Traders are hopeful that Bitcoin’s bounce from $29,000 to $40,000 and the strong rally seen in altcoins is a signal that the bull market has resumed.

Bitcoin (BTC) soared from $29,482.61 on July 21 to $40,000 today, its highest level since June 16. This sharp rebound shows a possible change in sentiment. 

The bulls received a boost on Sunday, following the news from an anonymous source within Amazon proclaiming that the company is planning to accept Bitcoin payments by the end of 2021 and is exploring the launch of its own cryptocurrency by 2022.

This news seems to have sent the bears scurrying to the exit, resulting in a short squeeze. Data from Bybt shows about $1.1 billion of liquidations in 24-hours on Monday, the most since May 18. The intensity of the squeeze was such that “$111,000,000 of shorts liquidated in 10 minutes” according to analyst William Clemente III.
