Coinbase research indicates that long-term Bitcoin holders did not sell during the market crash
In the backdrop of the Federal Reserve doubling down on rate rises, the stablecoin outflow will increase, as conventional finance becomes more appealing to depositors seeking greater rates.
According to Coinbase’s most recent monthly report, long-term bitcoin investors have not sold their holdings during market volatility. Instead, short-term speculators are mostly responsible for the significant selling that has exacerbated the asset’s decline.
The article also observed that miners and crypto enterprises who are compelled to sell their assets to remain viable in the face of a liquidity flight have shown that the sector is facing a credit-related risk rather than a crypto-specific issue.
True Believers Are Holding
The analysis, titled “The Elusive Bottom,” examined the entire market environment in June as the leading cryptocurrency showed indicators that it was nearing its bottom. Despite a minor decrease from the 80 percent reported at the beginning of the year, 77 percent of the 21 million bitcoins ever available to be mined are still owned by long-term bitcoin holders, according to on-chain statistics.
The relative strength of the asset was proved by the fact that the proportion of long-term investors topped 60 percent during the previous cycle’s high in December 2017. The analysis saw this tendency as an indication that genuine believers are less inclined to increase selling pressure during stressful moments.
