Last Updated April 2, 2021, 00:016 GMT
At the time of this writing, Bitcoin’s price is up $106.58 (0.18%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved down. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 20 and 50 hour moving averages have been crossed, so that price is now turning above them. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.

Overheard on Twitter
Over on Twitter, here were the top tweets about Bitcoin:
- From BobLoukas:
Bitcoin is the ultimate bearer asset. It’s a self custody-full control, FU assetAs bearer asset, key holder OWNS IT. You entrust a corporation and gov regulator to protect it, in your name, to add 6% return on an asset already returning 1,000’s % already. Makes no sense.
- From valueterminal:
@NonGaap Think I’ve told the story here before but firm I worked at 8-9 years ago, the IT guy was mining Bitcoin, wouldn’t shut up about Bitcoin. He was such an expert we brought him into our morning meeting to explain it to us (we still didn’t get it). He is now… no longer an IT guy
- From beeforbacon1:
I would like to take another moment to say that without #bitcoin I would be so fucking depressed…now more than ever. The world is fucked and this is the only thing happening in the world right now. I would defend my keys with my life, or destroy them before handing them over.
