Bitcoin miners begin to accumulate

A chart provided by Glassnode analytics aggregator says that the long-term holder net position change indicator has turned green for the first time in almost half a year.

BTC miners are now storing the Bitcoin they are minting rather than selling it. However, according to the chart, several upticks in the value of this indicator have already been seen earlier this year: in February and March.

Back then, U.Today reported the miner net position change indicator turning green.
