Even selling stress in Bitcoin miners, who've been selling at rates never seen since BTC cost topped out at $14,000 at July 2019, hasn't managed to meet increasing demand.

Since the market heads to the Chinese New Year vacation, the crucial level of service to see is currently $34,000 while a transfer higher is very likely to face resistance at $38,000.
