  • Bitcoin’s social activity dropped to its lowest in the year.
  • BTC remained in the $61,000 price zone.

Recent data indicates that Bitcoin [BTC] has experienced its lowest level of social activity. However, despite this decline, Bitcoin still maintains a significant presence in discussions within the crypto space.

The network remains active, indicating ongoing engagement and participation despite the decrease in social activity.

Bitcoin social activity sees a yearly low

Per data from LunarCrush, there was a decline in the social activity surrounding Bitcoin. This is significant, as it marks the first time this year that social activity has fallen to such levels.

The chart illustrated that social activity was at approximately 98 million at press time, approaching a critical threshold.

This decrease could be attributed to the recent decline in BTC’s price, with the cryptocurrency struggling to maintain the $61,000 price range.

Other Bitcoin social metrics show decent movements

However, there has been a slight change, with Social Dominance shifting from 26.21% to 26.42% at the time of this writing.
