A classic Bitcoin (BTC) on-chain indicator has seen a “hell of a bounce”, though price action remains uncertain.
In a tweet on July 9, Philip Swift, the creator of the analytics resource Look Into Bitcoin, highlighted a dramatic price change for Puell Multiple.
Forward Puell and hash rate “a good sign”
A misleading simple metric, Puell traces mining work in order to understand extremities in the Bitcoin market.
It has served extremely well as an indicator of when BTC price peaks and troughs are likely due, and in late June dipped into its green “buy” zone for only the fifth time in history.

“Hell with a jump out of the green zone this week for Puell Multiple,” he summed up.
“Basically down to the difficulty adjustment and the increase in hash rate. Will be a good sign if we see this and hashrate continues to climb rapidly when bitcoin miners come back on board. ”
As Cointelegraph reported, miners returning to work after being expelled from China will create more competition and increase the Bitcoin hash rate with difficulty climbing again to account for the changes.
Estimates vary widely in terms of when the turbulence affecting mining is really over.
A reversal for Puell, meanwhile, could herald a final macro-Bitcoin price floor. As the trader and analyst Rekt Capital has recently observed, downturns in the green zone subsequently fall shortly after by a BTC / USD bottom.
The trip into the green itself is happening while Bitcoin is still preparing to lay the groundwork and is not entirely consistent with price behavior.

Bitcoin price action sees strength as the weekend progresses, something that could nonetheless result in a turnaround in line with recent short-term trends.

The upcoming events for unlocking grayscale remain a topic of conversation, but opinions differ on whether BTC / USD will be affected.
“This topic is the next big story,” trader Michaël van de Poppe said in an update Saturday, adding it to topics such as the expiration of Bitcoin options.
He added that negative bias is already active in crypto markets, which may provide unnecessary confidence in unlocking as a threat to price stability.
