MicroStrategy whale-move effect on BTC.
Since this whale move, nothing much has happened around the market. The coin is still stagnated at the $20 mark currently trading at $22,713. This is only a 6.21% gain in the last 7 days. During the same time, the coin has only managed to go as high as the 24k mark and on the other side hit lows of slightly below 20k.
This has been one of the worst crypto winters in the last few years. Last year the coin was rallying in the ATH zone and since then lost over 2 thirds of its value. Pundits and analysts are optimistic this is going to change soon and the coin will be looking to hit the 100k mark.
