Bitcoin regains $22,000 after whales buy the dip
Bitcoin has returned to trading at over $21,000 for the first time since December 2020. The biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization had a precipitous decline in June as investors sold to prevent more losses. The rise in selling pressure was ascribed to Bitcoin whales who hurried to purchase the drop in anticipation of further positive momentum.
Almost the weekend, Bitcoin outflows reached a record high of 30,000 BTC, equivalent to over $600 million. This was a portion of the roughly 64,000 BTC that have left cryptocurrency exchanges since June. The majority of these coins are said to have originated from Coinbase Pro, and this is apparently the largest Bitcoin transfer in the last 35 days. Other exchanges have also experienced substantial Bitcoin purchases by whales seeking to “make hay while the sun shined.”
During the reporting period, significant quantities of BTC were moved from cryptocurrency exchanges. This constancy in substantial Bitcoin outflows suggested that significant firms and investors were optimistic about the anticipated positive trend.
In the last twenty-four hours, the liquidity of Bitcoin has decreased by more than $70 million, signalling large buyouts by Bitcoin whales. This indicates that institutional and large-scale investors have a favourable opinion of Bitcoin. However, investor confidence in the retail trading of Bitcoin plummeted in tandem with the decline in Bitcoin’s price, as investors became more hesitant.
According to Ki Young Ju, CEO of the on-chain analytics company CryptoQuant, institutional trading might once again influence Bitcoin pricing and market sentiment.
Alone in the last week, it was claimed that 16 new whales had entered the Bitcoin network and purchased up to $100 million worth of Bitcoin, contributing to the surge in purchasing pressure and the price decline.
However, Bitcoin’s downward rise is not unique. Other cryptocurrencies had a similar fate, with Ethereum falling below the psychological $1,000 price threshold. The majority of charts were likewise coloured red throughout the week prior to beginning a little bullish momentum.
At the time of publication, however, the majority of coins displayed green and had resumed their ascent. Ethereum has recaptured $1,200, Bitcoin is back above $21,000, and BNB is much above $240. This is wonderful news for both small and big Bitcoin investors, as we await the performance of other cryptocurrencies in the near future.
