Sellers have continued to provide stiff resistance above the 50-day line SMA after the September 13 price slump. Recently, buyers broke above the 21-day line SMA but failed to breach the 50-day line SMA on October 17. Consequently, the BTC price declined below the moving average lines. Today, Bitcoin has declined to the low of $19,055 as bulls buy the dips.
The bears are intending to sink the BTC price to the previous low. On the downside, a break below $19,000 support will sink Bitcoin to the lows of $18,758 and $18,210 price levels. In June, the BTC price declined to $17,605 low as bulls bought the dips. Buyers are expected to defend the current support levels to avoid a further decline of Bitcoin. In the meantime, Bitcoin is hovering above the $19,000 support.
Bitcoin Energy Use Increases By 41% As Regulators Push for Tighter Regulation on Crypto Mining
The EU rejected a proposal in March that would have enforced a total ban on crypto mining. However, despite rejection, more regulations will soon be implemented to alleviate the environmental impacts of crypto mining. Similarly, in the United States, regulatory movements are a step behind their EU counterpart. Also, in September, the White House Science Office published a document that deliberated on the climate and energy implications of crypto-assets. Nonetheless, no conclusion has been reached after mixed reactions. Bitcoin energy consumption was increased as the network’s hash rate increased by 8.34% in Q3 of 2022.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin is rising after the recent decline to $18,913 as selling pressure stalls above $19K. BTC price is in a bullish momentum as it is above the 25% range of the daily Stochastic.
