Crypto analyst Willie Woo has said Bitcoin has not entered a bear market, as long-term hodlers continue to accumulate assets in their portfolios, and on-chain indicators point to a reversal in the negative dynamics of the digital gold price.
He believes the market is in a speculative phase. According to Woo, the crypto sold at the beginning of the year is gradually returning to the hodlers' portfolios.
Woo has pointed out the current cycle is unlike any the market has seen before because its "underlying structure" is completely different.
The founder of cryptocurrency bank Galaxy Digital, Mike Novogratz, has called the exodus of miners from China "a huge boon" for the cryptocurrency industry. According to him, the repressive policy of the People's Republic of China will not interfere with the development of Bitcoin.
He has added the market crash in May only proved the viability of the digital asset ecosystem.
