  • Crypto expert makes bullish forecast on Bitcoin.
  • BTC/USD consolidates gains above $6,000.

While other experts are twice shy after a series of unrealized forecasts, a crypto analyst known as Galaxy with over 50,000 followers on Twitter claims that Bitcoin will grow strongly within the next 48 hours, extending the divergence with altcoins.  

“Probably less than 48 hours to buy altcoins at a discount. Green line breaks up and it’s showtime,” he wrote in his post. However, considering that the prediction was made a couple of days ago, the deadline may happen any minute.

While he supported his case with the chart analysis the community seemed  to remain sceptical. The comments under the post show that the vast majority of people took it as a joke, but would be happy to see it happening.

Meanwhile, BTC/USD stays marginally above the recently broken $6,000. The world’s largest digital asset reached an intraday high at $6,097 and retraced towards $6,030 by the time of writing. The psychological $6,000 serves as a good support at this stage, though a deeper draw down towards $5,800 should not be excluded.
