Just make sure you’re managing your portfolio and take cash off the table once you’re overexposed.”
While bitcoin has been on the rise headed toward
all-time highs of USD 20,000, hopes are rising for Altseason, (many are
rallying towards Altcoin more so than bitcoin due to its positive feedback in
the crypto market.) since it has aligned with BTC in the bullish market.
