The recent bear market rally sold off from $24.5k down to below $18.5k, plunging a significant volume of short-term holder supply back into an unrealized loss,” Glassnode noted. </p><p>“All in all, the primary factors influencing the current market structure appear to be these short-term holders, who are jostling for the best entry price, and what little profit is available to take. The sensitivity and conviction of these investors within the volatile macroeconomic environment is a key factor in near-term market direction. Long-Term Holders have experienced a significant wash-out already and generally shift towards keeping coins dormant during these phases,” the report added.</p>
