- Bitcoin trade inflows surged, while open interest decreased.
- The initial amount of $37,134 functioned as a pillar for BTC.
Not long ago, Bitcoin [BTC] saw a boost in open interest, signaling heightened investor confidence. However, following this surge, the open interest metric for Bitcoin is once again on a downward trajectory, as highlighted by Axel Adler Jr.
Typically, open interest serves as an indicator of the total liquidity allocated to futures and options contracts in the market. In terms of price movement, an increase in open interest can act as a driving force for a coin’s valuation. Conversely, a decline in open interest may indicate frailty in the price trend.
Diminished interest, escalating worth
In a report on November 11, AMBCrypto elucidated why open interest on exchanges is dwindling. In this report, we noted the flow of institutional capital from retail into more contracts.
Another reason mentioned in a separate report was the mounting value of alternative coins and the resolve of traders to capitalize on these price fluctuations. Despite the waning interest, AMBCrypto corroborated Adler’s view that the price of BTC is not diminishing.
When open interest is decreasing, it is a sign that traders are liquidating their positions and typically, the price of BTC declines. However, currently, that is not the case!

In general, there were widespread anticipations for Bitcoin to drop below the $37,000 range. However, as of the present time, one Bitcoin was valued at $37,147.
While this scenario may be atypical, a thorough investigation conducted by AMBCrypto provided some insight into why BTC has sustained the aforementioned situation. One of the metrics we unearthed to bolster this is realized price,
The realized value is the median price paid by market participants to acquire a coin. Depending on the market direction, this price may act as a support or resistance for the actual value of Bitcoin.
According to data from CryptoQuant, the real price of Bitcoin at present was $37,134. Based on our analysis, this price served as a buttress for BTC, preventing the coin from relinquishing its foothold at $37,000.

Another analysis put forth by CryptoQuant also discovered Bitcoin rebuffing market projections. This time, it wasn’t Adler who spearheaded the insight, but the pseudonymous author CryptoOnchain.

According to CryptoOnchain, there has been a surge in Bitcoin exchange inflows. Furthermore, a segment of the 55,000 BTC sent to the exchange were sent to addresses valued between 1 BTC and 1000 BTC.
Additionally, this surge in exchange inflows is anticipated to depress the price. However, akin to Adler, CryptoOnChain noted that:
“The last time this volume of Bitcoin was traded was on October 24. While evidently this volume of Bitcoin has flooded into exchanges, this situation contradicts the prevailing market trend.”
