Bitcoin is moving sideways in lower time frames as the crypto markets continue to operate without a clear direction. The first cryptocurrency in terms of market cap is trading at $ 47,837 with a loss of 1.2% in the daily chart.
The price of BTC moved very tightly during the week, unable to break above $ 48,500. Santiment data suggests an increase in the amount of BTC stock exchange hands since the beginning of September.
This suggests that investors could get more profits as Bitcoin tries to take previous high contributions to the bears ’attempts to take over the market.
As seen below, the BTC Token Circulation metric can be used to find a correlation between the price and the amount of stock exchange moving on the network. The company said:
Bitcoin is now sitting at $ 48.1k after an unchanged two weeks to open September. Especially the amount of unique tokens moving on the $ BTC network, known as token circulation, is large. 187.91 unique coins moved on Wednesday, the most since July 29th.

The region of $ 48,000 to $ 50,000 is critical for the bulls, if the price of BTC has managed to take over the latter, Bennet expects a resumption of the bullish momentum. Otherwise, Bitcoin risks returning to less than $ 40,000. The analyst said:
Until then (BTC will return to $ 50,000), I will continue to believe that this week is a corrective move ahead of the next sale to $ 40,000. It is the same pattern as late April and early May.
