Bitcoin Traders Grow In Numbers

As with many bitcoin price trends that correlate with price the chart virtually mirrors that of BTC itself which is no real surprise. Usage clearly correlates with price but with a lag of about a month, with bitcoin price currently down trending it is likely this chart will take a turn also.
The statement added that users check their accounts on average seven times per day which indicates that these are mostly day traders looking for short term profits rather than hodlers stashing sats for long term investment.
US crypto exchange Coinbase has also added 5 million users over the past ten months indicating that interest is growing yet again.
Bitcoin Price Back at Four Figures
Bitcoin price itself has broken out from its consolidating range over the past week or so to head downwards again today. According to the Tradingview BTC price chart from Bitstamp, it fell to $9,950 an hour or so ago which marks a decline of around 5% on the day.
The move has been expected by many crypto analysts who also suggested it may well fall back below $9k. As Bitcoinist reported yesterday, a big move was about to come for bitcoin and today we are seeing it. BTC is now down over a thousand dollars since it touched $11k over the weekend and further losses look imminent as the week progresses.
