These thrift shops are considered to be early-adopters of this new technology, according to many leading industry experts.
The BTC/USD was unable to sustain its overnight highs but this sort of positive price-action was nonetheless welcomed by analysts. During the Asian-morning session trading was a little flat, which showed a lack of follow-through buying interest. The crypto-currency as of now is situated below the resistance zone of $345, while support in the short-term is around the $321 level.

Meanwhile, its stochastic oscillator continues to be found in the oversold zone, but now has a positive bias, suggesting of some buying interest. Additionally, its momentum indicator is showing its first signs of potential reversal, which is of course bullish symbol. It is imperative to state however, that the BTC/USD is currently trading below its daily moving averages and is forming lower-highs and lower-lows.
