Bitcoin price bounce gives BNB, TON, VET and BGB a boost — Will it last?

After staying range bound for a large part of the week, Bitcoin (BTC) plummeted on April 12 and April 13. The fall resulted in cryptocurrency liquidations worth about $2.5 billion, with more long than short liquidations. The fall has dealt a severe blow to the short-term leveraged long positions that expected the rally to continue leading up to and after the Bitcoin halving.
