Why Bitcoin’s Supply Shortage Matters a Lot

Although Bitcoin’s supply is at its lowest, the leading cryptocurrency is still managing to evolve to institutional currency from the netherworld currency. 

Bitcoin, being a leading cryptocurrency globally, is facing supply crises and deficits for the past two to three years. Despite these things, it recently managed to recover in the market from 49,000 dollars to the level of 54,000 dollars in a single hit. The decrease in its supply is assumed to be caused by the transfer of BTC to unknown wallets.

Glassnode’s Research 

The data published by the crypto research analysis has addressed the trend of Bitcoin in its blog, saying that almost 1,000 Bitcoins were created at the start of 2021, but at the same time, it has also been decreasing at an equal rate. The change in its price over the past seven days is reported to be 9.5 percent, and the increase in the volatility in the coming days is also expected. 

Bitcoin shortage and demand are directly linked with its price. Since January 10th, 2021, it has jumped above 39,000 dollars with a market capitalization of 727 billion dollars. As for today, Bitcoin demand is more than its supply. 

Bitcoin’s top buyers, including Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, Square, and PayPal, have a purchase rate of 900 BTC per day. This increased demand has caused volatility. This downfall in the supply is building a narrative of shortage among the traders. 

There has been a sudden drop noticed on the charts shared by Glassnode. The institutional demand for BTC has been on rising, making huge firms like Micro Strategy and Grayscale accumulate Bitcoin in the huge amount into their wallets. The total worth of BTC under their management has bounced above 25 million dollars. 

We believe that BTC is now matured, and the narrative will change when outcomes become bullish. Its price will range between the Ergo level that is the most important psychological level of 52,000 dollars, and is expected to hit $58,000.

At press time, Bitcoin is standing at $55,437 after an increase of 3.25% in the past 24-hours.
