Bitcoin’s yesterday’s momentum changed the technical landscape. Quotes bounced off MA (200) and crossed MA (15), which indicates the emergence of a short-term upward trend.

The minimum activity on the Bitcoin network is confirmed by the Glassnode metrics. At the moment, the number of transactions on the blockchain has reached the minimum quarterly values. The figure below clearly demonstrates the correlation of this decline with the decline in the value of Bitcoin.
