Bitcoin short-term holder sales near $5B as profit-taking mimics 2021

The latest analysis points to a massive profit-taking event in the world of Bitcoin (BTC) that rivals its all-time highs of $69,000. James Van Straten, a research and data analyst at CryptoSlate, highlighted the movement of billions of dollars to exchanges in a December 5 post.

The recent price gains in BTC have rewarded long-term holders, but short-term holders have been busy cashing in on their investments. These short-term holders, defined as entities holding a given part of the supply for 155 days or less, have been preparing their coins for sale, totaling close to $5 billion in the four days leading up to December 4. This surge in profit realization from short-term holders has not been seen since November 2021.

This activity mirrors previous profit-taking trends from when BTC/USD reached its record levels two years ago at $69,000. In the current context, with BTC/USD up almost 15% in a week, it’s time for investors to reconsider their exposure.

Looking ahead, analysts are reevaluating the potential barriers in the ongoing Bitcoin bull market. Philip Swift, creator of statistics resource Look Into Bitcoin, has highlighted Fibonacci retracement levels that have played a role in previous bull markets. He emphasized the Golden Multiplier Ratio metric, which has historically identified every Bitcoin cycle high. The lower fibs have acted as resistance in early bull markets, with the x1.6 level currently at $43,739 and climbing.
