Bitcoin (BTC) hitting three-month lows did not spur hodlers to panic sell, on-chain data shows.
On-chain losses “remain quiet”
The latest data covering on-chain transactions shows that in the midst of reactions to the Binance and Coinbase lawsuits, few were in “panic sell” mode.
A chart uploaded to Twitter by Glassnode showed realized losses — coins moving at a lower value than their previous transaction — staying cool.
This marked a shift in sentiment for the investor base as a whole, coming in stark contrast to the events that followed the implosion of exchange FTX in late 2022.
“Following a crescendo in US regulatory pressure on major cryptocurrency Exchanges Binance and Coinbase, the market experienced significantly volatile moves in both directions,” Coinglass reported.
“However, the magnitude of Realized Losses recorded On-Chain remains quiet at $112M. This remains -$3.05B (-96.5%) smaller than the largest recorded capitulation event, suggesting an increased degree of resilience amongst market participants.”
For context, the FTX event sparked $145 billion in realized losses — over 10 times the June 5 tally.
Exchange BTC traders not rushing for the exit
The latest data available covering exchange balances tells a similar story of resilience.
This totaled around 12,600 BTC, potentially indicating a similar lack of desire among users to remove their funds from hot wallets.
Compared to FTX, the situation once again stands out, as mass exchange withdrawals characterized much of last November.
