  • Another way to illustrate this effect is to look at the ratio of a long-term supply band over a short-term band. The following chart shows the ratio of supply held for 1-2 years over supply held for 7-30 days. The ratio has historically peaked during periods where price is decreasing or going sideways and hit lows as price peaks. Currently the ratio is at levels similar to January 2016. 

  • The percent of BTC supply held for at least 1 year continues to grow and has had a significant uptick since the March 12th crash. As of September 30th, over 63% of the total BTC supply has been held for at least a year, which is the highest level since 2012. 

  • Simultaneously, the number of addresses holding at least 0.1 BTC has also had a noticeable uptick since March. This suggests that more users may be joining the network as HODLing increases.
