Bitcoin’s wild ride this month has understandably left some investors jittery. After setting a new high above $64,000, BTC suddenly plunged to around $47,000 before inching back up to 55196 at the time of writing based on Coinmarketcap data.

Bitcoin’s huge price fluctuations this month have shaken out a lot of traders. However, it appears that the correction mostly rattled short-term BTC traders while those who held the crypto for longer periods of time were relatively unmoved by the price movement.

“Both on-chain transaction volume and fees peaked to new all-time highs this week whilst the typical age of spent coins has fallen back to levels not seen since price was below $20k,” Glassnode wrote in a report published on Monday. “Overall this suggests this correction has largely affected relatively newer entrants to the market and strong hands remain strong.”

Specifically, Glassnode pointed out that only a very small portion of Bitcoins bought more than a month ago, called “old cons” in the report, changed hands. “Investigating the Spent Output Age bands, we can establish a view on the typical age brackets for coins spent this week,” Glassnode wrote. “It can be seen that coins older than 1-month represent a very small and declining proportion of the total transaction flow.”

On the other hand, the blockchain analytics firm noted that an increase in transactions using “young coins,” or BTC held for less than a week before being sold or spent. “Conversely, the number of young coins (< 1-week old) being spent have seen an uptick towards the end of the week suggesting newer market entrants were shaken out during this correction,” the company added.

The report also pointed out that older coins remain unaffected the most. “Notably, coins older than 6-months have not seen a meaningful increase in spending since the correction back in February,” the firm said.

According to the report, this trend could suggest that those who have invested in Bitcoin for a longer period of time remain confident of its future potential. “This downtrend in Average Spent Output Lifespan (ASOL) has persisted since mid-January suggesting that old hands remain confident despite volatility and higher prices creating incentive to take profits,” Glassnode said.

A common misperception is that lost or stolen bitcoin is gone forever. without knowing that, as Blockchain Forensics Continues to Evolve, Identifying, Tracing and Recovering Stolen, Hacked or Scammed Crypto Assets may have already become easier than traditional asset recovery. as easy as it is ONLY A Very Very few Professional Recovery Experts and Hackers can get this type of job done, TO Perform or Invest and hold a certain Amount of Bitcoin you have to verify your Identity as Required by the Law. A few Expert have found a way to exploit this Verification and use it to their advantage to Trace and identify Bitcoin wallet and the Identity of the person who owns the Wallet which Victims sent Bitcoin or other Crypto Asset to.
IF You ever lost your funds to an investment scam, Bitcoin Mining Scam or any Type of Scam what you need to do is Hire a Professional to get the job done. Also be very careful of who you hire to get the job done, as MORE Than 95% of people who claim they can Recover Lost, Stolen, Hacked, or Scammed Bitcoin are all Scammers themselves trying to rip you of Whatever is remaining of your Hard Earn Money WHICH was lost to Scammers.
If you ever need to HÏŘË a professional to help you recover your bitcoin or funds either stolen, HÄČKËD or ŠČÄMMËD, simply send an ema!| to ‘’FÅSTŘËČÕVËŘÝ02 HÃŤ GMÃÍĹ ČÕMË’’ . he is a professional recovery agent who recently recovered 500,000USD worth of Bitcoin Stolen from a friends wallet. he does not charge a penny until after the job is done. he has been tested and Trusted by Several Victims of investment scam i know.
