◆Cryptocurrency market conditions <strong>
Bitcoin (BTC), which plunged the previous day, led to an inflow of low-priced buying, creating a bull market where the price of bitcoin recovers to the moving average on the 20th.

◆ Analysis of major media and market experts <neutral>
As the price trend of bitcoin and Ethereum, which had been leading the market, has collapsed, many market experts predict that for the time being, the market will lead to an altcoin-oriented circular market and the bitcoin price will move in the range of $54,000 to $60,000. In addition, some observations predicted a large correction within a few days if the buying trend weakens.
① Bloomberg Crypto’s monthly report released this week predicts that the bitcoin price will surpass $400,000 within the year. It is explained that these optimistic predictions were made based on the price fluctuations of bitcoin during the bull market in 2017 and 2013. Bloomberg said, “Some are concerned that rising bond yields may dilute gold and bitcoin’s inflation hedge (hedge) attractiveness, leading to a price drop, but Bitcoin is likely to remain resilient amid rising yields.” .
②CryptoQuant, a cryptocurrency on-chain analysis company, said, “This is not the peak of the Bitcoin market cycle.” “When the market peaks, everyone deposits and sells bitcoins on exchanges. The number of incoming addresses on all exchanges was the highest in January 2018, and the lowest in three years a few days ago. People don’t sell bitcoins and hold them. I’m doing it,” he explained.
③ Edward Moya, senior analyst at Oanda, a foreign exchange brokerage, said, “Despite short-term resistance, Bitcoin’s breakthrough of $60,000 and a record high of $61,000 on the back of the interest of the institutional sector and the rise of buying is only a matter of time. The next barrier will be $75,000.”
④Cryptocurrency data provider William Noble, chief technical analyst at Token Metrics, said, “Due to recent institutional news and interest, $60,000 is just another round number for Bitcoin to pass.” He said, “If it exceeds $60,000, then $80,000 will be a short-term target.”
① According to CoinDesk, the bitcoin transaction volume peaked on January 11th and showed a decreasing trend despite the continued price increase. This indicates a slowing upward momentum and corresponds to the downward trend of the 14th Relative Strength Index (RSI). CoinDesk analyzed that with Bitcoin remaining in the range of $50,000 to $60,000 over the past month, the $60,000 resistance line created a profit-taking atmosphere, and the support level was set at around $54,000.
② Cryptocurrency analyst Rakesh Upadhi said, “Institutional interest is increasing, but the growth rate in the first quarter of this year was slower than 240% in the fourth quarter of 2020.” ) Can be adjusted to a large extent,” he observed. “Bitcoin needs more money to keep its price going up,” he warned. “Some investors may have jumped into the cryptocurrency market to get speculative quick gains.” It added that volatility across the market could remain high over the next few days.
③Scott Minerd, Chief Investment Officer (CIO) of Guggenheim Partners, a US investment specialist, said, “If the risk-off atmosphere spreads, the price of bitcoin could fall to the level of 20,000 to 30,000 dollars.” . However, he added, “The level of 20,000 to 30,000 dollars will be a good entry point for long-term investors.”
◆Comprehensive Analysis of Bitcoin Market Price <Strengthening>
As the bitcoin buying trend withered, even Ethereum, which had risen strongly, is increasing in selling volumes. If you analyze the on-chain transaction volume indicator (see Analyzing the Volume Trend on the Day on page 12), it is reasonable to see that Ethereum price rises unless there is a higher quantity sold on the day before Ethereum recently recorded the highest number of sells on the previous day. . Therefore, in the event of a short-term rebound, it is effective to try to buy lightly as a profit target, but to maintain the quantity after confirming that the Bitcoin 20-day moving average line and the Ethereum 10-day moving average line are properly crossed.
The direction of the daily bitcoin market price (see Figure 5-1), which recovered the moving average on the 20th, seems to be important.It would be nice if the weekly market buying trend on the day was maintained, but if not and if the moving average on the 20th collapses again, the bitcoin price It is expected to face the bottom of the $54,000 and Bollinger Band. If bitcoin falls, the purchase amount of altcoins with greater price volatility must be cleared to prevent losses.
Binance BTC/USDT, calculated by the institute’s quant program, has an important price change for the day of $56,693. As the current bitcoin market price is already above the market price of the day and this price, the opportunity to buy is possible when 1) support for the 20th moving average line and rebound 1) when the 5th and 10th moving averages are exceeded on the same day. However, if the bitcoin price exceeds the 20-day moving average or $56,693, it is recommended to withhold the trading, and especially if it deviates from the 20-day moving average, clear up short-term purchases and wait and see. For more detailed analysis based on market data, see ‘7. Please refer to the’Quantitative Analysis’ section.
Today is the expiration date of daily options for Bitcoin and Ethereum on the DRBT exchange.

As the prices of the two stocks are currently lower than this, further increases are expected (see’Analysis of the share of non-settled bitcoin options on the same day’ on page 14).

◇Comparison of yield by cryptocurrency compared to the beginning of the year (%) (As of April 8, 14:00) <Weakness>
The price of most cryptocurrencies is being adjusted as the prices of Bitcoin and Ethereum have fallen as the selling pressure on the market has increased over the past two days. However, a number of stocks that are rising even in the downtrend, such as Binance Coin (BNB, +57.05%) and Ripple (XRP, +25.73%), which are the 3rd place in market cap, have attracted attention.
As of 14 o’clock on the 8th, Binance Coin (BNB) ranked first with 921.88%, 2nd with Cardano (ADA) with 575.40%, and Uniswap (UNI) with 511.01% 3rd and Polkadot (Polka Dot). DOT) ranked 4th with 381.61% and Ripple (XRP) 5th with 289.01%.
◇On-chain indicator analysis
① Analysis of the trend of trading volume on the day <Strengthening>
Analyzing the day’s trading volume of BTC/USD and ETH/USD on-chain data makes it easy to check the direction of the bitcoin market and respond to it. Indices 1 and 3 in Figure 10 represent the spot trading volumes of 10 major exchanges (Binance, Bitfinex, PoloniX, Bitex, Coinbase, Bitstamp, Kraken, HitbittyC, Gemini), 2 and 4. The indicator calculates the total number of purchases and the total amount of sales in real time, and indicates the direction of the market trend by displaying the price volatility according to the rise and fall.
Looking at indicators 1 and 2 (BTC, ETH spot trading volume) in Figure 10, it can be seen that the trading volume of both stocks increased compared to the previous day along with the price increase. In addition, if you look at indicators 3 and 4, the total number of purchases on the day is greater than the total number of sales, and the price volatility index is upward, indicating that it is a short-term rebound. In addition, since Ethereum recorded the largest number of sells since the previous day, it would be reasonable to see that Ethereum price rises unless there are more sells than this.
② Bitcoin price and Korea premium index trend analysis <strong>
As the prices of bitcoin and Ethereum decline, and in the case of bitcoin, even short-term investors attempting arbitrage trading are added, the relationship between the two stocks’ kimchi premium index is getting more complicated. The kimchi premium plummeted to 11% last night, when the bulk sales, which seemed to be arbitrage traders, were opened through the domestic Upbit exchange last night, which exceeded about 21% of Bitcoin’s kimchi premium. However, in terms of the distribution, it still records high numbers and shows an unstable appearance, so you should watch it with interest.
Ethereum’s Kimchi premium index is still high, and even crossing has occurred. Before Ethereum’s Kimchi premium index goes down again, it seems that we need to be careful about new purchases of Ethereum.
③Bitcoin balance and MVRV analysis of all exchanges <strong>
Figure 12-1 shows the trend of the bitcoin balance held by all exchanges, and the smaller the balance, the more stable the bitcoin price. The bitcoin balance held by all exchanges on the previous day (Figure 12-1) appears to have dropped sharply, and the price of bitcoin on the day is expected to rise.
In addition, the bitcoin price has recently turned to high valuation as seen in MVRV (Market Value to Realized Value) (Figure 12-2), and it is highly likely that the price of bitcoin will further slow down due to this trend.
④ Analysis of average amount withdrawn from all exchange wallets
Figure 12-3 shows the average amount of Bitcoin withdrawn from all exchange wallets. When the price was low, there was a large buy, but after that, the attempt to break through the resistance of the US$60,000 level is difficult or the momentum of the uptrend is expected to slightly slow down for the time being.
Ethereum seems to be more active in withdrawal than Bitcoin, and it can be seen that there have been two large withdrawals even at the recent price peak.This means that there are long-term investors who believe that it is well worth investing even at this price point, so the price of Ethereum can be expected to increase further. have.
◇ Analysis of the proportion of non-settled bitcoin options on the day <Neutral>
As a result of analyzing the percentage of outstanding contracts aggregated from the bitcoin options issued by major cryptocurrency exchanges (Deribit, OKEx, Bit.com) (see Figure 13-1), the number of contracts was 72.74% at 10 o’clock in the rising position, which was 72.74%. The proportion decreased by 0.30% at 14 o’clock, and in terms of premium, from 10 o’clock (call option)-18.71%: (put option)-3.10% to (call option)-3.70%: (put option) 5.99% In terms of synthetic positions, it is analyzed that options market participants expect price declines as bitcoin rises.
On the other hand, in the same way, as a result of analyzing the percentage of pending contracts aggregated from Bitcoin options that expire on the same day issued by the DRBT exchange (see Figure 13-2), the number of contracts was 42.54% at 10 o’clock in the rising position, which was 42.54%. The proportion decreased to 14.83% at 14 o’clock, and as a premium standard, 10 o’clock (call option)-14.56%: (put option)-8.16% to (call option)-18.08%: (put option) 5.89% It was analyzed that there could be a short-term downturn shock ahead of the same-day maturity settlement.
