Miner Selling Pressure Declines, Could Fuel Bitcoin Rally, Blockchain Analysis Shows

Selling pressure on bitcoin (BTC) miners has been declining after a major sell-off in January. This could be a positive thing for bitcoin, seen as a “catalyst for prices to float higher,” according to a report by Stack Funds, a provider of cryptocurrency index funds in Asia.

  • Miners' seven-day outflows are at the lowest level in five years, currently trading around the 1.0 level, according to CryptoQuant, a South Korean cryptocurrency data firm.
  • The last time the miner outflow indicator dipped to current levels was back in 2015 when “bitcoin went on a parabolic rise that lasted more than two years,” according to Stack Funds.
  • The breakdown in the outflow indicator suggests miner selling pressure will continue to remain low.
  • “Overall, most fundamental indicators suggest miners are back into accumulating, and we expect $50,000 to be a strong support handle for bitcoin in the near term,” according to Stack Funds.

Chart shows slowing pace of miner outflows, breaking down similar to 2015 which preceded a massive bitcoin rally.
