Bitcoin has achieved a new high in market value
Bitcoin has achieved market capitalization (Realized Cap) is CoinMetrics concept (referred to as CM) raised its price at the time the index a recent move is calculated by using every bit money supply. Market Capitalization is the market value , derived from stocks. It refers to the stock’s liquidity multiplied by the recent price. It is a commonly used concept in CoinMarketCap (CMC).
The realized market value more accurately reflects the market value of Bitcoin because it considers the final price of all transactions on the chain, not just the most recently traded Bitcoin. It can be regarded as a more ” real ” long-term measure of the value of Bitcoin , and its market value fluctuates up and down according to the prevailing market sentiment.
As of November 18, BTC has achieved a market value of nearly 130 billion US dollars , reaching 129,127,201,358 US dollars, continuing to hit a record high.
The number of active addresses on the chain fluctuates up
The number of active addresses refers to the number of different addresses where transactions occur daily (including the address where the first transaction occurred). The number of active addresses reflects the activity of market transactions to a certain extent, and is an important reference data for judging the number of Bitcoin audiences and currency price trends.
From the data point of view, the popularity of the Bitcoin chain has always fluctuated upward. So far, the number of active Bitcoin addresses has reached the highest number of 1,201,530, a 64% increase from the beginning of 2019 .
The number of Bitcoin “giant whales” increases
Since 2019, the number of addresses holding 1,000 bitcoins has increased by 389, and the number of addresses holding 10,000 bitcoins has increased by 22.
The number of bitcoin ” giant whales ” (holding more than 1,000 bitcoins) has always been at a historical high in the near future, and the most recent historical high is 2,348 set on November 16 .
Active transactions on the Bitcoin chain
From the perspective of on- chain transaction volume , the overall transaction volume on the Bitcoin network in 2020 will exceed 2019. In 2019, the transaction volume on the Bitcoin chain exceeded $673 billion. As of mid-November 2020, the transaction volume on the Bitcoin chain has approached $750 billion .
In addition, from the transaction volume of a single month in 2020, it can be seen that the transaction confidence in the Bitcoin market is relatively sufficient after the halving, and the transaction volume on the chain has gradually increased. As Bitcoin has continuously broken through the integer barriers of 16,000, 17,000 and even 18,000 in the recent past, the on-chain transaction volume this month has reached US$ 74.8 billion , which is expected to exceed the height of US$ 93.5 billion in July 2019.
The difficulty of the whole network once reached 20T
After the third Bitcoin halving , some people are worried that Bitcoin miners will enter a death spiral, that is, the decline in miners’ income will lead to the shutdown of mining machines, which will reduce the computing power. The reduction in computing power will further affect the price and cause more mines. The machine is turned off. But in fact, after a brief decrease in the difficulty of Bitcoin mining in early June, the computing power has been rising all the way, and the difficulty of mining has reached the highest value in history of 20T .
The increase in the difficulty of Bitcoin mining means the increase in computing power (that is, the hash rate). The reason for the increase in computing power is the comprehensive influence of many factors. The summary is nothing more than two aspects: First, the distribution of more miners The mining machine was turned on for mining. Second, the miners updated the mining machine with higher computing power . The investment in the mining sector is large and the payback period is long. No matter what factor is affecting the increase in computing power, it points to the conclusion that miners are optimistic about the mining and Bitcoin market in the long run.
DeFi further expands Bitcoin’s ecology
With liquid mining and other new features of open finance, DeFi has ignited the passion of the crypto asset industry. From the data point of view, the monthly growth of Bitcoin anchor currency is obvious. Especially in September 2020, the DeFi ecosystem has flowed into nearly 69,000 Bitcoins . Although it has declined recently, with the help of Bitcoin’s own user scale, holdings and transaction volume, as well as network effects, Bitcoin is anchored Coin is destined to develop in the future DeFi ecosystem.
In addition, the current Bitcoin in the DeFi ecosystem only accounts for about 0.8% of the Bitcoin circulation , and the Bitcoin-anchored currency project on Ethereum has been in a state of steady growth. More and more traditional institutions and large participants are Through it to participate in the DeFi market. As long as there are no black swan incidents like quotations or hackers, and the continued development of ecology and applications, the ecology of Bitcoin and Ethereum will benefit from it.
Bitcoin MVRV shows bullishness
MVRV is Bitcoin market value (Market Value) and to value ratio (Realized Value) of. The latter can reflect the universal value consensus of market participants in a particular period, that is, ” fair price .” As a result, MVRV can express the ratio of market price to “fair price”: a larger value indicates that the current price of Bitcoin is overestimated, and a higher probability of price decline; a lower value indicates that its price is underestimated and a higher probability of price increase.
When the MVRV is below 3-3.5 , the market price is lower than its “fair value”, and Bitcoin has good room for appreciation. In the first quarter of 2019 and March 2020, MVRV once fell by 1, indicating that the market value of Bitcoin at that time was less than the “fair value” and its price was strongly undervalued. So then we also saw a sharp increase in the price of Bitcoin. As of now, Bitcoin MVRV has not touched the previous high in June 2019, and its price still has room to rise.
Meyer multiples prove market optimism
Mayer Multiple (Mayer Multiple) is an analytical indicator that measures the current price and historical trend of Bitcoin, which is derived from the current price of Bitcoin/MA200 (200-day average).
Under normal circumstances, the Bitcoin Meyer multiple is usually seen as a signal that the bull market opens . If it breaks 1, it indicates that the market is optimistic and the Bitcoin price is bullish. Conversely, if the Meyer multiple is below 1, it means that the market is relatively negative.

However, if the Mayer multiple reaches 2.4, it means that the market bubble is serious and the risk of collapse is increased. In June 2019, the Bitcoin price reached its annual high of US$13,764, and then fell into a downward trend. At that time, the Bitcoin Meyer multiple was 2.4.
After the plunge in March this year, the Bitcoin Meyer multiple once fell back to 0.574, and then broke through 1 on April 29, and it also started this year’s strong rise with a single-day increase of 16.1%. As of November 18, 2020, the Bitcoin Meyer multiple is 1.63 .
