The price of bitcoin soared to new heights after Tesla informed the public that it added $1.5 billion to the company’s balance sheet. Bitcoin touched an all-time high (ATH) reaching $48,216 per unit and has retreated in value a hair since then. While crypto enthusiasts are bullish, a few supporters and analysts believe the crypto asset might be overbought, and bitcoin prices may see a drop as we cross over into the Chinese New Year.

Coin Metrics’ State of the Network: Ethereum Onchain Transfers Top Bitcoin’s Transfer Value

The Coin Metrics team and analyst Nate Maddrey explained on Tuesday that the top two leading crypto assets (ETH & BTC) have seen increased onchain metrics.

“BTC and ETH onchain metrics were in the green across the board this past week,†Maddrey detailed in the firm’s 89th newsletter. “BTC market cap grew by 12.9% week-over-week, while ETH market cap grew by 19.6%. BTC and ETH realized cap also grew by 3.3% and 12.8% respectively, as both continue to set new all-time highs,†Maddrey added.

The Coin Metrics’ analyst continued:

Tesla Moved the Needle

The cryptocurrency analyst Simon Peters explained on Tuesday that people should expect a giant shift into the crypto economy following Tesla’s recent purchase. “Yesterday’s move by Tesla to invest in bitcoin and start accepting it as payment for its own products really moved the needle,†Peters said.

“Already there is talk of copycat moves from Apple and Google, linking it to their own payment systems. The shift to digital consumption is growing. We expect to see others follow in Tesla’s footsteps, with bitcoin payments increasingly making sense for businesses that conduct nearly all their sales online,†the Etoro analyst added.

Is Bitcoin Overheated? Technical Indicators Say Yes

On Twitter, analysts and crypto supporters are questioning whether or not bitcoin (BTC) is overheating at this point. Linas Beliūnas asked his Twitter followers: “Is bitcoin severely overbought? These indicators suggest it is,†he added. Beliūnas shared an image stemming from the data site Marketmilk that shows a number of technical indicators.

Marketmilk stats show that indicators like Bollinger Bands, Relative Strength Index (RSI), Stochastic Oscillator, and other signals suggest BTC is “overbought.â€

Tradingveiw’s network summary of technicals, however, is different as the summary says BTC is a “buy,†moving averages point to a “strong buy,†and oscillators are reading “neutral.â€

The Chinese New Year Transition

Some crypto enthusiasts think there’s a great possibility of a Chinese New Year dip ahead for bitcoin (BTC) as value drops have traditionally been consistent during every Chinese New Year transition. On February 5, 2021, the cryptocurrency supporter Tyler Reynolds told his 17,000 followers that a correction may happen soon.

On February 1, 2019, Phoon Mei Hui published a report called the “‘Chinese New Year Effect’ in BTC Market.†The author says, however, that the Chinese New Year dump may not be a reality. “We’ve seen some potentially interesting relationships (though not proven causal) between BTC price movement and trading activities during Chinese New Year,†Mei Hui wrote at the time. “Are the signs compelling? Maybe not,†she added.

“If I had to guess, defi just broke it’s parabola and we’ll drop at least 40% from these levels,†Reynolds tweeted. “ETH and BTC won’t drop 40%. If it did break (still unclear), I would expect a fairly sharp pick up (

“I have my guns loaded to buy this upcoming dip which I also believe is overdue,†Coingecko founder Bobby Ong wrote to his Twitter followers this week. “Chinese New Year dip, I’m all ready for you. Buy orders at 30% from ATH peak has been set. Let’s see if a correction comes this weekend.â€

Last year’s Chinese New Year was the “Year of the Rat,†and this year is the “Year of the Ox†or Metal Bull. However, just because this pattern has been consistent over the last few years it may not come to fruition. For instance, traditionally during the end of the year in the U.S., there’s a lot of sell-off before January 1 because of tax implications. Instead, cryptocurrencies like BTC and ETH touched new all-time price highs and continued to jump forward into 2021.
