Data from on-chain analytics firm Glassnode shows that more than a third of BTC supply is held by long-term transactors (LTHs) – a new all-time high.

Long term holders incur unrealized losses
Profitability has taken a serious hit in recent days, and the on-chain data confirms even the most experienced investors.

As BTC/USD collapsed to a two-year low of $15,600, investors started to lose big, and at the current levels of $17,200, things are not much better.

Glassnode shows that LTHs held 35.4% of the BTC supply – more than 5.9 million coins – at a loss on November 9, falling just 1% on November 10.

Short-term holders (STHs) held another 17% of supply at a loss, and STHs in earnings accounted for just 0.06% of supply on November 9.
