As the bearish trend continues to dominate the cryptocurrency industry, most digital assets are taking their cue from the market’s representative – Bitcoin (BTC) – which itself threatens to decline even further as it seems to be losing all its major areas of support.
Specifically, Bitcoin losing critical areas of support increases the probability of a correction to the next important demand wall between $23,200 and $24,000, where 850,000 addresses had previously purchased 340,000 BTC and are in profit, as observed by cryptocurrency analyst Ali Martinez in a tweet on May 25.
Indeed, the graphic Martinez retrieved from the crypto monitoring platform IntoTheBlock demonstrates that 852,620 addresses have purchased 341,600 BTC at the average price of $23,484.56, the area which could represent the next target for the flagship decentralized finance (DeFi) asset.
On the other hand, the 1.84 million addresses had purchased 870,730 BTC at the price between $26.426.06 and $27,167.61 (average of $26,947.06) and are at loss, with this area representing the closest resistance level for the maiden digital asset.
