Could US Institutions and Whales Help Bitcoin Oerome Current Turmoil?
Today’s market correction marks the highest plunge in a day for Bitcoin, just weeks after registering a similar rash of nearly $5,000. Many now hope for the US market to revive the price as has been the case during the ongoing bull run. US-based institutions are seen actively buying bitcoin, especially on Monday post the two-day weekend leading to a boost in Bitcoin market price.
In the past couple of weeks, a rivalry of sort between the Asian Whales and US Whales was observed where Asian whales were seen dumping huge loads of BTC at a premium price leading to a dip which is then followed by US whales buying the dip overnight recovering the losses incurred by bitcoin during the Asian session.
