Bitcoin, the flagship cryptocurrency, performed admirably in April 2023. Bitcoin has shown a positive trend every month, with prices constantly climbing over the last month. 

On a daily level, though, Bitcoin has seen some swings, with frequent falls and rebounds. 

Despite the volatility, Bitcoin’s overall performance in April 2023 was favorable. Reasons like rising institutional interest, expanding mainstream use, and positive market sentiment drove its success.

Cryptocurrency markets saw positive trading on Tuesday, with Bitcoin (BTC) experiencing a 6.20% increase to reach $30,000. While Ethereum (ETH) surpassed the $1,900 level. 

BTC also showed a significant rise in trading volume, reaching approximately $12.43 billion in the last 24 hours. This represents a 30.14% increase during that period.

On April 12, a significant event will occur in the history of blockchain. Ethereum investors will finally withdraw approximately $31 billion worth of ETH that was accumulated since the end of 2020.

This price surge is attributed to the change of the DOGE avatar to the new Twitter logo. Elon Musk, CEO of Twitter, initiated this, which occurred around 10:55 pm IST on April 3, 2023.

What Are Cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual currencies that use cryptography for security and operate on a decentralized network. No central authority, such as a government or financial institution can regulate them. These coins are completely based on blockchain technology. 

Cryptocurrencies are created through mining. Supercomputers solve complex mathematical problems to validate and record transactions on the blockchain. Once mined, investors can store cryptocurrencies in digital wallets. They can use these coins for various purposes, such as online transactions, investment, and as a medium of exchange.
