Bitcoin had a relatively uneventful Tuesday as the price maintained quasi-stability in the range between $8,750 and $9,000. It is possible that the BTC price has completed a W-X-Y correction and is following a descending resistance line while facing resistance from the 100-hour MA.



Meanwhile, a growing number of Bitcoin miners seem to be getting priced out since the halving on May 11 that slashed block rewards by half. As a result, on Tuesday, the hash rate of the network dropped to its lowest since the beginning of 2020.

More on these and other big stories in BeInCrypto’s Cryptocurrency News Roundup for May 26, 2020.

  • The Bitcoin price is following an ascending support line.
  • There is support between $8,550-$8,700.
  • As long as the price stays above the $8,500 horizontal support level and the ascending support line, the possibility of a bullish wave count remains valid.

Bitcoin’s Plunging Hash Rate Can Be Damaging for Some Futures Traders

The recent drop in Bitcoin’s hash rate was expected given that most older mining rigs were supposed to be virtually knocked out of the game following the milestone event.

This is, in a way, the natural order within the Bitcoin ecosystem. While the plunging hash rate is not necessarily an alarming phenomenon in the current context, it may eventually end up harming some traders — especially now that recently some exchanges have even been rolling out futures markets based on the hash rate.

50% of Bitcoin Active Supply Has Not Moved in a Year

It looks like a growing number of Bitcoin investors have been putting their faith in the long-term prospects of the alpha-cryptocurrency. This is evident from the fact that Bitcoin’s one-year HODL factor has crossed 50% for the first time ever.

This is consistent with BeInCrypto’s observation over the past few months that more Bitcoin whales have been moving their assets to ‘HODL’ wallets than at any point in the recent past.
