Benzinga - Major cryptocurrencies slightly tumbled on Thursday evening following BitGo’s decision to halt the acquisition of rival Prime Trust.

Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE)-3.25%$0.066

What Happened: After rallying for two days on news of spot Bitcoin ETFs, the price of Bitcoin seems to have hit a standstill.

The recent filings of spot Bitcoin ETFs with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) by three major financial services companies, including BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, has given a boost of confidence to investors who were reeling following the SEC’s lawsuits against Binance and Coinbase earlier this month.

BitGo, a cryptocurrency custodian, has decided to withdraw its acquisition of Prime Trust, a rival firm. This comes after earlier negotiations had confirmed a tentative agreement for the purchase of Prime Trust for an undisclosed sum.

There was speculation at the time that Prime Trust was facing bankruptcy, hence the acquisition move by BitGo.

At the time of writing, the global crypto market capitalization stood at $1.17 trillion, a decrease of 1.12% over the last day.

The US stock market on Thursday saw a rise after a three-day losing streak as investors returned to buying tech stocks. The Nasdaq Composite index surged by 0.95%, and the S&P 500 climbed by 0.37%, both closing at nearly the highest points of the session.

Analyst Notes: "Crypto short-sellers did not want to bet against BlackRock's Bitcoin ETF filing, as that might be triggering optimism the SEC might finally be ready to grant an ETF approval, " said Edward Moya, Senior Market Analyst at OANDA.

He added, "Bitcoin momentum could make a run towards the mid-$30,000 region, but if the central banks globally remain hawkish, that could kill risk appetite. ​ "

According to crypto analyst Michael Van de Poppe, the recent surge in Bitcoin price is likely the first true impulse in this cycle. The 200-Week Moving Average (MA) and Exponential Moving Average (EMA) are providing strong support and a significant bounce is observed, coupled with growing institutional interest. "I’m expecting [a] continuation towards $38,000-42,000."

Pseudonymous analyst Dave the Wave predicts a promising future for Bitcoin. In a tweet, he suggests that Bitcoin’s value could potentially soar up to 420% from its current price.

Backing up his claim with data, Dave the Wave provides a chart projecting a Bitcoin price of $157,512 by the year 2025. The chart is based on his logarithmic growth curve, which estimates Bitcoin’s long-term highs and lows throughout its lifetime while disregarding short-term market volatility.
