Bitcoin On-Chain Analysis: HODL Waves
Occasionally we must put on our on-chain analysis hat and discuss metrics such as HODL waves for #Bitcoin. These are useful for identifying trends in long-term and short-term holders.
Reading from the bottom of the chart up, the red colored bands show the percent of supply that has been active relatively recently, ranging from less than a day to 90-180 days. The “1-7 Days” band is the percent of total supply that’s been held for at least 1 day but less than 7 days, “7-30 Days” is the percent of supply that’s been held for at least 7 days but less than 30 days, and so on. Conversely, reading from the top of the chart down shows the supply that has not moved for relatively long periods. These long-term bands tend to grow wider as prices reach cycle lows and contract during cycle tops as long-terms holders begin to sell.
