The number of large Bitcoin addresses on the network has reached a three-month low according to on-chain data provided by Glassnode analytical service. The value is currently at September 2021 levels.

Number of addresses holding more than 100 coins

The number of unique addresses that are holding 100 or more coins has dropped to October levels, which indicates that the majority of the market is no longer willing to counter-trade the asset and join the bear market.

While we are currently observing low exchange inflows levels into Bitcoin, the volume of funds in USDT that the exchange is currently receiving stays relatively high compared to the period when Bitcoin was trading close to $60,000.

The metric tends to show almost a complete correlation with Bitcoin's price, as the number of wallets that are holding the asset is more likely tied to its performance, which has not been positive in the last few weeks.

Bitcoin drops even further

Due to increased selling pressure on Bitcoin, the asset has unfortunately dropped further, causing another cascade of long position liquidations. In addition to Bitcoin, large-capitalization altcoins have also dropped further, losing up to 50% of their values.
