories, Cointelegraph reported.
Lastly, tokenized cat nonfungible tokens (NFTs) from actress Mila Kunis sold out in 35 minutes, Cointelegraph reported.
