As per the chart, there was a remarkable increase in shrimp holdings – over 24,600 BTC. Surprisingly, only 4.3% trading days (224 out of 5,226) saw a greater expansion in holdings.

As of this writing, shrimps held a significant supply of approximately 1.3 million BTC, marking an all-time high for their holdings. This accounted for over 6% of the total Bitcoin supply. Impressively, the Yearly Absorption Rates for this group have consistently remained positive since its inception.

Furthermore, shrimps were experiencing an unprecedented surge in relative balance growth at press time, with an absorption rate equivalent to 105% of the yearly issuance. It’s important to note that Bitcoin shrimps are retail BTC holders with less than one BTC.
