Meanwhile, crypto analyst Joseph Young says that although the price of BTC remains in decidedly bearish territory, three factors could signal the market has reached a bottom.
Crypto is still deep in bear market as Bitcoin is at $4k and it's too early tell but a strong case can be made that it reached a bottom.
1. Volume recovering (BTC $8 billion daily)
2. CME BTC futures record high volume
3. Institutions investing in crypto ($237M in Grayscale)
