Bitcoin Miner Capitulation Is Over – BTC Is Re-Testing $10k Once More

The crypto market looks great, with most of the digital assets trading in the green today.

At the moment of writing this article, Bitcoin is trading in the green as well, and the coin seems to be re-testing $10k once again.

Currently, Bitcoin is trading at $9,891.39.

Bitcoin post-having miner capitulation is over

The latest reports show that the much-feared post-halving miner capitulation – that has been blamed for massive sell-offs in the past is now over as miners began to favor accumulation these days.

The blockchain analytics platform CryptoQuant said that its Miners’ Position Index (MPI_ – which is a metric that offers insight on whether Bitcoin miners sell or hold their coins- has fallen almost a month after the third BTC halving.

The online magazine the Daily Hodl writes that a high MPI reading is showing that miners are selling while a low MPI value marks miner accumulation.

“On May 10th, the day before the third halving, the MPI soared to its 2020 high of -0.275. By June 1st, the metric plunged nearly 200% to -0.752,” according to the same online publication.

They also bring up crypto intelligence firm Glassnode and it seems that data coming from them is showing that the miners are in the accumulation mode – “Glassnode’s Miner Outflow Multiple reads at 0.613, a value that mirrors the bear market bottom of December 2018 when miners accumulated Bitcoin at $3,000.”

Bullish Bitcoin predictions

Following the Bitcoin halving which took place in May, there were all kinds of optimistic predictions about the price of the king coin.

Crypto influencer and Bitcoin maximalists Tuur Demeester cited data from the crypto analytics company Glassnode said that Bitcoin miners are almost done selling BTC.

This is the tweet that he reposted:

Crypto analysts are waiting to see Bitcoin surpassing $10k once more. This is a really important psychological limit.
