2021 has been a breakout year for the cryptocurrency market as a whole despite the year-end struggles that have kept the price of (BTC) pinned below $48,000, much to the chagrin of the cadre of folks who had been calling for a $100,000 BTC moonshot.

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that the past 24 hours have been a rollercoaster ride for the top cryptocurrency after a brief dip below $46,000 in the early trading hours on Dec. 30 was quickly bought up to push the BTC price back above $47,500 by midday.
