Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) struggling to demonstrate strength at the $4,000 resistance level

In the last 24 hours, the Bitcoin price has slightly dropped from $3,860 to $3,770, struggling to demonstrate strength at the $4,000 resistance level.

Despite the lack of momentum on the price trend of Bitcoin, several crypto tokens in the likes of Binance Coin (BNB) and Enjin Coin (ENJ) have recorded 15 percent gains against the U.S. dollar and BTC.

In the upcoming days, traders generally foresee BTC rebounding to the high $3,000 region once again after its downside movement was stopped at the $3,700 mark.

The sentiment in the cryptocurrency industry has improved in recent weeks with reports suggesting that Starbucks is set to integrate Bitcoin payments in the next 18 months as a part of its deal with Bakkt.

“Interesting. But probably well worth it on the long term. The Starbucks angle was the most interesting thing about the Bakkt announcement. BTC needs more use cases and more retail adoption,” fintech analyst Richard Johnson said.

With a growing number of financial institutions committing to the cryptocurrency sector and more investors willing to engage in higher-risk trades, traders expect an upside movement in crypto markets in the upcoming days.
