- Bitcoin breaks out above $16,000 for the first time since 2018.
- The rest of the cryptocurrency market is expected to follow Bitcoin’s footsteps, extending the bull cycle.
Bitcoin has topped the critical $16,000 after the first attempt failed to make significant progress on Wednesday. The flagship cryptocurrency appears to be on steroids, with the price action having lifted above $16,100. The Relative Strength Index also supports the breakout after bouncing off support at the midline.

The upswing is expected to continue, especially with Bitcoin making a final leg up to its all-time high. Meanwhile, buyers must hold the price above $16,000 to have ample time for planning the next attack towards the coveted level at $20,000.
