On-chain data shows that Bitcoin BTC/USD holders have reached historically high pain thresholds in terms of realized losses.
What Happened: According to on-chain analytics firm Glassnode, the current market conditions have resulted in realized losses hitting a new all-time high.
Over the last week, realized losses hit an all-time high of $7.325 billion and market-wide losses exceeded $2.4 billion per day.
According to Glassnode analysts, both long term and short term holders are now at a loss and holding coins below their average cost basis.
They noted that all the previous instances where these cohorts are at an unrealized loss have coincided only with late-stage bear market capitulations, providing confluence with the above profitability metrics.
“The current market has this metric [net flows] returning a -2.8% net outflow which is similar to the post-COVID crash outflows,” stated the analysts.
“As such, despite heavy downside price action, exchange balances saw a net balance depletion at a rate of 2.8% of the total this week.”
