All major cryptocurrencies are advancing this past trading week; Bitcoin has increased above the $29,000 level, and this situation also supports Theta’s price. “The bull cycle of bull cycles has started, as more and more players are starting to adopt towards Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies,” said Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe.
