Interest in Inscriptions rises

One of the primary reasons for the high activity on the network is the surge of interest in Bitcoin Inscriptions. Dune Analytics’ data revealed that the number of daily inscriptions experienced a significant increase from 150,000 to 200,000 over the last few days.

Moreover, an overwhelming majority of the inscription activity stems from the demand for text-based inscriptions, which accounts for approximately 90% of the overall activity.

Coupled with the increasing interest in Inscriptions, there has been a notable surge in the interest in holding Bitcoin. Glassnode’s data indicates that the number of non-zero addresses reached an all-time high on 28 May.

Additionally, the MVRV ratio of Bitcoin, which measures the average profit or loss of all holders, declined. This suggested that Bitcoin holders were becoming less profitable. If this trend continues, it could potentially lead to a decrease in selling pressure from holders.

While these developments bode well for Bitcoin, some cautionary signs have also emerged. The long/short difference of BTC has been decreasing, indicating that the number of new addresses were outnumbering the old addresses.

It is worth noting that new addresses are more likely to sell their holdings, potentially causing price fluctuations and challenges for Bitcoin’s stability in the future.

This increase indicates a growing bullish sentiment among investors, possibly driven by positive market indicators and the prospect of future price appreciation.
