Bitcoin investors brace for a potential sell-off.
Crypto analyst and verified CryptoQuant author Maartunn (@JA_Maartun) has disclosed that a previously dormant Bitcoin address has moved 4000 BTC 2 to 3 years old.
While the intent of the unknown entity is unclear, as highlighted by CryptoQuant chief Ki Young Ju in August, the movement of old Bitcoin is usually a bearish signal.

Recall that per a report from The Crypto Basic today, the analyst has warned of an impending market crash as altcoin trading dominance is at 50%. It has often preceded market crashes in the past, as highlighted by Maartunn. Notably, it was the case at the beginning of November, just before the FTX-induced market collapse.
The analyst corroborated his analysis by sharing a different analysis from Material Scientist (@Mtrl_Scientist), which showed a spike in market optimism that historically precedes price drops.
“bear is here,” Material Scientist asserted.
Notably, Santiment Feed echoed the same sentiments in a tweet today. According to the crypto analytics platform, the latest altcoin rally has led to widespread bullish sentiment on social media. However, the firm opined that it is a reason for investors to tread carefully.
🤞 This week's modest #crypto rally, particularly for #altcoins, has led to a spike in social media mentions of terms like #buy, #buying, #bottom, & #bullish. Historically, these positive terms are signs of euphoria & #FOMO. Tread carefully at this spot. https://t.co/QpQ6j5TviT pic.twitter.com/nxq0FYPbp0
