Analysts highlighted the previous anti-record that was set only five days ago on June 15, 2020. The new record low is around 0.41%.

Worrying Trend

Glassnode Alerts, an automated on-chain alert mechanism by Glassnode's analytical studio, detected a sustainable tendency of Bitcoin (BTC) flowing out from storage exchanges. According to the service, new yearly lows have been revisited twice this week.

Typically, the community lacks the consensus about whether this process should be interpreted as bearish or bullish. It definitely indicates the aggression of hodlers, who are moving Bitcoin (BTC) to cold storages and third-party wallets. Some of them may even be transferring their crypto riches to 'doomsday' saving locations.

Thus, mainly 'ideological', strong-willed accumulators have contributed to this prominent trend, but not daily nor even weekly traders who closely track the price swings.

At press time, Bitcoin (BTC) was changing hands at $9,285 on major spot exchanges, down only 1% in the last 24 hours. Bitcoin (BTC) failed to leave mid-term bearish channel, which was created by two zero-sum attempts to conquer the bearish stronghold over $10,000.

The Realm of Uncertainty 

It appears that the vast majority of Bitcoin (BTC) traders are confused right now and lack the confident understanding of the direction of the king coin's next price moves.

As recently covered by U.Today Crypto News, numerous top-level crypto traders and analysts are sure that the price of Bitcoin (BTC) may drop significantly before the next bullish run. For instance, Dutch trading expert Michael van de Poppe foresees BTC possibly visiting $9,050 before another  beautiful upsurge.

Anonymous trader Parabolic Thies predicts that Bitcoin (BTC) may drop towards $8,900 or even to the $8,300 level. By the way, it will be the basic point for a spike above $10,000.

In turn, this spike will meet the resistance by the bears at $10,300. So, it may not be the last attempt to take root above $10,000 for the flagship cryptocurrency.

While crypto markets are trying to get out of the most painful correction in this bullish cycle, the Ethereum 2.0 deposit contract accomplishes another crucial milestone.

ETH2 deposit contract surpasses $3,000,000,000 level

According to leading Ethereum network observer Etherscan, the Ethereum 2.0 deposit contract (0x00000000219ab540356cBB839Cbe05303d7705Fa) allocated more than 2.5 million Ethers. New 32-ETH stakes are transferred to it every minute.

As the correction of the Ethereum (ETH) price ended, ETH is changing hands at $1,225: the $1,250 level was too difficult for bulls to conquer. Meanwhile, even at press time, it is worth almost $40,000 to join the club of Ethereum 2.0 stakers.

Therefore, the USD-denominated value of assets locked in the contract surpassed $3 billion for the first time ever and keeps surging.

It should be noted that Ethereum 2.0’s deposit contract went live on Dec. 1, 2020, heralding the start of ETH2 Pase Zero or Beacon Chain, the inaugural stage of Ethereum 2.0.

Ethereum 2.0 “entry tickets” become really expensive

At press time, more than 52,267 addresses transferred money to the deposit contract.

Ironically, Black Thursday in Crypto (March 13, 2020) was the most convenient time to join Ethereum 2.0 staking with Ether at $95. Today, Ethereum (ETH) enthusiasts should pay 13 times more to have a minimum amount of Ethers required for staking.

Ethereum 2.0 is a proof of stake (PoS) iteration of the Ethereum (ETH) protocol. It replaces mining by staking and splits the whole Ethereum (ETH) network into several interconnected sub-chains (shards).

According to Staking Rewards analytical dashboard, annualized rewards for ETH staking are estimated between 10.4 and 10.6 percent.
