The news of lower fees came at a time when the adoption of Segregated Witness (SegWit) has been recorded to its all-time high. The share is soon going to reach 40 percent which is likely to be because of Xapo, a wallet and cold storage provider implementing the technology.

Meanwhile, BTC price could drop down to $5,600 level, before making an upward start?

Bitcoin price has dropped down to $7,286 level. BTC has lost 22 percent of its value in just a month, when it was at $9363 price level on April 28.

Willy Woo, who first got into the highlight when he defended Bitcoin over Blockchain at this year’s Consensus event took to Twitter to predict that BTC price will go even lower than February’s $6,200 low.

Woo commented:

“I think we are gonna go to $5500-5700 next, I can’t see $7000 holding.

Most likely we’ll balance a bit, then we’ll slide through. Long timeframes here, looking into June for the rough timing of this to play out at the best guess.”

He further went on to describe how volatility and standards NVT are too high. Then he stated:

“2014 had a 2-phase drop. I doubt we’ll see that this time around. I think we’ll see this center section cut out. Next up cycle will take less time.”

Before concluding with:

“So in summary my best guess… slowish bleed down to $6800… then a steeper slide to $5700, then a levelling out of the drop… then a flat zone. This is an educated guess based on volume profile and fundamental data framing the rate of movement. /11”
