As of this writing, this metric stood at 61. This spike signified a notable increase in substantial BTC transactions amid the ongoing decline. Although, the direction of these transactions remained ambiguous.

Furthermore, BTC’s transaction volume exhibited a more gradual yet discernible increase. Examining the transaction volume metric, there was a slight upward trend. At press time, the transaction volume surpassed the $3 billion mark. This escalation in transaction volume indicated that major stakeholders were actively moving assets as market polarization intensified.

Supply on exchanges slides to record low

Amidst the price decline and the spread of fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD), a noteworthy shift in Bitcoin’s movement was observed as holders moved their coins off exchanges. As of this writing, the percentage of Bitcoin held on exchanges stood at approximately 6.4%. This exchange level marked a significant milestone for BTC, as it had not been witnessed in over five years.

The movement of these coins away from exchanges served as a bullish indicator, suggesting that holders were confident of a future price surge.
