Bitcoin price dipped below $35,000 today currently trading at $34,135 with a 7% price decline over the last year. The price of top cryptocurrency is currently moving between $30k-$40k after the recent market correction, however, on-chain data indicate that Bitcoin price might be nearing its bottom as traders gear up for another bull rally. The spot volume for the top cryptocurrency is on a continuous decline even when the price of BTC has fallen 50% from its ATH.

BTC Spot Volune

A declining spot trading volume is often seen as a bullish sign for the Bitcoin market as traders often move their holdings out of the exchanges in anticipation of a price surge. While spot volumes are on a continuous decline the derivative exchange volume is on the rise again which is another sign that traders are confident about trading with leverage.

Before the current market mayhem, Bitcoin was on a record-setting spree and hit a new ATH every month since the start of 2021. The consolidation phase after each ATHs became longer but there was no sign of Bitcoin price reaching a potential top even after the recent 50% drop from the top. Analysts have pointed towards multiple corrections of over 50% during the previous bull cycles.

Is Bitcoin Bottom Round the Corner?

Every bull run comes with a price shakeup to clear the froth created by over-leverage trades to clear weak hands. The recent market correction was one of them after nearly 5-6 months of continuous rise. The on-chain analysis suggests the market sentiment is currently neutral and we may be nearing a bottom before a move up.

The bitcoin dominance also bottomed at 38% and has been on a continuous climb since then currently above 43.5%. With the Biden administration announcing another $6 trillion package to recover the economy, Bitcoin price benefits from the flow of money in the crypto market.
