Active Bitcoin Addresses Reach the Lowest Level in 12 Months

BTC traders remain uncertain about the price action due to the latest market volatility.

Bitcoin network activity has decreased significantly due to the recent price volatility. The world’s largest cryptocurrency dropped below $29,000 earlier this week but posted a strong recovery yesterday after BTC jumped above $34,000. However, bearish market sentiment returned in the last 24 hours as Bitcoin dropped below $32,500.

According to the latest data published by Santiment, the crypto analytics platform, the total number of active Bitcoin addresses dropped below 900,000 in June 2021, the lowest level since July 2020.

Bitcoin is back at $32.4k after a rebound above a $34.6k high Wednesday. What remains to be seen is an uptick in address activity. On the 30-day rolling scale of daily active address scale, July 13, 2020, was the last time the BTC network was this low,” Santiment mentioned.

Earlier this week, Finance Magnates reported about the surge in liquidations across the crypto market due to the recent dip in Bitcoin and other digital currencies. During the last few weeks, Bitcoin-related investment products saw significant outflows. According to the latest report published by CoinShares, nearly $89 million worth of investment left BTC investment products last week.

Bitcoin Uncertainty

Despite the latest rebound in BTC and other cryptocurrency assets, traders remained uncertain about the future price action of the world’s most valuable digital asset. “Bitcoin’s fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) remain high, as traders are polarized on whether prices can push back below $30k again. For now, though, prices have jumped back on crowd fear. Markets move in the opposite direction of crowd expectation,” Santiment highlighted on Twitter. The total market cap of BTC is currently hovering at around $600 billion. During the last 24 hours, Bitcoin’s crypto market dominance dropped nearly 1% after the latest surge in digital currencies like Dogecoin (DOGE) and XRP.

Earlier this week, Jim Cramer, an American television personality and the host of CNBC’s Mad Money, expressed his concerns regarding China’s Bitcoin mining crackdown announcement and mentioned that he has dumped his Bitcoin holdings.
