Bitcoin volume

Market capitalisation

Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $199,620,143,649, down from $200,742,343,863 the day before. To put that into context, Jeff Bezos is currently worth $175.3 billion. This means he can only afford to buy 87.8% of all bitcoin. Poor Jeff.

Fear and Greed Index

Sentiment is back down at 45 after a thrilling adventure back into the neutral zone yesterday. Extreme fear can be a sign that investors are too worried, which could be a buying opportunity. When Investors are getting too greedy, that means the market may be due for a correction. Are we set for a big move?
