The bitcoin bear market is not behind us but because the demand from massive buyers to assist the cryptocurrency — a key narrative of the bulls — is simply not there, in response to JPMorgan analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou.

The bitcoin futures curve is in so-called backwardation, that means the present spot worth of bitcoin is larger than that of the futures contracts. That is taking place for the primary time since 2018, the quantitative analyst stated, and is a sign of the shortage of curiosity from the institutional purchaser.
