All eyes on the great triangle

BTC is currently inching closer to the resolution of the great descending triangle, and there is a great probability that it will break upwards given (this pattern has a high failure rate). Unlike December 2017, this is only the beginning of another bull run.

According to data provided by Coin Stats, the Bitcoin price is sitting at $10,328 with a tiny 0.66 percent dip over the last 24 hours. Its dominance has once again risen above the psychologically important 70 percent mark yet again.

Electrum, one of the most popular cryptocurrency wallets, has enabled support for Bitcoin’s Lightning Network. According to the announcement on Twitter, they are now ready to merge a separate branch with their master branch after working on the LN implementation for over a year.    

As reported by U.Today, Electrum’s founder Thomas Voegtlin spilled the beans about this feature back in July.

However, despite allowing faster payments and lower fees, Bitcoin's Layer 2 protocol does have its drawbacks. Recently, a serious security vulnerability has been detected on the network, which would allow bad actors to spend time money in the open channel without notifying the other user.
