Bitcoin’s surge to $46.5k catapults Stacks and Bitbot higher

Bitcoin’s surge to $46.5k catapults Stacks and Bitbot higher

  • Stacks (STX) price rose more than 20% to hit highs of $1.87 as Bitcoin hit $46.5k.
  • Bitbot presale surpassed $480k and was eyeing the $500k milestone.
  • Here’s what Bitcoin’s big move suggests for Bitbot, the world’s first non-custodial Telegram trading bot.

The total crypto market cap rose more than 4% to above $1.8 trillion as Bitcoin price spiked past the $46k resistance level on Friday. As the “OG crypto” hit the paces once more, Stacks edged higher amid a double digit surge. Meanwhile, a new wave continued to swell in the shape of the viral presale of crypto token Bitbot.

Stacks (STX) soars as BTC rallies to $46.5k

A new injection of volatility on Thursday saw Bitcoin’s price surge past the $45k level to reach highs of $46,500 across major crypto exchanges. As the flagship crypto pushed higher to target its fifth straight green candle on the daily time frame, Stacks price spiked more than 20% to reach highs of $1.87.

While the gains for STX came as BTC rallied amid upcoming halving sentiment, there’s also been growing adoption across the Bitcoin Layer 2 space. Stacks has seen this via Stacking DAO, which has hit a new TVL milestone of over $35 million.

In an X post, the Stacks team says this is equivalent to having more than 20 million STX tokens unlocked, “ready to fuel the Stacks DeFi ecosystem.”

Analysts have opined that the $800 billion Bitcoin ecosystem is ripe for investors to explore and Stacks could be one of the big players in this quest. As a Bitcoin L2, Stacks enables smart contracts and decentralised apps to come to Bitcoin, leveraging the benchmark blockchain platform’s security.

If Bitcoin sees the anticipated upside, STX price could benefit from its catalysts to target a new peak beyond the $3.39 reached in December 2021.

Bitbot: Bitcoin’s rally cements BITBOT presale momentum

Bitbot is the first non-custodial trading app on Telegram. It’s a huge deal in the sector given recent incidents involving Unibot and Banana Gun – two of the trading bots to see massive traction following their launch.

Other than its MPC custody technology, which is backed by Knightsafe, Bitbot offers access to several institutional-grade tools and feature. While trading, users will have assets in the cold wallets – removing that immediate risk that custodial platforms run by holding onto users’ assets.
