  • Bitcoin (BTC) Surged 3% in the past seven days.
  • Market uncertainty persists; traders eye a $43,290 breakout or $42,460 breakdown.

Bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency, has kept its investors on edge with a stagnant price movement in recent weeks. Currently, experiencing a modest surge of 0.33% in the last twenty-four hours and a 3.16% increase over the past seven days, it has slightly broken the tight trading range between $40,000 and $43,000, now trading at $43,147.48.

While ARKB leads in volume, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) has experienced a decline, hinting at a shifting landscape within the market.
