Bitcoin is getting off the leash!
Bitcoin is finally showing signs of recovery as its price has rallied over the last few days. The recent uptrend helped the coin lift its price above $28,000. At the time of writing, BTC was trading at $28,324.76 with a market capitalization of over $552 billion.
According to Santiment’s tweet, a major reason behind the uptrend was BTC’s hike in accumulation.

To be precise, the number of wallets holding at least 100 BTC has jumped to 15,970 after the largest single-day jump of 2023 on 14 October. Soon after the accumulation, the coin’s price spiked by more than 5%.
A look at BTC’s on-chain performance revealed that quite a few other factors were also helping the coin to move up. For instance, its exchange reserve was decreasing, meaning that it was not under selling pressure.
This happened while its transfer volume increased, which by and large is a positive signal. Bitcoin’s taker buy/sell ratio also turned green, suggesting that buying sentiment was dominant in the derivatives market.
BTC’s binary CDD was green too. This meant that long-term holders’ movements in the last 7 days were lower than average.
The weather was quick to change
Though Bitcoin’s price registered a promising rally, the scenario was quick to change. The king of cryptos’ price dropped by more than 1.2% over the last 24 hours. This was also accompanied by a drop in BTC’s trading volume, suggesting that investors were unwilling to trade the coin.
