② Mark Cuban, a famous US investor, said, “Blockchain-based assets are a legitimate means of storing value.” “The digital value store is not limited to cryptocurrency,” he said. “It includes tokens created to support Defi (decentralized finance), etc.” He added, “All of these are value storage means with a long history with Bitcoin, the market capitalization leader.”
① Cryptocurrency analyst Rakesh Upadhyay said, “Bitcoin is bottoming out near the 20th moving average line ($33,412), and the relative strength index (RSI) is also close to the middle level and balances supply and demand. “If we push the sell-off bitcoin price below the $31,900 support level, we could retreat to the 50-day moving average (around $30,920) and even the core support level of $28,850, but the buy tax would hit more than $35,000. If maintained, there is a possibility that the price will rise to more than $38,520 and even more than $40,000.”
② Cryptocurrency analyst Aayush Jindal said, “BTC/USD pair price is above the 33,000 dollar and 33,200 dollar resistance levels, but in order to keep rising, we need to resolve the resistance of 34,000 dollars. If we successfully cross the $34,000 resistance line, If it crosses over to the US$35,400 and even the US$36,200 resistance area, he said, “If bitcoin fails to resolve the $34,000 hurdle, it will turn downward and the price can retreat to the $33,000 and $32,200 support lines, and even Even the $30,000 support line could be threatened.”
③ Coinnis special analyst’JIn’s Crypto’ said, “Based on the BTC/USDT 4-hour candle chart, the main moving average line is entangled between $32,771 and $34,246. If BTC rebounds strongly and the line is valid at $34,246 If the breakthrough is successful, it can be seen as a rising signal.” “Conversely, if the $32,771 line collapses, it can be seen as a short-term bearish signal. Although BTC is holding the $23,908 line, which corresponds to a 23.6% Fibonacci retracement rate, on a 4-hour basis, it is a clear signal that the short-term decline has ended. Is not appearing.” “The relatively low trading volume means that the mixed tax will likely continue for some time in the future,” he explained.
① Michael O’Rook, chief market strategist at JonesTrading, said, “If the bitcoin price continues to fall below the 50-day moving average, we confirm that the last four months’ movement was a speculative blow-off top. “You have to play a role.”

First, if it breaks above $34,778, which is the top of the box section, the Bitcoin price is expected to rise to $36,945, the top of the trend line and Fibonacci’s fourth retracement level. However, if it is pushed below the moving average line on the 20th and enters the cloud zone of the Ichimoku balance table, it will enter a downtrend, and the future market price will be weakened, so it is necessary to respond with reference.

Indicator 1 in Figure 11 shows the spot trading volume of BTCUSD, BTCUSD or BTCUSDC on 10 major exchanges (Binance, Bitfinex, PoloniX, Bitex, Coinbase, Bitstamp, Kraken, HitbittyC, Gemini). Indicator 2 shows the trading volume of BTCUSD or XBTUSD indefinite futures on 7 derivatives exchanges (Binance Futures, OKX Futures, OKX Futures, Huobi Futures, FTX Futures, Kraken Futures, Delibit, BitMEX) in real time.

As the prices of Bitcoin and Ethereum continued to rise and the Kimchi premium index for both prices fell below ‘0’, the risk factors that should be watched as a decline indicator have also been greatly reduced. If the indicator does not rise above ‘0’ again, it is not necessary to pay much attention, and mid- to long-term purchases are still valid.
