CryptoQuant analytics firm has published a tweet that says that the flagship digital currency Bitcoin is not in a bear market now, unlike what many people think.

Short term data shows it is not a bear market

The Bitcoin MVRV ratio shows that a bear market has not arrived yet since the BTC price has not plunged as low as it was after the 2017 all-time high of $20,000.

MVRV stands for market-value-to-realized-value ratio. It shows the ratio of the market capitalization value of an asset to its realized capitalization.

Data shared by the analytics provider suggests that the current rollback can be used as a good opportunity to accumulate, rather than being a bear market for Bitcoin.

"Short-term data offers probability of test at support, good exposure opportunity."
