Bitcoin continued to drop lower on July 4 during the Asian trading session, contributing to the notable spike in the selling pressure. BTC trading volumes are up 40%, with the increase mainly coming from the sellers.

According to X user @DaanCrypto, the losses are expected to extend if Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) continue recording outflows. On July 3, total outflows from spot Bitcoin ETFs reached $20 million.

According to Coinglass, the price drop has seen over $78M worth of Bitcoin longs liquidated in the last 24 hours.

According to a CryptoQuant analyst, long-term Bitcoin holders are behind the ongoing selling activity. The analyst noted that these addresses are currently sitting in profits and dumping BTC in the market. Further selling activity by these wallets could dampen the chances of BTC gaining again.

“The highest activity was observed among holders who had kept their Bitcoin for 5-7 years,” the analyst said.

Tron co-founder Justin Sun is now looking to step in and reduce the selling pressure on Bitcoin by the German government.

Sun wants to save the situation by buying all the government’s coins. In an X post, Sun offered to “negotiate with the German government to purchase all BTC off-market in order to minimize the impact on the market.”
