In all seriousness though, this hack is small. No reason to make it sensationalistic with emojis and exclamation marks. $50 million in today’s market isn’t much. Yes, it’s newsworthy, but it isn’t that big of a deal.

The 1-hour chart developed a bullish chart pattern, confirming a move to the upside. The inverse head and shoulders pattern is bullish with a target of just above $8000. Mati Greenspan, leading crypto analyst hints on the pattern in this tweet.

The traders are long with a conviction as the funding and premium rate is high at BitMEX. The BTC basis on Okex also turned positive from high negative magnitudes after the definite break from Upbit’s news. Overall, the percentage of longs in the market (Bitfinex, BitMEX, Binance) grew by over 60%.

Nevertheless, Upbit FUD caused significant volatility in the market. An instant drop of $300 followed it. Hence, while the bulls are looking for a run, it seems like they might lack the strength at the moment.
