According to Glassnode, Bitcoin (BTC) holders who bought their assets between 2017-2020 are not selling their Bitcoin. Certainly this points to the fact that many believe the price of Bitcoin (BTC) will soar once again. 

In fact, based on the responses to the team the crypto community only further solidifies their plan to hold their assets and await the inevitable boom. After all, it is not only the holders and the community awaiting a massive Bitcoin bullrun.
