Bitcoin is still clinging to $31,5k as strong support resistance and has been range bound for 61 days. That range between $29k-$42k has yet to be broken.
The majority of BTC price action over the last week was below $35k and the shortage of volatility is reminiscent of this time last year when bitcoin was $9,202. BTC is 245.8% since that figure despite a 51% drawdown over the last three months.
Although there’s been heavy speculation about an imminent sell-off from GBTC buyers as their shares unlock between July 17-19 there wasn’t anything to point to over the weekend that suggests bitcoin’s price was affected directly.
Although BTC’s price has been trending downward for over 90 days there’s still a lot of optimism and bullish sentiment from bitcoin bulls.
Billionaire tech entrepreneur and bitcoin bull, Michael Saylor, appears as bullish as ever and published this tweet on Sunday.
Don’t wait to buy #bitcoin, buy #bitcoin and wait.
