On Tuesday, a BTC whale moved $349.68 million worth of the cryptocurrency off of the Bitfinex exchange, a step that is associated with long-term holding.
Meanwhile, increased activity on the BTC blockchain indicates fresh buying demand in the current quarter, as per Glassnode, an on-chain analytics firm.
Glassnode noted an increase in network activity in the first week of October.
“Active Entities, the count of individual participants on-chain each day, has grown 19% to this week, reaching around 291k active entities per day. This value is on par with counts from late 2020 at the beginning of the last bull run.”
An increase in active participants has historically correlated with “growing interest in the asset during early-stage bull markets,” as per Glassnode.
Cryptocurrency data expert Material Scientist said resistance at $60,000 resulted in asks outweighing bids within 20% of the price for the first time in August, which may give rise to a buying opportunity.
“It would provide a nice dip-buying opportunity on the path to” all-time high.”
