The number of BTC “hodlers” is increasing as fast as it did in the spring of 2021. When the asset first reached $64,000.
The number of long-term Bitcoin holders earlier this year is growing at its fastest pace since spring 2021. When the BTC exchange rate first rose to $64,000. The growth in the number of “hodlers” may be due to the fact that more and more traders stop operations and decide to just keep the asset.
Since the beginning of this year, Bitcoin’s exchange rate has increased by 71%. The asset was trading at $16.5 thousand on January 31, while on April 10, its price was around $28.3 thousand. The maximum value for this period was $29.1 thousand, which BTC crossed on March 30 for the first time since June 2022.
During the 2021 Bitcoin rally, the number of BTC holders rose from about 34 million to 39 million. The growth rate then slowed. And by early 2023, that number had risen to about 44 million. But then the number of “hodlers” started growing faster again. And by April, it exceeded 46.1 million.
Our experts note that over the past 24 hours, BTC rose in price by 6%, to $30 thousand. Following the first cryptocurrency, prices for other digital assets are increasing.
