Bitcoin: BTC to make ‘further gains’ as investors HOLD currency

Loading...

Bitcoin was swept up in the cryptocurrency chaos of 2021 alongside most other tokens, having fallen into a deep trough in July which sunk its value by more than half what it was a few months earlier. The coin has since embarked on a slow path to recovery, now middling out around $30,000. But experts are deliberating whether it will fall or fly from its new perch.

They evaluate confidence in the token via investor activity, which is either bullish or bearish.

One analyst, Alexandra Clark, a Sales Trader at UK-based digital asset broker GlobalBlock, believes she has encountered some encouraging movement.

She revealed interest in “long positions”, which indicate when investors are holding on to tokens, have reached an “all-time high”.

Investors are currently holding $165.7 million in Bitcoin.

These investors include Bitcoin “whales” who exert influence over the cryptocurrency market equipped with excessive capital.

Whales have crypto wallets worth $50 million in the currency, and they increased holdings between June and August.

Ms Clark said software firm MicroStrategy is among whales that have grown their Bitcoin portfolio and now holds more than 100,000, equalling roughly $3 billion.

On the other hand, “short” positions, which indicate when investors buy and sell currencies ahead of a perceived drop, have fallen.

“The recent spike in NFT activity has prompted a rise in transaction volume and active addresses on the Ethereum network, as well as a deflationary supply.

“Owing to NFT activity, Ethereum fees and the amount of ETH being burnt has increased significantly meaning, at times, more ETH is being burnt than issued.

“As a result, for the first time ever, Ethereum’s daily issuance fell below that of Bitcoin.

“After surpassing $3,400, a psychologically important level, Ethereum has one last resistance barrier at the $4,078 level, where over 1.5 million addresses purchased Ether before it rallies to a new all-time high.”
