MicroStrategy Follows El Salvador’s Lead As It Buys Bitcoin Dip

For those who can afford it, the recent dips in Bitcoin price have been nothing more than an opportunity to buy the digital asset at a discounted price. This has certainly been the case for El Salvador and now MicroStrategy, as both these entities have moved swiftly to take advantage of the price dip to increase their holdings. El Salvador had quickly snapped up another 100 BTC when the price had fallen to $54,000, with the president once again saying that the country got the coins at a discount. MicroStrategy, the publicly traded firm that holds the largest amount of bitcoin on its balance sheet, followed in the footsteps of El Salvador. This time buying up $414 million worth of BTC.

Ethereum Supply On Exchanges Reaches New Low Of 14%

On-chain data shows that the percentage of Ethereum supply present on exchanges has set new lows of around 14%. Ethereum Supply On Exchanges Continues To Go Down As pointed out by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, the ETH supply present on exchanges has been going down since a while now. It has now hit new lows of about 14%. The “percentage supply on exchanges” is an indicator that shows the share of the total Ethereum supply stored in wallets of all exchanges. Usually, this supply present on exchanges is said to be the selling supply of ETH, and so if the indicator’s value goes up, it means there is a higher number of coins in the available sell supply. Due to supply-demand dynamics of the market, this kind of trend can prove to be bearish for the cryptocurrency’s price. On the other hand, if the metric’s value moves down, it implies the available supply of Ethereum has reduced. Prolonged such trend can create a supply shock in the market, which can turn out to be bullish for the coin’s price.
