Bitcoin miner netflows hit monthly lows amid recovery campaign
The bitcoin (BTC) miner netflows volume has plummeted to -$75,270, marking the lowest point in the past month.
This decrease suggests miners are refraining from selling their BTC, demonstrating their belief in an impending bitcoin recovery as the broader crypto market slips into the green territory.
The development was highlighted by behavior analytics resource Santiment in a recent tweet. Data from the Santiment chart shows that miner outflows remained relatively stable following a massive decline observed in mid-March. The metric has continued to fluctuate since then.
The recent drop comes from a perceived recovery campaign in the crypto market. Notably, most crypto assets are in the green, with BTC and ether (ETH) respectively registering gains of up to 1.87% and 2.21% in the past 24 hours. The behavior of BTC miners, who hold a substantial market share, suggests an uptick in bullish sentiments.
The reluctance to sell their bitcoin amidst the market-wide recovery is triggered by anticipation of bullish movements in the coming weeks. In turn, the positive market sentiment and increased profitability for miners could provide a strong foundation for bitcoin’s upward trajectory.
Meanwhile, the BTC market is observing a dull period, with prices consolidating around the $27,000 region for several weeks. Technical analysis suggests that an imminent breakout could follow this consolidation.
However, investors remain cautious and uncertain of the asset’s trajectory due to the prevalent sideways movement. This sideways trend signifies a conflict between the bulls and the bears as each group battles to determine the next price direction.
Meanwhile, BTC is trading for $27,299 at the time of reporting, trading flat in the past week. Following a 1.31% decline on May 21, the asset is looking to register two consecutive intraday wins by today’s close. BTC needs to flip the $27,500 territory to support having a go at $28,000.
