After the London hardfork was activated on the Ethereum chain, users have started buying Bitcoin actively on Coinbase


Data provided by the on-chain analytics vendor CryptoQuant shows that investors are buying as much of Bitcoin as they can on the Coinbase exchange.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin recaptured the $40,000 level on Thursday and has been trading in the $40,800 area, according to the data provided by CoinMarketCap.

Strong buying on Coinbase

A CryptoQuant analyst has shared that for several hours already, the Coinbase premium for Bitcoin is “huge”. They pointed out that on the one-minute chart, this circumstance is definitely bullish in the short term. The Coinbase premium has surged, he pointed out, after the EIP-1559 upgrade (also referred to as “London”) was activated on Thursday, August 5 and pushed the price of Ethereum up, along with other major altcoins – XRP, ADA, BNB, DOT.

On that momentum Bitcoin regained the $40,000 level and has by now increased to the $40,800 area.

“Bitcoin has to break some serious levels to be bullish”

Prominent analyst from Amsterdam, Michael van der Poppe, however, does not rush to be bullish, despite the Bitcoin returning to higher levels and approaching the $41,000 mark.

He believes that in order to be bullish now, the flagship cryptocurrency needs to break above “some serious levels”. So far, he tweets, Bitcoin is still facing resistance.

As Bitcoin started to rise towards $40,000 on Thursday, crypto tracking service Whale Alert spotted three massive lumps of BTC transferred between anonymous wallets.

Each of those Bitcoin stashes transferred by anonymous whales carried over 11,000 BTC (over $428 million). The total amount of the king crypto equaled a whopping $1,298,892,215.
