  • Bitcoin holders stay put despite high market volatility.
  • Bitcoin inscriptions contribute massively to the fees generated by miners, offsetting some selling pressure.

According to data provided by Anthony Pompliano, the founder of Morgan Creek Digital, more than 50% of all BTC supply hasn’t moved in the last two years. This indicated that many addresses have resisted the urge to sell their Bitcoin as prices have surged.

 

Under pressure?

However, the tides could turn against Bitcoin soon with the arrival of selling pressure.

One factor that could increase selling pressure on Bitcoin is the miner revenue which has been falling over the last few weeks.


As mining difficulty rises, and energy costs increase, a decline in mining revenue would force miners to sell their BTC to stay afloat.

Some relief

However, the popularity of Bitcoin Inscriptions and Ordinals may provide some relief to these miners in the future.

According to Messari’s data, Bitcoin’s Inscriptions have started to contribute almost 30% to fees being generated on the Bitcoin network.

Interest in Bitcoin NFTs has also remained stable as showcased by the high NFT trade count on the Bitcoin network.

But the frequency with which large transactions were being made in the Bitcoin NFT space had declined. Relatively smaller transactions which were less than $1,000 were more prominent on the network.

This indicated that there was a high retail interest in Bitcoin’s NFT market, at the time of writing, and the NFT volume wasn’t being driven by a select few large addresses and transactions.
