Bitcoin Gold Defies Gravity, But Price Rally Looks Weak
Bitcoin gold is defying gravity today, but analysis suggests the upturn in prices may be ephemeral.
The cryptocurrency, which was created via a hard fork of bitcoin in mid-November, topped out above $500 levels soon after launch, but since then has gradually been losing weight as the most unloved of the bitcoin clones.
However, the world's seventh largest cryptocurrency by market value bounced up to $288.68 early this morning (as per UTC) before falling back to $240 levels, according to CoinMarketCap. Currently, BTG is holding well above the yesterday's low below $200 ($253 at press time), and has appreciated by 9 percent over 24 hours.
Even so, the price chart analysis indicates the strong bid tone seen today could be short-lived.
