According to Santiment, Bitcoin has not seen much utility to kick off January as token circulation and address activity remains on the decline since the start of 2022. The on-chain analytics firm points out that an uptick in these indicators might as well signal a price reversal for Bitcoin.

Bitcoin resumed its declines after reaching highs of $47,967 on Jan. 1. Several days of declines finally brought Bitcoin to lows of $39,950 on Jan. 10 as investor sentiment soured. The Crypto Fear and Greed index has since shifted to ''extreme fear'' as panic reigns in the market.

U.Today earlier reported on the Bitcoin price dipping on Jan. 11 as Goldman Sachs voiced its expectation that the U.S. Federal Reserve may hike interest rates higher than it announced previously.

Although the price of Bitcoin has slightly recovered to trade at $41,883 presently, apparent indecision by the market still weighs on the price action as seen by the Doji candlestick formed on the daily chart.

On what may be next for the Bitcoin price, a prominent crypto analyst opines that ''if the $40,600 level holds, continuation upwards to $42,600 and potentially $46,000 is on the table.''

Bitcoin's network growth remains a key item to watch

According to IntoTheBlock analytics, Bitcoin's net network growth remains in negative territory. The net network growth indicated by IntoTheBlock provides a view of both user engagement and growth.

Bitcoin is yet to match the rise seen in active addresses in early November 2021, reaching a 30-day low in this key metric on Jan. 1. The Daily Active Addresses (DAAs) indicator tracks the number of new addresses, total active addresses and zero balance addresses.

Daily Active Addresses (DAAs) are a useful way of tracking network activity over time as growing DAAs signal greater blockchain usage. As such, DAAs can often be a leading indicator of price action—demand for network usage might boost demand for the blockchain's native token.
