Crypto Market Dominance
What is the general sentiment for Crypto?
The sentiment towards the cryptocurrency market is in the fear zone and compared to last week’s, the Fear & Greed Index has not changed significantly and currently stands at “26”.
Another data to evaluate the sentiment of the general public would be to look at Spent Output Profit Ratio (SOPR). What is SOPR? In laymen terms, it indicates if people have sold 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.
The aSOPR for this week currently stands at 0.98 which means the coins on average are being sold at loss. Generally, we see that the metric value of 1 acts as resistance during bear market. For strong confirmation of trend reversal the metric should stay and oscillate above 1.
Are We Out Of The Bear Market?
The number of active addresses is directly proportional to the number of active users. It is important to note that the number of active addresses doesn’t give the exact number of active users as a user might have more than one address.
During a bull market, the number of active addresses increases tremendously and a sharp fall is experienced as prices begin to fall showing weaker hands leaving the market. Historically, we have seen the metric startes oscillating within a range after the fall in the bear market and increases sharply as the market prepares to move out of the bear phase. The current gain in price of Bitcoin hasn’t moved the metric exponentially. It is still moving sideways and thus, the metric doesn’t confirm trend reversal.
Exchange reserve is one of the important metrics to determine the potential number of coins with a high probability of getting spent in the market.
Exchange reserve increases: Liquid supply increases, selling pressure increases
Exchange reserve decreases: Illiquid supply increases, selling pressure decreases
C ompared to last week, the metric has slightly increased and the recent price gain of Bitcoin might increase the probability of investors booking profit.
MVRV ratio is equal to the market capital divided by realized capital of Bitcoin. Realized capital unlike market capital does not use the current market price, but rather uses the prices of each Bitcoin when they last moved.
So, for example if the price of most of the Bitcoin when they last moved was $10,000 and the current price is $60,000. Then the MVRV ratio would stand at 6. This means that the market is extremely heated and profit booking is likely. On the other hand, if the of most of the Bitcoin when they last moved was near the market price, then the CMP can be considered as the bottom.
Currently, the metric stands at 1 which acts as resistance in the bear market. If the metric stays above 1 and oscillates above it, we might see trend reversal.
Stablecoin Supply Ratio (SSR) is the ratio of market cap of BTC divided by the market cap of all stablecoins.
Currently, SSR is at its bottom which means potential buying area of Bitcoins.
