Arcane Research, a cryptocurrency market research firm, has reported that Bitcoin (BTC) trading volumes more than doubled in a week.

As per the report, the 7-day average daily trading volume has seen a 126% increase in a week at the start of 2020, with almost $1.5 billion traded just on January 8.

The report reads:

“The market recovered sharply from the disappointing $192 million that were traded on Jan. 1.”

However, the researchers also noted that the Crypto Fear & Greed Index shown on, an alternative software website, has been steadily climbing since mid-December, 2019 and on January 6, 2020, it touched neutral levels for the first time since October 2019.

The report also points out that Bitcoin’s volatility is increasing alongside its price and is currently climbing the 3% level.

The document reads:

“Although falling back to fear in the last couple of days, the market is certainly getting more bullish.”

It has been analyzed that the index’s website explains that when it reaches extreme fear, it means that investors are too worried which presents a buying opportunity, while when the tool shows extreme greed the market is probably due for a correction. The indicator derives its reading from volatility, market momentum and volume, social media, surveys, Bitcoin crypto market dominance, and Google trends.

Likewise, the researchers also suggest that the tensions between Iran and the United States brought Bitcoins correlation with gold to levels not seen since August 2016. While the authors of the report admit that “it is way too early to draw any firm conclusion,” they also point out that major events in the new conflict caused a positive reaction by both gold’s and Bitcoin’s price.

The paper reads:

“The ‘safe haven’ narrative for Bitcoin is starting to become true. However, this short-term price action could also just be spurious correlation and a long-term evaluation must be taken into consideration.”

Moreover, the report also notes that the activity on Bitcoin’s blockchain also showed a renaissance, with the number of transactions climbing 5% in a week as the transaction value grew by one-fourth over the same period of time. Also, miner fees increased by over 40% and the number of active addresses increased by about 7.63%.

Bitcoin’s outlook is becoming increasingly bullish as recent reports become ever more positive for the cryptocurrency.

According to a recent report, Bitcoin can deliver 100% returns to investors in 2020 and may rise significantly in the five months until May’s block reward halving.

Thus, interest in the asset is seemingly rising and the United States’ largest bank believes that interest will be high in CME Group’s new Bitcoin options.
