Why It Matters: Amsterdam-based trader Michaël van de Poppe noted that Bitcoin may not be able to end October above the $63,000 mark but the apex coin at $61,000 is “just as fine and close enough.”

Van de Poppe tweeted Sunday that despite so-called altcoins making moves “left and right,” the “real altseason isn’t even taking place.”

It is not yet altcoin season, as per the Blockchaincenter’s “Altcoin Season Index.”

Bitcoin is “ready to rally” after the pullback, as per a note by DecenTrader, a provider of cryptocurrency market intelligence.

The firm noted that BTC may only hit real resistance on its way up to the $100,000 levels. 

“On a technical, market cycle, and on-chain basis, we continue to believe that the next major area of difficulty for $BTC will not hit until we approach $85,000 – $90,000.”

DecenTrader attributed this to a moving average crossover event enveloping the 128-day and the 200-day metrics, which in the past has led to a “sustained” rally.

Meanwhile, the Bitcoin whitepaper turned 13 years old on Sunday. Bitcoin bull, investor, and CEO of MicroStrategy Incorporated Michael Saylor said the pseudonymous inventor of the coin Satoshi Nakamoto “started a fire in cyberspace” which is fed by the faithful.
