Metrics indicate bullish sentiment as illiquid Bitcoin supply reaches 80%

BTC MVRV-Z since 2010

CryptoSlate analysis of Bitcoin (BTC) metrics reveals that the market bottom may have been reached as investors continue accumulating BTC and pushing illiquid supply up to 80%.

Analysts reviewed metrics, including the MVRV-Z and Realized Price metrics, to discover both indicate bullish sentiments.

MVRV-Z metric

The MVRV-Z score is used to assess whether BTC is over or under-valued. When the market value is significantly higher than BTC’s “fair value,” the metric stays in the red zone. On the other hand, if the price is lower than BTC’s realized value, the metric lingers around in the green area. The chart below represents the MVRV-Z metric with the orange line.

The metric entered the green zone in mid-2022, right after the LUNA collapse, and has been moving within the green area since then. It only broke through very recently, which might signal that the market bottom has been reached.

Historically, Bitcoin’s price has significantly decreased whenever the MVRV-Z metric reached the red zone. According to the chart, this correlation has been visible six times since 2010. Therefore, it is possible to conclude that the MVRV-Z metric indicates a market top if it is in the red zone.

Similarly, historical evidence also shows that Bitcoin’s price increases after the metric reaches the green zone, indicating a market bottom. The price movements recorded in early 2012, 2015, 2019, and 2020 correspond to market bottoms.

BTC realized price

The realized price is calculated by dividing the realized cap by the current supply. The metric signifies a bear market when the actual price falls below the realized price. Conversely, if the real price increases above the realized price, it indicates a bull market.

However, this balance changed very recently as the actual price surpassed the realized price, which indicates a bull market sentiment.

80% of BTC is illiquid

Investors have been accumulating BTC over the past few months. However, cCyptoSlate analysis from Dec. 13, 2022, revealed that the amount of BTC that sat on exchanges had hit its all-time low since 2018.
