Bitcoin Miners’ Revenue Surges, Puell Multiple Reaches Mid-Region After 100-Day Rise
In a recent report by CryptoQuant, the Puell Multiple, a key metric used to gauge the profitability of Bitcoin miners, has reached the mid-region after a remarkable 100-day surge in the price of Bitcoin. The miners’ revenue has seen a significant increase from August 2023 to the end of the year, reaching the yellow line middle region of the Puell Multiple with a seven-day moving average (MA7d).
The last time this mid-region of the Puell Multiple was reached was in January 2021, coinciding with Bitcoin’s historic surge to $40,000 for the first time. This historical context adds weight to the current situation, raising questions about the potential implications for the cryptocurrency market.
The Puell Multiple is a metric designed to evaluate the profitability of Bitcoin miners and determine whether the network is expensive or cheap. Miners play a crucial role in the Bitcoin ecosystem, and analyzing the flow of their earnings can provide insights into the valuation of Bitcoin.
The metric takes into account the miners’ revenue in relation to the one-year moving average. A rising Puell Multiple suggests that miners are earning more in BTC terms, potentially signaling an overbought market, while a declining Puell Multiple could indicate a market correction.
The recent surge in miners’ revenue, as indicated by the Puell Multiple reaching the mid-region with MA7d, raises questions about the current valuation of Bitcoin. Despite the rise, the metric remains below the intermediate region, suggesting that the potential return compared to the risk is still favorable.
However, analysts caution that the Discount region could be revisited at any time. Even if the price doesn’t break the bullish structure and make a higher bottom, the significant capital in profit since the end of 2022 could trigger a deeper price correction.
For investors, understanding the Puell Multiple provides a valuable tool for assessing the potential risks and rewards in the Bitcoin market. The current favorable position of the metric indicates that, for now, the market may not be overbought. Nevertheless, vigilance is necessary as historical patterns suggest that a revisit to the Discount region could occur.
