Bitcoin (BTC) experienced a robust rally at the start of the week, momentarily surpassing $28,500, before facing a sell-off that brought its price down. At the time of writing, it was trading at $27,432, erasing some of its earlier gains. Despite this setback, the nearly 6% rise since the start of September has broken the usual trend of declines in that month. Many market enthusiasts remain hopeful, eyeing the $30,000 resistance level as a potential future milestone for Bitcoin.
