A new listing on Upbit Global also sparked a 150% rally in the price of Stacks (STX) as it moved from $1.13 on Sunday to an intraday high of $2.85 on April before profit-taking dropped the price down to $2.20. Bitcoin gathers strength for its next run-upAccording to analysis from Jarvis Labs co-founder Ben Lilly, on-chain metrics indicate a solid base of support for Bitcoin’s price with the only headwinds coming as a result of volatility in funding rates “as soon as there is any sort of pump.” BTC/USDT 4-hour chart. Source: TradingViewDue to this reaction, Lilly sees a possible retest of the $54,000 level to “grind away some of the FOMO” still found at that level but he doesn’t see the price dropping any lower due to solid on-chain support at this level. Lilly said: “Either way, we are setting up for a strong later half for April and beyond especially with the Grayscale Effect kicking in around that time.”At the time of writing, BTC is trading at a price of $59,200 with the Bitcoin dominance rate at 55.7%.The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cointelegraph.com.
