As the price of Bitcoin [BTC] seeks stability, certain holders have remained steadfast, unaffected by the market’s volatility. How have they performed with their holdings?

Bitcoin HODLed across different age bands

According to the analysis on Glassnode, Bitcoin holders across various age bands have demonstrated strong conviction in retaining their assets.

The data showed that 69.6% of holders in the one-year age band have maintained their positions, while the figure stands at 56.4% in the two-year band.

Additionally, the analysis showed that the three-year age band consists of 43.5% of holders, and the five-year age band comprises 31.5%.

Furthermore, it is noteworthy that the supply held within these age bands remains below the all-time high.

How Bitcoin has fared across different MVRV periods

The various Bitcoin Market Value to Realized (MVRV) metrics analysis showed a consistent trend—all MVRVs analyzed were above zero. This showed that holders across the one to five-year MVRV categories have generally been holding their assets at a profit, with some variation in the profit.

Specifically, the 365-day MVRV was about 25.4% at the time of this writing. This implied that holders in this category held their assets with a profit of over 25%.

Notably, this band has been profitable since August 2023, reaching its peak around December, when it climbed to almost 51%.
