This Bitcoin price range is creating a significant supply barrier

Recent post On the X-Platform, well-known cryptocurrency expert Ali Martinez argued that Bitcoin’s price could fall further, basing his bearish prediction on the average cost basis of multiple BTC investors.

According to data from IntoTheBlock, around 5.45 million addresses purchased around 3.03 million BTC between the $64,300 and $70,800 price range, which, as Martinez noted, led to the formation of a significant supply barrier at this price range.

This price range becomes especially important if Bitcoin price falls below this level, as BTC holders within the supply barrier may start selling to cut their losses, which could lead to increased selling pressure and a sharper price correction for the leading cryptocurrency.

Additionally, a large sell-off and continued price decline could negatively impact market sentiment and trigger panic selling among other investors. If the selling pressure is significant, it could put downward pressure on the price of BTC.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is priced at around $64,460, up just 0.2% in the past 24 hours.
