Bitcoin price has been on a downtrend for 2 months and failed to hold upside momentum, with bulls turning weak. Bitcoin on-chain data reveals long-term holders (LTH) are currently not selling following a peak at Bitcoin all-time high.

Long-Term Bitcoin Holders Remain Bullish

CryptoQuant verified on-chain analyst Axel Adler Jr in a post on X on May 11 shared a key on-chain metric indicating that long-term holders are not currently their holdings. Bitcoin price has struggled to recover fully due to macroeconomic concerns such as Fed rate cut jitters.

The smart money are looking to enter Bitcoin at the local bottom. “They currently have a lot of cash, around 1.3 million BTC,” he added.

Furthermore, he believes it is the perfect time for a deep correction to filter out all the non-serious crypto investors. Short Term-Holders (STH) had three major profit-taking events at levels 28K, 44K, and 72K, but there was only deep correction in August-September last year.

May has key events next week such as PPI, CPI and Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s speech.

Ethereum and other altcoins also fell 2-4%. The recent fall raised doubts about the crypto market recovery later this year.
