Crypto Analyst Says 'We're Indeed In A Period of Bitcoin Miner Capitulation'

Popular crypto analyst Will Clemente has said that we are entering into a Bitcoin BTC/USD miner capitulatory period. The capitulatory period refers to a string selling activity, where investors — in this case, miners — give up their positions and sell their holdings as quickly as possible.

What Happened: Clemente said the declining mining hash rate and Hash Ribbon bearish cross indicate that we are “indeed in a period of miner capitulation.” Hash Ribbon is an indicator that identifies where Bitcoin miners are in distress.

According to Hash Ribbons indicators, miner participation in the Bitcoin network is again becoming unsustainable. Historically this has been a leading indicator of miner capitulation.

Another analyst Dylan LeClair warns that the hash rate seven-day moving average is now 13.7% off all-time highs and mining difficulty is projected to adjust -9% a week from now. Lesser hash rate means less computing power is required to verify transactions on a blockchain. This means more miners are now exiting the blockchain.

Price Action: At the time of writing, apex crypto BTC was trading at $16,479, up 1.78% in the last 24 hours, according to Benzinga Pro.
