An Uptick in Mainstream Coverage
Bitcoin trending on Twitter comes as the asset has seen an increase in coverage by mainstream media outlets.
Financial news outlets such as Fortune, Bloomberg, MarketWatch, CNBC, and Kitco have heavily covered the asset in the past 24 hours. The asset, though, has not yet seen any features on television as it did throughout 2017’s parabolic bull run and the 2018 bear market.
Mainstream Investors Are Talking About BTC
Through all this, mainstream investors and analysts, along with institutions, have begun to discuss the cryptocurrency once again.
As reported by NewsBTC previously, analysts at Citibank, a global banking giant, purportedly released a research note suggesting Bitcoin will surge to $20,000, then potentially to $120,000.
On an individual basis, macro analyst Lyn Alden, Real Vision CEO Raoul Pal, and prominent futures trader Adam Mancini have recently discussed BTC.
