Bitcoin, which charted a new all-time high of $68,530.34 on Tuesday, should hold the $66,000 level to avoid a “market-wide” correction and if it does $75,000 appears to be next for the apex coin, as per Michaël van de Poppe, a cryptocurrency trader.

The lack of supply has been a major driver of BTC’s recent surge but if a price takes a downturn it could touch $56,000, said Jonas Luethy, a sales trader at the United Kingdom-based digital asset broker GlobalBlock.

Luethy noted that ETH too touched an all-time high of $4,842 and is nearing an important psychological level of $5,000 where it is likely to see “strong resistance.”

“The reason attributed to this strong price action is also a lack of supply, as Ethereum is being burned at a faster rate than it is produced,” wrote Luethy in an emailed note.
