Steadfast as they are, Bitcoin bulls could get a shot in the arm in days ahead. That’s albeit news of Bitcoin mining gear seizure in Iran. So far, BTC prices are stable and may thrash predictions if there is a surge past $13,300.

Bitcoin Price Analysis


After a mostly successful week, there is a predictable correction. Mild as it is, Bitcoin bulls are resilient, rejecting attempts of lower lows. However, considering how cautious market participants are, any correction below $11,000 could spark a wholesale dump.

Possible support is at $9,500 or lower, but in any case, any drawdown is another opportunity for savvy traders waiting for trend resumption. Already, this consolidation is allowing some to exit their longs in anticipation of a correction, clipping off some of their gains.

Despite speculations, Bitcoin fundamentals are changing for the better. Bitcoin bulls are solid. Encouragingly, China is changing its wordings on crypto as pundits interpret it as bullish. Overly, that will reassure the market. By any chance, if the Chinese government opens the door, allowing legal trading of any form, BTC will be the biggest beneficiary.

Meanwhile, reports in Iran reveal that state authorities seized 1,000 Bitcoin mining machines from two facilities within the embattled Islamic republic. Following an abnormal surge of electricity demand in June, investigations zeroed in on the two Bitcoin mining farms consuming around one megawatt of state power.

Regardless of Bitcoin energy needs, pegging the world’s largest asset to a utility draws value. Besides, in Iran, economic sanctions imposed by the US and allies is straining the country’s economy. As a result, Bitcoin is turning out to be a preferred store of value, which is fitting at a time when inflation is wiping wealth.
