Let’s find out the reason behind it…

Rainbow Bitcoin Weekly 21.12.06

Last Saturday, the cryptocurrency market experienced another plunge from

the lowest near $57,000 to $42,000. The intensity of the callback is strong,

and the reasons behind the plunge may be multiple factors such as the

expectation of interest rate hikes (a massive increase on the short-term

interest rate), pessimistic expectations of stagflation, etc.

In addition, the continuous spread of new variants of the new coronavirus in

South Africa is certainly another one of the risk factors. As a result, risk assets

are currently undergoing a substantial callback. It is recommended to

carefully control the risks. After Bitcoin’s massive falling on price, there is a

wave of less powerful rebounds. However, the overall downward trend here

has not ended regardless of the call-back strength. Adding or holding more

positions is still risky.

Bitcoin is still in a turbulent trend at present, and the small-level tokens shall

select the turbulence direction in the last two days. At present, the short-term

rise is not likely happening. Therefore, it is recommended to carefully control

the investing positions and try to avoid investing in full positions.

What’s happening last week:

SBI, a financial magnet, is planning to release the first crypto asset funding in Japan.

Krafton, a Korean game developing company, has invested 5 billion Korean dollars (approximately $4,234,420.50)in NaverZ as they are moving forward to Metaverse development.

Google trends: The word “Web3.0”’s search volume has grown substantially in the USA.

The Indian Government is expecting to add cryptocurrencies into the tax law.

European Central Bank governor: “Bitcoin is a highly speculative asset.

The recap of the additional data analysis for last week is down below.

Number of on-chain Bitcoin Transactions

The number of on-chain Bitcoin transactions has slightly grown compared too

the week before. Last week’s number of transactions has reached 313

thousand which is the highest among the recent three months. The lowest

number of transactions last week has reached 223 thousand. The overall

trend is still rapidly growing upwards. The number of transactions has been

slowly increasing since February 2018.

The number of on-chain Bitcoin transactions symbolizes the core value and is

also being an important supporting factor of Bitcoin market price. Currently,

the Number of On-chain Bitcoin transactions is showing rapid growth in the

short term.

Hash rate of Bitcoin

The average hash rate of Bitcoin has significantly grown approximately 37

Ehash/s comparing the lowest before. The highest has reached 182.13

Ehash/s while the lowest has reached 145.5 Ehash/s.

The value of the Bitcoin hash rate among the whole network has been

doubled since the low point in June this year. Hash rate is considered as the

basis of Bitcoin since it directly affects the market price of Bitcoin. It is fair to

say that the hash rate is the core stone of Bitcoin’s long-term value.

Bitcoin Supply on Exchange Wallet

Last week’s reserved amount of Bitcoin upon each mainstream exchange has

been increased to a total of 1.307082 million BTC which is nearly 15,000 BTC

more compared to the week before. It appears to be a relatively high level of

increase recently and it has given decent pressure of selling off. The BTC

supply of exchange wallets has nearly maintained at the level of 6.2% which

has rarely shown any changes.

The supply of Bitcoin among exchange wallets is a vital index to monitor the

trajectory of Bitcoin’s market price. The net inflow foreshadows the large

pressure of selling off their Bitcoin while the net outflow indicates that the

investors are more likely to hold their Bitcoin.
