  • Derivatives market metrics also looked bullish for BTC. 

Bitcoin [BTC] has been in the accumulation phase for multiple weeks now, as its price stagnated under the $28,000 mark. Generally, high accumulation happens when the market doesn’t perform well, which is then followed by a trend reversal. The same seemed to be true this time as well, as BTC’s charts have turned green.

Bitcoin accumulation shows effects

Santiment’s 20 June tweet revealed that BTC whales have been quite active of late. Notably, wallets holding 1,000 – 10,000 BTC have accumulated a combined $3.5 billion since the first week of April. 

Due to the increased buying power of the whales, the market may experience short-term price increases. This was evident in the price charts already, as according to CoinMarketCap, BTC’s price rose by 2% and 1% in the last seven days and past 24 hours, respectively.

At press time, the king coin was trading at $26,766.55, with a market capitalization of over $519 billion.

A look at BTC’s supply

The accumulation trend continued into press time, as evident from Santiment’s chart. Bitcoin’s supply on exchanges declined sharply, while its supply outside of exchanges increased. This is a typical bullish signal.

Moreover, the total number of BTC holders also rose last week. Besides that, as per a Santiment report, the number of unique tokens has also taken off to about a 7-week high, which looked encouraging for the coin’s future.
