The crypto market is currently abuzz with discussions on Bitcoin (BTC), as it teeters on the brink of reaching the $50,000 threshold. This is fueled by the fast-approaching halving as well as a “bullish divergence” observed over the past week, with Bitcoin breaking past the $48,000 mark.

Further echoing this challenge, IntoTheBlock highlighted a key obstacle Bitcoin faces on its path to $50,000 in the latest post. The firm identified a crucial resistance level, noting that over 800,000 addresses have purchased nearly 270,000 BTC at an average price of $48,491.
Currently, at a loss, these holders may exert selling pressure as Bitcoin approaches its break-even point, potentially impacting its ascent to the coveted $50,000 mark.
