A sudden flashpoint ignites for Bitcoin markets, propelling the cryptocurrency beyond $7,200 to top out closer to $7,800.

Bitcoin (BTC) surged above key resistance levels on April 23 as bulls gained control and propelled markets 10% higher.

The move caught many analysts and traders by surprise. Previously, the yearly starting range for Bitcoin at $7,200 was the level to recapture to improve bullish prospects.

Nonetheless, Bitcoin flipping its 50-day moving average resistance to support earlier in the week provided a hint that strength was returning to the cryptocurrency.

Attention remains on the block reward halving in May, something which could seriously impact price performance as the supply of new Bitcoins drops 50%.
