Coinshares data shows that BTC continues to be the preferred asset of institutional investors. The value of BTC, controlled by organizations, has increased significantly, reaching $ 57 billion.
The uptrend continues
While inexperienced and new entrants can see this decline as the beginning of the bear market, Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe thinks this drop is a development that will drive Bitcoin up.
To me, this looks like a healthy correction for #Bitcoin.
As long as $49-51K holds, I’m assuming we’ll see continuation towards $68K.

Data from on-chain data source CryptoQuant shows that a total of 14,600 BTC was withdrawn from Coinbase in the first hours of March 23. The decrease in supply on exchanges is seen as a positive sign among crypto investors.
While there is no way to verify that these BTCs from Coinbase were attracted by whales, an analysis by Whalemap shows a substantial amount of savings of $ 55,000. On the other hand, analysts warned that if the current support fails, the next support is at $ 47,438.
On the other hand, Bitcoin rose 3.5 percent to $ 56,240, when Tesla announced on the morning of March 24 that it would start accepting Bitcoin payments.
