Now, when looking at the Miner Position Change metric, we can see that the miners have stopped selling off their tokens.
“Throughout February however, we can see the rate of miner sales is declining, where today, it is almost net neutral. Despite newly minted coins representing only a fraction of daily trade volume (i.e. miner selling is a small net force these days), it appears that even miners are returning to neutral or accumulation mode.”
More Institutions Enter BTC. Norwegian Firm Buys 1170 BTC for Its Treasury
Aker AS, a Norwegian industrial giant, announced recently that it has established Seetee AS, a new company dedicated to investing in projects and companies throughout the Bitcoin ecosystem.
In a press release, Aker said that Seetee will retain all its liquid investable assets in Bitcoin and will initially be capitalized with NOK 500 million. The venture will focus on investing and owning Bitcoin in addition to establishing partnerships with leading players.
Aker noted that the new venture aims to launch Bitcoin verification operations as well as invest in innovation projects and companies in the blockchain ecosystem. The company added that Seetee will actively partner with other companies to focus on mining operations.
Øyvind Eriksen, President and CEO of Aker ASA, had this to say:
With the launch of Seetee, the Aker Group makes another move into software and fintech. We are very excited about the industrial opportunities that will be unlocked by Bitcoin and blockchain technology, and want to contribute forcefully to that effort. These technologies have the potential to reduce frictions in our day to day lives, enhance the security of our digitally driven economies, and unlock new business models for innovation. We look forward to addressing these and other applications together with Blockstream and other partners.
Norwegian billionaire businessman Kjell Inge Røkke, the Chairman of Aker, highlighted Bitcoin’s significant rally and noted that the asset is fast becoming a “mainstream investment.” The executive mentioned the institutional interest that Bitcoin has garnered, citing Tesla, MicroStrategy, Square, etc as examples of corporations now venturing into Bitcoin. He said:
Last year, bitcoin made significant progress towards becoming a mainstream investment. When investors with indisputable track records, like Paul Tudor Jones and Stanley Druckenmiller, disclose that they have significant positions, everybody with a curious brain should pay attention. Companies like Tesla, Mass Mutual, Microstrategy, and Square have flagged positions, while Fidelity, Blackrock, Morgan Stanley, and other asset management behemoths are working to launch investment products for cryptocurrencies, which would make it easier for investors.
Bitcoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
Bitcoin price will likely attempt to touch and cross over the $56,000 resistance barrier.
