The bitcoin exchange rate has already tried unsuccessfully to overcome the $20,000 mark several times.
According to the analytical company CryptoQuant, this could be affected by the selling of BTC by miners.
Currently, Bitcoin is trading in the $ 18000 range. It seems that miners who have mighty BTC reserves expect the rate to continue falling and sell their BTC.
Analysts consider that the Bitcoin price will fall to $17,600.
CEO of CryptoQuant, Ki-Young Ju, said that several large mining groups had started massive sales of Bitcoins. Ki-Young Ju told that he possesses Bitcoin but does not trade them against leverage. He also stressed that he would use leverage up to 5x when the time comes.
