In a noticeable shift, long-term holders who have retained Bitcoin for more than 155 days have likely begun to realize profits. Over the past two days, the profit-taking actions by this group have approached roughly $225 million. While this figure appears significant compared to the trend observed in 2023, it’s important to note that long-term holders continue to hodl their Bitcoin positions, suggesting a sustained confidence in the long-term value of the digital asset.
