• Treasury balance plunges, raising concerns of debt ceiling impact on cryptocurrency market
• Bitcoin’s next bull catalyst is realized price flipping in June, just $800 from long-term holder threshold
• 26,000 Bitcoin withdrawn from exchanges – largest withdraw this year
Debt Ceiling Concerns Impacts Cryptocurrency Market
The treasury balance has been plunging and it has raised concerns about the impact that the debt ceiling might have on the cryptocurrency market. To add to this, Bitcoin’s next bull catalyst is expected to be realized price flipping in June, just $800 away from its long-term holder threshold. The biggest withdraw of Bitcoin this year was also recently recorded with 26,000 Bitcoin being taken off exchanges.
Realized Price Flipping
Realized price flipping is a term used to describe when a cryptocurrency’s value surpasses its long-term holders‘ cost basis. This could act as a potential catalyst for a bullish trend in the near future for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Currently, BTC is just $800 away from this point which means that it could potentially hit an all-time high soon if more investors decide to enter into the market and drive up prices even further.
26,000 Bitcoin Withdrawal From Exchanges
A single whale recently withdrew 26,000 BTC from Coinbase making it the largest off-exchange transaction since December 2022. This withdrawal was worth roughly $800 million and suggests that whales are confident enough in their investments to take them out of exchanges permanently. It also highlights how much money can be made through investing in cryptocurrencies despite extreme volatility.
Derivatives at US Banks
In addition to these developments, derivatives at US banks have grown by 2,098% over the past two decades with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. This indicates that institutional investors are increasingly turning towards crypto markets as they seek alternative investment opportunities outside of traditional stock markets and commodities trading.
Bitcoin Exchange Deposits Hit Three Year Low
Finally, data shows that exchange deposits for Bitcoin have hit a three year low which could suggest that investors are taking their coins off exchanges and holding them for longer periods of time due to increasing confidence levels in their investments or simply taking advantage of higher yield savings accounts offered by some crypto platforms.
