Currently, the pioneer Crypto asset is valued at $850 billion, down by roughly $100 billion from its market cap on 3 September 2021. More than 41% of the total crypto market value is accounted for by the world’s largest digital currency.
A price rally typically follows when large wallet investors accumulate BTC and increase their holdings. Crypto analyst, Willy Woo said the cascading liquidations occurred as a result of a break up in a large Over-the-Counter (OTC) sale.
According to Alex Mashinsky, CEO of the Celsius Network, new buyers entering the market will push the asset past the $55,000 resistance level to reach new highs in 2021.
“Despite my projections, I expect to hit levels between $140,000 and $160,000. Due to this kind of flash crash and clean-up, we may have to wait until Q1 [first quarter] of next year. However, it will definitely rise,” Mashinsky said.
Long-term holders and short-term holders both hold a different proportion of the Bitcoin supply. The supply of BTC has been spent by over 16.8% over the last 5 months and has returned to profit at the recent $52.8k high price. The number of long-term holders now equals 79.5% of the bitcoin supply.
