Share this article

  • Accumulation of Bitcoin continued despite price declines.
  • BTC has kept on with its decline for the third consecutive day.

The period leading up to and following the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF witnessed significant volatility, prompting discussions about price movements and holders’ behavior. Despite the price fluctuations, there has been a sustained accumulation of Bitcoin by various entities.

Bitcoin’s Accumulation Trend Score hovers around one

An analysis of the Bitcoin Accumulation Trend Score on Glasnode showed a remarkable consistency over the past four months. The score has consistently hovered close to one and reached one each of these months.

This level of stability in the trend score is noteworthy. It marked the first time it has exhibited such consistency in years, as indicated by the chart analysis.

This consistent trend score gains added significance considering the increased volatility observed in Bitcoin’s price during this period.

The Accumulation Trend Score serves as an indicator reflecting the proportional size of entities actively accumulating coins on-chain. A score closer to 1 suggests that, on average, larger entities or a significant portion of the network are accumulating Bitcoin.

By the conclusion of 31st January, this number had decreased to around 16 million. At the time of this writing, the figure stands at 16.1 million. This decline also corresponds to a decrease in the percentage of the supply in profit, dropping from around 86.7% to about 82%.
