Crypto markets have historically been cyclical based on Bitcoin halving events. Bitcoin halvings happen every time 210,000 blocks are mined — roughly every four years. The last halvings occurred in 2012, 2016, and 2020.
Between each halving, a bull market has been followed by a bear. Given the transparent nature of most blockchain networks, it is possible to review on-chain data to identify patterns and similarities from previous cycles.
CryptoSlate’s research team has reviewed data from Glassnode and identified several potential bear market bottom signals.
