ARK Invest analysis
The crypto market has been experiencing market downswings, with bitcoin among the biggest losers. This coin is trading at merely a shadow of its all-time high of over $69,000.
However, the recent winters did not deter ARK-Invest from emphasizing their bold prediction that BTC will hit $1 million by 2030. This is according to their recent report titled ‘Big Ideas 2023,’ which talked about innovation, technologies, and even bitcoin.
This report mentioned that bitcoin continued to outclass many other asset classes even amidst winters. Using charts, ARK detailed that the recent BTC drag-down from its all-time high is the 5th largest and second longest in the coin’s lifetime.
Furthermore, the network highlighted that based on their analytics, BTC’s fundamentals in the recent drag down are more robust than those in previous drag downs. ARK noted that BTC, despite the recent downswing, has a higher long-term holder supply, hashrate, and addresses with more than zero balances.
In the Nov. 11, 2020 drag down, BTC had about 32.6 million addresses with non-zero balances, 66.3% longer-term holder supply, and 127.8 hashrate. In the recent drag down, BTC had 43.5 million addresses with non-zero balances, 71.8% longer-term holder supply, and a 262.4 hashrate.
Furthermore, ARK noted that despite the challenging market conditions, Bitcoin holders are currently more focused on the longer-term fundamentals.
The report shows that over 71% of all BTC circulating is owned by longer-term holders, i.e., people keeping them for more than six months. This could indicate that investors are just focused on the longer-term values of the coin, based on ARK’s analysis.
ARK also highlighted that amidst the winter in 2022, there was still a substantial increase in institutional support for the coin. Entities like Blackrock, BNY Mellon, EagleBrook Advisors, and Fidelity joined the BTC train.
BTC’s price action
Bitcoin recently crossed the $20,000 mark and is trading at $23k. Based on Barchart’s analysis, the coin’s support stands at $22.600, while the resistance is $23.200. If the coin surges to surpass the most immediate resistance, it could be open to further gains in the next few days.
However, if a reversal takes place and the coin plunges below its support, it could start some short-term bears.
