The indecision may have been easily predicted, using Gann theory – the practice of using mathematics, geometry, and time to predict price movements in stocks and other financial assets – according to one analyst’s “Gann chart.” The same chart also appears to suggest that Bitcoin price is at a critical “do or die” moment that will define the months to come.

Bitcoin (BTC) Has Yet To Decline Like The Rest Of The Market – via Cryptodaily
Usually, we see the market dance to the tunes of Bitcoin (BTC) but that is not what happened recently as altcoins started to decline while Bitcoin (BTC) was still holding its ground. In fact, a comparison of the 4H chart for BTC/USD and ETH/USD would make that difference very clear. Anyway, we have yet to see a meaningful bearish breakdown in Bitcoin (BTC). So far, it is trading in a pennant and traders are of the view that this could break to the upside just as it could to the downside although the RSI points to the latter. A lot of traders are still overly bullish and believe it or not, this is the turning point where one of these two sides has to win.

The owner could set some pre-determined time delay on any attempt to move the coins. The fact that it has a built-in delay would give a true owner time to reverse a transaction if their private information had been compromised and someone tried to steal their crypto.
