Just recently, the onchain data and research company Glassnode published a report that introduces variations of Bitcoin’s Spent Output Profit Ratio (SOPR) and Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) Ratio. Glassnode analyst, Rafael Schultze-Kraft, explains the difference between long-term holders and short-term holders in order to analyze the behaviors of these types of investors.

Assessing Bitcoin Spending Behaviour

Ever since bitcoin (BTC) touched an all-time high at $61,782 per unit market prices have been a bit more tumultuous. Currently, BTC is hovering just above the $55k handle and it happened awfully close to the anniversary of March 12, 2020, when Bitcoin’s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) Ratio dropped to 0.88.

Basically an MVRV is a calculation that divides market value by realized value every day. It can give someone a sense of what the “fair value†just might be when looking at the two combined.

Researchers from Coinmetrics show that after the MVRV ratio dropped to 0.88 on ‘Black Thursday‘ 2020 (March 12), one year later the MVRV has improved. “On March 12th, 2021 it closed at $57,335, a gain of over 10x (1,000%),†explains Nate Maddrey and the Coin Metrics’ team.

Prior to March 12, 2020’s one-year anniversary, Glassnode’s cofounder and CTO, Rafael Schultze-Kraft, published a report called “Breaking up Onchain Metrics for Short and Long Term Investors.†In the report, Schultze-Kraft introduces new variations of the SOPR (Spent Output Profit Ratio) and the MVRV ratio, in order to assess long-term holders (LTH) and short-term holders (STH).

As MVRV calculates the divide between market value and realized value, SOPR is an indicator for observing loss and profits. “The SOPR (Spent Output Profit Ratio) indicator acts as a proxy for overall market profit and loss,†a study guide published by Glassnode Academy notes.

The study published by Schultze-Kraft shows how the new variations can categorize bitcoin (BTC) by assessing holding behaviors.

Glassnode’s research notes that other studies have tried to assess holding behaviors like Spent Output Age Bands, HODL waves, and Bitcoin Dormancy figures. The new variations Schultze-Kraft says helps researchers identify industry stakeholders.

“Our approach is to break up onchain activity according to two major industry stakeholders: Short Term Holders (STH) and Long Term Holders (LTH),†Schultze-Kraft writes. “We categorise these two investor types using information on coin age.â€

This data gives the researchers statistics on the number of bitcoins that have not moved since a certain date. The report further notes that LTH bitcoins represent a great number of UTXOs:

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Glassnode highlights that onchain transaction volume accounts for 1 million BTC per day. Schultze-Kraft highlights that the researchers can infer that “to a large extent it is the same set of coins that are being transferred in the network over and over again.â€

Furthermore, by observing historical UTXO movements, Glassnode can calculate the “probability of a UTXO being spent as a function of its age/lifespan.â€

“Thus, our assumption is that if a UTXO exceeds a certain lifespan threshold in the ballpark of 100–200 days, those coins are in the hands of market players that are less prone to speculate and trade based on short timeframes — Long Term Holders,†the study notes.

“Conversely,†the study adds. “UTXOs that are spent earlier, are owned by Short Term Holders.†When defining LTH and STH data based on age Schultze-Kraft writes that a minimum of 155 days is considered a Long Term Holder (LTH). Meanwhile, “Short Term Holders (STH) are defined by all UTXOs with a lifespan of less than 155 days,†Glassnode’s “Breaking up Onchain Metrics†study suggests.

Glassnode’s study stresses that bitcoin spending behaviour is important and it explains how specific market participants will react to a degree. As Bitcoin price performance continues to impress, it becomes increasingly important to assess how different market participants are reacting to elevated prices,†Glassnode details.

“Conversely, once a coin passes our 155 day threshold to become a LTH held coin, it is increasingly unlikely to be spent on a statistical basis, often only coming back to life during volatility and at higher prices in bullish markets,†Glassnode analyst Schultze-Kraft’s report emphasizes.
