Analyzing Bitcoin’s On-Chain Data – Bitcoin Magazine: Bitcoin News, Articles, Charts, and Guides


Another volatile week in the books for bitcoin, with the price ranging between a new all-time high of $61,788 down to $53,221. There are several developments on chain that are worth diving into.

Bitcoin Moved Off Of Exchanges

Bitcoin have continued to be pulled off of exchanges, now down 41,215 ($2.42 billion) in just the last 30 days. There are several factors that have been speculated to be the causes of this:

  1. Increase of awareness of the importance of cold storage in combination with a variety of new institutional-grade custody solutions that now exist.
  2. Miners have stopped selling in comparison to the rates at which they did in mid-to-late 2020, with their seven-day outflows at their lowest levels in five years, per CryptoQuant. This could partially be credited to the ease of access to liquidity for miners through maturing borrowing/lending markets. This allows them to access capital without having to sell coins onto the market.
  3. The possibility of bitcoin being locked up in escrow through borrowing/lending platforms, possibly caused by the opportunity to capture arbitrage yields through cash/carry trade that exists due to the difference between spot price/futures premiums.

Illiquid Supply

The same idea can be illustrated by looking at the change of liquid supply of bitcoin. This metric indicates that liquidity is dramatically decreasing, possibly for the reasons mentioned above. This should cause a dramatic supply shock once more demand is generated in the coming months as new players seek to acquire bitcoin as an inflation hedge asset.

Long-Term HODLers Continue To Accumulate

On a similar note, three-to-five-year-old HODLers continue to accumulate as one-to-two-year-old HODLers have been selling into the recent price rally. This is particularly interesting as those three-to-five-year-old HODLers have experienced a bull run before, while the one-to-two-year-old HODLers haven’t; possibly illustrating that veterans know what is yet to come.
