On-chain analyst William Clemente has demonstrated some metrics that might indicate the process of accumulation in the Bitcoin network.
The Bitcoin sell-off is absorbed by long-term holders
An analysis of the ongoing on-chain processes in the Bitcoin network by Clemente has been shared in the latest issue of The Pomp Letter
[NEW POST] Strong Hands Are Aggressively Accumulating Bitcoin@WClementeIII breaks down this week's on-chain metrics, which unequivocally show that the market's most experienced holders are continuing to accumulate at an impressive rate. https://t.co/JlJYJe0L2t— Pomp ? (@APompliano) June 25, 2021
As stated by Clemente, long-term holders of the first cryptocurrency notably increased their positions this week. Illiquid supply of Bitcoins has been steadily growing since late May.
Namely, long-term holders have added 120,739 BTC while "young" investors have reduced their holdings by 97,333 BTC.
Similar processes were observed in 2013 and 2016. According to the newsletter, that’s how experienced Bitcoiners are "setting the floor" for the next phase of the bull run.
Big money is buying this dip
At the same time, the number of most influential Bitcoin holders (‘whales", "retail wallets" with 1,000+ BTC).
The number of stablecoins available on centralized exchanges also spiked to historic highs, as noticed by U.Today recently. Potentially, this indicates the increased interest in buying.
Meanwhile, some miners are selling their riches even amid the ongoing "dip." This should likely be attributed to the intensified China crackdown on crypto and mining.
Processes registered on "over-the-counter" platforms should be also interpreted as bullish signs, analyst adds.
