  • Bitcoin’s UTXO hit 82% in profit, on-chain data disclosed.
  • The BTC premium was in high demand as derivatives market interest increased.

Over 80% of the Bitcoin [BTC] Unspent Transaction Output [UTXO] hit profit levels, according to CryptoQuant analyst Vadym_Za.

The UTXO is a fundamental element of the Bitcoin network, which defines where a transaction starts and finishes. It also describes discrete BTC pieces that can act as input in a new transaction.

The journey to this milestone was a result of BTC’s performance over the last few days. Since putting up a 40% increase in January, the coin had slowed down the momentum as the second month began. However, the surge above $24,000— a 50% value increase since the new year, was vital to the UTXO gains.

Deposit the recently hit landmark, some analysts are of the opinion that there was more uptick to come. Bitcoin’s firm believer and crypto strategic Advisor Ash WSB tweeted that the coin had the potential to cross $25,000 before the week comes to a halt.

Pointing to the 50 and 200 weekly Moving Average (MA), the trader opined that the biggest one-day rally could be surpassed again.

For the time being, optimism was high among traders in the derivatives market. According to CryptoQuant’s analysis, the Open Interest (OI) towards BTC has been primarily high.  

Funding rates have also not been left as most positions opened seemed to support a BTC long. The CryptoQuant publication opined, 

“Funding rates have been predominantly positive so far this year, demonstrating the willingness of traders to go long bitcoin.”
