Bitcoin (BTC) & Ethereum (ETH) Weekly Review
According to a tweet from Santiment, the activity of Bitcoin’s addresses reached its highest point in a span of 3.5 months, specifically in August. This increase in usability, along with notable loss transactions and prevailing negative sentiment, strongly suggests an increased chance of a short-term price rebound for BTC, at the very least.
Throughout the previous week, Bitcoin maintained its position steadily at 29k, distinguishing itself from the behavior exhibited by other cryptocurrencies.
Ethereum (ETH) retains its uniqueness, trading between the price range of $1,820 and $1,830. According to a recent tweet by Santiment, both Bitcoin and Ethereum closely align with the movements of the S&P 500.
However, the recent appreciation of the dollar over the past weeks has historically signaled potential market pullbacks. It is worth observing for reduced correlation as a possible indication for a cryptocurrency market breakout.
According to CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin is currently trading at $29,039.97, with a 0.37% decrease over the past seven days and a 0.27% decrease in the past 24 hours. On the other hand, ETH is being traded at $1,828.77, experiencing a 0.59% decrease in the past 24 hours and a 1.44% decrease over the past seven days.
