Bitcoin Adoption: Long-Term BTC Holders Increase as Market to Closely Watch Inflation Data – Report

Matteo Greco, Research Analyst at the publicly listed digital asset and fintech investment business Fineqia International, has shared insights on the latest developments in the Bitcoin (BTC) and digital assets markets.

Analyzing BTC supply, Greco notes that approximately 68.5% of “the total circulating supply has remained untouched for at least one year, nearing its highest level.” Additionally, BTC’s hashrate, “indicating the computational power on the blockchain network, has reached an all-time high on a 7-day moving average.”

Greco added that these statistics “underscore Bitcoin’s resilience.”

As noted in the update, long-term holders are “increasing in number, reflecting a shift toward holding the asset for longer-term appreciation rather than speculative purposes.”

Simultaneously, the heightened competition “among miners, despite an impending halving of mining rewards in a few months, demonstrates a strong commitment to securing the network and being profitable in doing it.”

On a macroeconomic scale, the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) data “for September, which will be released on Thursday, is expected to show a 3.6% inflation rate, slightly down from August’s 3.7%.”

Market participants do “not anticipate further rate hikes by the Federal Reserve (FED) and predict an 78.9% probability of maintaining the current interest rates.”

Bitcoin (BTC) closed the previous week “at around $27,900, marking a 0.3% decrease compared to its closing value of $28,000 in the preceding week. BTC’s price demonstrated stability, briefly touching $27,160 midweek before rebounding to around $27,500, ultimately approaching the $28,000 mark over the weekend.”

Greco added that BTC continues “to exhibit strength compared to other digital assets, with its dominance increasing by 0.5% for the second consecutive week.”

The Bitcoin dominance, which “measures the relationship between Bitcoin’s market capitalization and the total digital asset market capitalisation, presently stands at 50.9%.”

This marks a steep “increase from 50.4% a week ago and 49.9% two weeks ago.”

BTC’s price stability paired “with increasing dominance signal a less favourable week for alternative digital assets.”

Greco added that this pattern is “corroborated by the Total3 metric, reflecting the overall market capitalization of digital assets excluding Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), which decreased from $334.7 billion to $327.3 billion at the beginning of the previous week.”

Turning to trading volume, the cumulative spot volume “on centralized exchanges, assessed over a 7-day moving average, reached $12.34 billion from October 2nd to October 8th.”

Greco concluded that this signifies “a notable uptick in trading activity compared to any point in the four previous weeks, halting a three-month trend of declining trading activity.”
