Coinbase Report: Bitcoin’s Recent Dip Reflects Broader Market Trends, Not Crypto Sector Fears

Crypto News- In a recent analysis released on Friday, Coinbase shed light on Bitcoin’s recent slide, emphasizing that it’s not indicative of a crypto-specific crisis. According to the report, both traditional equities and gold have been experiencing declines since mid-April, coinciding with a strengthening dollar.

Coinbase Report: Bitcoin’s Recent Dip Reflects Broader Market Trends, Not Crypto Sector Fears

The world’s leading cryptocurrency witnessed a 16% drop in April, marking its most significant monthly decline since June 2022. Despite this, analysts David Han and David Duong expressed optimism, noting that Bitcoin’s maximum drawdown from its peak was only 23%, remaining within its historical range.

Spot ETFs: Driving Bitcoin’s Macro Asset Status Amidst Global Regulatory Acceptance

Their optimism stems from Bitcoin’s evolving role as a macro asset, with the legitimization process boosted by the introduction of spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs) globally. While the inflows into overseas ETFs might not match those in the U.S., Coinbase sees them as a crucial indicator of regulatory acceptance of the asset class worldwide.

However, the report highlighted that ETF flows represent only a portion of Bitcoin’s price discovery, given the significant trading volume on centralized exchanges (CEXs). In fact, the average weekday spot volume on CEXs during the first quarter of 2024 was over eight times higher than that of U.S. spot ETFs.

Gold ETF Outflows Amidst Price Surge: A Global Price Discovery Conundrum

Coinbase also pointed out the limitations of using U.S. ETF inflows as a gauge for global price discovery, citing the example of gold. Despite a 12% year-to-date increase in gold prices, the largest gold ETF in the U.S. experienced a net outflow of $3 billion in 2024.

In conclusion, Coinbase’s analysis suggests that Bitcoin’s recent weakness is part of broader market trends rather than a crypto-specific phenomenon, underlining the ongoing evolution of Bitcoin as a macro asset class.
