Australian altcoins rocket higher following Bitcoin price spike

Australian altcoins

In the wake of Bitcoin’s recent price surge, we examine whether the biggest Australian altcoins are moving in the same direction.

It all happened last Thursday, Bitcoin’s price spiked $1000 in less than an hour. Finally, cryptocurrency investors had something to cheer about in 2018.

The sudden surge, driven by incredible volumes, took Bitcoin above US$8000 for the first time since March.

The leading cryptocurrency has since experienced strong support just below US$8000 and traded as high as US$8400.

Technical analysts are now setting their sights on a breakout above US$9000.

While Bitcoin has stolen the headlines, astute investors could have made big gains over the past week by buying these 3 Australian altcoins:

Horizon State:
