Daily Crypto Transactions On PayPal Hits New Milestone With Bitcoin Price Smashing Past $40k

Bitcoin had on what many will agree was a “bull run hiatus,” as the bear market took over for the past two months. But in July, the bears eventually got knocked off following a massive short liquidation that flushed the market.

Meanwhile, some analysts would argue that there was never a bear market. Anthony Pompliano is one of them and he’s even taken to Twitter to make this known.

“Bitcoin was never in a bear market. The critics got louder and new people got scared. The strong hands were accumulating heavily the last few weeks though. It is all right there in the on-chain metrics. Anyone can see the data. You just have to look…’
