“Bitcoin Long-term holders are doubling down on their holdings despite facing historically some of the highest unrealised notional losses ever. Long-term holder supply is at all-time highs indicating significant accumulation at these price levels,” states CoinDCX’s Research Team in a statement shared with Gadgets 360.
“Apart from increased whale accumulation, the active addresses growth curve is making higher lows meaning that the network growth is on a steady long-term growth trajectory boosted by general adoption aided by Layer-2 solutions being built on top of the chain such as the lightning network that has partnered with small and large businesses alike to seamlessly facilitate instant payments around the clock leveraging Bitcoin as the core infrastructure.”
