Why Bitcoin Could Rise To $53K, Here Are The Risks Bulls Must Overcome

Bitcoin is moving sideways in lower timeframes as the crypto markets continue to run without a clear direction. The first cryptocurrency by market cap trades at $47,837 with a 1.2% loss in the daily chart. BTC’s price has been moving in a tight range during the week, unable to break above $48,500. Data from Santiment suggest an increase in the amount of BTC’s supply exchanging hands since the beginning of September. This suggests that investors could be taking more profits as Bitcoin tries to take previous highs contributing to the bears’ attempts to take over the market. As seen below, the BTC Token Circulation metric can be used to find a correlation between the price action and the amount of supply exchanging moving on the network. The firm said: Bitcoin now sits at $48.1k following a volatile couple of weeks to open September. Notably, the amount of unique tokens moving on the $BTC network, known as token circulation, is up big. Wednesday saw 187.91 unique coins moved, the most since July 29. For Analyst Justin Bennet, BTC’s price broke its upward trend during last week’s selloff. In that sense, the analyst found similarities between this event with May’s price action, when Bitcoin experience the first of several capitulation events.

On-Chain Data Shows Bitcoin Whales Hold Fort Despite Recent Dips

On-chain data shows Bitcoin whales haven’t budged despite the recent dips, and are rather continuing to accumulate more. Whales Continue To Accumulate More Bitcoin As pointed out by a CryptoQuant post, the Bitcoin sum coin age (SCA) indicator has been going up, showing long-term holders are continuing to accumulate. The SCA is a BTC metric that tells us about the distribution of long-term holders. It’s calculated by taking the product of the UTxO (Unspent Transaction Output) alive days and the UTxO value. The “age” of a coin is measured in “coin days.” When a certain amount of BTC remains unspent for a day, it accumulates some fraction of a “coin day.” One whole Bitcoin remaining unspent accumulates one coin day. Similarly, if half a coin remains unspent for a day, it picks up half (0.5) a coin day. With the help of the indicator, it becomes possible to tell what the sentiment among long-term holders is. A dip in the metric’s value would suggest that whales have started moving their coins, while an increase would imply they are continuing their accumulation. Now, here is a chart that highlights the trend of the SCA vs the BTC price: The Bitcoin SCA seems to be climbing straight up | Source: CryptoQuant As you can see in the above chart, the SCA had a minor dip late July, but since then the indicator has been going up in a straight line.
