New Bitcoin bull market hodlers are refusing to sell at $40K, data suggests

“Those who bought Bitcoin this bull market are in no hurry to sell, says Glassnode, as small-time investor numbers also grow.
Bitcoin (BTC) investors continue to hodl BTC at $40,000, even if they bought it at lower levels earlier in 2021.In the latest edition of its newsletter, The Week On-Chain, on June 14, on-chain monitoring resource Glassnode revealed that buyers from the first months of this year’s bull market are refusing to cash out.”Very young” supply in declineBitcoin has been marked by low volume in recent weeks as price action remained rangebound between $30,000 and $41,000.The past few days has seen modest volatility return, but for most hodlers, there are few opportunities for profiteering under current circumstances.Glassnode suggests that this is clear by looking at so-called HODL Waves, an indicator which shows what proportion of the Bitcoin supply last moved. These are based on Bitcoin’s realized cap, a measure of market cap which takes into account the price at which each coin last traded.HODL waves confirm that, in part thanks to low volatility, the Bitcoin supply is ageing, and few investors are selling.“Not only are we seeing a decline in very young coins (<1-month old) due to the recent low on-chain volume, we are also seeing an expanding share of coins aged between 3-months and 12-months old,” researchers explained. “These are those same HODLed coins that were accumulated throughout the 2020 to Jan 2021 bull market.”Bitcoin HODL waves annotated chart.
