Bitcoin [BTC][1] has once again become the talk of the town especially after its latest recovery in the crypto market. After going below $18k, there was speculation of a further dip in BTC prices. But it has held on since and has even launched a massive recovery to $21,500.

One of the pains of the current crypto market situation is the volatile nature of assets. Bitcoin, itself, has gone through waves of volatility in the past few months. Retail failures in the crypto sphere have prompted the market to fluctuate with Terra, 3AC, and Celsius leading the charge. But latest data suggests a strong recovery is on the horizon as we edge towards July.

BTC is currently trading at around $21,400 with no significant changes during the past day. However, it has shown a bullish curve over the past week with a 16.4% leap after the latest ‘crypto winter’. There are some interesting developments observed in BTC data that suggests a mixed prediction for Bitcoin’s immediate future.

Firstly, Bitcoin’s supply on exchanges has dropped to its 2018 levels. As per data from Glassnode, the BTC supply on centralized exchanges crossed 2.4 million in March 2018 and has never dipped below this.

In their respective announcements, these exchanges also decided to freeze withdrawals on user accounts.
