El 3 de enero de 2021, la capitalización de mercado acumulativa de todas las criptomonedas se disparó a la friolera de $ 913 mil millones, un nuevo récord histórico.

Por primera vez en casi tres años, la clase de activos criptográficos se acercó a una valoración de 1 billón de dólares o más. El récord anterior para la valoración total del mercado de criptomonedas se logró a principios de 2018.

Superando aproximadamente $ 830 mil millones en ese entonces, la clase de activos no tuvo la oportunidad de cruzar el índice de referencia antes de sufrir una corrección masiva entre 2018 y 2020. Sin embargo, un fuerte resurgimiento reciente ha allanado el camino para que el mercado de criptomonedas finalmente se dé cuenta de una valoración de $ 1 billón.

Bitcoin ahora es el noveno activo negociado más valioso del mundo

Según AssetDash, un sitio web que clasifica los activos negociables del mundo por capitalización de mercado, Bitcoin Storm es actualmente el noveno activo más valioso del mundo.

La criptomoneda entró recientemente en el top 10, superando a Berkshire Hathaway y Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) hace solo unos días. Con alrededor de $ 600 mil millones, Bitcoin está ahora a tiro de piedra de superar incluso a Tesla y Alibaba.

En particular, Berkshire Hathaway está dirigido por Warren Buffett, un famoso inversor que descartó Bitcoin y el mercado de las criptomonedas en varias ocasiones. En un caso, tan recientemente como en 2018, el magnate empresarial estadounidense llegó a llamar al activo digital ‚ veneno para ratas al cuadrado ‚.

Huge Bitcoin purchases on Coinbase pushed BTC

Huge Bitcoin purchases on Coinbase pushed BTC price past $33,000

Bitcoin price surpassed $33,000 as buyers on Coinbase aggressively hoarded BTC

Coinbase witnessed a huge spike in activity from buyers today as Bitcoin (BTC) touched $33,150. According to analysts, this trend is reminiscent of Ethereum Code the Bitcoin accumulation carried out by MicroStrategy, potentially backed by institutional buy orders. Thanks to this boost, BTC surpassed $33,000, reaching a new all-time high.

Buyers on Coinbase have caused Bitcoin to rally

Over the past 48 hours, Coinbase has been priced higher than Binance. At one point, the value of BTC on the exchange was $100 higher than on Binance.

When Bitcoin crossed the $30,000 mark, the premium peaked at $350. In other words, when Bitcoin hit $30,000 on Binance, it was $30,350 on Coinbase.

Prior to the rise, CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju warned that low outflows from Coinbase posed a risk to Bitcoin’s price. In his view, outflows should increase to allow BTC to find new momentum. Shortly before the rally, he explained:

„Coinbase has not seen significant outflows since the price reached $23,000, transferred tokens are down and the fund flow ratio is increasing for all exchanges. It is still possible that institutional investors will enter the scene soon, but we could face a correction if this continues.“

As Bitcoin hovered around $29,500, Coinbase’s outflows began to surge. As Ki pointed out, this could be due to over-the-counter (OTC) trades, which are typically bullish for BTC and exemplify the broader trend of depleting BTC reserves on exchanges:

„As we continue to climb, another 34,000 BTC have left the exchanges in the last few blocks very nonchalantly.“

High net worth buyers use the OTC market to buy or sell large amounts of Bitcoin. So when signs of OTC transactions emerged, Ki highlighted them as positive factors for BTC. Just two days after the peak of outflows, BTC surpassed $30,000, reaching a record high of $33,150. Prior to the recent milestone, Ki noted:

„$12,063 BTC just left #Coinbase. They arrived in multiple cold wallets. Possible OTC trades. Conquering $30,000 will be difficult, but institutions don’t care. They simply buy more.“

Why is BTC becoming so attractive?

According to Ashwath Balakrishnan, an analyst at Delphi Digital, Bitcoin has become more attractive after surpassing its previous all-time high.

When Bitcoin’s price was around $4,000, the risk of a significant decline was high, combined with the considerable uncertainty surrounding BTC’s medium-term outlook.

In contrast, when Bitcoin hit the $20,000 mark, the leading cryptocurrency became more attractive to investors. Balakrishnan explained:

„From a risk perspective, buying $BTC post-ATH is actually a better strategy than trying to hit the low. If you bought at $20,000 you made 50% with minimal friction. Buyers of the low at ~$4,000 made almost an 8x but their risk of losing everything was much higher.“

In the short term, many believe Bitcoin’s price could be pushed even higher by institutions that didn’t buy BTC in December due to potential accounting issues.
