Why cannot bitcoin gain a foothold?

Bitcoin is declining again. How deep it will plunge, let’s try to forecast. Last week bitcoin showed a good rise. Starting the week lower $7,000 it surged to $8,500 on Sunday.

The unsteady rise of bitcoin last week was caused by several reasons. First of all, such famous families as Soros, Rockefeller, and Rothschild plan to invest in bitcoin. Secondly, news on the legalization of bitcoin in the Muslim countries opened the market for a big number of investors. However, even those events could not support the cryptocurrency and on Monday bitcoin has fallen below $8,000.

However, do not be upset. According to the Tom Lee forecast, bitcoin is supposed to reach the level of $25,000 by the end of the year. So traders, be calm and hodl.
