Bitcoin News: After a massive crypto market crash today with over 250 million in total liquidation, whales have surprisingly started buying Bitcoin. Crypto analysts think it’s a great opportunity for investors to buy the Bitcoin dip, with longs to provide a better return on investment.
Whale Alert on March 3 reported that a whale adds 999 BTC worth over 23 million from the crypto exchange Binance to an unknown wallet. Further analysis revealed that the wallet contains only 999 BTC, indicating either it’s an internal transfer or a new whale wallet.
Popular crypto market analyst Michael van de Poppe said the crypto market correction is the right time to buy Bitcoin and other altcoins. BTC price has dropped by 5% in the last 24 hours, proving an excellent opportunity to buy the dip.
Despite the negativity around Mt. Gox Bitcoin unlocks, Ethereum Shanghai ETH unlock, and Silvergate bank, longs from $21.7K is the best level to buy Bitcoin.
Popular analyst Rekt Capital predicts Bitcoin price will stay in the range unless BTC can break the resistance of $23,400. BTC monthly close below $23,400 gave traders a chance to sell on the expiry day. However, he also warns that BTC can dip lower in the range as the price continues to consolidate.
