    On-chain Observations For Bitcoin

    The Adjusted SOPR (aSOPR) indicator demonstrates that the bulk of on-chain spending has lost money during the May sell-off. As resistance, the aSOPR value of 1 was used. Last week, however, the SOPR surged significantly higher, owing to significant profit realization on the Bitcoin blockchain.

    According to another well-known researcher, Joseph Young, Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading at levels last seen in February 2021. The open interest in the futures market, on the other hand, is quite low. As a result, Young describes it as a “far healthier spot-driven rehabilitation” and thus remains optimistic. He wrote on Twitter:

    Bitcoin is where it was in February 2021. Yet, the futures market open interest is significantly lower. This is a much healthier spot-driven recovery.

    However, analyst have cautioned traders against basing their upside projections on prior market increases. For example, Bitcoin’s climb from $66 to $1,150 in 2013 does not imply that it will rise from $29,000 to $256,000 in 2021.

    Given how volatile Bitcoin has been over the previous three years, forecasting future price movements has proven challenging. If you’re betting on Bitcoin’s long-term future, any price level between $30,000 and $40,000 could be a decent place to start accumulating.Btc
