“Bitcoin’s average return for 6-month investors is sitting at a very low -27.81%. When traders are underwater, FUD typically arises in the form of negative-driven posts. Keep this negative bias in mind” crypto analytics platform Santiment mentioned on Twitter.
Last week remained very quiet for Bitcoin as the volatility decreased significantly. BTC’s on-chain activity also dropped in the last few days. “It has been an impressively quiet week in the Bitcoin market as volatility continues to seep out, and prices squeeze into a tight consolidation range. The week opened at a high of $34,678 and traded down to a low of $32,280. It is starting to feel like the calm before the storm as muted and quiet activity appears across both spot, derivative, and on-chain metrics,” on-chain analysis firm Glassnode mentioned in its latest weekly report.
Last week, Meitu, one of the leading technology firms in Asia, revealed that the fair value of the company’s Bitcoin holdings decreased by more than $17 million due to the latest correction in the price of BTC.
