However, since the earlier hours of today, Bitcoin has retaken its upwards trend and now it seems to have gained hold over $8,000 after quickly breaking over $8,300.

Crypto Twitter has been greeting the new trading range of Bitcoin with most posters welcoming the good news after a long, but apparently gone, bear market. 

Optimism is currently rife among traders, given the parabollic trajectory of price growth that has shed most forecasts into pieces over the past few weeks. Some are even aiming for $10,000 as a short term goal:
