Grayscale buys yet another $180M worth Bitcoin 

Investment management firm Grayscale has recently resumed its acquisition of Bitcoin. The firm has increased its assets under management (AUM) by over 17,100 Bitcoin ($180 million) in the past week. The total digital assets under management have now surged to 449,900 (a whopping $5 billion). 

Grayscale appears to have control over nearly 2.5% of the Bitcoin supply. Grayscale is not the only company that has bought a large portion of Bitcoin. According to an earlier FXStreet report, MicroStrategy purchased an additional 16,796 BTC ($175 million) a few days back.

Barry Silbert, the CEO of Grayscale, took to Twitter to say that there’s an ongoing “race” between the two firms. 

Grayscale has reported $5.8 billion worth assets under management. These assets include Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum Classic, among many others.

This sort of institutional attention is highly bullish for Bitcoin.

BTC Age Consumed


Age consumed tracks the movement of previously idle BTC tokens. The metric shows the amount of BTC changing addresses daily multiplied by the number of days since they last moved. Spikes indicate a significant amount of previously idle BTC tokens moving between addresses. A spike usually preceded wild price movements. There was a wild spike on 17.44 million in the three-month period, following which the price went up. Recently, there was a spike of 9.68 million this Tuesday, which will trigger a sharp movement. 

Let’s look at the daily confluence detector to see where the price is going to go.
