BTC Sees No Big Price Change Entering April, Most Altcoins Record Fluctuation

Resilient at around $28,000 (roughly Rs. 23 lakh), Bitcoin has stepped into the month of April 2023 with not many flying colours. With a small loss of 0.34 percent, Bitcoin is trading at the price point of $27,707 (roughly Rs. 22.8 lakh). The world’s oldest cryptocurrency has been sitting tightly on this price mark for over a week now. While the value of BTC has risen substantially over the past week, experts predict it could be a while before Bitcoin crosses the threshold of $30,000 (roughly Rs. 24.7 lakh) amid the market volatility.

Ether managed to mint small gains, taking a different market route than Bitcoin for a change. The current price point of ETH stands at $1,771 (roughly Rs. 1.45 lakh) with a minor rise of 3.45 percent, showed the crypto price tracker by Gadgets 360 on Monday, April 3.
