Optimism seems to be prevailing in the market right now, as Bitcoin’s (BTC) unrealized net loss (which measures the net loss of an asset relative to its circulating supply) has been rising recently.
If this metric hits new all-time highs alongside a rise in BTC price, it could be a sign of a bullish trend.
According to CryptoQuant’s on-chain data, Bitcoin: Net Unrealized Profit/Loss (NUPL) stood at around 0.38.
CryptoQuant indicates the Bitcoin NUPL indicates:
Net unrealized profit/loss (NUPL) is the difference between the market capitalization and the realized market capitalization divided by the market capitalization.
Assuming that the recent coin movement is the result of purchases, NUPL represents the total amount of gains and losses across all coins as a percentage.
This can be interpreted as the percentage of investors who made a profit.
A value above ‘0’ indicates that investors are making a profit, and an increasing trend in the value means that more investors are starting to make a profit.
This stage indicates increasing selling pressure as there are more reasons to realize profits.
The NUPL indicator can be used to understand the dynamics of rising and falling prices and identify the best time to buy or sell. It can also help you make investment decisions by providing objective data about market conditions during the process of adjusting your portfolio.
NUPL is the difference between market capitalization and realized market capitalization divided by market capitalization, and is used as a metric to measure the percentage of investors who are currently making a profit. A positive metric means that investors are making money, and an increasing trend indicates that more investors are entering a profitable state.
Short-term holders (those who have held for less than 6 months) with a NUPL value greater than 0 are likely to sell their Bitcoin to realize a profit, meaning that the current price is higher than the average unit price at which they purchased their Bitcoin. Conversely, if a short-term holder (holder for less than 6 months) has a NUPL value less than 0, they may sell Bitcoin to realize a loss. This means that the current price is lower than the average unit price at which they purchased their Bitcoin.
