HODLers are frequently linked to currency dormancy. However, the Bitcoin network is currently experiencing greater activity. In its most recent weekly analysis, Glassnode states that organic transaction counts have reached over 270K/day and are on the verge of reaching cycle highs on a monthly average. The growth of ordinal inscriptions has crossed the one million mark, and monetary transfers are connected to this.
Although there is more activity on Bitcoin, more people are hoarding BTC coins, as Glassnode recently noted that the percentage of the total supply that has been active over the past five years has just reached an all-time high of 28.58%.
Based on the on-chain analysis, Bitcoin occupies a rather neutral space, producing a supply cluster between $16K and $25K, where a sizable amount of coin volume is traded.
