60% Of Bitcoin hasn't been moved for a year

BTC is experiencing Hodl’ing behavior from investors. According to charts, 60% of Bitcoin hasn’t moved for at least one year. This behavior may spike a bull run.

There is a general fact with respect to the volatility and price fluctuation of cryptocurrencies. It has been observed over the years that Bitcoin (BTC) has an intermittent bull and bearish runs both with an undefined time frame. Careful attention to events in the crypto sphere shows that about 60% of the Bitcoin in circulation has not moved over a year. This data emanates from Glassnode and is further corroborated by Look Into Bitcoin, an analytical Bitcoin data web portal. The data as shown in a chart called ‘Hodl waves’ shows that there is a likelihood of a bull run with this Hodl’ing behavior shown by Bitcoin.

According to Swift, the hodl’ing experience of Bitcoin in 2016 saw Bitcoin’s price attain its all-time high of $19,783.06. If a similar bull run is recorded with this current hodl’ing experience, then investors must prepare for another historic increase in the value of Bitcoin.
