Major Bitcoin Price Drop "Improbable," Glassnode Co-Founder Says – U.Today

0

Bitcoin (BTC), the flagship cryptocurrency, recently experienced significant price fluctuations. However, despite the tumultuous market conditions, Glassnode co-founder Yann Allemann believes that a steep decline in Bitcoin’s value is unlikely.
After witnessing a promising 6% surge on Sunday, Bitcoin faced a hiccup, struggling at the $28,500 mark which led to a 4.5% decline the subsequent day. 
This drawback is partly attributed to the less-than-stellar performance of the newly launched Ethereum (ETH) futures exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on Oct. 2 and growing apprehensions about an imminent economic downturn.

Despite these factors, the proprietary “Bitcoin Risk Signal” suggests optimism, having dropped sharply below the high-risk threshold. 
This indicator, as highlighted by Allemann, gauges the potential risk of a significant drop in Bitcoin’s price, suggesting that a drastic decline is not on the horizon.
