Bitcoin settles below $40K, Dash skyrockets and Bitcoin Cash breaks out
After consecutive days of Bitcoin surge, finally Bitcoin calms down while some high-cap altcoins shoot up.
After weeks of breaking records followed by 3 days of fluctuations, the most well-known cryptocurrency and largest by market capitalization fell below $40K on January 10, 2021. Meanwhile, some altcoins such as Dash and Bitcoin Cash soared.
There are multiple causes attributed to BTC’s fall and one of which might be a slight increase in miner’s selling their BTC as MPI (Miner's Position Index) has reached levels where miners are selling. And in this regard, Ki Young Ju believes that MPI seems to be enough to create a local top just before the price falls below $40K.

In addition, the Crypto Fear and Greed index have stayed at high levels (above 90 or "extreme greed" for 2 months) which warns of an incoming pullback.
