As a crypto investor, I’ve noticed an uptick in retail enthusiasm towards Bitcoin, even as it faces challenges in staying above the $61,000 mark. The bullish trend is becoming more pronounced, with an increasing number of us taking advantage of the current lower prices to buy coins.

The rise in the number of Bitcoin retail addresses suggests that investor confidence is returning, with BTC currently valued at $60,847.16 – a 1.02% daily increase. Despite warnings from analysts like Mike McGlone about potential risks of normalization and deflation, retail investors remain bullish on Bitcoin’s future price growth.

Approximately 12.8% of the total 15.3 million accessible Bitcoins (out of the 19.7 million in existence) are controlled by major centralized exchanges such as Binance and Coinbase, signifying a significant institutional presence in the market. Meanwhile, around 3 million Bitcoins are believed to be irrecoverably lost or stolen, adding to Bitcoin’s scarcity story and increasing its value.
