Data from Glassnode reveals Bitcoin hasn’t but seen a crossover within the present cycle that has traditionally marked late-bear durations.
Bitcoin Short-Term Holder Realized Price Is Still Above Long-Term Holder’s
According to the newest weekly report from Glassnode, the STH and LTH realized worth crossover hasn’t but taken place throughout the present bear market.

This reveals that the market has gone by way of a deep capitulation occasion.
During the present bear market, nonetheless, the crypto is but to see any such crossover, even after already observing 10 months of decline.
The submit crossover bear interval lasted for 339 days in 2014-15, whereas it was 145 days for 2018-19. This would counsel that the present bear will nonetheless have some time to go earlier than a bull market can begin because the crossover hasn’t even occurred but.
The report notes that on the tempo the 2 metrics are approaching one another, this cross will possible happen this month.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s worth floats round $22.5k, up 13% within the final week. Over the previous month, the crypto has misplaced 7% in worth.
