Research by on-chain analytics provider, Glassnode has confirmed that those holding bitcoins that are more than a year old are extremely reluctant to sell them.
The hardcore hodlers are the ones that buy up BTC when there are volatile downswings in price, often setting their bids when the asset is tanking hard. This action can be seen on-chain and has been detailed in the firm’s weekly analysis.
Glassnode classifies long-term holders as those with coins older than 155 days and short-term holders as those younger. It revealed that at the recent high of $52.8K, almost 17% of the coin supply was owned by short-term holders and in profit.

Bitcoin Price Outlook
Ignoring the fake news-induced spike hours ago, Bitcoin has remained relatively flat over the past 24 hours. Walmart did not partner with Litecoin, and the $2,000 BTC candle was short-lived, lasting about an hour before a similar red one followed it.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin trades at $45,400 according to Tradingview, gaining almost a percentage point over the past 24 hours.
It has been trending downwards over the past week, however, having lost just over 14% since the same time last Tuesday.
A golden cross has just occurred on the daily time frame with the 50-day moving average crossing above the 200-day, which is a bullish sign in the longer term. However, BTC is currently trading below both indicators, so this could be short-lived.
