BTC holders & their behaviour:
The Chinese writer Colin Wu explained the behavior of bitcoin holders and their most recent attitude towards the commodity using data from the blockchain analytics startup Glassnode.
The percentage of bitcoin holders who have not transferred their bitcoin in more than ten years is 12.3 percent, as seen in the graph below. As a result, the tokens are considered dormant.
Those who haven’t transferred any BTC holdings between two and three years and between three and five years are 10% and 12.26%, respectively.
Surprisingly, individuals who have held their money for six to twelve months account for the highest number of those who have refused to shift them – 19.5 percent. In the end, 85.14 percent of bitcoins have not changed hands in at least three months, a new high.
According to another recent data from Glassnode, the Long-Term Holders Supply continues to grow at breakneck speed, accounting for between 13x and 15x the new bitcoin issuance.
“Over the last 7-months, HODLing behavior has dominated, and over 2.37 million BTC have migrated across the Short-to-Long Term holder threshold (~155 days). To put this into context, only 186K BTC have been freshly mined in the same period.”
