Bullish Signs: 2.6 million Bitcoins are being held on crypto exchanges

Over the past few weeks, the selling pressures and high volatility usually experienced in the most valuable crypto market have greatly reduced.

The decline of  BTC exchange balances signals reduced selling pressure. Currently, 2.6 million BTC is being held on exchanges. This is significantly lower than the last time Bitcoin hit a local top a year ago (2.8M), and lower than before the sell-off in March (2.9 million).

Still, the number of Bitcoin entities holding at least 1,000 BTC continues to grow.

Bullish Signs

These metrics show sign of investor confidence, as Bitcoin’s long-term price prospects reached its highest level since August 2017.

Bitcoin bulls have been on a bullish run, triggered by high liquidity in the global money markets. Investors remain bullish in the long term despite the blurred global economic outlook and resurgence of the COVID-19 virus.

The percentage of supply owned by entities holding ≤ 10 $BTC grew from 5.1% to 13.8% in 5 years, while the percent held by entities with 100-100k BTC declined from 62.9% to 49.8%.

These show that more retail investors are grabbing a stake on the most popular crypto asset, thereby diminishing the strength of BTC whales.
