Bitcoin Bear Market Has a Silver Lining, CryptoCompare’s Q3 Review Shows

The ongoing bear market may appear more brutal than previous ones considering several industry heavyweights like Terra, Three Arrows Capital and Celsius Network have buckled under the weight of the market crash. Yet, there is a silver lining.
According to data provider CryptoCompare, both small and large investors have consistently bought the cryptocurrency on the dips, contradicting the continued selling seen during previous bear markets dated November 2013 to December 2014 and December 2017 to December 2018. Both bear markets saw bitcoin plunge more than 80% from record highs.
“As opposed to the last bear market, where all holders across different wallet sizes were panic-selling, in this bear market we have seen a consistent accumulation in almost all accounts,” CryptoCompare’s quarterly report released on Thursday said.
“Accounts above 10,000 bitcoins have seen a fair increase which is likely due to increased institutional adoption,” CryptoCompare added.
Per data sourced from blockchain analytics firm Santiment, nine new addresses owning 10,000 BTC to 100,000 BTC have been created since Sept. 20. These addresses have snapped up 190,000 BTC (worth $3.8 billion) in seven weeks.
Investors and analysts widely use wallets or address-based metrics to gauge changes in demand and supply.

In other words, every new address does not represent a new investor. Crypto exchanges often hold user coins in multiple addresses.
