As The World Heaves, HODLers Hold

Plus a lot of confusion around the stock market's (non) reaction

Happy (?) Monday, Blockfolians

The Lede

First up, we want to recognize how difficult a time this is. We are living through a generationally significant upheaval, and doing so as every different group in power is trying to warp the narrative to fit their agenda. In times like these, spending time thinking about anything else can be extremely difficult. Do what you need to take care of yourself and those around you. For our part, we’ll try to be useful and distracting with the most interesting news and commentary we can find.

Okay, with that in mind, check out this interesting analysis from Glassnode. Apparently, 60% of the supply of bitcoin hasn’t moved in over a year. The last time we saw these levels was just before the bull market in 2017.

It’s impossible to deny that there is a clear narrative relevance for bitcoin right now. Expressed in the positive by people like Paul Tudor Jones getting involved and in the inverse by Wealth Management at Goldman Sachs presumably getting enough interest that they felt they had to hold a webinar to deny the bitcoin thesis.

It’s important to come to your own conclusions about why different signals are telling you what they’re telling you, but we’d be lying if we said this one wasn’t interesting.
