Bitcoin Miners Sell BTC Due to Increasing Pressures

Bitcoin miners have sold over 30,000 Bitcoins since the beginning of June as market pressures increase. According to a report by IntoTheBlock, this rate of sales was last seen over a year ago. Miners are experiencing this pressure because their revenues and expenses are breaking even following the Halving that took place in April. After the Halving, the reward miners receive per block was halved, leading to increased sales by miners. As a result, the amount of Bitcoin held by miners has dropped to the lowest level in the last 14 years, decreasing by 50,000 since the beginning of the year. QCP Capital states that miners are facing this selling pressure and that more sales may come. Additionally, the German government sold approximately 3,000 Bitcoins last week, and it is claimed that miners and the German government could sell more than 40,000 Bitcoins in total in the future.

During this process, QCP Capital analysts are focusing on the Ethereum (ETH) market. According to QCP Capital data, there is a heavy purchase of call options for contracts expiring in the September-December period.




The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has requested the District Court for the District of Columbia to use the decision in the Ripple case as additional authority in the Binance case. The SEC argues that the judge’s opinions in the Ripple case are significant for the lawsuit filed against Binance, Binance.US, and former CEO Changpeng Zhao. California District Court Judge Hamilton ruled in favor of Ripple Labs in the Ripple case, rejecting most of the plaintiffs’ securities violation claims. However, the case regarding CEO Brad Garlinghouse’s misleading statements about XRP sales will continue. Hamilton created controversy by ignoring the SDNY court’s decision that XRP programmatic sales were not securities and suggested that programmatic buyers may have purchased XRP with the expectation of profit from Ripple’s efforts according to the Howey test. The SEC aims to use this California case in its appeal in the Second Circuit, which needs to decide whether XRP sales are securities. The outcomes of these cases will have significant impacts on the cryptocurrency market and shape the future of legal regulations.


The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has completed its investigation into Ethereum 2.0 and decided not to impose any sanctions. This decision is considered a critical turning point for Ethereum, providing significant clarity for cryptocurrencies. The SEC’s decision serves as an important example of how Ethereum and digital assets, in general, will be treated under U.S. Securities Law. Additionally, this decision is expected to positively impact Ethereum’s future development and adoption. Ethereum 2.0 symbolizes the transition from the Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism to the more energy-efficient Proof of Stake (PoS) mechanism. This transition aims to improve the scalability and security of the Ethereum network. The SEC’s decision not to impose sanctions after reviewing this new consensus mechanism and related transactions has pleased Ethereum investors, who now have greater confidence that Ethereum will not face regulatory obstacles.

According to ITB analyses, there are 2 “Bearish,” 2 “Bullish,” and 3 “Neutral” expectations for Bitcoin. The large-volume transactions by whales and the increase in total exchange outflows could have significant impacts on the market this week.
