Bitcoin short-term holders cruise into profit

New data from Glassnode revealed that the recent surge in Bitcoin’s price has brought about a wave of triumph for short-term holders. The leap from approximately $25,000 to beyond $30,000 has pushed many of these holders into a profitable position.

To be precise, over 66.4% of short-term holder coins, amounting to a staggering 1.8 million, have now found themselves in profit. This surge has elevated the profitable short-term holder supply percentage to 96.9%, equivalent to roughly 2.6 million BTC.
