As shown in the graph above, “more than a quarter of network-connected devices are currently submerged” while “almost 10.9% of networks cost between $33,500 and $44,600.”

Glassnode said:

“If the market fails to establish a sustainable uptrend, these users are statistically likely to become another source of pressure on the sell side, especially if prices are trading below their underlying cost.”
Price may continue to ‘bottom zone’
An insight into the headwinds BTC is facing was provided by research firm Delphi Digital, which previously noted that Bitcoin “has moved into its daily, weekly and monthly resistance zone.”

This confluence of resistances led Delphi Digital to speculate that “$45,000 was a logical place to look for profit taking/risk mitigation activity due to the confluence of resistance areas and the speed and range of movement from recent lows,” which actually turned out to be the case where the price fell sharply Shortly after he reached this level.

According to Delphi Digital, bitcoin price has “paused in the past two weeks” and has not “recovered the weekly support structure or the center of the yearly range.”

Delphi Digital said:

“If the $40,000 level is not maintained, the next level for the market structure in the region will be $38,500. If we lose this level, we can expect a resumption of the previous lows with a good chance of a price decline.”
