Quick fact: It should be noted that BTC is not really anonymous because all BTC transactions are kept permanently and publicly on the blockchain or ledger system, so it’s very easy for anyone to see the transactions and balance of any BTC address.
A couple of weeks ago, Chainalysis researchers explained in detail that as the rush for BTCs keeps increasing, the price will most definitely be affected. The report said:
“With more people looking to trade BTCs, which is only becoming scarcer following the recent halving, bitcoin moving from the investment bucket into the trading bucket could become a crucial source of liquidity. However, one would expect this will only happen if bitcoin’s price rises to a level at which long-term investors are willing to sell.”
The report claims that the Hodler net position change, which provides an aggregate of long-term wallet holder behaviour, has been positive on 154 of the first 170 days of 2020. Glassnode data shows that Hodlers have made a net increase of 233,000 BTC to their positions since the start of the year.
Meanwhile, BTC difficulty has hit a new all-time-high of 17,345,948,872,516 (+9.89%).
