|It seems that the fall of the Bitcoin price to USD$17,000 was caused by the sale of USD$500 million of the Purpose Bitcoin ETF. According to the ETF’s management, the sales movements have been made anonymously, so there is no way of knowing who caused the drop. What possibly triggered the selling was the need to cover debt collateral. Possibly the over-leveraged funds. According to Deribit data, option contracts for more than USD$2 billion in BTC expire today. In this regard, bears are again looking for USD$17,500 support, while Bulls are looking to buy at a discount hoping for a major rebound.|
