    The past few days have seen an uptick in market volatility. 

Reaching a new achievement, the amassing of Bitcoins (BTC) is nearing a significant point before the upcoming halving occurs in just a few hours.

A recent analysis conducted by an anonymous expert at CryptoQuant under the alias IT Tech revealed that over 27,000 Bitcoin were transferred into storage wallets on April 16th, according to a newly released report.

Its most recent transaction had occurred within the last seven years.

The report indicates that the peak inflows of 25,100 Bitcoin to these addresses occurred on March 22nd.

Traders remain steadfast

The cryptocurrency market, with Bitcoin currently valued at $61,234 as reported, has experienced a downturn over the last few weeks. Based on information from CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin’s price has seen a decrease of approximately 13% within the past week.

Despite the recent decrease in price, people in the market are still buying more cryptocurrency in preparation for the upcoming halving event on April 19th.

With recent challenges, there’s been an increase in Bitcoin hoarding, driven by expectations of a price surge following the upcoming halving event.

Approximately one year following the 2016 occurrence, the coin’s worth increased by a factor of 2.95, while it saw a gain of 5.59 times its original value one year after the 2020 incident.
