Will additional investors sell Bitcoin?
In the current market crisis, altcoins are performing worse than Bitcoin, showing a reduced appetite for risk among crypto traders.
According to experts, an increase in the quantity of Bitcoins on exchanges indicates that there may be additional sales of the leading cryptocurrency.
“Over the past day, BTC’s price fell below $29,000, while ETH’s price fell below $2000. Alongside this decline, data suggested an increase in the Bitcoin supply on exchanges. Typically, investors transmit their Crypto holdings to exchanges with the goal of selling, according to Darshan Bathija, CEO and Co-Founder of Vauld.
Explaining the reason behind current market crash, he said, “The effects of US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s latest comments on adding pressure and taking ‘aggressive’ measures to address inflation were seen in the markets. Just a day after his comments, S&P 500 and Nasdaq indexes had dropped. As the traditional markets priced in the scenario, a risk-off sentiment took hold of the markets. Owing to BTC’s high correlation with the S&P, the cyryptomarkets slid down the charts, in lockstep with the equities markets.”
