What is the general sentiment for Crypto?
The sentiment towards the cryptocurrency market is in the fear zone. Compared to last week’s, the Fear & Greed Index has changed from “26” to “27”.
Another data to evaluate the sentiment of the general public would be to look at Spent Output Profit Ratio (SOPR). What is SOPR? In layman terms, it indicates if people have sold their BTC at a profit or if they sold at a loss. An SOPR value above 1 indicates that profit booking dominated loss booking and below 1 indicates that loss booking dominated profit booking. A value of 1 indicates that the coins were sold at their purchase price. Adjusted SOPR filters out transactions that are younger than 1 hour, thus, clearing out noise from the metric.
aSOPR for this week stands at 0.96 which means the coins on average are being sold near their purchase price
Is This The End of the Bear Market?
CVDD & Balanced Price
CVDD stands for Cumulative Value Coin Days Destroyed. When coins are sent between wallets, the transaction has:
That value is Coin Days Destroyed (CDD).
CVDD tracks the cumulative sum of this value-time destruction as coins move from old hands into new hands as a ratio of the market age. It is then multiplied by 6 million, which is a somewhat arbitrary number as it is not linked to any relevant Bitcoin data.
BALANCED PRICE is an on-chain indicator used for Bitcoin price prediction at the bear market lows. This means that it is trying to identify the lowest price that Bitcoin may drop to in the future. It uses inputs that we have already explained in the sections above. It is calculated by subtracting Transferred Price from Realized Price.
Historically whenever Balanced price crossed down CVDD, bottom formation was seen. We are expecting Bitcoin to bottom as the same pattern has formed on the chart.
Realized price is defined as the average cost of acquisition based on every coin moved on-chain. In all the previous bear markets we see that the price trades below the realized price which indicates on average the coins held during this period have higher cost of acquisition than the current market price. Realized prices act as psychological support areas during bear markets.
The current price of Bitcoin is trading below the realized price of Bitcoin of 20,043 USD. For bull market confirmation, the market price of Bitcoin should be above realized price.
The MVRV, Z-score has historically been very effective in identifying periods where market value is moving unusually high above realized value. These periods are highlighted by the z-score (red line) entering the pink box and indicating the top of market cycles. It has been able to pick the market high of each cycle within two weeks.
It also shows when market value is far below realized value, highlighted by z-score entering the green box. Buying Bitcoin during these periods has historically produced outsized returns.
Currently, the metric stands at 0.85 in the green box, which means that the market is undervalued and buying BTCin green box produced outsized returns in past
