On May 8, Glassnode’s lead analyst, Checkmate, noted that “many are waiting for the fuse of bitcoin capitulation.” The latter is usually characterized by a relatively long, sudden and catastrophic price drop, similar to the March 2020 crash.

“If this happens, and this is really a capitulation, most people will not buy [Bitcoin] because the fear is too great. It has always been and always will be, ”Checkmate emphasized.

Analyst Caleb Franzen noted the downward trend and did not rule out that “more pain is to be expected.”
