Bitcoin (BTC) Miner Position Turns Positive
The latest report from Glassnode states that the Bitcoin “Miner net position change metric flashing green, indicating miners are holding onto newly mined coins”.
The Bitcoin hash rate has also touched a new all-time high. It shows that miners are currently not liquidating their Bitcoins to buy new mining rigs. Rather they are purchasing it through cash at the moment.
Also, the adjusted SOPR (aSOPR) indicator from Glassnode suggests that there’s reduced profit-taking at this stage. It means that the buyer confidence in the market remains thereby hinting at an upcoming bull run.
