    Gravity Dex Protocol: Bringing DeFi to Cosmos

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations building standards of transparency.

It looks like the unfounded rumor involving Satoshi Nakamoto that pushed the BTC price back to the mid-$9,000s from an intraday high of $9,800+ on Wednesday ended up doing more damage than initially anticipated.

The benchmark cryptocurrency has since shed nearly 8% and is trading at just below $9,100 at the time of press.

Traders who were previously rooting for the BTC price to again cross over into five-figures have now shifted their focus on the support area between $8,550 and $8,800. Any lower than that and odds are there that the price could further slide all the way back to the mid-$7,000s (or possibly even lower).

Where Will Bitcoin’s Decrease Come to an End? [Analysis]

In lower time-frames, we can see that the $9,000 area is also a minor support level, found between the longer-term resistance and support found at $9,400 and $8,600, respectively.

Furthermore, the price has also found support above the 250-day MA. It was this same MA that halted the rapid decrease on May 10. Therefore, even though the price is mired inside a very strong decrease, it is still resting above numerous support levels.

  • BTC is trading inside a confluence of support levels.
  • There are no short-term signs of a reversal yet.
  • Shorting might not be a very good strategy at this juncture

The rumor that the erstwhile-dormant wallet that these bitcoins came from belongs to Satoshi Nakamoto even forced many traders to resort to panic-selling.

However, as some commentators have repeatedly noted, the 50 BTC does not fall into the so-called Patoshi Pattern. These skeptics argue that Satoshi was mining Bitcoin early on with a single setup and the 50 BTC in question were mined using a different setup.
