  • 10:23 CoinNess.com Analysis: BTC Needs More Strength To Show Uptrend

    According to the analysis of CoinNess.com, it's hard for BTC to continue its uptrend without a breakout of its price. Although BTC's price saw increase in the past month, the BTC's daily increase is very limited. Currently, the BTC's price increase is mainly caused by retail investors, rather than whales. Above the $3,600 mark, it can be considered to be caused by retail investors. This means the fluctuation is easy to be influenced by whales.
    Last month, from Feb 19 to Feb 21, monitored by the security firm PeckShield, the number of BTC whale transfers (greater than or equal to 1,000 BTC) and the transaction volume were increasing day by day. On Feb 20 (UTC+8), BTC witnessed a total of 26 whale transfers, an increase of 85.71% from the previous day. Feb 20 saw the total transaction volume of 65,419 BTC, an increase of 115.29% from the previous day. A total of 61 whale transfers occurred in the past three days, involving 141,462 BTC (approx. $559.90 million). The whale transfers occurred before the BTC's plunge, which cannot be considered as a coincidence.
    From the aspect of Fear & Greed Index, from March 7 to March 23, the index was above 50, which signifies the crypto market saw more greed. But in the past three days, the index was below 50, which means the crypto market saw more worries. The Fear & Greed Index shows that it is difficult to rebound in the short term.
    Now, besides the issue of the exchange-issued cryptocurrencies, there are no bullish news for BTC. Therefore, BTC needs a breakout.
    At press time, BTC marks $3,931.94 USDT (-1.35%) on Binance.
