The market situation. According to analyst firm Santiment, the downturn in the cryptocurrency market has triggered an increase in the number of institutional investors who invest in the first cryptocurrency.

According to Santiment, the increase in the number of holders owning more than 10 000 BTC began in February, while the increase in the number of addresses containing between 10 and 10 000 BTC began in June.

According to Glassnode analysts, bitcoin accumulation rates have fallen 64 percent since May 2022. Experts noted that in the past such a drop signaled the start of the final and painful “wash-out phase” of all remaining sellers, accompanied by further price declines of 40-64%.

On June 25 at 12:40 UTC, BTC is trading at $21 190, having fallen in price by 0,37% during the day.
