Glassnode analyst Checkmatey tweeted that 88.3% of short-term BTC holders are in floating losses. Of the 2.56 million BTC they hold, only 300,000 BTC are profitable.
Short-term Holders (STH), a technical indicator showing potential market pressure, is now at an all-time low, with less than 27 trading days (0.57%) recording prices’ lower value.
This suggests that all investors looking to take profits or losses in this price zone have now done so, and the market must move to spur fresh spending (i.e., an indicator for volatility). This pattern indicates that the market may change dramatically, either up or down.
Short-Term Holders are newer market entrants, active traders, and “weak hands” more likely to exit positions in response to market volatility. Coins younger than 155 days are statistically more likely to be re-spent and thus are considered a more liquid and active portion of the supply.
Glassnode’s previous analysis also said Assets held by the STH pool have increased by over $22 billion this year, while the LTH pool has seen a comparable drop of $21 billion.
This reflects two mechanisms, short-term holders chasing the market higher, creating a high-average cost base, and the supply that was acquired at a price below $24,000 in Q1 that has moved to a higher-than-average state. LTH state, resulting in a reduced average cost base.
