According to data from blockchain analytics firm Glassnode, more than 1.6 million Bitcoin have not been moved on addresses that have been inactive for at least five years. This sudden drop in activity from older wallets has led some to speculate that long-term holders aren't taking profits as Bitcoin's price continues to rise.

Bitcoin's recent price performance has been nothing short of impressive, with the cryptocurrency gaining more than 40% to its value since the beginning of this year. However, the market has also experienced some volatility, with Bitcoin experiencing several sharp price drops in the last year.

Despite these setbacks, Bitcoin managed to recover and continue its upward trajectory. Additionally, the descending activity of long-dormant wallets could indicate that the market is entering a new phase, with long-term holders accumulating more assets.
