On June 23, 83 percent of all Bitcoin addresses are currently in profit, according to Glassode data.

This is a 43 percent increase from the 2020 low of 45 percent that followed Bitcoin’s third-biggest daily price drop in history that terrified the industry on March 12.

The bulls have more room to breathe 

On June 1, 88.72 percent of all Bitcoin addresses were in the green, which has so far been the highest point for 2020.    

The Bitcoin price surged to its three-month high of $10,425 before retracing its gains the following day.

Still, this is far from last year’s peak of 94.69 percent, which was recorded on June 26, 2019, when the price skyrocketed to a yearly high of $13,880.   

This is good news for the bulls since anything close to the 95 percent threshold indicates that the market is becoming overbought.

Bitcoiners are in for the long haul

While it’s obvious to assume that Bitcoin investors might be willing to take profit at such high levels, the ‘hodl’ mentality is way too strong in the crypto community.

A recent report published by blockchain sleuth Chainalysis shows that only 19 percent of Bitcoin’s entire 18.6 million circulating supply is used for trading.

What is more, 60 percent of individuals and businesses who own Bitcoin haven’t sold more than 25 percent of their holdings.
