Bitcoin (Bitcoin) Investors continue to hold BTC at a price of $40,000, even if they bought it at a lower price in early 2021.
In the latest issue of the newsletter, Chain last weekOn June 14, on-chain monitoring resource Glassnode revealed that buyers in the first few months of this year’s bull market refused to cash out.
“Very young” supply drops
Bitcoin’s trading volume has been low in recent weeks because the price trend is still fluctuating between $30,000 and $41,000.

The HODL wave confirmed that, due in part to low volatility, the supply of Bitcoin is aging, and few investors are selling.
“Due to the recent low on-chain transaction volume, we have not only seen a decline in the number of very young tokens (<1 month old), but we have also seen an increase in the share of tokens from 3 months to 12 months old," The researcher explained.
“These are the same HODLed tokens accumulated during the bull market from 2020 to January 2021.”
Therefore, even if a large portion of the coins are now profitable, even if they are not twice the purchase price, they are still dormant.
“Some LTH (long-term holders) have and will profit from their tokens,” Glassnode admitted.
“The common denominator in all Bitcoin cycles is that LTH spends most of its tokens on the power of a bull market rally, and slows down its callback spending as belief returns.”
The “little guy” makes a comeback
Long-term or short-term investors with smaller overall holdings are increasing.
As Glassnode pointed out later this week, wallets with less than 1 BTC continue to account for an increasing proportion of the overall Bitcoin supply.
