Some indicators that explain MicroStrategy market momentum relatively to Bitcoin.

Source: https://cryptoslate.com/microstrategy-becomes-first-us-company-to-pay-its-directors-in-bitcoin-btc/

Yesterday, shares of MicroStrategy(MSTR) soared by almost 16%. The momentum in the stock is highly correlated the recent price rally in Bitcoin and the expectations around the imminent IPO of Coinbase. The news shouldn’t come as a surprise if we consider that MicroStrategy has invested over $2 billions in Bitcoin. The relationship between MSTR and Bitcoin draws a lot of speculative comments from industry analysts and investors. To shade some clarity into the MSTR-Bitcoin performance relationship, let’s look at some indicators from the IntoTheBlock Market Insights platforms.

1) MSTR correlation with Bitcoin is the highest between crypto-related equities. But is not that high

IntoTheBlock’s market insights analytics showed that MSTR correlation with Bitcoin increased to 0.71…

Yesterday, Nvidia shocked Wall Street when the company announced several new products and indicated that its quarterly sales will surpass the $5.3 billion forecasted by analysts. After the news, the stock jumped 5.62%.

Among the interesting updates shared by Nvidia, there are some related to crypto. The company is expecting $150million in revenue from a new crypto mining product which represents a large increase from the previously estimated sales around $50 million. The product in question is a new chip optimized to mine Ethereum. Cryptocurrency Mining Processor or CMPT is expected to go on sale in March.

A lot has been written about the impressive momentum that Cardano has been experiencing in the current market. Almost daily, we are receiving questions about the performance of Cardano. I don’t want to reiterate any of the theses that have been discussed in the mainstream press. Instead, I wanted to show a handful of indicators that clearly illustrates the great momentum that Cardano is experiencing in the current crypto bull run.

1) If ADA crosses $1.24 almost 87% of Cardano investors will be realizing profits.

That statistic is remarkable. See the previous chart of IntoTheBlock’s In-Out the Money analysis. Currently there are 58% of ADA wallets realizing profits. However, if the price goes just…
