What’s new? A blockchain analyst under the nickname OnchainTarek has revealed a significant upward trend in the accumulation of bitcoins by institutional investors. According to him, this indicates a strong interest in buying the asset, even at current price levels. As of July 3, 15:25 UTC, the first cryptocurrency is trading on Binance at $30 906, having added 2,09% per day and 1,6% per week (CoinGecko’s data).

What else is known? According to OnchainTarek, institutions are actively looking for long-term investment opportunities in BTC, showing a more patient approach compared to short-term investors who closely monitor price fluctuations. The expert noted that monitoring fund reserves not only provides insight into market sentiment but also underscores institutional investors’ confidence in bitcoin as a long-term asset.

In turn, experts at analytics platform Glassnode noted that long-term BTC holders remain in gradual accumulation mode, having collected a total of 1,01 million coins over the past 602 days. They currently hold 14,47 million bitcoins, just 20 000 BTC less than the all-time high (ATH) of 14,49 million coins set about a month ago.

According to blockchain analyst Willy Woo, bitcoin could rise to $310 000 if the eight largest US companies in traditional finance, including BlackRock, invest 5% of assets under management in the cryptocurrency in the near term.

Earlier, crypto analyst Crazzyblockk warned that amid the outflow of liquidity from centralized exchanges (CEXs) and increased leverage in futures markets, the probability of “extreme price fluctuations” of the BTC rate is growing.
