When the kimchi premium rose to an all-time high during the bull market, the bitcoin market peaked, and thereafter, there was a drastic price adjustment,” he warned.
◆Comprehensive Analysis of Bitcoin Market Price <Strengthening>
While Bitcoin is seldom exceeding $60,000, Ethereum is also slowly rising, while individual altcoin stocks are rising sharply as if they were competing for returns. However, if you look at the trading volume indicators in Figure 5-1 and Figure 10, it can be understood that the market is not pushing back and the trading volume is decreasing, so it is technically digesting the selling volume.
This is the same for Ethereum and even CME BTC futures, so it is expected that the day when the trading volume of each stock increases will be the day when a full-fledged rise begins. Therefore, short-term traders should be cautious as the market price may be unstable in the short term, but mid- to long-term investors would be wise to maintain a buying perspective.

◇Comparison of yield by cryptocurrency compared to the beginning of the year (%) (as of April 6, 14:00) <Strengthening>
Although the bitcoin price has stagnated to exceed $60,000, the rise of altcoins including Ethereum is outstanding. Uniswap, Polkadot, Chainlink, etc. are also expected to rise due to continuous demand for Ether (ETH) such as DeFi (decentralized finance, DeFi) and NFT (Non Fungible Token) sectors. Meanwhile, the unstable Ripple (XRP) has risen sharply due to the court litigation problem. Experts have analyzed that the current XRP price movement is positive, and that if it hits the $0.70 mark, it is likely to hit a year-round high.

◇On-chain indicator analysis
① Analysis of the trend of trading volume on the day <Strengthening>
Analyzing the day’s trading volume of BTC/USD and ETH/USD on-chain data makes it easy to check the direction of the bitcoin market and respond to it. Indices 1 and 3 in Figure 10 represent the spot trading volumes of 10 major exchanges (Binance, Bitfinex, PoloniX, Bitex, Coinbase, Bitstamp, Kraken, HitbittyC, Gemini), 2 and 4. The indicator calculates the total number of purchases and the total amount of sales in real time, and indicates the direction of the market trend by displaying the price volatility according to the rise and fall.
Looking at indicators 1 and 2 (BTC, ETH spot trading volume) in Figure 10, it can be seen that the current period is in the process of digesting the sale for an additional increase, as the period has changed to a continuous decrease in the section showing the recent price stagnation. It can be seen that the basis for this is oriented horizontally as the price volatility indicators of indicators 3 and 4. Therefore, in the short term, the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum may show unstable, but it is highly likely to maintain an upward trend.
② Bitcoin price and Korea premium index trend analysis <strong>
Although the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum continued to rise, the domestic price rose higher than the overseas price, causing the kimchi premium index of the two stocks to exceed the price of the two stocks. In general, crossing is a phenomenon that occurs when overseas prices fall, so if stocks and indices rise in the same direction as now, it should be viewed as a temporary reversal. Of course, this is not a normal situation, so it is worth paying attention to it, but as the uptrend is continuing, we recommend that short-term trading be cautious, and mid- to long-term investors are advised to maintain a buy perspective.
③ Analysis of the balance of all exchanges <strong>
Figure 12-1 shows the trend of the bitcoin balance held by all exchanges, and the smaller the balance, the more stable the bitcoin price. Bitcoin balances held by all exchanges (Figure 12-1), which were captured last week, have declined, suggesting that Bitcoin is about to break through the $60,000 resistance.
In addition, the Ethereum balance of all exchanges (Figure 12-2) has been decreasing since mid-January, and Ethereum prices are likely to receive more momentum due to this trend of decrease in supply.
④ Analysis of average amount withdrawn from all exchange wallets
Figure 12-3 shows the average amount of Bitcoin withdrawn from all exchange wallets. When the price was low, there was a large buy, but after that, there is no such big buying trend, so it is expected that attempts to break through the resistance of the USD 60,000 will be difficult or the momentum of the uptrend will slow down somewhat for the time being.
On the other hand, as shown in Figure 12-4, Ethereum seems to have an active withdrawal amount, and it can be seen that there have been two large withdrawals even at the recent price peak. Further rise can be expected. Even if it is connected with Figure 12-2, it is consistent.
◇Analysis of the proportion of non-settled bitcoin options on the day <Strengthening>
As a result of analyzing the percentage of outstanding contracts aggregated from the bitcoin options issued by major cryptocurrency exchanges (Deribit, OKEx, Bit.com) (see Figure 13-1), the down position was 6.93% at 10 o’clock based on the number of contracts. At 14 o’clock, the weight was changed to a 29.95% increase position, and in terms of premium, from 10 o’clock (call option) 43.09%: (put option) -1.23% to (call option) 16.67%: (put option) -13.81%. In terms of synthetic positions, it is analyzed that options market participants expect an increase on average.
On the other hand, in the same way, as a result of analyzing the percentage of outstanding contracts aggregated from Bitcoin options that expire on the day issued by the DRBT exchange (see Figure 13-2), the number of contracts was 31.23% at 10 o’clock. The risk of downward settlement was eliminated by liquidating the position where the proportion fell to 2.75% at 14 o’clock, and in terms of premium, from 10 o’clock (call option) 46.29%: (put option)-0.58% to (call option) 19.89%: (Put option) was changed to -8.63%, and it was analyzed that it is expected to liquidate the short position and settle a slight bullish settlement ahead of the maturity settlement.
