Analyst Pinpoints Critical Support Zone For Bitcoin

According to data from CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin has had an unimpressive week with its market price falling by 4.65% over the last seven days. However, prominent crypto analyst Ali Martinez has released a price alert indicating that the market leader could be set for more losses if it fails to secure a certain support zone.

In an X post on June 15, Martinez stated that Bitcoin needs to quickly rise above $66,254 else it risks a potential decline to around the $61,100 price mark. Martinez based his theory on the UTXO Realized Price Distribution (URPD) chart generated by the data analytics platform Glassnode.

For context,  an unspent transaction output (UTXO) refers to units of Bitcoin that are unspent after a transaction. Each UTXO has a realized price i.e. the price the market price at the time of UTXO was transacted. In a UTXO Realized Price Distribution chart, Bitcoin’s supply is broken down based on the realized prices of UXTOs showing how much BTC was acquired at different levels. 

This data can be used to study market sentiment, distribution analysis as well as support and resistance levels. More importantly, investor behavior can also be studied as a high concentration of UTXOs indicates levels at which most investors bought Bitcoin which can translate into a potential resistance or support level.

According to the URPD chart shared by Martinez, 504,619 BTC was purchased at $66,254 thus indicating a strong potential to serve as a support for Bitcoin amidst its current downtrend. Furthermore, the next realized price with the highest number of Bitcoin (191,366) bought is $61,101 representing the next support level should the premier cryptocurrency fail to reclaim the $66,254 price mark.
