Furthermore Glassnode, in a new report, found that the recent rise in the price of the king coin could be attributed to the “price-insensitive HODLer cohort”. These HODLers continue to hold their investments and “the first glimmers of demand are coming back into the system.”

Hang on for dear life

Glassnode considered the HODLer Net Position Change metric, which tracks the 30-day change in HODLed or Lost coin supply (the most dormant on-chain). It found that “aggressive accumulation” by this group of BTC holders pushed the number of dormant coins on the network.

This led to new all-time highs. Prior to this, HODLers had been aggressively selling their holdings to cash in on the cycle topping formation.

Conversely, hot coins, which are BTC coins used in daily trading, continued to decline, Glassnode found. According to the analytics platform on the chain,

“The supply younger than 6 months old available on the market has remained around historical lows since May 2022 and continues to decline, further reiterating the extreme level of HODLing present in the current market.”

An assessment of the Realized Cap HODL Waves metric revealed that the BTC HODLer cohort was “the most dominant they’ve ever been.” This metric is used to inspect USD-denominated wealth held by specific age cohorts. Glassnode found that for BTC coins younger than three months, USD wealth in this age cohort was at an all-time low.

On the other hand, for those older than three months, the fortune reached an ATH. This, according to Glassnode, showed “a resounding refusal to use and sell, despite the persistent challenges in global capital markets.”

More tricks up their sleeves

According to CryptoQuant analyst Maartunn, the last few days have been marked by a continued decline in Bitcoin Reserves on Exchanges. During intraday trading on November 7th, a huge amount of BTC moved outside of known exchanges.

Thus leading to a decrease in currency reserves from 2,304,000 BTC to 2,265,000 BTC. Maatuun believed that “this is an absolutely incredible sign of confidence in the Bitcoin network.”

A decrease in BTC Exchange Reserves triggers an upward price growth in the long term. Furthermore, it is relevant to note that unfavorable macro factors can contribute to price falls in the short term.
