Having broken a descending wedge pattern, Bitcoin surged up to an impressive 22% increase this week. The crypto giant reached its highest since June 15 this week. With a good surge in price, no doubt the bear was attacked but the bear sentiment remains strong prompting pro-traders to maintain an overall cautious outlook.
After enduring a long period in a descending curve, this week happens to be a promising one for Bitcoin as the flagship cryptocurrency finally got over both the 20 and 50 days MA and maintaining a well-shaped ascending price channel.
As the market sentiment seems to be switching towards ultra bullish, it is normal that traders are ‘FOMOING’ back into the market while expecting a breakout further towards the upside.
Amazon To Accept Bitcoin Payments This Year – Insider Claim
An ‘anonymous’ insider has made claims that the e-commerce giant Amazon is ‘definitely’ lining up Bitcoin payments.
It has been reported that an anonymous source within Amazon told London business newspaper City A.M. that the global marketplace giant is “looking to accept Bitcoin payments ‘by the end of the year’, and is investigating its own token for 2022”.
The insider claims that Amazon had earlier published vacancies for the cryptocurrency and blockchain lead which has got tongues wagging. This vacancy is believed to be a clear signal that the e-commerce giant is making strides towards integrating cryptocurrency transactions, as the job description also calls for someone who can
“leverage domain expertise in blockchain, distributed ledger, central bank digital currencies and cryptocurrency”.
According to the report, the insider who is believed to be a female executive stated that
“This isn’t just going through the motions to set up cryptocurrency payment solutions at some point in the future – this is a full-on, well-discussed, integral part of the future mechanism of how Amazon will work,”
If the above report is true, a behemoth company like Amazon will boost the global adoption of Bitcoin. This news is a great development for Bitcoin price as it is tipped to make massive moves towards the upside.

Crypto Market Outlook
BTC/USD is making a bold attempt to test new positions above the $40,000 handle. This week’s rally should not be seen as a true reversal of market sentiment. As Bitcoin price is moving higher on a short-term basis, expect to see different forecasts. We however advise that investors play it safe to avoid falling into the trap that FOMOing into unverified forecasts brings.
