Investors debate on reopening Chinese market

According to Marcys Sotiriou, GlobalBlock’s digital analyst and asset broker, Bitcoin broke the $30,000 threshold but needs to hold reset and hold the $29,300 level to suggest a continuation to the upside.

As stated before, the rally in the market comes as a bump in the Asian equities, largely bullish on Monday, May 30, 2022, due to major Chinese cities' COVID-19 lockdowns that began to ease after strict restrictions started to go up.

Investors placed wagers that reopening the economy could cause a spike in consumer spending, which could boost company revenues in the coming weeks and could indicate a bottom for stocks in the Asian region.

What's driving the upsurge in prices

Long-term holders of Bitcoin are the driving force of the current price action with some gathering and others realising losses at an average of -27 per cent.

CoindDesk reports that despite the selling witnessed by some in the long-term holder cohort, the total supply held by these wallets recently returned to its all-time high of 13.048 million BTC.

Glassnode explained that unless significant coin redistribution occurs, the market can therefore expect this supply metric to commence climbing over the course of the next 3-4 months, suggesting holders to continue to gradually soak up, and hold onto supply.
