Less active Bitcoin addresses – crypto-analysis firm predicts pain for BTC

Santiment warns Bitcoin bulls in his recent On-Chain-analysis prior to the downward Outlook of the crypto-currency.

The crypto-focused analysis platform is leading a steep decline in the number of daily active addresses (DAA) in the Bitcoin network. The data show that there are now fewer Wallets, the Bitcoin daily to send or receive.

Santiment claims that the DAA is strongly correlated with the price action of the asset.

“For example, the DAA is grown throughout the first quarter of 2019 steadily, long before the market began to recover”, writes the Portal in the introductory note of the DAA.

And:

“The same is true for July 2019, as a decline in the DAA, a price decrease was preceded by”.

Bitcoins DAA and price divergence Chart of Santiment suggest a downward correction

The pattern suggests a repetition, in August 2020, so Santiment. The DAA values were two to ten percent long red beams – as prior to the crash in March 2020.

Santiment therefore expected in the coming sessions, a fractal Echo, suggesting declines on the Bitcoin market:

“This is a pretty big warning indicator that, if the DAA does not improve soon, until the end of August for a medium to large withdrawal can take place”

Withdraw Bitcoin?

The analysis of Santiment follows immediately, after Bitcoin (Ticker: BTCUSD) has crashed from its local High at over 12,000 $ to more than 8 percent. The Lack of an adequate buying sentiment in the vicinity of the above-mentioned levels has prompted day traders to sell their stocks.

The correction took place, also, to neutralize the excessively overbought Relative strength indicator Bitcoin.

The Bitcoin Chart of TradingView.com shows that BTC/USD has neutralized the overbought RSI.

BTCUSD found support in his daily 2o exponential moving average (the green wave) ends. Traders were, therefore, not to expect a renewed buying sentiment in the market – where an Analyst was of the view that Bitcoin would continue to go down before it goes completely up.

The Analyst:

“If one moves a bundle of wicks in the (lower time frame) closely together, this is a indicator for the demand for an asset at the current price. The means that the Asset will go up from there, very likely in the LTF.“

The Analyst refers to two back-to-back setbacks of Bitcoins wicks, the Ends of which are close to $11.000. This is a reasonable purchase demand for the crypto-currency close to the said level.

The mood has also favored a bullishes scenario, despite concerns about the case of DAAs ends. Only this Time, the Portal refers to the NVT of Bitcoin.

NVT is a ratio of the bitcoin network value to the transaction. It serves as a Barometer for the measurement of the relationship between the overall assessment of the network of Bitcoin and the value of the transactions that pass through it.

A higher NVT shows growth, indicating that investors expect a higher return. A low NVT expresses weakness.

Lately, the NVT moved on neutral Terrain. He rises neither exponentially nor is he falls off exponentially.

This is a sign that traders are Waiting on the next price movements of Bitcoin is still in a mode.

“Unique Tokens, which are moved in the Bitcoin network, have been pushed down over large parts of August in a neutral state-and-forth”, so Santiment.

And:

“This is actually a welcome sign, since both June and July showed that there was a remarkable deficit in its NVT, the advance said, that this is the most recent state of up to $ 12,000 looked a little too high.”

The Portal recommends traders to keep the NVT in the eye, to the next price direction of Bitcoin, commitments in August before.
