Correlation With Bitcoin’s Price?
As the cryptocurrency community saw yesterday, Bitcoin and most of the market, went through a noteworthy price surge. In the past, some people have tried to establish a conclusive correlation between a severe price movement and the 24h Bitcoin flows.
However, the motion, in this case, it the exact opposite. Still, the community began speculating if this was a possible reason behind the unusually high volatility. It’s also worth showing another plausible argument in this manner. As Cryptopotato reported, 124946 BTC were transferred yesterday, which equals to 0.7% of all mined bitcoins. Such a transaction could also have an impact on the price, as its value in USD exceeds $1.08 billion.
