The decline in the U.S. dollar’s dominance in international reserves could drive demand for Bitcoin as a hedge against fiat currency fluctuations. The behavior of Bitcoin holdings on exchanges indicates broader market sentiments and strategic diversifications. The delay in the ETF decision has resulted in cautious yet hopeful investor sentiments, with fewer people selling Bitcoin and more individuals choosing to hold onto their assets. Overall, the report discusses the impact of the ETF delay on investor sentiments and the BTC price.
