According to Dutch crypto expert "Plan B," who gained recognition after creating Bitcoin's stock-to-flow model, the latest mining difficulty drop is not necessarily bad news BTC prices. In fact, he says that things will get "very bullish" if the next difficulty adjustment turns out to be positive, which is very likely at this point.
As reported by U.Today, Bitcoin's mining difficulty, the metric that estimates how difficult it is to mine one Bitcoin block, plummeted by seven percent on Nov. 7. Notably, this is the biggest decrease since December 2018 when the BTC price bottomed at $3,100.
In the above-mentioned tweet, "Plan B" points out that similar situations, which are marked by blue dots on his stock-to-flow model took place during the capitulation of miners in 2015 and 2018, which coincided with the end of the bear market. However, it is not unusual for a negative difficulty adjustment to happen even during bull markets (that was the case in 2013, 2016, and 2017).
