Values lower than 1 imply that holders had been at a loss when the output transaction occurred. Sell stress mounts when the metric suggests most holders are in revenue.
According to Rafael Schultze-Kraft, Bitcoin’s dip from highs of $38,000 to help at $28,800 “isn’t a surprise“. Rafael, who’s the CTO of Glassnode, says that at present, the SOPR is overextended and transferring in direction of 1. The metric thus means that much less BTC is transferring on-chain as some holders promote at “excessive income“.
