As of today, buying bitcoin has been profitable for…

99.7% of all days since 2013-04-28.

Bitcoin volume

The volume traded yesterday was $36,985,055,355, down from $49,064,800,278 the day before. High volume indicates that a significant price movement has stronger support and is more likely to be sustained.

Market capitalisation

Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $330,475,167,134, up from $330,218,014,062 the day before. That’s the highest it’s ever been.

Fear and Greed Index

The sentiment is still in Extreme Greed again at 86 today. This is a record length of time that the index has spent in greed and it’s important to note that the index doesn’t stay this high very often, so a pullback would not be surprising. Equally, the index has only been around since 2018 and this bull run has already exhibited some curious behaviours in comparison with those in the past.

In/Out of the money

For any address with a balance of tokens, ITB identifies the average price (cost) at which those tokens were purchased and compares it with the current price. If the current price is higher than average cost, address is ‘In the Money’. If the current price is lower than the average cost, the address is ‘Out of the Money’.
