Key Events Prompting Investors to Buy the Spot Bitcoin ETFs

The crypto market has seen a downward trend in recent weeks, partly due to the Mt. Gox repayment announcement and recent government wallet activities in the US and Germany. Since early July, the German government has been actively selling Bitcoin. Arkham Intelligence reports that the government currently holds approximately 24.36K BTC, valued at $1.4 billion. Recent transfers indicate that German authorities have sold nearly half of their original BTC holdings, which were around 50,000 BTC.

Furthermore, Mt. Gox’s Rehabilitation Trustee confirmed last Friday that the company has started repaying creditors affected by the 2014 hack. Victims will receive repayments of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash through designated crypto exchanges. Those developments have likely intensified selling pressure across the crypto market.

However, many investors see this as an opportunity and have begun buying the dips. The price of Bitcoin has fallen sharply over the past two trading weeks, hitting a low of $53,600 on July 5, marking the first time the asset has traded below $54,000 since February.

Bitcoin Price Poised to Rally Above $60k

BTC has surged more than 2% in the past 24 hours, trading at $57,603. Trading volume has also risen by 36% in the past 24 hours, suggesting increased interest among traders. Moreover, Data from the derivatives market indicates significant buying activity by futures and options traders.
