More Suffering for BTC as Capitulation of Bitcoin Miners Begins?


Massive selling pressure has been observed for Bitcoin (BTC) and the larger crypto market in the wake of the collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX. As this month turns out to be the worst November for Bitcoin so far, the price of the cryptocurrency has fallen by more than 21%.

In this severe market drop, bitcoin miners have suffered the most. According to on-chain data, the Bitcoin miner capitulation has formally started, indicating that the price of BTC will continue to suffer. When the price of bitcoin falls, some miners may capitulate because it becomes harder for them to keep the currency profitably. They are consequently compelled to sell and leave the network.

The Bitcoin hash rate, on the other hand, has started to fluctuate. The BTC hashrate is 13.7% behind its all-time high on a 7-day moving average. In a week, there will be a -9% adjustment to the Bitcoin mining difficulty. This is unmistakably a symptom of an early stage of capitulation among Bitcoin miners.

The Capitulation of Bitcoin Miners Will Cause More Pain?

The FTX collapse will continue to spread its contagious effects to other crypto businesses, according to numerous analysts. This can cause additional losses for Bitcoin and the entire crypto market. Analysts predict that the BTC price may drop as low as $5,000 as a result of the FTX epidemic spread.

Another three to six months may pass before Bitcoin reaches its bottom. renowned cryptocurrency expert IncomeSharks stated:

“Bitcoin – When it’s outside factors that drop the price it usually can form V shape reversals (Covid). When it’s internal events (FTX, 3AC, Luna), we most likely see bottoms that take 3 to 6 months to form. Expect slow and boring, spot over leverage.”
