With a market capitalization of $390 billion at the time of this writing, the current Bitcoin price is $20,404. The 200-week moving average price level of $22,500 has to be reclaimed by Bitcoin for it to continue its upward trend.
The capitulation of Bitcoin miners reaches a new high. Last week, Bitcoin miners sold approximately 9000 BTC to pay their operating expenses. The movement from miner to exchange saw a significant increase. According to on-chain data provider Santiment, Bitcoin supply on the exchanges is at a 3.5-year low.
According to Santiment:
“The ratio of # Bitcoin’s supply continues to stay low at levels last seen in November, 2018. This is a good signal of limited future selloff risk. In the meantime, supply continues skyrocketing on to exchanges, indicating greater buying power”.
