April 4, 2019 1:40 pm
Soon after the US Security Exchange Commission affirmed two Bitcoin-controlled trade exchanged assets (ETFs.) applications, the number of active Bitcoin wallets got incremented as the cryptocurrency market faced a surge, as reported by Bloomberg.
Bloomberg referred to an analysis by the market intel, Flipside Crypto, reporting that a increased number of digital wallets storing Bitcoin got active two weeks before the cryptocurrency market reformation.
Pushing over $4,500, Bitcoin reached its high on April 2, with gaining about 15% this year.
Flipside Crypto states, around 40- 50% of all BTC held in the crypto wallets were inactive from nearly 6 months. Eric Stone, co-founder & head of data science at Flipside stated
“there are more people warming up to the idea of buying Bitcoin.”
Dave Balter, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Flipside Crypto stated:
“We see this move much more valid than a few whale moves in October. This probably signifies a change in perception or confidence in this asset class.”
Recent crypto market rise can be knotted to algorithmic trading, a method that uses automated scripts detecting trends and determining when trades should be made.
Bitcoin crossed the $5,000 bar, and is on the rise for the third day in a row. The coin is now trading at around $5,285, with over 10 percent gained on the day to press time. BTC is now trading somewhere around $5,000(check live price chart) having gained over 10% on the previous state.
