Mike Alfred, co-founder and CEO of the Digital Assets Data data analysis team, recently highlighted miners as a potential catalyst for Bitcoin’s recent pricing activity (BTC).
“It is difficult to say in concrete terms, but it seems that the actions of the miners have a direct and immediate impact on the price.”said Alfred according to Cointelegraph on July 1st.
“This is particularly evident in atypical events like the 23rd, where miners pay out> 300% more BTC than was mined on that day.”he added, referring to the activity 23rd June.

On June 18, it registered a different behavior
“The MRI (Mobile Miner Inventory) has dropped significantly since halving, which means that miners hold more BTC than they mine.”Alfred said June 18 in comments on Cointelegraph, referring to the remarkable increase in the difficulty of bitcoin mining.
In contrast, The MRI started on June 23, Alfred told Cointelegraph on July 1.
On paper, this essentially means that miners are more focused on sales. This could be one of the reasons for Bitcoin’s recent price movement.
