Last Time This Bitcoin Statistic Hit A New High, BTC Surged 3.5x—And It’s Back
The so-called “HODLwave” of Bitcoin has hit a new all-time high. The metric indicates the amount of unmoved BTC on the blockchain in the past 12 months. It typically suggests that investors are increasingly accumulating the dominant cryptocurrency.
Researchers at Cryptowatch, a crypto market data company owned by U.S. exchange Kraken, wrote:
“Bitcoin’s 1-year HODL wave—BTC unmoved on the blockchain over the last 365 days—has hit a new all-time high of 63%. Bitcoin’s HODL wave is up 1% since the start of July.”
“HODL’ing for a year or more just made a new ATH of 62%. Similar levels of HODL last seen during a 3-month consolidation at around $400 before starting a two-year bull run. Guesstimate that this cycle will peak around 70%?”
“BTC whales are sending Bitcoins to exchanges. #Stablecoin whales are sending stablecoins to exchanges as well. This week will be a battle between Stablecoin and Bitcoin exchange inflows. These inflows indicate potential buy/sell pressures.”
A confluence of optimistic on-chain statistics, an overall increase in trading activity, and the rising involvement of whales could further improve the sentiment around Bitcoin.
