Bitcoin (BTC) has managed to hold on to its gains this week, indicating that traders are in no mood to book profits even as the price reaches near $70,000. The number of Bitcoin whales, unique addresses holding more than 1,000 Bitcoin, has risen to 2,104 as of March 7, suggesting they anticipate the uptrend to continue.
