Santiment added to the released data that a new BTC address has entered the ecosystem. This wallet is no ordinary BTC wallet as it received 50.56K BTC on July 8. The wallet may belong to a whale that is preparing for a bullish move in BTC’s price.

Bulls have attempted to get BTC’s price above the next major resistance barrier at $25k but were unable to do so as BTC’s 24-hour high is $24,196.82, with its low at $22,707.51.

BTC’s market cap now stands at approximately $438,326,628,810, with its 24 hour trading volume totaling $43,844,679,158. This is a 6.92% drop in the daily trading volume since yesterday, according to CoinMarketCap.
