The best time to buy Bitcoin was a few years and when it first came around in the early 2010’s. The next best time to buy BTC? Right now according to Pantera Capital CEO Dan Morehead.
In a tweet sent out recently, Morehead laid out the facts for why the the market is below trend, making now one of the best times to buy.
For new investors, it’s best to buy when the market is well below trend. Now is one of those times.#Bitcoin has only been this “cheap” relative to its trend 20.3% of the past 11 years.

Bitcoin Below Market Trend?
What Morehead explains about the price of Bitcoin is clear to see. Right now, Bitcoin is trading at 36% below its 11 year exponential trend. So, relative to this trend, or the overall direction of market price, it has only been this “cheap” to buy and under the trend for a little over 20% of the last decade plus.
This means that typically, people pay more for BTC relative to what they should have paid based on price movement. For those looking to buy bitcoin at a potential discount, now may be that time since Bitcoin is not normally under the trend in this way.
Although Bitcoin is trading at a lower price after the downturn in recent weeks, that doesn’t mean the market isn’t poised for a rebound. Investors should be bullish that the cryptocurrency is currently cheap relative to the trend. This along with the fact that it’s year over year return is up 281% shows that there should be no worry from crypto investors and those holding any digital assets.

Why Is The Crypto Market Below Trend?
Many factors play into the reasons that the crypto market is below trend right now. But the biggest comes from the large dip crypto prices took a few weeks ago. With that drop, many investors were scared into liquidation and fears that the market could completely bottom out. The prevailing side effect, Bitcoin trades at a lower price relative to it’s decades long trend.
If you were thinking about dipping your toe into the cryptocurrency market, there is no better time like today to get a good deal on the price of Bitcoin relative to its history.
