As seen on the chart above, Bitcoin price has recovered from the bloody dip at $38,000. It looks poised to return to the $40,000 territory once more. However, this price level appears to be unstable ground. Specifically, Bitcoin has lost its $40,000 support many times over in the last couple of months.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin price is at $39,416.53, according to CoinGecko. It also slashed $52 billion from its market capitalization in the last 24 hours. In other news, a dormant address that held 429 bitcoins moved his or her asset after slumbering for more than 10 years.
