While everyone is busy looking at the Bitcoin highs, yearly lows paint an exciting picture. Every single year since Bitcoin launched a decade ago, the lows were always higher than the previous year’s lows. The only exception was in 2015 when the asset closed $15 lower than the previous year.

In some years, Bitcoin’s yearly low more than doubled its previous low. For example, in 2018 the low was $3,200. This is more than four times that of last year’s low of $780.

HODLers Are Still in Control

The higher lows every year only indicates that HODLers are not giving up. They’re accumulating more Bitcoin during every drop, and the number of new investors is only growing.

HODLers are slowly taking back control from retail investors looking to manipulate the market and make a quick profit. Cryptocurrency critic Peter Schiff (@PeterSchiff) recently took to Twitter to point it out.

Schiff said the relevance of Bitcoin Pump & Dumpers is fading as they can no longer “sucker in new buyers.” After pumping $550 in just one minute, the asset dropped to its previous levels after a few hours. Retail investors have also become smart and are mostly refusing to trade in the short-term for quick profits. Instead, everyone is waiting it out to see where the price goes.

What’s Next for Bitcoin?

Every year, Bitcoin’s lows keep getting higher. In fact, it has more than doubled for the last few years. But, this year’s low was very close to last year’s low. Bitcoin was relatively quiet this year. However, all of this is expected to change.

After a quiet year, the world’s first cryptocurrency is expected to explode. Next year’s low could be double that of this year, above $7,500. Also, the fact that Bitcoin halving is set to take place next year, it could trigger a massive bull run. Meanwhile, these lows are a good yardstick for traders.
