BTC trades 3% lower as global equities tumbled on growing concerns related to the second coronavirus wave
Miners started selling Bitcoins at the end of July, boosting the selling pressure in the crypto market
Price movements are now approaching the key intraday support at $10,500
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) price is trading over 3% lower today after the buyers failed to stay above the $11,000 mark. One of the potential factors behind today’s selloff could also be a move lower in equities as investors fear that the second coronavirus wave is coming.
Fundamental analysis: Miners cashing out
Bitcoin miners sold large amounts of BTC over the last two months, according to the latest data.

It seems that some miners started selling Bitcoins at the end of July, boosting the selling pressure in the crypto market. As a result, Bitcoin dropped sharply from mid-August, experiencing a 13% drop and has struggled to hit the $12,000 mark ever since.
Willy Woo, an on-chain analyst, said miners are one of the two external sources of selling pressure for BTC.
“There are only two unmatched sell pressures on the market. (1) Miners who dilute the supply and sell onto the market, this is the hidden tax via monetary inflation. And (2) the exchanges who tax the traders and sell onto the market,” Woo said.
The selling pressure from miners who’re trying to cover expenses could result in a correction in the crypto market. The current market decline is the result of that selling pressure coming from miners and whales.
However, Ki Young Ju, the Chief Executive of CryptoQuantm said the sell-off isn’t powerful enough to stop a bull run.
If miners unexpectedly sell a substantial amount of Bitcoin, it could result in an extreme correction as a small price change could provoke liquidations from traders with high leverage. Therefore, even a small selling pressure from miners could technically trigger significant price swings.
Technical analysis: Price corrects lower
Bitcoin price has lost over 3% in value today as the sellers take back control of the price action. Buyers launched an attempt to clear the resistance line around $11,000 with little success. The price action rotated lower as equities around the globe also turned south as well on growing concerns related to the second coronavirus wave.
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) price
Price movements are now approaching the key intraday support at $10,500, consisting of the horizontal support line and the 200-DMA at $10,400. This zone offers a solid opportunity for day traders to buy BTC and hope for another push higher towards $11,100.
Despite the fact that Bitcoin miners sold large amounts of Bitcoin since the end of July, on-chain analysts think that the selling pressure isn’t powerful enough to prevent a bull run. In the meantime, Bitcoin is moving towards a “buy zone” around the $10,500 handle.

NEW YORK, July 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of launching their online COVID-19 Resource Center, Jumo Health, the global provider of age appropriate health care resources, has donated a supply of its COVID-19 related resources to hundreds of hospitals whose service areas cover nearly 159 million people. This service has been provided at no cost to the hospitals in partnership with The Hibbert Group.
Using the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), Jumo Health's team of medical researchers, writers, and animators created culturally sensitive print and digital resources to provide information on this specific coronavirus, how to protect yourself and the community to stop the spread, and more.
"We are honored to assist Jumo Health in their efforts to educate people on COVID-19 and other chronic illnesses. We join them in expressing our gratitude to the frontline workers dedicated to fighting this unprecedented pandemic," said Tim Moonan, CEO of The Hibbert Group.
Raising Health Literacy to Alleviate Fear of the UnknownNearly 90% of the population is health illiterate which includes not having access to information that can promote better health outcomes.
