This culminated in a long-term holder supply of 14.47 million, which was nearly 20,000 BTC shy of the ATH value of 14.49 million.
Interestingly, oinonen_t, an author and analyst at CryptoQuant, pointed out that BTC was in the pre-halving accumulation stage. As the halving is scheduled to happen next year, investors’ expectations for the coin are increasing, resulting in high accumulation.
As per the analysis, Bitcoin’s path is currently supported by multiple macro-level factors. First, the king coin has shifted from a distribution cycle to a pre-halving accumulation cycle, looking towards the spring 2024 halving.
The report also mentioned that Bitcoin was being uplifted by reflexivity – the leading cryptocurrency correlates with stocks like Coinbase, which has strengthened 138% this year.
Should investors expect another Bitcoin rally?
The accumulation showed its effects on BTC’s price as it went above $31,000. As per CoinMarketCap, at the time of writing, the king of cryptos was trading at $31,011.77 with a market capitalization of more than $602 billion.
A look at the coin’s on-chain metrics suggested that the possibility of a further uptrend could not be ruled out as the bulls seem to be dominant in the market.
