The bitcoin rate on Saturday, January 2, not only crossed the psychological milestone of $ 30,000, but also achieved more impressive results. The largest digital currency soared to $ 31,392 on selected marketplaces. Over the past 24 hours, the capitalization of BTC has increased by another 7%, and now it is just over $ 583.661 billion. Altcoins are also gaining in value today. Of the top ten, Ether (ETH) and Polkadot (DOT) achieved the best results, gaining more than 4% to $ 760 and $ 9.5, respectively. Cryptocurrency market capitalization in the first two days of 2021 rose to $ 814.7 billion. Many analysts predict that we are near peak values, after which a correction is inevitable. At the end of last year, Vijay Iyar, representing the Luno crypto exchange, said that as soon as Bitcoin surpasses $ 30,000, the negative trend could become dominant. However, one should not expect a stormy fall in the value of BTC. According to the forecasts of the same expert, the bitcoin price correction will be no more than 15% of its maximum values.
