What they are saying
Willy Woo, a former partner at Adaptive Capital, a respected Bitcoin analyst in the crypto-verse, gave key insights on what could make the Crypto bulls suffer from exhaustion, as it approaches the $17,000 mark.
Woo said, “The spike in coin buying should not be underestimated; it’s the largest spike in the 5-year chart below. Overall BTC remains bullish, however, the price needs to settle.
“That said, during this pump, the volume of coins scooped off exchanges by buyers was unprecedented. This price move was entirely organic, powered by significant buyer demand rather than the usual trader-driven action on derivative exchanges. I have not seen an organic pump at this scale in years.”
