Despite experiencing a serious sell-off over the last few days, long-term holders seem to be firm and continue to HODL. According to Glassnode’s on-chain data, this cohort continues to accumulate. Bitcoin is currently on a rebound. 

BTC’s first resistance remains around $45,300. If Bitcoin price breaks through this level again, it could re-establish an upward path. The daily chart shows Bitcoin testing near $40,000 for the third time in a row. Bears are still unable to push BTC below this level, indicating that this position has become a stage bottom. However, both bears and bulls will not easily give in.
