2016 Bitfinex Hacker verschieben BTC im Wert von über $623M zu unbekannten Wallet

Während der 14. April war ein großer Tag für die Krypto-Gemeinschaft dank Coinbase Auflistung Entwicklungen, der Tag sah auch Nachrichten von einem alten Hack den Kopf wieder aufstehen.

Die gestohlenen Bitcoins von 2016 transferiert wurden

Der Vorfall in Frage, die 2016 Bitfinex hack, machte Schlagzeilen heute, nachdem berichtet wurde, dass Hacker begonnen haben, die gestohlenen Kryptos zum ersten mal seit 30 November 2020.

Durch eine Reihe von Tweets hat Whale Alert, ein beliebter Blockchain-Tracker, aufgedeckt, wie die gestohlenen Bitcoins von 2016 in eine unbekannte Wallet transferiert wurden.

Die Münzen wurden in Stapeln, in einer Reihe von 63 Transaktionen, innerhalb der Spanne von einer Stunde bewegt. In der Tat, insgesamt 10,057 Bitcoins, etwa im Wert von rund $623 Millionen, wurden in einer Reihe von Transaktionen übertragen.

Vor der Bewegung vom Mittwoch waren im November letzten Jahres über 5.000 Bitcoins bewegt worden. Zu der Zeit, die weltweit größte Kryptowährung wurde versucht, schließlich brechen die $20,000-Marke.

Interessant ist aber auch das Timing der jüngsten Münzbewegung, die mit dem Handel der Aktien der Krypto-Börse Coinbase an der Nasdaq zusammenfällt.

Die Hacker stahlen insgesamt 119.756 Bitcoins von Bitfinex im August 2016

Die neueste Entwicklung wurde von vielen in der Gemeinschaft mit Ryan Gorman, Mitbegründer von Trade the Chain, ein Echtzeit-Daten-Service, bestätigt, dass die Anzahl der Bitcoins bewegt belief sich auf 10 Prozent der gesamten Münzen gestohlen von der 2016 hack.

Darüber hinaus haben einige Experten behauptet, dass durch die Bewegung kein kurzfristiges Risiko in Bezug auf den Bitcoin-Preis entsteht.

Adam Cochran, ein Partner bei Cinneamhain Ventures, tweetete ebenfalls in eine ähnliche Richtung. Er sagte,

„Die 2016 Bitfinex hack BTC sind einige der am meisten verfolgten & Blacklisted Fonds in der Welt. Kein Austausch wird sie verarbeiten. Sie können im Grunde nie ausbezahlt werden.“

He added,

„Dies ist nicht das erste Mal, dass der Wal sie während einer Marktrallye bewegt hat, um Panik zu verursachen und wahrscheinlich einen Short einzulösen.“

Zum Zeitpunkt des Schreibens war jedoch unklar, ob die unbekannte Brieftasche, die im Zentrum der oben genannten Bewegung steht, das endgültige Ziel dieser gestohlenen Kryptos sein wird.

Was die größte Kryptowährung der Welt betrifft, so stieg das 24-Stunden-Handelsvolumen von Bitcoin bei Redaktionsschluss um über 1,8 Prozent. Laut Adam Cochran könnte Bitcoin einem „wilden Ritt“ ausgesetzt sein, nachdem er auf aufkommende Trends in den japanischen und koreanischen Märkten hingewiesen hat.

Bitcoin (BTC) Bounces, Stays Afloat Above $50.000

  • O Bitcoin saltou para a área de suporte de $50.225.
  • A BTC está negociando dentro de um canal paralelo descendente.
  • Há uma resistência de curto prazo a $53.500.

O preço do Bitcoin (BTC) foi capaz de saltar e recuperar ligeiramente do mergulho que ocorreu em 25 de março.

A Bitcoin está atualmente sendo negociada logo abaixo da área de resistência de 53.600 dólares. Recuperar este nível seria um grande desenvolvimento em alta.

A Bitcoin salta no Suporte

A BTC vem se movendo para baixo desde 13 de março, quando atingiu o preço mais alto de todos os tempos de US$ 61.884. Em 25 de março, atingiu um mínimo local de $50.427.

A baixa foi feita um pouco acima do nível 0,618 do suporte de retração de fibras, a $50.250. Desde então, o BTC tem se movido para cima.

Apesar do ressalto, os indicadores técnicos no cronograma diário estão em baixa. Uma inversão de alta no MACD e/ou uma linha de RSI acima de 50 seria necessária para que a tendência fosse considerada de alta.

Embora ainda não esteja confirmado se a BTC acabará fazendo um mínimo, a mudança da maior alta de todos os tempos não parece nada impulsiva. Isto é ainda mais confirmado pela sobreposição de hoje com a alta de 16 de março.

Portanto, é muito improvável que este seja o início de um novo movimento descendente. No cenário mais plausível, a BTC está corrigindo em algum tipo de onda quatro ou sub-onda quatro, e eventualmente fará um novo preço alto de todos os tempos.

Movimento BTC de Curto Prazo

O gráfico de duas horas mostra que a BTC está negociando dentro de um canal paralelo descendente. Este é muitas vezes um movimento corretivo. Por causa disso, seria de se esperar uma fuga do canal. Isto também é apoiado pela divergência de alta tanto no RSI quanto no MACD.

Atualmente, o BTC está negociando bem no meio do canal. Recuperar a linha média também faria com que o RSI se movesse acima de 50 e o MACD se tornasse positivo.

Um olhar para o bate-papo de seis horas mostra uma divergência de alta similar no RSI. Embora o MACD não tenha gerado nenhuma divergência de alta, ele está próximo de dar um sinal de reversão de alta.

Além disso, a linha média do canal coincide com a área de resistência de 53.600 dólares. Recuperar este nível indicaria que a baixa já está provavelmente dentro e o BTC irá subir.

Conclusão

Embora não esteja claro se a BTC acabará por fazer um mínimo, a queda atual parece corretiva. Portanto, espera-se, eventualmente, um novo preço sempre alto.

Recuperar a área de resistência de 53.600 dólares iria longe, sugerindo que o movimento ascendente não parou.

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.

Messari analyst: Institutionalists have started to get into bitcoin in 2020

Institutional capital has started to enter bitcoin en masse in 2020, a trend highlighted by Messari analyst Ryan Watkins.

He presented data showing that for the first time in the history of the cryptosphere, BTC began to be seen as a macroeconomic asset. While in previous years bitcoin was mainly of interest to retail players, this year, for the first time, institutional demand for the instrument has increased.

Watkins emphasised that it had been a very challenging year. Global Bitcoin Loophole markets collapsed in March. In the history of the cryptosphere, the most tragic day was the so-called Black Thursday, March 12. On that day, BTC plummeted to its lowest level in 12 months.

However, in April, the cryptocurrency began to strengthen again. The key driver for its growth was the activation of the printing press in the US and the EU.

In May, halving (reducing miners‘ rewards) was an important development. In the same month, a major investor, Paul Tudor Jones, confirmed that he was holding some of his capital in bitcoin. According to the financier, BTC can be compared to gold, which is not subject to inflation.

This was followed by news of MicroStrategy and the Ruffer Investment fund entering the cryptosphere. Another major financier Stanley Druckenmiller has also admitted to owning bitcoin.

Ryan Utkins on Twitter dedicated a separate post to each month of 2020, listing key events in the history of BTC. He specifically focused on a review of Messari’s research on the role of institutional capital.

The researcher predicts that in 2021 big players will be more active in the largest digital currency, which will have a positive impact on its value.

As Bitcoin reaches US$23,800, Litecoin, Dogecoin and high capitalization altcoins recover

The increase of Bitcoin to US$23,800 triggered strong highs in high capitalization, such as Litecoin and Dogecoin.

Litecoin (LTC) and Dogecoin (DOGE) are recovering strongly as Bitcoin (BTC) struggles to stay above US$23,800. Many analysts say the increase in high capitalization altcoins is directly linked to the price of Bitcoin, and historical data shows that the two tend to move together when BTC goes through high and low cycles.

As the altcoins begin to show signs of a new momentum, traders are becoming even more confident in the strength of the BTC trend.

Throughout December, the altcoins stagnated against the Bitcoin Freedom, especially as BTC struggled to break out of the $18,000 to $19,400 range, but this occurred in a tormented low-volume environment.

At the time, the volume of the market for cryptomorphs was in decline, as Bitcoin continuously rejected $19,400. As such, most of the volume went to BTC and the altcoin market was temporarily deprived of trading activity.

Bitcoin’s decline above $20,000 rekindled interest in Litecoin and Dogecoin

Historically, after a great recovery of Bitcoin, the altcoins that existed from 2011 to 2014 tend to increase. These cryptomorphs include companies such as Litecoin, Dogecoin and XRP.

One of the main reasons behind this altcoin rally is volume. Traders like to pump altcoins, causing volume to increase in a short period and with great volatility.

Since these cryptomorphs have significant historical relevance, when a rally begins, its momentum usually lasts longer than other obscure and less capitalized altcoins.

Litecoin, for example, has risen more than 57% in the last 7 days. In the same period, Bitcoin increased 34%, despite exceeding US$23,800 in the main exchanges.

A positive trend that analysts have noticed is that the altcoins are not seeing extreme volatility as in 2017. A trader with a pseudonym called MoonOverlord said:

„One thing that never happened in this race was the panic of people dumping their $ALTS every time $BTC changed 5% in 2017. I swear to God you would look up, bang, alts would be -25% on a 4% BTC move, it was horrible. Tether and stablecoins really didn’t even exist, so you had to be either in the $btc or the $alts. ”

Are the fundamentals driving the current increase?

According to Qiao Wang, a quant trader and researcher at DeFi, Litecoin is not necessarily ‚digital silver‘ in the same way analysts see Bitcoin as ‚digital gold‘.

Since its release, the argument in favor of Litecoin was that it could act as silver if Bitcoin became 2.0 gold. Wang said:

„If you are new to the crypto world, you bought BTC and are wondering which crypto asset is silver for BTC gold. It’s not LTC. IT’S ETH. The other day, Paul Tudor Jones used an interesting analogy from the metal world to categorize crypto assets. There are precious cryptomites. And there are industrial crypts. BTC is precious. ETH is industrial. LTC is neither. ”

Litecoin has several strong fundamental factors that can make the market around it feel better. For example, Litecoin’s team is enabling MimbleWimble, a privacy solution initially designed for Bitcoin.

However, these key factors are not enough to feed a 57% rally in one week. The main reason behind the sharp rise of high capitalization altcoins is probably a volume move by high net worth investors and traders looking to make a quick buck after a Bitcoin rally.

Institutionerna „verkar ha missat“ på Bitcoins rally till en ny all-time high: rapport

Institutionella investerare verkar i allmänhet ha missat bitcoins rally till en ny all-time high över $ 24 000, eftersom medan privata investerare utnyttjade sina långa positioner, skar institutionerna sina och tog vinst.

Enligt en rapport som publicerades av OKEx Insight nådde öppet intresse ett nytt rekordhögt värde på 8,9 miljarder dollar under helgen, och OKEx ledde med 1,6 miljarder dollar i öppet intresse

På samma sätt såg BTCs eviga byten att deras marknadspris översteg indexpriset eftersom finansieringsräntorna nådde en ny höjd.

Enligt OKEx Insight indikerar överdrivna finansieringsnivåer ökad hävstång på marknaden, vilket innebär att detaljhandelsinvesterare som handlar på kryptovalutabörser utnyttjar sina långa positioner när BTC: s pris steg till sin nya rekordhöga nivå.

Med hänvisning till data från Chicago Mercantile Exchange, som slutade strax innan BTC flyttade förbi $ 20 000, noterade OKEx att öppet intresse „konsekvent minskade under de senaste tre rapporteringsperioderna“, vilket „fortsätter att visa att institutionella investerare tog vinst och att de till stor del missade det senaste rallyt. ”

Kapitalförvaltarnas långa positioner, tillägger rapporten, föll från 544 till 492 före rallyt, medan korta positioner ökade från m11 till 26

Leveraged fonds långa positioner minskade på liknande sätt från 4 365 till 3 946 medan short position minskade från 9 354 till 8 702.

OKEx Insight skriver att dessa positioner minskar och korta positioner ökar indikerar att kapitalförvaltare och hävstångsfonder „misslyckades med att förutse prisuppgången“ och felbedömde marknadens uppbrott, troligtvis att $ 20 000 motstånd skulle hålla.

Eftersom avvecklingsdatumet för kvartals futures och optioner kommer upp, förväntas mer volatilitet på marknaden eftersom ett stort antal utgångna optioner kan se att priset går mot „Max Pain“ -punkten, vilket är lösenpriset med det mest öppna kontraktet sätter och ringer.

OKEx-priset, skrev OKEx, är cirka 23 750 dollar, och en rörelse mot det skulle ”orsaka ekonomisk förlust för det största antalet optionshållare vid utgången.

De belangstelling van de detailhandel voor Bitcoin

Room To Grow: De belangstelling van de detailhandel voor Bitcoin op jaarbasis hoog, maar nog steeds ver onder het niveau van 2017

Het vergelijken van grafieken voor Bitcoin-trends tijdens de vorige stiermarkt in 2017 en de huidige toont een paar grimmige verschillen.

Drie jaar geleden koelden de Bitcoin-prijzen net af van een stijging naar een recordhoogte van 20.000 dollar. De altcoins moesten nog pieken, maar dit zou in de eerste week van januari komen.

Degenen die zich staande hielden en zich door Bitcoin Trader de brute tweejarige berenmarkt heen vochten, zullen het goed hebben gedaan. Maar velen die FOMO’d in cryptocurrencies in 2017, mogelijk het worden verbrand in het proces tijdens die harde en snelle selloff in het begin van 2018, lijken te zijn belangeloos dit keer rond.

Geen retailschommeling voor Bitcoin

Volgens Skew analytics, die gegevens van Google Trends neemt, is er tijdens deze Bitcoin-rally geen piek in de belangstelling van de retailmarkten geweest.

2017 vs 2020 – de interesse van de detailhandel is niet teruggekomen op pic.twitter.com/fnPHSYEbwr.

– skew (@skewdotcom) 27 december 2020

ICO’s waren in 2017 een grote drijfveer voor crypto-koorts, omdat er bijna dagelijks nieuwe projecten en blokkades verschenen. Het jaar daarop werden de meeste van hen door zwaarwichtige regelgeving vernietigd en stortte de altcoins in, waarvan vele zich nooit meer hebben hersteld.

Dat aspect is anders geweest in 2020 en de meeste cryptocurrencies, afgezien van de stalwarts en die met betrekking tot DeFi, zijn traag om te herstellen. Bitcoin heeft de markten gedomineerd en de kapitaalinstroom is niet afkomstig van detailhandelaren, maar van instellingen.

Analist Josh Rager denkt dat er niet veel aandacht van de detailhandel zal zijn totdat de prijzen veel hoger komen te liggen dan het huidige niveau;

„Persoonlijk denk ik niet dat de detailhandel aandacht zal schenken aan Bitcoin tot het volgende grote psychologische prijspunt van $50.000.“. Naast een vriend die bijna $20.000 vroeg – ik ken geen andere no-coiners die over Bitcoin praten. We zijn nog steeds ver van de top,“

Er is ook het idee dat veel detailhandelaren deze keer misschien meer geld vastzitten als gevolg van de economische gevolgen van de Covid-19-pandemie.

De volgende grafiek van Skew toont de Grayscale Bitcoin Trust als een voorbeeld van institutionele dominantie. Sinds dezelfde tijd vorig jaar is het institutioneel-grade fonds met ongeveer 450% gestegen in termen van beheerd vermogen, dat momenteel volgens de laatste tweet $16,3 miljard bedraagt.
Instellingen die ethiek kopen

Bitcoin is niet de enige vrucht, en grotere winsten kunnen mogelijk zijn met andere dominante digitale activa zoals Ethereum. Onderzoeker Ryan Watkins voorspelt dat er in 2021 grote institutionele belangstelling zal zijn voor ethereum.

Als u eenmaal accepteert dat Bitcoin waardevol kan zijn, opent het uw gedachten voor de mogelijkheid dat andere cryptoassets ook waardevol kunnen zijn.

Het is een veel eenvoudigere sprong van $BTC naar $ETH vanaf daar.

– Ryan Watkins (@RyanWatkins_) 27 december 2020

Bitcoin is de waardeketen en de bescherming tegen destructief economisch beleid en het drukken van geld, terwijl Ethereum een hele basislaag is voor een nieuw financieel landschap in DeFi en nu ook kansen biedt. Beide genereren op dit moment veel momentum en de grote jongens letten er op.

Bitcoin (BTC) sets new record above $ 28,000

Bitcoin (BTC) hit a new all-time high above $ 28,000 on Sunday, December 27. Total capitalization exceeds half a trillion dollars.

New record

The Bitcoin has once again reached a new record briefly exceeding $ 28 000 . According to trading view, the new high was recorded at 28,415 dollars around noon, an increase of almost 14% in the last 24 hours.

The latest move represents an increase in the price of Bitcoin Compass of nearly $ 5,000 in two days, and a 25% increase over the past week.

11 th world capitalization

At its peak, Bitcoin’s total capitalization reached $ 528 billion, or $ 68 billion more than Visa’s . The most famous cryptocurrency also exceeds the capitalizations of MasterCard , JP Morgan, LVMH, Coca-Cola or Samsung .

Thus, if we compare the capitalization of BTC to the largest market caps in the world, bitcoin would be placed in eleventh position just behind Berkshire Hathaway , the company of Warren Buffet.

Market capitalization

If BTC had stolen 10th place in the rankings from Berkshire Hathaway, it would surely have angered the famous financier, who called Bitcoin “rat poison”. He also told his shareholders in 2018 that cryptocurrency trading was „madness.“

Record then sudden fall

A sharp drop in price followed this new record. The price fell from 28,415 dollars to 26,592 dollars , a drop of more than 6% in less than 1 hour.

Bitcoin perd 1 000 dollars de son prix et passe à 18 000 dollars

Le prix du bitcoin a connu une chute brutale. Au moment où nous écrivons ces lignes, la monnaie a chuté d’environ 1 000 dollars au cours des 48 dernières heures, ce qui a fait baisser le prix de la première cryptocarte au monde par capitalisation boursière à environ 18 200 dollars. C’est environ cinq pour cent de moins qu’auparavant.

Bitcoin se dirige vers le caniveau

Il semble que l’espace cryptocourant soit attaqué de toutes parts, car il n’y a pas que les pièces de monnaie qui ont fait une mauvaise chute. D’autres monnaies comme l’Ethereum, le XRP de Ripple, le Chainlink et le Litecoin ont toutes chuté d’environ dix pour cent au cours des dernières 24 heures, ce qui a entraîné l’anéantissement de milliards de dollars en un jour ou deux.

Naturellement, la plus grande préoccupation de la plupart des commerçants ces derniers temps est le bitcoin et la baisse potentielle de ce dernier. Le bitcoin continuant à s’enfoncer dans la perdition, il est probable que d’autres pièces suivront. En outre, il est probable que cela empêchera le bitcoin d’atteindre la barre des 20 000 dollars que tant de gens attendaient probablement avant la fin de l’année.

Pour être juste, le prix du bitcoin a d’abord baissé de plus de 2 000 dollars après avoir atteint 19 000 dollars en novembre. La monnaie n’a pas pu faire face à la hausse soudaine qu’elle a connue et a subi une légère correction qui n’a pas duré très longtemps. Ce n’était qu’une question de temps avant que le bitcoin ne regagne ce qu’il avait perdu et même plus. Cette affaire est peut-être similaire, et le bitcoin bank remontera à 19 000 dollars plus tôt que ce que nous aurions pu prévoir.

Ray Youssef – PDG de Paxful, un échange de bitcoin en peer-to-peer (P2P) – a commenté dans une récente interview :

18.500 à 18.600 dollars est la ligne dans le sable qui déterminera le prochain mouvement de prix, le prix pouvant se situer entre 18.500 et 19.000 dollars. Si le prix s’effondre, alors nous risquons de descendre jusqu’à 14 000 à 17 000 dollars. Au contraire, 17 300 $ semble être la prochaine zone où les acheteurs pourront intervenir sur la courbe descendante si le prix baisse à la baisse. Il est difficile de prédire où cela va aller, mais je m’attends à un rebond rapide même si le prix atteint le fond.

Les choses pourraient-elles éventuellement se retourner ?

Ce sentiment semble être partagé par plusieurs analystes. Si le bitcoin est pour l’instant pris au piège du marasme, la monnaie devrait néanmoins connaître un comportement plus haussier dans les semaines à venir. Glassnode l’a expliqué dans une récente édition de sa lettre d’information :

Le risque de réserve du bitcoin [utilisé pour évaluer la confiance des détenteurs à long terme par rapport au prix du bitcoin] est encore faible, ce qui suggère que le marché haussier ne fait que commencer.

Cette baisse fait suite à des nouvelles positives, telles que l’achat par MicroStrategy de plus de 50 millions de dollars de bitcoin supplémentaire et l’engagement de lever environ 400 millions de dollars pour alimenter sa réserve de cryptographie croissante.
