After hitting its all-time high above $64,500 on the day of the Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN) listing, Bitcoin (BTC) has retraced partially with a bit of downward pressure. On Friday, April 16, Bitcoin (BTC) took a dip below $61,000 levels after news broke out that one of the major BTC markets – Turkey – has issued a ban on crypto trading.
However, the Bitcoin (BTC) price has picked back quickly from the lows and has moved back to $62,000. At press time, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at a price of $62,245 with a market cap of $1.163 trillion. Interestingly, all on-chain indicators suggest that Bitcoin’s downside from here is limited.
As per the CryptoQuant data, the Coinbase premium has turned significantly high suggesting a stronger spot buying pressure on the exchange.
Maybe the bottom is in. https://t.co/CiaZVZAr7H

China’s Coal Mine Accidents Causes Dip In BTC Hash Rate
Earlier this week, the BTC hash rate was on a declining trend with some reported accidents in the Chinese coal mines of Shanxi, Guizhou and Xinjiang provinces. The security accidents happened due to flooding and gas explosions taking place in those regions.
As reported by Wu Blockchain, Chinese miner Jiang Zhuoer stated that the Xinjiang coal mine accident caused power outages across all mines due to safety inspections. This resulted in a drop in the BTC hashrate of the network by 21%. China contributes a total of 60% of the overall BTC hashrate of which Xinjiang accounts for at least 21%.
