Cryptocurrency analysts have described it as a “make or break” moment for the market, with the next few days being potentially crucial in determining its longer term trajectory.
The bounce back was spurred on by a succession of positive news in the space, including El Salvador officially declaring bitcoin legal tender, as well as more interest from leading banks and hedge funds.
