A possible reason for this increased holding could be the upcoming halving in 2024. This seems to be the case as, post-halving, BTC will become scarcer as fewer coins will be produced.
In addition, long-term holders’ confidence in the king coin was finally paying off, as BTC rallied substantially over the last few days.
Notably, over the last 24 hours, BTC’s price spiked by more than 10%. At the time of writing, it was trading at $33,737.90 with a market capitalization of over $659 billion. As per metrics, investors still continued to stockpile more BTC as its exchange reserve was declining.
As per CryptoQuant, investors in the derivatives market were also following a similar trend of accumulation, which was evident from its green Funding Rate and Taker Buy-Sell Ratio.
Thanks to the price uptick, sentiment around BTC has also turned in the buyers’ favor. LunarCrush’s data clearly revealed that BTC’s social engagement spiked by over 144% in just the last 24 hours. Bullish sentiment around the coin also went up by 40%.
Another bullish metric was BTC’s Altrank, which improved over the last day.

Like LTHs, miners were also enjoying profits in recent days, which was quite evident from Glassnode’s data.
