‘Rick Astley’ Hodlers Keep Bitcoin Prices Above $60K

2 min read

Bitcoin market momentum is being buoyed up by the upcoming Coinbase IPO on April 14 to name a few things. The most recent report from on-chain analytics service provider Glassnode has actually reported that extra momentum has originated from Grayscale’s intent to transform its Bitcoin Trust into an exchange-traded fund (EFT).

Expert Willy Woo has actually created brand-new terms for Bitcoin holders, labeling them as ‘Rick Astely purchasers’ after the British singer who had his one-hit marvel in 1987.

“These are strong hands who are never gon na offer you up [read: hodling coins forever], nor let you down [read: never let their sat balance decrease]”

Woo cited a chart showing liquid supply change which was still deep at a loss suggesting that coins were stagnating or being spent. The metric indicates the rate at which coins are crossing the liquid to the illiquid threshold.

Never Gon na Give You Up …

… The report added that the Bitcoin HODLer Position Change uses 155 days as the procedure of ‘old coins’, because they have actually not been touched for that amount of time.

155-days back was around mid-November when BTC rates were trading up from $16k to $18k following MicroStrategy’s preliminary 2 acquisitions it kept in mind.

“As a result, it is most likely that the coins purchased by organizations in late 2020 and early 2021 are starting to mature past the 155-day threshold (presuming they hung on in real Rick Astley design).”

The uptrend in this metric is most likely to continue providing those institutional buyers continue to hold. With many funds seeking much longer-term gains than short-term day traders and speculators do, the reluctance to offer is likely to continue.
