Institutional appetite for Bitcoin
In a note to investors, Etoro cryptanalyst Simon Peters spoke about the recent price movements and volatility of Bitcoin (BTC). Peters said lower prices might be “on the cards” but the analyst doesn’t “think it would take long [as] The cat is out of his pocket with bitcoin. “
“This price move is a perfectly natural correction that occurs in any asset as soon as the market finds it a bit overbought,” Peters wrote. “And while the price is falling and at the time of writing is just over $ 31,000, the demand for Bitcoin isn’t that high.”
The Etoro cryptanalyst added:
The appetite among institutional investors continues to grow as investment trust Grayscale buys $ 600 million of the crypto asset in a single day this week. Blackrock, the world’s largest asset manager, announced that two of its funds will trade bitcoin derivatives in the future.
Onchain Analyst Says Bitcoin Miners May Have Dumped
On Friday, Cryptoquant CEO Ki-Young Ju announced that the recent sell-off may have been triggered by the sale of some mining pools. “This dump could have been started by BTC miners in F2pool,” tweeted the Cryptoquant manager.
The onchain researcher also shared diagrams of the action showing that the miner position index and miner are exchanging inflows. “I received these bearish warnings yesterday,” added Ki-Young Ju. “The Miners’ Position Index rose above 2.5, 569 people deposited BTC in a single block (10 minutes). [and] 78 miners deposited BTC in a single block (10 minutes). “
Nobody really knows what will happen from here in the land of crypto assets and the growing economy. A lot of Fears, Uncertainties, and Doubts (FUD) have been circulating over the past few weeks while crypto-assets like Bitcoin (BTC) have been bullish.
So in 1 month we had:
✅ Mnuchin regulatory fear
✅ Tether Fud
✅ Ledger Hack
✅ Mt.Gox Fud
✅ Yellen, Lagarde, dear horror
✅ Faketoshi nonsense
✅ Fraud and Spam Attacks
✅ Bitcoin software bug bullshit
Some would say it’s a bit too much of a coincidence. I am just saying.

There have been significant regulatory fears, uncertainties regarding the Biden administration, negative comments from Janet Yellen and Christine Lagarde, Mt Gox discussions, environmental debates over proof-of-work, controversy over Tether (USDT) and the recent hack of customer data. Despite all the FUD, cryptocurrency advocates still seem very optimistic about the future of crypto assets in 2021.
