Now here is how Bitcoin has been smashing into the market fractals of 2017

Bitcoin stock owned by hodlers has changed hands on a daily basis over the last few months as the digital currency has navigated a bullish rally. After Bitcoin reached $20,000, long-term hodlers were established to take gains, while short-term hodlers were blamed for absorbing selling pressure.

The relationship between these two forms of hodlers has played an important role in Bitcoin’s share price over the years, and evidence shows that we could be entering a similar scenario now.

Old Coins to New, New Coins to Old?

According to Glassnode’s recent report, the Spent Output Age Bands suggested that close to 95% of Spent Outputs is presently younger than 3 months. It means new market participants are causing more movement with supply, as long-term hodlers’ impact on the industry has slowed down.

However, cycle supply dynamics of Bitcoin stems down to the understanding of supply held by UTXOs of different lifespans, i.e old coins realizing profits hence turning into new coins.

In the present bull run, 35.9% of the circulating supply is currently younger than 6 months, and historically when it has reached 50-60%, the price of Bitcoin has registered a peak.

However, the cycle of crypto-economics has changed over the past 3 years and now there are new assets that keep liquidity in the market better than in 2017; i.e Stablecoins, particularly, Tether in this case.

Bitcoin & Tether present relevance

It is undeniable that USDT has injected much more liquidity in Bitcoin from a volume perspective as users are able to switch between BTC and USDT at a faster rate.

While market fractals carry a level of probability, glassnode data suggested that USDT has registered a 1-month net flow exchange high at press time. It means more USDT is flowing into the exchanges, possibly absorbing the current selling pressure for Bitcoin.

Additionally, it was also observed that USDT supply held by the top 1% of the addresses was declining, indicating distribution and possibly flow into other coins.

What may trigger a massive sell-off now?

Aside from a massive liquidity crisis, such as in March 2020, a resounding sell-off from the seller’s end is unlikely because long-term hodlers took gains in January and February 2020. There is also more certainty when on-chain metrics like Bitcoin Reserve Risk mimicked a key re-set during last month’s downturn, meaning that an abrupt blow-off would not occur.
