The Bitcoin rate has held up very well in the last 3 weeks since the halving. Historically, the time after halving has been characterized by weak Bitcoin price performance and there were quite a few who predicted a crash after May 11th. So far, the opposite has actually happened. On May 11, the Bitcoin price was trading at just under $ 8,600, but now stands at over $ 9,500.Yesterday, the BTC price even rose above the magical $ 10,000 mark, but failed with this pump due to the resistance at $ 10,500. Shortly after the joy of the pump, however, it was known that the disillusionment with the $ 1,000 crash returned to $ 9,500. But what triggered the dump? New statistics show that the miner’s surrender could be responsible for this.

This is shown in the following chart that Ju shared on his Twitter profile:
