Bitcoin’s Social Dominance Hits 2-Months High

BlockchainBitcoin’s Social Dominance Hits 2-Months High


Interest in Bitcoin (BTC) spiked on social platforms over the weekend, leading to its social dominance surging, according to Santiment.

The crypto insight provider explained:

“A spike in Bitcoin interest on social platforms came this weekend. Among crypto’s top 100 assets, BTC is the topic in 26%+ of discussions for the first time since mid-July. Our back testing shows 20%+ dedicated to Bitcoin is a positive for the sector.”

Therefore, the renewed Bitcoin interest is happening amid the top cryptocurrency trading below the psychological price of $20,000. BTC was hovering around $19,038 during intraday trading, according to CoinMarketCap.

Furthermore, Bitcoin has been trading much below its all-time high (ATH) of $69,000 set in November last year. The bearish momentum spread over the year in 2022, one of the factors triggered by like interest rate hikes from the Federal Reserve (Fed).

Interest rate surges usually have bearish impacts on high-risk assets like Bitcoin. For instance, Bitcoin (BTC) sank to $18.5K on September 19 based on global monetary tightening concerns, Blockchain.News reported. 

On the other hand, BTC’s average long-term trading returns continue trending at historic low levels. Santiment pointed out:

“Bitcoin remains -72% from its November, 2021 all-time-high. With such a market cap drop, active traders that have transacted over the past year are down an average of -43%. Historically, MVRV hasn’t dropped much further than this before a rebound.”

Furthermore, key Bitcoin whale addresses have depleted their holdings to levels last seen in  April 2020. 

Santiment acknowledged:

“The amount of Bitcoin held by whales has been dropping for 11 months now. As fears of inflation and a world recession continue, addresses holding 100 to 10k BTC have lowered their percentage of supply held of crypto’s top asset to 29-month lows.”

With the number of non-zero BTC addresses reaching a monthly high, it remains to be seen how the leading cryptocurrency plays out in the short term as more participants continue entering the market.
