Obviously the cryptoverse is showing intense excitement.
Even the creator of Litecoin, Charlie Lee is apparently getting ready for what is to come ...
Founder and partner at Morgan Creek Digital Assets, Anthony Pompliano, took to Twitter to ask to check on notorious crypto skeptic, Nouriel Roubini, because he hasn't been very active on Twitter the last few days.
Someone check on @nouriel.

Bitcoin seems to be coming back with a vengeance ever since he blocked most of Bitcoin Twitter.

Perhaps Nouriel decided to hide from the bulls?
Meanwhile, other Top 10 ranked cryptocurrencies like EOS, Ether, XRP, and Litecoin have recorded impressive gains between 6 to 9% each on a 24-hour basis, according to CoinMarketCap. Only BNb is showing a smaller gain of just over 2% on the day.
It's been an impressive day for Bitcoin, and whether BTC is able to test $9,000 will remain to be seen. Whether it happens today or this week, touching that $9K mark isn't far away!
Do you think BTC will continue upwards? Let us know in the poll below.
