Mt. Gox manager to distribute 145,000 BTC
David Lifchitz, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer at ExoAlpha, provided insight into the possible reasons behind the pullback, noting the November 16 announcement that Mt. Gox trustee will distribute around 145,000 BTC to retail investors who have used the exchange between 2013 and 2015.
Lifchitz highlighted the concerns some have that many of these “family investors” what are you waiting for “receive a windfall in the near future” because BTC is 100 times more expensive than its original purchase price “They will probably sell them at any price, which is likely to hit the market quite a bit when the news of the actual distribution hits.”
For now, Lifchitz feels that “The sell off appears to have ended at the $ 57,000 to $ 58,000 support level” and it seems “set to hit $ 63,000 and more again in the next few days.”
However, according to Lifchitz, the caution is justified going forward, as there is a threat of a future sell-off once the Mt. Gox BTCs are released.
“However, that Mt.Gox is a sword of Damocles over the head of the market, and I don’t see BTC reaching $ 100,000 next month with that threat hanging. The whales have held their ground, but they haven’t bought much. more. I suppose they are well aware of the Mt. Gox drama and are waiting to charge in the potential drop. Now once the Mt.Gox hurdle is cleared, Bitcoin will have a clear path to hit new highs barring some crazy regulations that they could spoil the party. “
